The Men's Solo Hoody is a solid 1-man jacket from Arc'teryx. I know what you're thinking, "Aren't most jackets 1-man jackets?" Well, yeah.... I guess I don't know why they named it the "Solo" hoody, but here's what I do know about it: it is the perfect mid-layer jacket for cold and/or wet belays or other outdoor activities. The ThermaTek Insulation retains warmth even in wet conditions while remaining lightweight and compressible so you can always find pack space for it (or, with its clip-in point, you can attach it to the outside of a pack or harness). The Solo has an athletic cut with stretch-knit cuffs and adjustable hood to ensure proper Fit, coverage and protection while allowing full, unhindered mobility.

Be prepared for those ever-changing weather conditions on El Cap with the Arc'teryx Men's Solo Hooded Insulated Jacket. Therma Tek insulation retains its warmth even when it gets wet, and the nylon shell has a DWR coating to resist wet weather as well. When the morning's damp climate changes to sunny skies, compress this jacket in its stuff sack and clip it to your harness for when the weather worsens way up on that beautiful mountain. And the StormHood slides over your helmet with ease or it cinches tightly across your head if you lead a more dangerous life without a helmet protecting your brain box. An athletic fit pulls the Solo close to your body without restricting your movement on the wall, and articulated elbows only increase your freedom of movement. The insulated wind guard seals out those blustery winds, and the stretchy cuffs are soft on your wrists while they keep in all that wonderful warmth. A drop-tail hem gives additional coverage, and the drawcord cinches down to seal out any miserable cold fronts heading your way.

The Arc'teryx Solo Hoody is perfect for cold, wet or humid weather while belaying. Waist length for coverage and athletic cut to allow layers but keep a close proximity to the core for warmth. ThermaTek insulation retains maximum warmth in really wet conditions. Outer fabric on the Solo repels moisture but does not have the protective capacity of a waterproof shell fabric. This is evenly distributed warmth in a highly compressible, very lightweight package. Good for take along and reasonable weather forecasts.Full centre front WaterTight Vislon centre has an insulated wind guard to really seal out drafts during stationary belays. Hand pockets, one internal mesh pocket and a stuff sack with clip-in point for attaching to a harness.
