Show Description

Named for a classic 34-pitch route in the Bugaboos, and designed for moving rapidly in the mountains. The fleece is extremely lightweight and has the features of a true mid-layer. When you're working hard, you can shed your outer layer and the high air-permeability allows the wind to carry off heat and moisture, so you don't get soaked with sweat. When you start to cool down, pull on a shell jacket without feeling all bulked up, and the fabric continues to transport moisture vapour out and away.

  • Stretch fleece fabric is resilient and doesn't lose its loft. Made of 100% polyester.
  • Warm with high air-permeability to transport moisture.
  • Flatseam construction for comfort under layers.
  • Minimalist design and a cut suits the vertically oriented. The waist won't ride up when you're putting in a high piece, navigating a steep traverse, or swinging an ice tool.
  • Single zippered pocket (get over it, that's why you have a pack).
  • Enclosed drawcord at waist.

Windproofness

A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.

Durable water repellency
