A close fitting and ultra-fast drying hooded zip tee for mountain running and alpine climbing.
Mountain Equipment says:
This super-light fleece hoody moves moisture incredibly quickly to make it ideal for everything from high speed alpinism to hard mountain rock climbing and running in the hills. The fitted hood also adds extra protection and a half zip allows venting whilst working hard.
The ribbed fleece used in the Mountain Equipment's Solar Eclipse Hooded Zip Tee is designed to trap more warm air than regular fleece making these types of fabrics perform better at similar weights. It's also designed to wick sweat more effectively than standard fleece fabrics, which it does achieve. This is a great next-to-skin running layer for when your long-sleeve tees are not providing enough warmth - also ideal as a cold weather, trekking baselayer and spring/summer midlayer.
