Mountain Equipment's Womens Hispar Jacket is a soft and luxurious feeling fleece with an impressive warmth to weight ratio.
Mountain Equipment says:
A very warm yet incredibly packable hi-loft fleece for cold weather mountaineering, ski-touring, and polar expeditions.
Proven on some of the greatest expeditions of the modern age and made from POLARTEC® Thermal Pro® Hi Loft fleece, the Hispar is about as warm for its weight and bulk as it is possible for fleece to be. On top of that its ultra-breathable and fast drying nature make this a perfect cold weather midlayer.
Mountain Equipment's Womens Hispar Jacket is in a word warm, in 2 words its warm and soft, in 3 words its warm, soft and luxurious.
The Hispar jacket is a fantastic fleece you'll never want to take off. Its light enough to take on trekking trips and be a great mid layer for cold conditions or as an insulating layer for cooler nights during the summer. Alternatively just wear it at home at winter to save putting the heating on!
Features are limited to 2 hand warmer pockets the jacket is all about the soft hi loft Polartec Thermal Pro fabric making it a pleasure to wear.
