The dog days of winter: March through blowing wind and snow. Pause. Flake the ropes. Get fired up. For long approaches and cold routes, our Dual Aspect Hoody blurs the line between midlayer 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 tempests build. Other parts of the hoody (the side panels, hood, hem, cuffs and undersides of the arms) use stretchy Polartec Power Dry® fleece to minimize bulk, enhance breathability and ensure mobility. With a zippered chest pocket, zippered hand pockets that sit above harness line and a snug, balaclava-style hood.
