- Mountain Gear refers to the men's version
The North Face Men's Defroster Fleece Hooded Jacket works great as an outer layer in mild conditions and a mid-layer in worse weather. Its FlashDry technology keeps you dry when you work up a sweat on your alpine ascent. It doesn't just wick moisture, it pushes perspiration out of the jacket so it dries faster than most fleece jackets. The Pontetorto Tecnostretch fabric helps the jacket pack small when space is an issue, and it resists the toughest abrasions against rock. An active fit keeps the Defroster close to the body without restricting your movement up the mountain. Its scuba-style hood fits snugly around your head to keep you comfortable even when you wear a helmet. A no-rise hem is slightly longer in the back to cover your body completely when you reach above your head. Thumbloops ensure the sleeves stay in place while you stretch and pull your way up a cliff. And two pockets are there to warm your hands even if you have a harness or a pack on.
