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!

Amazing garment!!

This is a great piece of clothing that clearly was crafted with a lot of love. Very warm, cozy, versatile, beautiful... Thanks Justin!!!

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!

Surprisingly warm!

This hoody is surprisingly warm compared to how light it is! Love the collar design! I went to Amicalola this past weekend for AT Gateways. Wore my new hoody and did a little hiking up Springer. Definitely my new favorite hiking hoody!

So far, it’s great!

Just got my hoodie today, and it is well crafted and fits great! I’m really excited to get out there and test it out.

no weight

As I write this I am wearing an Alpha Direct Rip-Back hoodie. It breathes perfectly, is remarkably light and provides a significant amount of warmth. I live and play in the Sonoran desert and this is the perfect warming layer. Even a very light shell to block the wind and the R factor is greatly increased.

Best alpha I’ve invested in!

Bought my Alpha Direct to take on the Appalachian trail! Customer service is phenomenal. I reached out about sizing and the amount of time to get it to me - as I am running out of time before I hit the trail. They were right on the sizing and had my hoodie just over a week! Also, I’m loving the length of this hoodie, as it is long enough to give my bum some coverage as well!

The do-it-all piece of gear!

I’ve worn it hiking, camping, running, and even around the house. Warm when it needs to be but breathes so as to not get over heated. Super versatile. Super lightweight. Great customer service. What are you waiting for?!

How about these apples—
