The Power Grid Hoody is a technical, lightweight Polartec Power Grid fleece built for performance. Offering two different weights of Power Grid, body mapped and tuned for ultimate performance.
Strategically body mapped and tuned for ultimate performance, the Power Grid Hoody is a high wicking, technical fleece designed for active use.
Created with a fully body mapped design the Power Grid Hoody uses two different weights of Polartec® Power Grid® zoned to reduce weight and bulk while retaining warmth and breathability. Capillary action moves moisture away from the skin, so you stay dry and comfortable even when you're working hard, while an anti-odour treatment ensures freshness over multi-day use.
Comfortable next to the skin, the Power Grid Hoody features a reduced number of seams, which are low profile to prevent chafing, as well as harness-compatible hand pockets. Thumb loops seal out the cold, as does an anatomical scuba hood with micro stretch bound opening that can be used as a buff. In a longer length slim fit, the extended hem can be tucked into pants.

Rab's Power Grid Hoody is constructed from two different weights of Power Grid fabric which has raised channels on the inside designed to trap air, making it warmer than you'd expect from it's weight. Highly breathable though warmth is compromised in windy conditions so it will need to then be backed up by a windproof layer.
Power Grid is lighter than most fleece fabrics, providing a better warmth to weight ratio and moisture management. Using lighter pannelled Power Grid in zoned areas helps increase is breathability while also reducing unwanted bulk. It's also less likely to pill compared to your average fleece.
Overall the Power Grid Hoody is lightweight, warm and highly wicking, making it ideal for wearing as a baselayer in very cold conditions or as a very light mid layer, offering enhanced performance for long mountain days.
