Show Description

For exacting mountain settings where balance is key to success. The Light Obsession Hoodie is a highly breathable layer you won't need to strip off as your intensity level rises. Wear it as a jacket in cool weather, layered under a protective shell, or carry it as a reserve layer when conditions are mild. Thermolite Micro insulation quilted to 20-denier lining provides all-over warmth and efficient moisture transfer, plus it's compressible enough to fit inside the chest pocket. Developed as an ultralight option for alpinists, hikers and skiers, it became a noted favourite of MEC’s gear testers who prized its all-day utility and its pared-back minimalist style.

  • Face fabric is lightweight 20-denier ripstop nylon that's very breathable but still wind resistant.
  • DWR finish sheds light precipitation.
  • Fully insulated with 60g of synthetic insulation.
  • Adjustable hood is compatible with climbing helmets.
  • Full length front zipper has an interior storm flap with a stiffener to prevent snags.
  • Raglan sleeves are comfortable under pack straps.
  • Zippered chest pocket doubles as a stuff sack.
  • Hand pockets store small essentials or warm frigid digits.
  • Elastic edge binding on cuffs and shockcord adjustable hem seal in heat.

Waterproofness

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.

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.

Wind-resistant
Length Below hip
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.
