Cathedral Ledge, New Hampshire: Great routes, terrible weather. Then again, the rain, sleet and cold create some of the best ice in the East. For the wet and frigid, our Micro Puff hoody houses superwarm and compressible 100-g PrimaLoft® Sport insulation, which allows for a clean front devoid of cold spots. It's sandwiched between the durable, windproof 100% recycled polyester shell and lining, both of which are treated with a Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish. The single-pull, 2-way-adjustable hood fits snugly over a helmet, and the main zipper is backed by a wind flap and coated with a Deluge DWR. Pockets: two zippered handwarmers and one interior zippered. With articulated elbows, gasket cuffs, a drawcord hem and a stuffsack.

In 1993, we adopted fleece into our product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. We were the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.
Today, we’re able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. We now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including our own) into polyester fibers to produce many of our clothes.
Using recycled polyester lessens our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.
DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.
