In mountains big and small, Patagonia's TechFace Hoody maintains fleece-like comfort along with extended protection. The stretchy, lightweight double-weave fabric (partially recycled polyester, with spandex) offers significantly more wind resistance and durability than the traditional R1®, with smoother layering, while an articulated pattern allows full mobility. An under-the-helmet hood with laminated visor provides low-profile coverage and visibility through passing squalls. Detailing includes a pair of high, zippered handwarmer pockets (with venting mesh), an internal zippered chest pocket and Patagonia's sleek, easy push-up stretch-knit Variable Conditions Cuffs. The adjustable hem snugs via cords routed through the pockets, and the DWR (durable water repellent) finish sheds excess moisture. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.
