Fortis Hoody a staple
I love it, I'm wearing it on every run
It’s great just runs large so keep that in mind! It’s a full zip now too instead of 1/2 in previous years
Can’t take it off
I’m really pleased with the layer. It is cut loose: I’m a 40 inch chest, 34 inch arm; I bough the medium and it is roomy in the waist and the sleeves are long. I really like the feel of the piece — a tight weave.
Minimal Yet Versatile
Not super warm, but absolutely perfect for mountain/cold weather activity's. The hood fits under a helmet and while you may miss having hand pockets wearing it around town you are glad they are absent the minute you put a harness or waist belt on. I also found that both the sleeve and hem length are actually long enough to keep you covered and not restrict movement even when you are fully stretched out.
Strange cut and durable fabric
Primarily an alpine climber and endurance athlete. I find this layer confusing. The cut is loose, much like an outer layer with space a thin layer or two. The material is comfortable enough to be directly against the skin. The cut of the neck / hood / zipper is awkward and not entirely comfortable. At 5'8" and 160lbs I find the medium to be too large to comfortably fit beneath a shell... the waist is loose and long and frequently peaks beneath a shell layer. The sleeves are also long and the wrists are not fitted so they feel cumbersome unless pushed back. The breathability is phenomenal and the durability is exceptional. I would love to see this material used in a more trim and athletic cut so this layer could be used as an "active" layer that could quickly disappear beneath a shell or warmth layer when finished dealing with a pitch or weather deteriorates... essentially as a workhorse, good weather, breathable, outer layer for high levels of activity.
