Highly Technical, Absurdly Comfortable
The Kyros edition of the A5 - Stretch Alpha Sweater, the Aptus Hybrid Softshell K5 Jacket delivers the best of both worlds by combining light, stretchy, and comfy construction with long-lasting durability and heat-packing insulation. Dynamic three-layer construction wicks up moisture and transports it out while hanging onto warmth, and the wind- and water-resistant softshell pairs with an insulated, adjustable hood to ward off nasty weather.

1st Layer Wicks
Double-knit Verso Weave™ fleece provides a blanket-soft feel and uses a circular grid pattern to create air channels, keeping you dry by funneling sweat up to the second layer.
2nd Layer Insulates
Polartec® Alpha® Insulation takes the hot sweat sent up from the first layer and then hangs onto the heat to keep you toasty while kicking the moisture up to the third layer.
3rd Layer Protects
The third and outermost layer uses a durable water repellent (DWR) finish to seal out freshly shed sweat and light rainfall, and features a durable softshell design with 4-way stretch to ward off winds and keep you mobile.
Stretchy, adjustable, and designed to go over climbing helmets, the hood ensures versatile fitting options when you need extra insulation and weather protection.

Own many Beyond Clothing jackets, base layers. Get many compliments. Always comfortable. Really like the K5. Much softer than typical soft shells, like the pockets, comfortable liner.
Keeps me warm, helps repel water, and keeps my dry. Perfect for these colder months especially when out in the mountains, hiking, being on the water wether you’re kayaking or fishing, or heading out into town on a cold day.
I have written a couple of reviews as a Beyond customer. I am a fanboy, but this jacket is nice. I purchased mine on Black Friday. You should buy something else, then write a review and use the 15% code on this jacket. Let’s get on with the review: the jacket is essentially a light jacket with a waffle top long underwear sewn into it. The jacket is warm for how extremely light it is. The jacket seams weather proof; I had light snow fall in 13 degrees and the jacket with a sweatshirt overtop seemed more than adequate. Time will display the garment’s durability. I did find the jacket quiet during movement and flexible. Weakness: PRICE! I would refer to the playbook I suggested to purchase one of these. I don’t know if I could justify the $200+ regular price tag. It seems that a person could buy a cheaper jacket and a pair of Beyond merino underwear( which is simply the best underwear).
Half off was a steal
Chicago weather can change rapidly. Whether just walking the dog or excursions downtown... my bright red Aptus Hybrid K5 Jacket is the bomb!
