Kinetic Alpine Action 2 Forget everything you think you know - the Kinetic Alpine will change the way you dress in the mountains. Fully waterproof, highly breathable and stretchy, this is a radical re-approach to protective yet comfortable clothing systems. Perfectly combining the supple, flexible nature of a softshell with the protection and durability of a hardshell, the Kinetic Alpine contours to your body shape. Wicking away any sweat generated on steep ground, it's easy to forget you are wearing a waterproof until the showers roll in. At this point you no longer have to pause and reach into your pack – simply push on.

I have the normal Kinetic ProFlex jacket.. what is the difference between this and the new Alpine version? Im assuming the alpine is a bit more burly and it has 'ceramic wear' patches which mine does not.. but seems to be the same jacket though?

The main differences  I believe between this new Alpine version and the original are:

Redesigned hood- To be more helmet compatible and more adjustable. 

Ceramic prints- Placed on high wear areas to reduce abrasion. 

Hem drawcord- To get a closer fit. 

These changes have resulted in a slight weight increase.
