It's ready to roll anytime you head out into the cold, wind, or snow, whether you're shoveling the driveway, going for a hike, or hitting the ski slopes. On the outside, Stormlock polyester fabric blocks wind and repels moisture so your body heat doesn't get sucked away, while lofty Polartec Alpha insulation provides lightweight warmth, good compressibility, and warmth even if gets a little soggy, a benefit that down doesn't offer. Closer to your skin, Wolfskin employed mesh Q. M. C. Quick Moisture Control, which pulls sweat and condensation away from your skin to prevent the clamminess that can turn your cozy cocoon icy in the blink of an eye. Internal cuffs and a drawstring hem keep snow and wind from sneaking up your sleeves and back, and an internal pocket provides a safe haven for your electronics or wallet when you're out in the elements.
