with the zip T they have been making for a long time with little if any changes because they did it right the first time. They just added this jacket not too long ago. Two things: #1-the hood makes for a great athletic layer for ice climbing, keeping ice from your back. Hard to find hoodies on technical thin layers. #2-the stretch cuffs with thumbholes complete it as an ice climbing layer.....I find this essential regarding any under layer working with my gloves to keep my hands and fingers their warmest. The heat generated from your arm movement runs down into your hands without being lost or cut off. Again, I have used the shirt variation of this product for years on rock and ice. This is the perfect compliment for warm ice days or cold rock days.
