The Impendor Full-Zip Hooded Fleece has been engineered for long days in the mountains when your heart rate is as variable as the weather and altitude. When you’re active the grid knit structure absorbs moisture and transfers it away from your body keeping you dry and, then when you’re inactive, warm. And that’s also when its insulating properties kick in. The efficient structure retains body heat without bulk or unnecessary weight. This mid-layer fleece also incorporates elastane into its fabric mix so won’t restrict reachy, overhead moves on ice or rock. Speaking of climbing, the hood fits snugly under a helmet and elasticated cuffs mean the sleeves won’t get in your way. The elasticated hem prevents chilling winds from blowing up your spine, but if you do want some ventilation, you can open the mesh hand pockets. Layer this with a performance shell jacket from the Impendor range for the best protection during alpine adventures.
