Sometimes there’s nothing wrong with more of a good thing. We took the technology and successes of our revolutionary Micro Puff Hoody and expanded upon them to create the Macro Puff Hoody, an even warmer answer to biting cold. Its ultralight recycled nylon ripstop shell with DWR (durable water repellent) finish stands guard against outside elements. The alpine helmet-compatible hood adjusts with a single pull for cocoon-like warmth without messing with your peripheral vision. Inside, the Hoody features 135-g synthetic, down-like PlumaFill insulation in the body and 90-g PlumaFill in the sleeves and sides (compared to 65-g overall for the Micro Puff), wrapping you in deep, water-resistant warmth without weighing you down. PlumaFill replicates the structure of down for great loft but offers the warm-when-wet benefit of synthetic. We quilt the insulation with a unique, minimal-stitch construction to stabilize it and maximize loft. The two-way center-front zipper’s storm flap seals out drafts, and a soft zipper garage at the chin saves your skin. Plenty of pockets sit where you need them, in and out, and the whole toasty package stuffs down small into a separate stuffsack. Fair Trade Certified sewn.
