Warm, stretchy and breathable like you’d expect from Regulator® fleece, but with the added benefits of abrasion and weather resistance for extended versatility in shifting mountain conditions.
In mountains big and small, our new TechFace Hoody maintains fleece-like comfort along with extended protection. The stretchy, lightweight double-weave fabric (partially recycled polyester, with spandex) offers significantly more wind resistance and durability than our traditional R1®, with smoother layering. Its articulated pattern further encourages a full range of mountain mobility. An alpine-helmet-compatible, adjustable hood with laminated visor provides coverage and visibility through passing squalls. Detailing includes a pair of high, zippered handwarmer pockets (with venting mesh), an external zippered chest pocket, and sleek, low-bulk stretch-knit cuffs. The adjustable hem snugs via cords routed through the hand pockets, and the DWR (durable water repellent) finish sheds excess moisture.
Lightweight double-weave fabric is soft and warm next to skin but doesn’t trap excess heat; face is durable and treated with DWR (durable water repellent) finish to shed moisture

Bought one last summer and wear it year round. Loved it so much i bought a second one in another color. The weight is perfect and I love the length for wearing with leggings. Holds up well in the wash. Still looks new! Highly recommend.
