When it’s really chilly out, you need underwear that covers everywhere – including your head. This hoodie answers the call.
It’s made with a heavyweight, winter-worthy version of Power Dry® polyester. The sides, underarms, and cuffs are a lighter midweight version of the same fabric, for improved breathability and easy insertion into gloves.
Both fabric weights offer excellent moisture management – the inner side rapidly wicks moisture away from the body, while the outer yarns disperse dampness for quick evaporation. The inside features a "voided grid" construction that traps air for greater warmth and increased breathability.
- Made with Polartec® Power Dry® 93% polyester (60% recycled), with 7% spandex for ease of movement.
- Thumb loops prevent sleeve slippage.
- Neck logo is heat transferred, not sewn in, for increased comfort.
Wondering what to bring hiking? Even if you’re only planning to be out for a few hours on a day hike, it’s important to pack some essential items. Weather can change quickly outdoors, and something as simple as a rolled ankle might mean you’re out longer than expected.
The essentials for hiking and camping (or any activity in the backcountry) are often called “The 10 Essentials.” The 10 essentials list below is adapted from Mountaineering: Freedom of the Hills, which groups the essentials into systems.
Before you start packing
Be a smart hiker by being prepared. Knowledge and skills won’t fit in your backpack, but they’re critical to have – if you’re a beginner, check out local hiking groups and learn tips at MEC backcountry workshops. Know your route and plans before you leave, always leave a trip plan with a trusted friend, and make sure your footwear is trail-worthy and comfortable.
