Technical climbs are the ski alpinist’s path to fresh powder and steep couloirs. The Procline Hybrid Hoody delivers thermal performance with climate control for the climb. Two fabrics combine using Arc’teryx Hybrid Mapping technology. A Tyono™ nylon shell is bonded to a light, moisture wicking microgrid Polartec® fleece. The Tyono™ shell is a 20 denier nylon that is light, compressible and deceptively durable. It has a DWR treatment to shed light moisture, and blocks wind while still providing enough air permeability to prevent overheating. The Polartec® Classic 100 micro velour small grid fleece lines the body and top of the hood to provide efficient, lightweight warmth and moisture transport. Under the arms and down the sides, where heat release and freedom of movement are critical, Polartec® Power Stretch® fleece with Hardface® Technology is used. Lightly brushed on the inside, and delivering exceptional stretch, the material’s smoother face helps with snow and abrasion resistance.INTELLIGENTLY MINIMALISTUse specific and intelligently minimalist, the Procline Hybrid Hoody is pared to only the most essential features. The hood is lightly insulated and snugs securely with a single hand adjuster for a full coverage fit that works with or without a helmet. Two low profile hand pockets stow small essentials. The unique No Slip Zip™ combines the security of a locking slider with the ease of a nonlocking quick release system. Every twelfth tooth has a bump on it. This prevents the zipper from opening inadvertently, but still allows the ability to unzip with a single hand for rapid ventilation. It’s a simple feature, long in development, that makes a difference. SPECIFICALLY for WOMENPurposeful design is an Arc’teryx commitment. When designing for women, each element is refined to specifically to meet the needs and demands of the female athlete, without compromise. Efficient women’s specific patterning and use-specfic ergonomic freedom are keys to the Procline Hybrid Hoody’s performance. Aggressive articulation is built in, a requirement particularly necessary on challenging ascents. The Arc’teryx Trim fit with e3D keeps the hoody close to the body to maximize fabric performance and provide easy layering under a hardshell, and the e3D (ergonomic 3-Dimensional) patterning utilizes extra space in key joint areas to bring an added level of use specific articulation.
