Before I started ski touring and backcountry skiing, I was never on board with vests. I felt like they belonged on people you find in an L.L. Bean catalog, not on hardworking outdoor athletes. In my eyes they were purposeless. Then I started skiing up hill and experimenting with different clothing options and the vest started making a lot more sense to me. Often, I only need to keep my core warm while I was pumping hard up the skin track and the vest, being lightweight, and more minimal than even the lightest jackets, is perfectly suited to keep you warm, without suffocating your body. If vests in general work well for ski touring, then the Dynafit Mezzalama Alpha Vest falls into the "best in vest" category. Its insulation is the cutting edge Polartec Alpha material, designed for Special Forces in mountainous places like Afghanistan. it was created to insulate during rapid movement or even when you are standing still. This allows the piece to be more versatile, and allows you to be more comfortable doing more activities. If there is one thing I hate, it is stopping to micro adjust with my layers. I want to strap in and get to the top. If you are like me, then this vest is for you. It comes with a scuba hood that fits over helmets and has a DWR finish to flush off all but the heaviest rains and snows. It is clearly time to start re-imagining your layering system, with new pieces like this vest, it can be simplified while being more versatile.
