The Mountain Equipment Eclipse Hooded Jacket is a lightweight, stretchy, full zip fleece, perfect for long rock routes and classic alpine ascents. Excellent warmth to weight ratio.
Mountain Equipment says:.
With two zoned weights of fast drying Pontetorto® grid fleece and our Active fit the Eclipse Hooded Jacket is an ideal low-bulk insulation layer for everything from Spring ski tours to long valley climbs. A stretchy grown-on hood fits under or over a helmet and a single chest pocket keeps a phone secure.
The Mountain Equipment Eclipse Hooded Jacket is made from a lightweight fleece fabric with an even lighter fabric under the arm pits, both with an internal brushed grid backer that has excellent wicking capabilities and a smooth outer. The grid backer feels soft against your skin so would be comfortable to wear as a baselayer or a mid layer.
The jacket features a full length zip, a small chest pocket and a snug fitted hood that can stretch over a helmet. The coverstsitched seams provide next to skin comfort, avoiding chafing and improving durability.
Unlike the hood-less Eclipse Zip Tee, this jacket also features thumb holes to enhance the fit.
