Glen Coe in the depths of winter is no place to go ill equipped, but then nor is your daily commute if the snow's sticking to the tarmac. With an Arcteryx Mens Thorium SV Down Hoody at your disposal, you won't be the one getting cold!
Designed to 'stand alone' rather than as a mid layer, in cold dry conditions. The Thorium SV (Severe Weather) distinguishes itself from its Thorium AR cousin, by incorporating box wall construction, the most effective form of down garment structuring. This gives it a fuller and smoother outward appearance, and maximises its generous 750 European grey goose down fill. The soft but abrasive resistant shell with DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish keeps light moisture away without any reduction in breathability. The Arcteryx Mens Thorium SV Down Hoody is an extremely light and compressable jacket, so you'll always be able to find room for it in your rucksack. Which is good, because once you've tried it, you won't ever want to leave it at home.
Arcteryx's research lab have carefully studied the areas that are most prone to moisture and placed their remarkable Coreloft synthetic insulation (warm, even when wet) accordingly. You'll find it under the arms, and in the cuffs and hood.
Very clever tailoring makes the StormHood both low profile and helmet compatible. It is also fully adjustable resulting in a close fit giving you a unrestricted panoramic view.
The full length front zip uses the newly developed No Slip Zip technology - the wind won't ever whip this jacket open!
With an athletic fit, it's close, but still allows for layering underneath, whilst ergonomically designed sleeves and under arm gussets make for restriction free full stretches when you're swinging your ice axe.
Four pockets provide ample space. Two hand pockets with zips, which in common with the main zip are corded, making it so much easier to operate them with cold or thickly gloved hands. There's an inside 'dump' pocket for general bits and pieces or the water bottle you don't want freezing up. A zipped internal chest pocket for the things you really can't afford to lose. An adjustable hem drawcord and elastic cuffs are the finishing details of this magnificent jacket.
