Warm, durable, midweight Polartec® Power Stretch Hardface® hooded fleece jacket that functions as a midlayer or a standalone piece.
Built for alpine versatility, the Fortrez Hoody is an alpine essential. The hoody takes full advantage of Polartec® Power Stretch with Hardface® Technology. The fabric is an exceptionally warm fleece with superior abrasion resistant properties, a smooth face that sheds moisture and layers easily, and a high level of versatility that makes it well suited to mixed alpine conditions.
The fit is trim and athletic. By staying close to the body, better thermal efficiency is achieved, and a more rapid transfer of moisture vapour is facilitated. The fit also allows easy layering as conditions change. The hood is streamlined with the stretch in the fabric, allowing it to layer under a helmet or StormHood™. A Phasic™ AR panel is integrated into the hood to be used as a neck gaiter or balaclava.
Arc'teryx knows that ergonomic freedom is essential. Leveraging articulated patterning, underarm gussets and stretch materials, the Fortrez moves with the body. The longer cut and drop back hem stay put under a harness or hip belt. Flatlock construction minimizes seam irritation. The two hand pockets are streamlined, and a small pocket on the sleeve is easily accessible.
