A good allrounder the inside feels really soft and warm to the touch the outside feels tough thats the Hardface technology and wind proof. So this piece will keep you warm even on an exposed ridge when the windy is being whipped up and funnelled through gullies.
Not as light as a down filled or a Primaloft mid-layer but the Shadow Hoodie adds `windproof` to the equation which enables it to do its job in harsher conditions.
The Shadow Hoodie is one of those jackets that will stand a great deal of abuse but you`ll be reachig for its comfort time after time. The two pockets have mesh interior.
Difficult to justify the weight on a backpacking trip but excellent for other occasions.
