Now featuring a roll-down anti-snag Velcro tab, 2 YKK reverse zipped side pockets and lycra bound cuffs.

The Women's Strata Hoody is the updated version of the Women's Strata Hoodie. Other than just changing how you spell it's name, Rab have also updated a few of the features and subtly quilted the jacket to reduce fabric movement and improve performance. They have added lycra to the cuffs and added 2-way zips to the front hand warmer pockets along with a built in material flap to cover them. It now also features a roll-down anti-snag Velcro tab instead of the clip that it used to have for rolling away the hood.
The Women's Strata Hoody is still made using innovative Polartec Alpha insulation and Pertex Microlight fabric that is versatile, water resistant, windproof and breathable. The Strata range is very much designed as active warmth and these garments are meant to be used when moving quickly in cold conditions. The hoody works as an outer layer in cold and dry conditions but can equally be layered under a shell should conditions dictate. Ideal for mountaineering, alpine climbing, mountain walking or for any activity where warmth and breathability are paramount.
