TAD Javelin Insulator

Destined to be one of the most versatile jackets in your arsenal, the Javelin Insulator delivers lightweight performance across changing climates and activity levels.


Strategic insulation in the torso, shoulders, bicep, and hood minimizes core heat loss, while a synthetic grid along the back and arms provides maximum breathability and wicking performance, even under a pack. This symbiotic combination of materials balances heat loss through convection, while strategically preventing over-heating during exertion under load.


A true 4-season midlayer, Javelin is equally at home as a stand-alone insulator in moderate to cool temperatures or paired with a shell for colder or wet conditions. Lightweight and compressible, the Javelin Insulator will earn its place in the most crowded pack.


Polartec’s revolutionary Alpha® material, developed alongside US Special Forces and now adopted as their standard issued insulation, is an advanced, breathable insulation technology that works during both rest and dynamic phases in the field. Used to cover the core in the Javelin Insulator, Alpha provides warmth and breathability, without the need to don or doff layers during variable pursuits.


Polartec® Power Grid™ is made with a unique grid construction that maximizes breathability and wicking. By utilizing it in areas frequently covered by load bearing equipment, the Javelin Insulator provides warmth while minimizing the dangers of sweat during cool weather activity.

    Very good, but expensive.

    Posted by Jules on 21st Sep 2019

    I've owned this for two years now, wearing it almost everyday for Autumn, Winter and Spring. I generally wear a gilet over the top of it, when the temperature drops.

    The top is exceptionally well made and very comfortable, my only minor grumble, is in agreement with one of the other reviews here; it's not as articulated as it should be for an active piece of clothing. In a weird way, this has made me use it more - as I use it as my everyday jacket for commuting and general wear instead of active outdoor pursuits.

    All in all, a great jacket, if you can stomach playing TAD's huge price tag.

    Amazing mid layer

    Posted by Wouter on 23rd Feb 2019

    Bought this after a long debate with myself about buying 'again" a light jacket.
    This piece is really what it states.
    Technical Polartec Alpha is really something amazing.
    Enough insulation on the front and arms to keep you warm, enough ventilation on the rear to cool down.
    I'm wearing this piece now only for a few days, from -2 in the morning till 15 °C in the afternoon and amazingly it regulates temperature so that you always have a perfect feel.
    It is expensive (as all things TAD) but the quality is above standard and as far as I know, I'm about the only one in Belgium that has this layer.
    I prefer that more then wearing TNF, Superdry, Carrhart or similar.

    Great Jacket

    Love this one. Very comfy. Nice finish. Flawless stitching. I wish my whole wardrobe was made up of TAD.

    Not sophisticated enough for the asking price

    Posted by Mark on 28th Feb 2018

    I am normally a TAD fan and over time have owned a number of their softshell s and cargo pants. I bought this item as a high activity layering piece as I'd had a good experience of a Rab product using the same alpha insulation. Unfortunately the garment although very well made as is usual with TAD was quite a bulky fit meaning it would be difficult to layer. Also, there didn't seem to be any articulation built into the design. This means it rises up really easy when stretching. I'm not sure where this garment is designed to fit in as it's a little bulky to layer and not articulated enough for high activity.
