The Vortex Hoodie is made for the alpine approach. Appropriate as either a cold weather base-layer or all-season mid-layer, the Vortex offers extreme adaptability in a lightweight package. Warm but breathable Polartec® Power Grid™ offers moisture-wicking insulation in a lightweight package, while a slim-fitting hood and front zipper provide versatile venting. With reinforcements in high-abrasion areas for extended durability and sleek bicep pockets to keep essential gear close to hand, the Vortex is ready for an extended tour of duty in a range of environments.
Made with a unique grid construction that maximizes breathability and wicking, Polartec® Power Grid™ provides warmth without compromising on weight or compressibility. This makes it ideal in a lightweight insulating layer for active use. Combined with the hood, zipper and thumb-hole cuffs of the Vortex Hoodie, the result is a piece appropriate for a wide range of conditions and activities. Put up the hood, close the zipper, and utilize the thumb-holes for maximum warmth when beginning your approach. As you warm, remove the hood, unzip the zipper, and push up the sleeves for maximum venting
Whether you're on the mountain or in the city, the Vortex won't weigh you down. Weighing in at 7.9 ounces and compressible to the size of a water bottle, the Vortex can be stashed in your pack, ready to provide critical warmth when needed.
With inherent stretch and thumb-hole cuffs, the Vortex will keep you covered and unrestricted during dynamic movement. A sleek outer face ensures comfortable layering under a shell in inclement weather.
Equally at home on the mountain and in the city, the Vortex offers a slim, tailored fit with subtle nylon accents.
Dual bicep pockets provide streamlined storage that remains accessible under a rucksack, body armor, or harness.
