You mean the quality of the nylon version? Alpha definitely seems to have got nylon figured out!TXFlyGuy said:Yes, I know. Leaning towards G&B as they offer side entry (hand warmer) pockets. Already stated, but the quality of the Alpha jacket was first rate. Everything from the stitching, to the cuffs / waistband, to the shell material.
Their still produce a limited number of their jackets in the States. It seems like they are restricted to making one colour of each of their models in the States. For example, the silver N-2B is made in the States.I don't think Alpha make any of their jacket in USA now, I've seen one Made in China MA-1, it is very nice. All the Made in USA jackets are deadstck I think. One more thing, dont go for their new M-65, the quality still good, but with very stupid design.
