Cold Smoke Co Alpha-Lite Pullover

With autumn now in full flow and winter right around the corner, attention inevitably turns to outerwear and there aren’t many brands that we’d put our trust in more in this regard than the guys at California based, Cold Smoke Co. This faith is as a result of awesome products like this Alpha-Lite Pullover which is the perfect garment for any adventure enthusiast this autumn on the hunt for a piece of outerwear that looks great and makes short work of anything that mother nature can throw your way.

The Cold Smoke Co Alpha-Lite Pullover ($275) is one of the American apparel brand’s cornerstone products and its popularity certainly isn’t difficult to fathom. This cracking piece of outerwear has been carefully designed to be your Swiss army knife of adventure apparel because not only is it incredibly robust, cozy, lightweight and stowable, it is also impressively water-repellant, wind-proof, and ultra-adaptive to physical activity. Not to mention looking great too.

Take to the Trails

Outdoor adventure was certainly at the forefront of Cold Smoke Co’s thinking when they were designing the Alpha-Lite Pullover and this shines through in the performance that it delivers. This first class piece of outerwear is built for comfort and protection against wind and rain and Cold Smoke Co have crafted the Pullover from the highest quality Japanese water-repellant ripstop nylon they could find for the ultimate in performance potential. For ease of entry they have also added a water-proof side zipper.

The Cold Smoke Co Alpha-Lite Pullover is exactly the sort of apparel that we love here at Coolector HQ and it uses Polartec Alpha adaptable insulation to keep you warm on those days with unforgiving weather conditions. Alpha Insulation was created for use in U.S. military Special Forces gear, for a wide range of activity and environments and is clever because it negates the need to shed or add layers.

This versatility is a result of low-density fibres that will keep moisture vapour moving effortlessly through the fabric which results in incredibly efficient regulation of warmth and transference of moisture. The Cold Smoke Co Alpha-Lite Pullover ($278) weighs in at just 13.5 oz and it is made in California and warmth rated for all season wear. If you’re on the hunt for an exceptionally functional piece of outerwear this autumn that looks great to boot, look no further than this.

Feature Packed Design

As is the case with all the apparel from Cold Smoke Co, they have gone above and beyond in terms of making their wares as functional as possible. The Alpha-Lite Pullover is particularly versatile, however, and has some excellent design features such as custom matte black logo snaps, microsuede trimmed collar for comfort and warmth, kangaroo stow pocket, elastic cinch waist and cuffs, and snap secured chest and side-seam hand warmer pockets.

For any man who demands the ultimate in outdoor performance, Cold Smoke Co are a brand that needs to be on your radar and the Alpha-Lite Pullover in your closet. This exemplary offering is a long time favourite of ours here at The Coolector and now is the perfect time of year to add it to your collection of outerwear choices.
