Show Description

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.

  • Made of Polartec® High Loft polyester fleece with 72% recycled content. It provides an excellent compressibility, superb moisture transfer, and excellent breathability.
  • Yoke and hood are Schoeller soft shell with a Nanosphere DWR finish.
  • Hood has an adjustable shockcord.
  • Pockets are lined with polyester mesh.
  • 2 handwarmer pockets.
  • 2 zippered chest pockets.
  • Full-length internal storm flap behind zipper, with chinguard.
  • Drawcord hem to seal out drafts.
  • Machine washable in cold water, no fabric softeners or bleach. Tumble dry on low.

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
