Why We Like It

A favorite mid-layer amongst outdoor enthusiasts for any technical activity, the same features that make this jacket perfect for the outdoors also make it perfect for traveling. With an impressive balance of warmth and breathability, the R1 regulates body temperature so well that you'll find yourself wearing it all day and forget you have it on. The secret lie in the Polartec Power Grid material that breathes amazingly well while providing exceptional protection from wind and cold. A new feature is the Polygiene permanent odor control, allowing you to actually wear it all-day, everyday (within reason, of course) without worrying about smelling funky.
