The Mountain Hardwear Thermostatic Hooded Jacket is a light weight jacket with 60 grams of Thermal.Q Elite insulation for outstanding warmth. Perfect for wearing under a shell or as a stand alone jacket.
Mountain Hardwear says:
A mid-layer climbing jacket with exceptional warmth and great mobility.Though it’s wind- and water-resistant enough to wear as a standalone jacket, the Hooded Thermostatic's low profile means it especially excels under a more technical outer shell. With synthetic insulation that’s warm, lightweight, and compressible, and 20D nylon face fabric that resists abrasion.
||||This insulation works to mimic the structure of natural goose down using 100% waterproof, synthetic fibres. A lattice of thick, rigid fibres helps create structure and maintain loft while a multitude of thinner fibres fills in the structure. This creates a warm synthetic structure with excellent compression rebound, which will not absorb moisture. |
Jackets like this are perfect for when you just want a lightweight, warm layer to wear under a shell. You don't want a big bulky jacket, just something with a sleek design that provides a good amount of warmth and mobility for climbing, hiking or skiing.
The Thermostatic Hooded Jacket boasts 60 grams of Mountain Hardwear's Thermal.Q Elite insulation, for unbeatable warmth in a low-profile jacket. Though its 20 denier nylon face fabric is wind and water resistant enough to be used as an outer layer, its streamlined fit makes it a perfect midlayer beneath a waterproof shell.
It compresses down to a small size and can be stowed inside it's own pocket for convenient storage. The insulated hood is low profile for layering and has an elasticated edge for a snug fit.
