Our second version of the Ascent Reversible Hybrid hoody is upgraded to have a CORDURA® UltraLite 30D mini rip-stop fabrication inside and out. The main body fabric is treated with DWR and features a more durable material than its predecessor. Wear the Ascent in combination with a base layer top [L1] for cool weather as an insulating layer and then add an outer shell [L5] jacket as temperatures drop and conditions get wetter. This hybrid design provides flexibility when active, helps regulate body heat, and will withstand light variable weather conditions like light rain or mist.
Depending on where you are and what you are trying to accomplish, get 2 jackets for the price of 1... The "exterior" side has zip entry hand-warmer pockets lined with peached tricot fabric. The main body and sleeves are lightweight 30D nylon ripstop insulated with Polartec® Power Fill™ recycled polyester insulation. The underarms and side panels feature Polartec® Power Grid™ fleece to aid in thermoregulation and mobility. Slanted thumbholes help keep hands warm with or without accompanying gloves. A reversible YKK zipper ensures the garment can be worn on either side. The "interior" (reversed) side features a different color, chevron quilting, and a chest pocket, giving a separate appearance.
Inspired by super lightweight, durable fabrics used in parachutes and hot air balloons, CORDURA® UltraLite fabrics are woven with high tenacity nylon 6,6 filament yarns and offer an optimal strength-to-weight ratio. Ideal for use in technical packs, stuff sacks, and pouch accessories as well as performance apparel outerwear. The perfect choice for a highly technical garment that requires ultimate performance.
Polartec® Power Fill™ is a premium solution for sheeted insulation made from post-consumer recycled (PCR) content. This proprietary platform provides greater warmth retention in colder conditions, without added weight or bulk – ideal for a variety of activities where body heat can’t ensure proper warmth. A unique process bonds the hollow fibers, increasing durability and drape, reducing the need for scrims or other stabilizers. This gives Power Fill™ unmatched warmth and design versatility, perfect for a wide range of style and usage occasions.
Polartec® Power Grid™ is the evolution of fleece fabric engineering. A patented grid construction knit strengthens performance efficiency by increasing warmth and breathability, while also reducing fabric mass. These geometric patterns improve compressibility, wicking, and add technical style. By reinventing thermal warmth possibilities, Power Grid™ is a minimalist design that maximizes fabric performance.
