The new Geon Pull-On is a mid weight stretch fleece offering low bulk all round insulation for climbing, scrambling and hiking in cold conditions.
If you want flexible low-bulk winter insulation, as well as quick-boost everyday warmth, our new Geon Pull-On with Thermic™ stretch fleece is the ideal multi-application midlayer.
Our Geon Pull-On is a mountain-ready layering piece. It is built from Thermic™ stretch fleece, a hydrophobic mid-weight polyester/elastane fabric designed for dry, easy-flex insulation on active winter days in the hills. For improved comfort, it uses a rolled hem and cuff, alongside low-profile flatlock seams that slide easily over the skin, helping minimise friction points. With a brushed grid backer, the fabric is also optimised to promote the through-flow of moisture during intense physical work, while retaining body heat in cold winter conditions. Additional features include an elevated collar, a deep-venting half-length front zip and a secure YKK® zip chest pocket for a phone or GPS.
Whether you want to hike, scramble or climb, the Geon Pull-On is the perfect mid-weight layer for reliable dryness and warmth during high-energy cold-weather sport.
Rab's Geon Pull-On falls into the mid-weight category for fleece. This top provides a good amount of warmth and comfort in a nice looking package. The Thermic stretch fleece is versatile and durable so it's worth the weight over lighter alternatives. It does a good job in regulating heat more effectively than normal, traditional fleece. It allows excess heat to escape when things warm up but in colder conditions that warm air can be trapped in to keep you warm. It is also really good at wicking moisture and dries pretty quickly too so it works really well for a range of outdoor activities.
The Geon combines comfort, performance and value really well. This is a great all-rounder, from acting as an effective mid-layer in cold conditions to being a single outer layer in milder conditions this fleece works as well for hiking as it does for comfortable casual wear. This pull-on version loses the hood and cuts weight, without sacrificing the ability to vent heat with the half length zip which will appeal to many.
