Regardless of whether you're in the city or in the mountains, the Mountain Hardwear Thermist Coat will provide optimal warmth and ward off the chill! The extremely warm and breathable insulation is distributed throughout the seamless chambers, not allowing the cold seep through. The insulation still does it job when wet, too, and dries very quickly. The abrasion-resistant, elastic outer material is extremely durable and definitely won't restrict your mobility. In the several outside and inside pockets of the Thermist Coat, you'll find room for sunglasses, and energy bar, cards or your ski pass. The hood can be removed, if desired. You don't have to make any sacrifices with the Mountain Hardwear Thermist Coat! It's warm, durable and looks great!
