black crows + Polartec collaborate on women's Ventus Hybrid Alpha Jacket (10/17/18)
As part of its FW 2018 collection, black crows introduces the women's Ventus Hybrid Alpha Jacket.
Made from Polartec® Alpha®, the first-ever breathable insulation that introduced the concept of active
insulation, black crows brings a touch of style to this hi-tech and ultra-functional piece of kit.
Originally developed for U.S. Special Forces to create a superior insulation system for extreme
temperature variations and the start-stop conditions of combat, black crows is repurposing this
technology for adventure skiing. Unlike down or classic synthetic fill, Polartec® Alpha® insulation is
highly stable, and the air exchange tech allows it to be paired with more open and breathable fabrics,
enabling a new level of breathable comfort in an insulated garment. A stable core of lofted knit fibers
prevents fiber migration to keep a uniform consistency, even after heavy use and repeated laundering.
"We discovered the Polartec Alpha fabric a few seasons ago and it seemed clear it had to become part
of our adventure skiing range. It's very comfortable, warm and breathable. If I had to choose a single
under layer to bring along in my backpack, this would be it."
- black crows cofounder Camille Jaccoux
The clean-cut front has padded chevrons on the shoulders, and the lining of the sleeves and hood are
decorated with a map of the Mont-Blanc massif rendered in black and white chevrons.
