Outdoor Research Vashon Hybrid Full-Zip

Manufacturer's Description

Fleece has long been celebrated as the warmer, more durable imitation of nature's temperature-regulating wool. So we asked: Why choose between the two when you can have the best of both fabrics - and then some? This season, we're celebrating this athlete, adventurer, armchair-mountaineer favorite fabric with the all new Vashon Fleece Collection. Breathable and wicking, each Vashon piece has the technical chops to manage both internal and external moisture, with the extra warmth and comfort delivered by a perfectly balanced blend of fleece and wool.

Plus, we've infused a touch of polyester and nylon for quick drying capabilities. A flat seam construction prevents chafing while an elastic drawcord hem traps in heat, and zip pockets store valuables when you need your hands free and ready for the next obstacle.The Vashon Hybrid Full Zip is a masterpiece in its own, combining the trustworthy performance of fleece and insulating superpowers of VerticalX technology, the high-loft insulation with a superior warmth-to-weight ratio.

Rest assured, when winter weather comes rolling in, these pieces are the first thing you'll throw on underneath a hard shell to bear the brunt of whatever the forecast throws your way.
