Norrona Women's Lyngen Alpha90 Vest
### Norrona Says ###
Our most breathable insulation vest.
This lightweight vest is made for ski touring but is also great for general outdoor wear, especially mid to high-intensity activities, due to its excellent breathing and insulation properties.
The face fabric is a lightweight double-weave recycled nylon aero100 fabric because it provides a perfect combination of low weight, breathability, and wind protection, plus a little bit of stretch for better movement. It's a durable 20D ripstop quality with PFC-free DWR treatment for additional water resistance.
The jacket is lined with premium Polartec® Alpha® insulation, the world-leading breathable insulation engineered to provide consistent warmth while continuously releasing excess body heat and allowing outstanding breathability during activity.It insulates the user when highly aerobic as well as when less active.
The Alpha fabric is a highly open-knit recycled Polartec® Alpha® 90 (90 grams/m2), which offers consistent warmth while continuously releasing excess body heat and allowing excellent breathability during activity, both the "stop" and "go" phases.
Key features include: Hand pockets and a chest pocket with zipper closure, a beanie-compatible hood with one-hand adjustment, an inner placket to prevent cold spots, and an elastic bottom hem.
The vest has a technical fit with a slightly longer back for extra protection.

Pertex Quantum uses incredibly fine yarns, precisely woven to provide a very lightweight yet strong and durable fabric for its weight. Its softness allows down and synthetic insulation to fully loft. This fabric is windproof.
Polartec® Alpha® starts with a highly efficient insulation fabric, which is based on the Polartec® Thermal Pro® High Loft technology platform. This technology is uniquely suited to create warmth without weight, and exceptional breathability, compressibility, and dry times via high loft fibers in a low density knit. Current market synthetic insulations are not breathable enough to handle the ”go” phases of most backcountry pursuits. They are typically additional garments that must be carried for use during the static period. Polartec® Alpha excels at providing comfort for users on the move.
