A hybrid jacket that takes on more than you'd expect. By bonding soft shell fabric to fleece, this slim-fitting layer combines the warmth and breathability of fleece with the wind and waster resistance of a soft shell. The unique grid structure traps warm air in, while stay-warm features like handwarmer pockets, a chin guard, and a fitted hood make the Dual Aspect work well as a stand-alone jacket.
- Polartec Power Shield soft shell fabric is recycled polyester and spandex with a DWR finish.
- Polartec Grid knit fleece bonded inner is 70-denier polyester with a DWR finish.
- Side panels, hood and sleeves are polyester and spandex for movement and breathability in areas where you need less weather protection.
- Full zip with fold over chin guard.
- Form fitting hood slides under a helmet.
- Zippered hand pockets ride above a harness or hipbelt.
- Zippered external chest pocket.
- Elastic binding at hood, hem and cuffs to seal out weather.

Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Water-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.
|Waterproof with critically taped seams|
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
Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
