Show Description

This technical midlayer is lightweight and breathable enough for climbing or fast hiking in alpine terrain. The fabric is Polartec Power Stretch fleece that provides a good level of insulation for ticking your way up an exposed pitch. An external coating resists the abrasive properties of exfoliating granite and weathered lichen, and it presents a moisture resistant face to the elements when you're wearing the Slipstream as an outer layer.

  • Made of Polartec Power Stretch fleece, 90% polyester, 10% spandex.
  • Hard face finish on the flat surface of the fabric increases its resistance to abrasion and prevents it from getting scruffy.
  • Close fit hood won't block your vision.
  • Full-length zip with a fold-over chin guard.
  • Generous left chest pocket is accessible with one hand.

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.
