The Alpha-lite is an urban styled shirt-jacket and a technical performance mid-layer rolled into one. It features cutting edge performance materials including Japanese made water-repellant ripstop nylon, Polartec Alpha insulation, and YKK waterproof zippers. Proudly made in California.Polartec Alpha insulation was created for use in Special Forces gear, allowing it to adapt to a wide range of activity and environments without the wearer having to shed or add layers.  Alpha is made of low-density fibers that keep moisture vapor moving freely through the fabric resulting in super efficient regulation of warmth and transference of moisture.

ColdeSmoke Projects


CS Projects is our crowdfunding initiative for new designs. Ordering Project 4002 “The Alpha-lite Shirt Jacket” allows us to bring a new design to life in the most efficient and cost effective way. We return the favor by giving you a pre-sale discount of 20%. Since we make our styles in very small runs here in California, the completion and shipping is quick, but we often sell out, so pre-ordering guarantees you get your size and color.

We do overproduce our CS Projects initiatives, so we can provide exchanges and offer our gear to customers who missed the campaign.

By cutting out the middle-man and selling through our online store we can offer our outerwear at around half the price of selling it through a brick and mortar store. This means you get higher quality apparel at lower prices.
