The Power Stretch Pro Jacket is a mid-weight Polartec fleece hoody designed to be worn as either a standalone piece or as part of a layering system in cold environments.
Polartec Powerstretch Pro is a high performance layer, with a low friction outer surface to increase abrasion and weather resistance, and the ability to retain warmth whilst remaining dry and comfortable.The soft and stretchy Powerstretch Pro is a much sought after asset in the alpine layering system and means that movement is unhindered as you make your way to the summit.
All in all this is one of our more technical fleece options that can withstand the elements as an outer layer or even be worn directly next to the skin if you are really looking to optimise your layering system.
The Rab Power Stretch Pro Jacket is a full zip hooded fleece jacket, ideal for active use as a top layer or mid layer in cool conditions. It's made from Polartec Power Stretch Pro which is a body hugging 4-way stretch breathable fabric with a Nylon face for increased wind and abrasion resistance. The inside feels incredibly soft against your skin so is incredibly comfortable when worn with a baselayer.
In terms of features it has a close fit under helmet hood, 2 zip hand pockets and thumb loops. It's a little more pricey than most ordinary fleece hoodys but that is due to the innovitive fabrics that's more resistant to pilling and stretching. So over all it will last longer.
