Here's what other sites are saying:

Climb, hike, tour--it doesn't matter how you get to the summit, just as long as you've got a great view and some great friends to appreciate it with. When you need breathable insulation for your active adventures, reach for the Rab Alpha Flux Jacket. It's designed with Polartec Alpha Direct 90 insulation, a soft and warm fleece that offers breathable warmth and plenty of mobility for those cold days when you're really moving. The shell fabric is made with a lightweight yet sturdy nylon for abrasion resistance when you're scaling granite walls or scrambling up rocky summits, and the insulated hood fits easily under a helmet for extra warmth in exposed conditions. Thumbholes provide added coverage and prevent bunching when you throw on a shell, while Polygiene Stay Fresh odor control technology gives your garment naturally-based, long-lasting freshness.

The Alpha Flux is shelled in a new super-soft yet durable, woven outer fabric which has a high level of air permeability. This is paired with their Thermic-lux light, stretch fleece in strategic areas of the body to allow freedom of movement and to reduce bulk.
