Just keep it on! - the Arcteryx Proton AR Hoody synthetic jacket was developed as a light, flexible weather protection and insulation layer, which is so breathable that you can simply keep it on from the start of the day in the chilly morning air, through the sweat-inducing ascent up to the sunny chalet.
It replaces both fleece- und Softshell jackets in one! This is made possible by the combination of an especially vapour permeable, windproof outer fabric and a full-length synthetic lining. The outer fabric is hydrophobic, wear resistant and simultaneously very flexible and somewhat elastic. The lofty Coreloft insulation with no quilting takes climate management and wearer comfort to a new level.
The hood of the jacket has slightly thinner lining and can be used with or without a helmet. So when its not too wet or cold, the jacket is also good for wearing as a hardshell, the seams are flat edged and the cut is kept slim.
With a soft inner lining the jacket is also comfortable for wearing over a T-shirt! In the covered hand pockets there is a practical fleece lining, that not only warms the hands, but also protects electronic devices. The contrasting breast pockets look stylish and are also easy to use (even when youre wearing a backpack).
But if the jacket gets too warm, it can be quickly and easily packed away very small and stowed in a backpack.
With the Proton AR Hoody by Arcteryx you can be up and away in no time!
