Fleece simply doesn’t feel any better than the Monkey Man Grid II Jacket. The high-loft Monkey Phur fleece throughout the body, upper arms, and shoulder tops provides unbeatable warmth--its grid pattern reduces bulk and increases breathability. Strategically placed side-panels made from hardface stretch fleece allow for unobstructed mobility when you’re on the move.
The Monkey Man Grid II Jacket is constructed from plush Monkey Phur with a burnout grid pattern which reduces bulk and increases breathability. It provides maximum warmth to weight ratio and is perfect to wear alone or under a shell. This cosy jacket has two zippered hand warmer pockets which are positioned well so you can still get into them when wearing a harness or pack. It also has a handy chest pocket for storing maps, snacks and other goodies you want to get at fast.

Both sleeves have a thumb loop which helps to keep your hands warm and prevents the sleeves from riding up.
