Description

The arms have an articulated cut to make movement easier and increase comfort and have been specifically designed to prevent hem lift when you’re reaching up. I have the alpine generator and cant fault it in any way. I cant comment on its warmth compared to the other two but it kept me warm enough camping on pen-y-fan at about -10c. I''ve also found it pretty much weather proof, not once have I felt wet whilst wearing it even in some pretty heavy rain. I doubt it will keep me dry in a prolonged downpour but then I would be wearing a hardshell if that were the case. For me, the Generator Alpine offers the best-performing hood of the three when wearing a helmet..."

Insulation 100gsm Primaloft One in body (plus some double-layering at the front); 60g in arms and hood

Filling: Primaloft One has a degree of wind and water resistance, and holds heat well when wet. I find the 100g per square metre weight used in the body to be just adequate when stationary, but not necessarily overkill for moving. The 60g filling in hood and arms helps reduce any possible clamminess. Zip: Robust and chunky two-way main zip with internal anti-snag draft-excluding baffle, which folds over the top of the zip to avoid scratching the chin. Zip: As with the Fitzroy this is another chunky two-way zip which feels like it'll really last the distance. The draft-excluding inside baffle has an anti-snag strip, and there's a fold-over chin guard. Sleeves: Is the average climber built like an orang utan? I didn't think I was unusually long in the body and short in the arms, but while I wish there were a little more length at the waist of the Flux, my hands almost completely disappear inside its sleeves – I've inches of material to spare here, enough to get in the way at times. It's fine if the Velcro wrist tabs are tightened of course, and does allow an unhindered high reach. As with the Rab, when worn over several layers I find the sleeves a teensy bit close-feeling when bending the elbow.

I’ve found the hood to OK with helmet although you can’t do the main zip all the way up. It’s massive without a helmet! The peaks not great, oven with the wire it could do with being stiffer. Maybe another elastic drawstring is needed to go around the top of the head like you find on hard-shells? The cuffs feature a part elasticated and part Velcro closure to ensure that they seal really tightly around your wrists or over gloves etc. and the hem is finished off with dual cord pullers to make cinching it up, even with gloves, a doddle.So, as an insulating piece it’s designed to fit pretty snug but has enough wiggle room under it for an extra layer on those really chilly days. Sleeves: These are long enough that I can pull my hands right in when walking glove-less, and good for raising arms when climbing. There's a simple perfectly functional Velcro cuff tab. The sleeves are cut roomy enough to layer over waterproofs, but only just. It's not a major problem, but when worn over several layers I find them slightly close-fitting when bending the elbow.
