The Polartec®Power Dry® fabric offers a superior warmth to weight ratio, making this cozy fleece light to wear and super compactable.

Marmot's Thermo Hoody is made of polartec Power Dry fabric - which we are very familiar with - its a supremely comfortable fabric worn next to the skin or over a light baselayer and wicks sweat away from your body very efficiently.
Using Power Dry in a hooded jacket format means you can unzip as far as you need to for venting - or zip us to your chin and put the hood up. Power Dry works best next to skin or over a thin baselayer, if you wear it over anything thicker you will not get the benefits. This type of garment makes a nice top for 3 season hiking in all but the hottest conditions.
