Current Lead Time is Approx 3-4 weeks to ship.

Color: Waikawa Grey (grey/blue/lavender tones) 
Material: Polartec Alpha Direct 90 gsm
Garment Weight: Approx. 5.7oz/161g (for medium size w/ Kangaroo Pocket)

**Button Snap color shown on listing photos are black for reference**

*Note, +$15.00 for kangaroo pocket.  If you do not want the pocket added and rather a standard hoodie without pockets, choose the “None (standard) option in STEP 3*

  • Double-Snap Hood Buff/Balaclava
  • New 3-panel hood for a more form fitting, “scuba” style hood
  • Shock-Cord Adjustable hood with looped cord pull
  • Shock-Cord Adjustable waist
  • Button the hood around your neck forming a warm and cozy buff or unsnap for full ventilation mode
  • Elastic wrist cuffs
  • Use in a wide range of temperatures; 30°F-80°F (know your own limits, test your gear before relying on it!)

    The Alpha Direct in the 90 gsm weight falls in the ultra-light category, medium size coming in at only approximately 5.7oz. Use it in all four seasons as an active layering system. One of the most versatile and active layering materials on the market. Did I mention, this stuff dries insanely fast too!

    *New Updates for 2024:

    -2-panel hood updated to a 3-panel hood for a more formed fit. It rids the hood of the seam down the top center that results in a peak. The 3-panel has two seams offset on the top sides so it lays flatter and fits nicer with a hat as well.
    -New logo tags. More discrete and sewn into the side seam rather than on to the front of the garment.

    Waited for a long time, but worth it.

    Be prepared before placing an order, because it took me two months to receive it. Please understand that only Justin is maintaining the company, handling everything from design and production to shipping and customer service.

    Speaking of clothing, in today's highly industrialized world, it's very satisfying to see Justin create such successful niche products by hand. This garment is impeccably designed. As an Asian male standing at 5'10" and weighing 135 lb, opting for size S fits me perfectly. The sleeve length and overall fit are just right, which is quite rare. The material of Alpha Direct 90 is a well-balanced choice for outdoor wear, providing excellent insulation despite its lightweight. The vibrant color scheme and personalized touch enhance its fashion appeal. For me, it's a garment I can't get enough of.

    Additionally, Justin is incredibly attentive. He promptly responds to emails and addresses any concerns you may have. I hope he continues to create even better products.

    Alpha Direct Rip-Back Hoodie 90 - Light Moss Review

    The proof will be when I am on the PCT in April but the hoodie arrived within the time frame promised. Fit is great. It is light weight and not to be used as an out layer without some protection . Looking forward to using this on the trail.

    Two thumbs up!

    I actually picked up a FarPointe hoodie a couple weeks ago, which is perfectly fine. This one is just nicer with the snaps, shock cords, and the elastic in the wrists. I will definitely keep my eye open for future offerings!

    High Quality

    My first alpha direct product, and I’m completely satisfied. I gave my specifications (I’m tall and lean) for the custom hoodie, and it fits perfectly. The garment seems to be more durable than I expected. I think I’m going to wear it in everyday life, and on the trail!
