The Alchemy Jacket is a mid-weight Polartec fleece jacket in a zoned construction designed to maximise temperature regulation.
Using a mix of light and mid-weight Polartec Power Grid fabrics, the Alchemy Jacket offers both high wicking and quick drying qualities and is treated with Polygiene STAY FRESH odour control treatment, to ensure the jacket remains in a wearable condition after multi-day use. A slim fit lends this jacket to active use and would make a great all-day fleece to keep warm in the mountains.
This zoned construction fleece jacket utilises both medium and lightweight Polartec Power Grid fabrics, both which are highly wicking and quick drying. Its ability to wick sweat away from your skin is fantastic and it's so comfortable to wear. The internal face of the fabric has a grid pattern which enhances comfort and helps with that wicking action. The fleece has been treated with Polygiene Stay Fresh odour control that neutralizes odour by stopping the growth of odour-causing bacteria and fungi.
The Alchemy Jacket has a simple feature set of two zipped hand warmer pockets, a full front zip and flatlock low bulk seams so it can be used as part of a comfortable layering system. It's a slim fit so can be worn by itself as a thick baselayer or worn over the top of a lighter baselayer. It's a similar jacket to Rab's Baseline Jacket but without the hood and thumb loops, just as comfortable but lighter in weight.
