Whether you're hiking, skiing, snowshoeing or nordic skiing, the women's REI Midweight Polartec(R) Power Dry(R) Zip-T in extended sizes can be worn alone or used as a performance base layer. Polartec Power Dry utilizes 2 different yarns on either side of the fabric to enhance comfort: interior yarn wicks moisture, and exterior yarn dries quickly. The combination of the 2 yarns helps keep you dry during highly aerobic activities because it moves moisture away from skin faster than single-component fabrics such as cotton. Center front zipper allows ventilation control, and wind guard with chin wrap increases comfort against skin. Flatseam construction reduces chafing, and seams are designed to work with pack straps at shoulders. Underarm and side gussets promote freedom of motion. Next-to-skin fit hugs the body, maintaining skin contact to boost fabric performance. Additional length helps garment stay tucked in, and smooth texture of outer surface makes it easy to slide on outer layers. Fabric offers UPF rating of 30 to protect against harmful UV light.
Historic Range: $21.93
