Alpine Series

The New Zealand Alpine Team (NZAT)

They've ventured into the depths of New Zealand's harsh alpine wilderness, scaled the most difficult rock faces you can find, and reached some of the world's highest peaks. Elite mountaineers, the New Zealand Alpine Team are all about pushing the limits, exploring unknown territory, and inspiring the next generation of alpinists. Their adventures are unlike any other, and they often find themselves in dangerous conditions, so having gear they can rely on is of the highest importance – in many cases, the right gear can even save lives.

Since 2013, we've been working alongside the NZAT to reinvent alpine gear. Our Alpine Series is the culmination of this partnership – a journey that has extended from the design floor to testing and refinement on some of the world's hardest alpine routes.

Alpine Series

The group teamed up with Macpac two years ago, forming a partnership that has led to the development of our technical mountaineering range – the Alpine Series.

Alpine Series products undergo a rigorous testing process, with prototypes regularly taken on NZAT trips to assess their performance. These products are then refined on the design floor, and retested as much as is required to ensure they are able to stand up to the demands of alpine climbing before they are released into the market.

HyperDRY™

HyperDRY™ down insulation is a premium water resistant down product from Allied Feather and Down. Produced using a proprietary nanotechnology treatment, HyperDRY™ has an exceptional long-lasting performance and quality. Its water-resistant properties reduce down clumping and heat loss when exposed to moisture, and also decreases drying times. This makes it a superior down fill choice for outdoor activities in damp conditions.

Features

  • Industry leading water resistant down performance
  • Environmentally friendly and ethical production methods
  • Reduces the impact of bacteria and mould that degrades down

Optimum lightweight insulation.

Andrew, 01/08/16

I bought one of these because I was after a lightweight insulation layer, and my research indicated the Supernova was one of the lightest garments of its type.
I now own two of these jackets. They are precisely what I needed. Exceptional warmth performance for their weight, and a great fit too. Obviously the push to minimise weight has trimmed off a few features you might expect to find in heavier down jackets, but it isn't lacking anything you really need.
I wore one of these while filming in exposed locations in the Catlins for four weeks, enduring brutal southerlies, and torrential driving rain and hail. Combined with a shell (which these slim jackets fit under easily) I was never cold.

Versaitility in it's own pocket

Santillan, 24/09/16

I use this insulation piece for anything and everything, from it's intended use in Alpinism, to back country fishing missions to travel and town wear.

I have put it through the wringer and it has held up to anything I have thrown at it in the two years I have owned it.

It's so light I don't hesitate to pack it on all my missions.

The best for lightweight warmth

Nick, 19/10/16

I love this jacket. I bought this because I am trying to get my pack weight down as low as i can sensibly go. This jacket is perfect for that, nice and light and nice and toasty.

Perfect

Christian, 08/12/16

I bought one 4 years ago and a second one last year. Not because the first one wore out although I wore it a lot but because I no longer want to be without and can't spend all winter in the same jacket :)
Great with a waterproof light outer shell.
And light enough to always be in the bag whenever I hit the mountains.

Can compete with any top US brand

Berend de Boer, 07/08/17

I had done quite a bit of research on jackets, and read a lot of reviews of the big names US light weight down jackets. Was a bit concerned about the fill weight of them, as reviewers remarked got a bit too cold when the temperature dropped. Then I found this one, just slightly more fill, but otherwise seemed a perfect equivalent of top brand US jackets. And only 260 grams!

I couldn't wait to try out this jacket, and took it to Tongariro National Park for an overnight camping trip. Just before dark it was 0 °C, night time temperatures dropped to -4 °C. I was perfectly warm wearing just a simple Merino base layer T-shirt and this jacket. Very good wind protection. Has the required hem draw cord. Instead of grabbing a fleece when admiring the views from the top, I grabbed this jacket, and I'm sold. This will be my go to layer from now on. Superhappy with this purchase.

Only drawback I can think of is that it doesn't have a hood draw cord. It's fine if you have the collar under your chin, if it's over your chin, there's too much space in the hood.

Avoid this jacket if you go outside.

Andy, 21/06/16

This jacket is super light primarily because it is made of tissue paper.
I wore it to and from work 5 times and it's already ripped...
Don't buy if you intend to go outdoors or do anything other than admire it on a coathanger.
