It's always exciting when a baby monkey is born, and the folks at Mountain Hardwear are celebrating a new member of the monkey family. Pass out cigars, and welcome the Women's Monkey Woman 200 Fleece Jacket to the Monkey jacket family. Made with lighter weight 200g hi loft fleece, this monkey is all business when it comes to thermal efficiency without weight and bulk. If you need a streamlined mid weight layer on your hut to hut ski tour, or a sleek stand alone layer for cool weather cragging, you'll be glad the Monkey 200 was born and now lives in your closet. The Monkey 200 jacket is made from Monkey Phur Lite, a hi loft fleece lacking the beefiness of other 200g fleece fabrics. She weighs less than her older sister, the Monkey Woman jacket, and sports a trimmer outline, too. A polished profile means easier layering for you, whether you're slipping on a hardshell for waterproof protection or creating an ultra warm shelter against below zero windchills with your windproof down parka. You'll appreciate the Monkey 200's slimness when you're hiking with a dayback or traveling by bus to remote Tibetan towns. Strategically zoned fabrics maximize breathability and stretch so you don't overheat or rip the seams while reaching for a hold. Stretch cuffs and hem contribute to the jacket's streamlined approach, as well as seal in warmth. Two hand warmer pockets zip so you can safely store your keys while turning cartwheels.
