With carefully selected materials and high performance, highly breathable insulation, the Gaea Jacket is specifically created for aerobic activities in cold temperatures and light weather. Lightweight, hydrophobic Polartec® Alpha® synthetic insulation is placed at the front and shoulders to offset direct exposure to wind and cold, providing warmth with minimal bulk. Lumin™ 100% nylon face fabric sheds wind and light precipitation, and the breathable, moisture wicking Torrent™ back panel facilitates ventilation and freedom of movement. Two easily accessible rear stash pockets hold gloves, hat or energy foods. An adjustable drawcord at the hem seals out cold, retractable thumbholes hold sleeves in place, and reflective blades on the back and sleeves improve visibility in low light conditions.
Polartec® Alpha® is a unique synthetic insulation combining lightweight warmth with exceptional breathability. The insulation’s knit construction is more stable and durable than traditional synthetics. This stability allows it to be used on air permeable open weave fabrics, allowing air to flow through the garment to help increase evaporation and moisture transport.
PARED TO THE ESSENTIAL
The Gaea blends minimalist design with technical intelligence in a piece that combines breathability, insulation, weather protection and ergonomic freedom. Features are pared to the essential, each selected to enhance performance during runs, cross country skis, snowshoe races and other cold weather, high output activities.
