Push peaks without soaking in sweat.
Developed by Salewa athletes trekking in the fickle weather of the Alps, the Men's Pedroc Alpha Insulated Jacket provides airy-light warmth and water-resistance to fast alpine missions. Polartec Alpha insulation traps precious body heat when you're pushing up a long summit while maintaining air permeability to expel excess body heat. This way, you won't sweat profusely on the way up, only to shiver uncontrollably at the summit while you're soaked in perspiration.
The jacket's outer shell employs a lightweight and durable nylon fabric, treated with a DWR finish that beads off passing showers and dewy mornings from soaking through. Polartec Power Dry stretch panels along the back and sides maintain fluid mobility, so you're never restricted while hiking up a rugged talus field or reaching for a precarious hold on a ridgeline scramble. Both of these fabrics benefit immensely from the mesh lining, which accelerates the moisture-wicking process as you start to sweat profusely on the last mile towards your peakbagging objective.

Well thought out
Someone thought through the design of this thing. Alpha insulation up front, shoulders, and a big on the back. I wish they put some wind protection on the collar, but maybe those of us that actually push the body need to vent up there. It runs large. Iâm 5â10â 150, and had to return the M because it was like draping a tent on me.
