MEC Forager Hoodie - Women'sProduct code 5031-954
A high-tech twist on tradition, the Forager works in the middle of a classic layering system with a base, mid-layer and shell for multi-day mountain trips. As your mid-layer, this hoodie insulates the body from external cold and moves moisture from base layers to your outerwear. Wear it for sniffing out secret powder stashes and ticking 4-star alpine gems. The high-loft fleece has long outer fibres to create and maintain loft, interspersed with dense microfibres that trap warm air. Incredibly warm, it's also 40% more compressible than a standard fleece garment.

- 2 zippered chest pockets.
