I have been wearing this hoody since january. I don't stock this jacket but prefer you buy it directly from my mates at Jagged Edge in Telluride.
The Journey Hoody is the backbone of our technical clothing. Lightweight, warm and versatile, we always keep this jacket close by; as a technical layer while in the mountains or as a favorite sweatshirt around town. The Journey Hoody works alone as outerwear and slides easily into any layering system, adding a surprising amount of warmth. The Journey Hoody is carried in the bottoms of our packs in the summer, and worn pretty much all day, either skiing or working in the shop, during the long Telluride winter.
The Jagged Edge Journey Hoodies are made from scratch here in Colorado using 100% American materials.
The fabric is the difference; we use Polartec Wind Pro - 90% polyester / 10% spandex @ 298 gsm with a durable water repellant finish. Wind Pro is a modern performance fabric that has a firm, slightly wind resistant face on one side, a short, warm fleece velour on the other, and it has a generous four-way stretch for an action fit. As a bonus, the pockets are made from Polartec Power Dry; an advanced double knit fabric that moves moisture without chemistry and is much lighter, dryer and more functional than the cheap brushed tricot most companies use. The Wind Pro Journey Hoody has the technical chomps to perform in the high country and is easily worn during our daily adventures. We all live in this garment.
Men's Medium: 504 grams / 17.5 ounces
