Whether you're in the Alps or the Himalayas, battling frigid temperatures during stop-and-go activity can be as challenging as the terrain.

An innovative open-stitch mesh construction between the 1.5" fleece baffles effectively traps body heat and improves the overall warmth-to-weight ratio. Smooth, four-way stretch fleece panels are placed down the sides to maximize mobility on the mountain.
