Sometimes there's nothing wrong with more of a good thing. We took the technology of our revolutionary Micro Puff Hoody and expanded upon it to create the Macro Puff Hoody, an even warmer answer to biting cold. Its ultralight recycled nylon ripstop shell with DWR (durable water repellent) finish stands guard against outside elements. The alpine helmetcompatible hood adjusts with a single pull for cocoon-like warmth without messing with your peripheral vision. Inside, the hoody features 135-g synthetic, down-stuff like PlumaFill insulation in the body and 90-g PlumaFill in the sleeves and sides (compared to 65-g overall for the Micro Puff) for water-resistant warmth without the extra weight. PlumaFill replicates the structure of down but offers the warm-when-wet benefit of synthetic. We quilt the insulation with a unique, minimal-stitch construction to stabilize it and maximize loft. The center-front zipper's storm flap seals out drafts, and a soft zipper garage at the chin saves your skin. Plenty of pockets where you need them, both in and out, and the whole toasty package self-stuffs down into front pocket. Fair Trade Certified sewn.
