Why we made this
A versatile mid layer for days in the mountains — whether it be climbing or other activities, this super light active insulation will keep you warm no matter what.
  • 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 Made from Polartec® Alpha® Direct — the same insulation that was originally made for the U.S. Special Forces when they needed an advanced insulating fabric in their combat uniforms — the Nitro offers pared back performance.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.
  • Design features
    Polartec® Alpha® Direct insulation for weightless warmth (contains 78% recycled content)
    Highly breathable and fast-drying pullover
    Regulates core body temperature
    Super packable, rolls into its own hood

Lightweight Warmth
I found this garment through a Utube blogger living in Australia.
The garment is lightweight and fits very well.
As I have not had an opportunity to wear it for it's intended purpose owing to the lockdown here in the UK.
Customer Service was good as I had to use my step sons Australian address to purchase it and he posted it to me.
I think the manufacturer could go into larger sizes and international shipping as the global market is the way forward.
I like the garment and commend it to the reader of this review.

First impressions
Slim fit (as described). I normally wear a size large and this size in the hoodie fits fine.

Hood adds warmth.

So lightweight. I've worn it trail-running in the evening (temps 12C). It keeps me warm, but still breathes to wick moisture.

Very warm, very light but odd sizing.
Really light and really warm but if its a little windy, you'll know about it. You need another layer underneath or a windbreaker over the top. Im normally a small but it's too tight under the arms, had to get a medium.

Superb "active" ultralight midlayer
Very warm (for its weight), very light, nice on the skin, versatile and quick drying. As part of the learning curve, it took me some time to realize it's completely air-permeable - i.e., even in slightly-windy conditions, if it's cold enough, a windproof layer should be added. Its weight is one of its fortes - it weighs half of what my go-to power-dry fleece hoody weighs. The only downside for me is the lack of zipper - even a 1/4 or 1/2 length zipper to help with excessive heat buildup.

Got this for husband. He wore it non stop for weeks, no joke
I’m a fairly new ambassador. I got medium for my husband (174cm/72kg). He’s worn them on two expeditions (he’s a film guy) to Cholatse & Kilimanjaro. He wore them every day for 10-15 days on both trips and claims he didn’t stink! Lightweight, warm, pack able. As with the women’s - an essential piece! Good close to skin or as a mid layer

Great active mid- layer
Great technology-is very warm for weight and dries extremely quickly. Excellent for walking or x-country skiing around freezing.
Pocket is not particulrly useful and the hood is pretty poor though, would really benefit from a shawl collar.
Fits slim in the shoulders and forearms so perhaps size up if you are athletically built or want a long sleeve base under.

Very nice ultralight mid-layer.
It looks and feels good. Still had no chance to use it on trial. Looking forward for it.

Good idea but room for improvements
A bit too skinny, it’s tight under the armpits, despite a size l usually ample for me, hence the very long sleeves. Is a bit tight at the neck as well. The pocket is useless and should be traded for a 1/4 zip.
Otherwise, unbeatable weight/warm balance.

Can you ship to USA?
calhan on Dec 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Calvin,
 
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,
The Macpac Team
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?
