With Montane's Barrier Pull-on you get the best of both worlds - a highly breathable heavyweight baselayer with added windproof protection in an area that doesn't compromise that breathability.
This technical pull-on combines the remarkable POLARTEC Power Grid fabric with Wind Barrier Dynamic front overlay panels to provide lightweight warmth and wind resistance in key areas when climbing or wearing a pack.
Its quick dry time and superb wicking make it ideal for fast paced, high sweat activities where the need to regulate your body temperature is key.
Montane's Barrier Micro Pull-On is constructed mainly from Polartec Power Grid - that's a fairly open weave fabric with a raised patterned fleece backer - the combination of these features make a garment that's highly breathable yet offers a decent bit of insulation. Its a common fabric that's very popular for dynamic activities where breathability is really important.
The Barrier Pull-on from Montane adds a windproof panel to the chest area of the Power Grid, which makes a big difference to the garment when there's a cold wind blowing. You get the best of both worlds here - a highly breathable heavyweight baselayer with added windproof protection in an area that doesn't compromise that breathability.
Hem and cuffs are simply finished with a sewn seam and there's a micro fleece panel around the neckline. Its a well finished garment.
