Show Description

A lightweight insulating layer that's the definition of a core piece. It's a tech layer that works for skiing, climbing and assorted backcountry hits. But the style is intentionally spare, so it won't look out of place in town. The synthetic and wool blend is warm for its weight and efficiently moves moisture during alpine pushes or threshold workouts. And the hood, cuffs an hem seal in heat when the pace starts to tick down.

  • Fabric is double knit polyester, wool, nylon and spandex.
  • Polyester outside face is abrasion resistant and won't soak up moisture.
  • Wool inner face is warm and soft against your skin.
  • Flatlocked seams and low profile zippers won't snag when layering.
  • Low-profile hood fits under a helmet.
  • 2 front zippered hand pockets.
  • Elastic edge binding at cuffs, hem and hood.
