The Filament Pull-On is a super lightweight, high wicking, technical fitting fleece designed for active mountain use.
Embrace extreme mountain sport with comfort and confidence. At just 213g, our Women’s Filament Pull-On is a lightweight stretch fleece midlayer that fully warrants its place on any high-energy mountain trip.
The ultra-dry insulation of our Women’s Filament Pull-On is designed to help you take control of your mountain adventures. Built from recycled Thermic™ stripe-patterned polyester fleece with integrated elastane, it provides complete freedom to move, as well as the capacity to shift moisture fast between your base layer and your outer shell. The deep-venting half-length front zip enables you to manage the warmth as the activity level changes and, whether trekking, climbing or skiing, the rest of the features are equally practical. They include a secure YKK® zipped chest pocket, smooth low-friction flatlock seams, unobtrusive thumb loops and an elevated collar with soft-touch chin guard.
Whether used as a warmth boost during mild-weather rest periods or as a layering piece during intense midwinter ascents, the new Women’s Filament Hoody is a highly effective all-mountain midlayer.
Rab's Womens Filament Pull-On uses a lightweight, breathable, ribbed fleece fabric that is designed to trap more warm air than regular fleece, making this type of fabrics perform better than heavier, traditional fleece designs. It's also designed to wick sweat more effectively than standard fleece fabrics, which it does manage even when you're heating up on ascents or higher intensity sessions.
This fleece initially feels more of a mid-layer but it also works really well as a next-to-skin base layer for when your long-sleeve tees are not providing enough warmth in cold conditions. Admittedly it has seen more use as a spring/summer midlayer when trekking in milder conditions. The streamlined Pull-On design makes it ideal for layering while the half length zip provides a great vent for regulating your temperature.
