The weight of the jacket itself was very warm yet much more comfortable and provided a much greater range of motion than a heavy parka. Now for the fun part. The Alpha features 35 different pockets.Yeah, you read that right, 35. That isn't including the zippered sleeves and side panels for access to belt-mounted gear. Finding all of them is a challenge; figuring out what each one is for really isn't. First, almost all of them are marked with a small icon that gives you a hint of what the pocket was designed to carry. From sunglasses to iPads, everything has a place in the Alpha. To sweeten the deal, each pocket has a distinctly different design with various linings and closures so every item is secure and safe. I wore mine for a couple of weeks; barely long enough to check out all of the Alpha's features. My first mission was to test the performance of the Alpha as a jacket; that is, whether it would keep me warm and comfortable.
Check and check; it did very well on both fronts. Next, I did my best to load it up with everything I carried along with me on a normal day. A pistol, two magazines, pen, keys, iPhone, wallet, flat badge, and a knife rounded out the list.
Even with all of this the Alpha felt great and wore about the same as it did empty. The location coupled with the specific design of each pocket distributed the weight exceptionally well. Just for grins I decided to get ridiculous and added two AR-15 magazines, an iPad, handcuffs, an ASP, my portable radio, and a second pistol.
The jacket was notably heavier but still well balanced and comfortable and held everything securely in its place. Believe it or not I still had several empty pockets.
