Some cold mountain mornings make you wonder why you're not at home in bed, but when the day's first light hits the mountain you're ascending, you'll know you made the right decision by braving the cold and getting an early start on your objective. The La Sportiva Men's Galaxy 2. 0 Fleece Hooded Jacket will get you to that moment of enlightenment thanks to its stretch fleece fabric that insulates while providing plenty of stretch to keep you mobile during the approach. Its regular fit allows it to be comfortably worn over a baselayer, but isn't so bulky it can't be layered under a shell when a little salty weather blows in. Thumbholes help to keep the sleeve down, while flatlock seams prevent irritating stitching from rubbing you as you make your way up the mountain. The two zippered hand pockets lie flat against the body to minimize bulk whether you're wearing the Galaxy on its own or utilizing it as a mid layer.
