The Cloud Nine Jacket is designed to provide full waterproof protection and insulation for the coldest days without sacrificing breathability, in a women’s-specific fit and design. It’s one of the first jackets made from a combination of Polartec® NeoShell®, the most breathable waterproof fabric on the market, and Polartec® Alpha®, the first-ever breathable puffy insulation, originally developed for U.S. Special Operations Forces and now available through Strafe. Unlike down or classic synthetic fill, which require the use of “closed” fabrics, Polartec® Alpha® is a highly stable insulation that won’t poke through or migrate. This allows us to pair it with brushed fleece on the inside of the Cloud Nine Jacket for the creation of a puffy insulation package that’s not a vapor barrier, rather one that breathes with you for active warmth. We’ve found this combination of Polartec® NeoShell® and Polartec® Alpha® (100g in the body, 80g in the sleeves) to be more comfortable throughout a wider range of the coldest weather conditions than anything else, often eliminating the need for a midlayer.
