Adaptive Layering Protective System

The A.L.P.S. program has been developed to provide Karbon customers with the immediate recognition of garment performance and function. The flexibility of combining NUCLEO, THERMIC, and EXTREM garments ensures that anyone choosing Karbon apparel will be dry, warm, and comfortable, regardless of their activity or the surrounding weather conditions.

The ALPS icons provide a quick reference to the function and performance of every Karbon item.
