  • Product Description
    A versatile mid layer for days in the mountains, whether it be climbing or other activities, this light active insulation will help to keep you warm. Made from Polartec® Alpha® Direct — the same insulation that was originally made for the U.S. Special Forces when they needed an advanced insulating fabric in their combat uniforms — the Nitro offers pared back performance. An evolution of fibre, Alpha® Direct eliminates the needs for a backing fabric and can be in direct contact with skin or other fabric layers, increasing breathability and reducing garment weight. Designed with alpinists and multi-sport athletes in mind, this minimalistic mid layer is warm and incredibly breathable.

Can you ship to USA?
calhan on Dec 17, 2019
Unfortunately Macpac isn’t currently shipping to USA. We hope to get this rectified in the near future.
In the meantime, the only way would be to get it shipped to a friend or family member that lives outside of the USA, and they could then re-send onto you.

Kind regards,

Has anyone else purchased one of these? I have, excessive fluff and pulling. To the point where covered in it. I've washed it too, still fluff!!!
Danwp80 on May 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I washed it once and the fibre loss decreased a bit. Maybe you washed it a couple more times since spring and the self-dismantling stopped?

I love the asphalt color! unfortunately my size is no longer available, the M. When will new sizes be available?
As I have already read many comments, I agree too, the female version is more beautiful without the pocket, but I think it's not just because of the pocket, all brands have a logo on the chest, too visible, written white on black, all brands the same in the same place; It's damn hard to find a jacket without written on the chest pocket, and that doesn't appeal to many people.
I believe that the fashion of the flashy logos displayed all over the dress is firm in the 90s.
The women's version with a unobtrusive label on the neck is really cool. Finally a different place to put the logo, for a different and innovative product.
Ros S on Sep 13, 2020

We look to be getting more stock coming available at the start of next year.
