One woman's midlayer is another woman's outerwear. The Arc'teryx Women's Maeven Fleece Hooded Jacket is just that: for the alpine adventurist, this sleek fleece hoodie slips under hardshells and down jackets when you're facing arctic air, and urban explorers grab this low profile jacket to wear as a top layer when sliding amongst the shadows and ducking in and out of buildings in search of the ultimate croissant. The streamlined hood stays close to your head without squeezing your brains, and has enough room to accommodate the lovely new toque your great aunt Mathilda just made. Four way stretch fabric lets you reach for the stars without ripping your coat. Polartec Hardface technology give this hoodie a toughness most mafia types want. Not only does the jacket resist water, twig picks, and abrasions, the face stays smooth so you can layer without issue. Elastic binding at the cuffs and hem prevent you from being a sail in the wind and cold air from sneaking in where it doesn't belong. Large hand pockets hold essentials, whether you're in town or hot on the trail of the Yeti.
