The Filament Hoody super lightweight, high wicking, technical fitting fleece designed for active mountain use.
If you spend your life in a helmet and harness, our Women’s Filament Hoody is for you. From arduous backcountry ski tours to extreme alpine ascents, it’s a supremely versatile mountain midlayer.
Our Women’s Filament Hoody is built for high-output pursuits in cold winter conditions. It uses a lightweight, fast-wicking Thermic™ recycled fleece with a 7% elastane content for plenty of stretch on difficult ascents. As part of our highly technical Ascent range, it also features an athletic, low-bulk cut, as well as smooth flatlock seams for the easiest possible layering. Despite a weight of just 274g, the stripe-patterned fabric is extremely warm and durable, providing plenty of insulation, while helping transfer sweat between layers and away from the body. Additional mountain-ready features include a full-length YKK® front zip, a zipped chest pocket, an under-helmet hood and a set of unobtrusive thumb loops to keep your hands warm and your sleeves in place.
With its easy-breathing fabric, lightweight construction and advanced feature set, the Women’s Filament Hoody is tailor-made for the steep, hostile parts of the world.

Rab's Womens Filament Hoody uses a lightweight, breathable, ribbed fleece fabric that is designed to trap more warm air than regular fleece, making this type of fabrics perform better than heavier, traditional fleece designs. It's also designed to wick sweat more effectively than standard fleece fabrics, which it does manage even when you're heating up on ascents or higher intensity sessions.
This fleece initially feels more of a mid-layer but it also works really well as a next-to-skin base layer for when your long-sleeve tees are not providing enough warmth in cold conditions. Admittedly it has seen more use as a spring/summer midlayer when trekking in milder conditions. The simple hooded design allows you to add a little more coverage and warmth while the full length zip makes temperature regulation much easier.
