Salewa Pedroc Hybrid Alpha

Polartec Alpha insulation fabric features in softshell jacket


Polartec’s signature insulating fabric, Polartec Alpha, has been chosen for the new Pedroc Hybrid Alpha Softshell Jacket from Salewa.

The breathable and water-repellent jacket is ideal as a mid or outer layer and comes with detachable sleeves and perfect for demanding days in the mountains.

Polartec’s Alpha insulation offers a new, “active” technology that regulates core body temperatures and eliminates the need to shed or add layers during the day.

Alpha insulation works by placing low density fibres between air permeable woven layers. Creating a more efficient fabric for transferring moisture away from the skin and regulating warmth.

Using body mapping Salewa has included stretchy inserts where they’re needed most and an innovative pattern design for enhanced comfort and aesthetic. Ergonomically designed sleeves and shoulders offer a good, athletic fit.
