Brisk, cool, cold, or downright frigid—the Alpha Merino Air can handle it all. Using the latest and most advanced version of Polartec's renowned Alpha insulation, and adding merino wool, the Alpha Merino Air jacket punches way above its weight in warmth, breathability, and performance. Alpha Wool is used as interior insulation on the sleeve, front, and collar, while an outer softshell layer of Pertex Quantum Air provides an ultralight wind and water-resistant barrier to help trap heat while maintaining class-leading breathability. The back panel of the jacket is made from fleece-backed, Italian-milled recycled polyester to aid in breathability and mobility.
Our most technical riding jacket ever, the Alpha Merino Air uses our proprietary 3D patterning and carefully engineered on-bike fit for a streamlined fit that covers a wide range of temps and conditions.
"Velocio's Alpha Merino Air Jacket might just be the best winter jacket we have tried." - Dan Chabanov, Bicycling

The key to warmth without weight is the all-new Alpha Wool from Polartec. This novel version of the award-winning Alpha insulation incorporates merino wool fiber for added thermoregulation and moisture management. The body, sleeves and collar are all lined with this super soft and breathable insulation layer.
Our jerseys and bib shorts are intended to be form fit, providing compressive support, maximizing performance of the fabrics, and reducing fatigue and chafing.

I have worn the Air Merino Jacket for lengthy rides on days when the temperature hovered around -5 Celsius/23 Fahrenheit. I paired it with a Merino Base Mesh LS Base Layer, and Zero Bib Tights, and was plenty warm. The Alpha Wool provides a great deal of warmth and comfort, especially in the sleeves and the front of the jacket, and the outer softshell layer is a great barrier to the wind. The fabric in the back of the jacket has a good degree of stretch in it while also offering great breathability. I am 5'3" and 110 lbs. and I found the XS fit me well, with plenty of room for a base layer. I love the added visibility that the Fire Red colour provides, especially in the winter months.
