The dog days of winter: March through blowing wind and snow. Pause. Flake the ropes. Get fired up. Go. On long approaches and cold routes, our new Dual Aspect Hoody blurs the line between mid-layer and shell. An exclusive weather shedding, breathable and durable soft shell fabric package (Polartec Power Shield, with DWR finish, bonded to a Polartec Power Grid knit) insulates and protects key areas, while allowing for smooth layering under a jacket when the tempest builds. Stretchy Polartec Power Dry fleece in the hood, hem, side panels, cuffs and undersides of the arms minimizes bulk, enhances breathability and ensures mobility. With a zippered chest pocket, zippered hand pockets that sit above harness-line, and a snug balaclava-style hood. Fabric is bluesign approved.
