Technical performance hidden in a classic hoody style! This functional pullover takes the traditional athletic piece to the next level.

The most durable fleece out there, breathable, quick-drying, Polartec Thermal Pro® has a knit exterior and a soft, brushed inner face

Trimmed with contrast-color fleece in the collar, cuffs and hem

Underarm gusset panels extend the range of motion and add detail lines

Small stretch-woven laminate sleeve pocket with welt-closure zipper and subtle Arc Teryx® logo

Two laminate zippered handwarmer pockets are large enough for stashing a light pair of gloves

Voted 5/5

One of my favorite Arcteryx products and the one that started my love-affair with them. Made of Thermal Pro this is pretty warm for its weight but does not block any wind to speak of. Love the hood and it fits over a helmet. I have worn this at a top layer on not so cold days, under my Gamma SV or shell, or over my Gamma and under my shell. Any way I use it I definately feel the warmth it adds. Nice front pockets to store stuff in too.

The Thermal Pro has pilled a little over the last year but not too much yet. I think all Thermal Pro products will probably do the same though.

There is also a non-hood version which I have too and love it as well but I really like having the hood to pull up when the temp drops.
