Days shorten, snow falls, ice forms - the taste of autumn yielding to winter just means a shift in activities. And since our R2® Jacket traps heat and breathes freely, and is now more technical than ever, it keeps you warm but not swampy on long approaches, ice climbs and ski tours. Our most popular Regulator® fleece jacket primarily uses refined high-loft Polartec® Thermal Pro® recycled polyester fabric, which is superlight, wicking, compressible, stretchy and soft. An R1® Polartec Power Dry® high/low grid panel runs along the underside of the arms, down the sides and across the lower-front torso, hybridizing the jacket to improve fit and mobility and extend your comfort range. The cuffs now have discreet, on-seam thumb loops; the softly lined inner collar and kissing-welt zipper garage are soft on the neck and chin; Sonic/Stitch seam construction reduces bulk on the center front zipper; offset shoulder seams stay clear of pack straps; zippers close the external pockets (one chest and two handwarmers, above harness-line), while the handwarmers’ mesh pocket bags double as internal drop-in pockets.
