The Mountain Equipment Pivot Hooded Jacket is a technical fleece with excellent features utilising an innovative wool-blend fabric from Pontetorto.
Mountain Equipment says:
A lightweight yet warm wool/fleece hybrid jacket that excels whether worn alone or as a midlayer.
Made for those on the go. This technical midlayer is made from Pontetorto Tecnowool and combines the properties of both natural wool and fleece to create a warm, highly breathable, durable and fast drying layer. It's low profile hood seal out the elements in more demanding conditions.
Mountain Equipment's Pivot Hooded Jacket's best feature is the fabric, the wool blend fleece is really soft on your skin and will be especially favoured by those of us who appreciate more natural fibres.
You could use the Pivot as a very cold weather baselayer, the fabric wicks really well and wool has natural anti-bacterial properties keeping the stink at bay.
