October 02, 2017

We can’t tell who loves our Ferrosi collection more: Climbers, weekend warriors, or our own employees. It’s one of the best-selling soft shell apparel collections in the outdoor industry for a few good reasons: Sharp design lines, functional features, and a durable construction with stretch for all-the-time performance from sea level to summit. Winter enthusiasts shared the same love for Ferrosi, but they had to bulk and bundle up for freezing temps. So we decided to inject this award-winner with insulated power to take on those bitter cold days.

Meet our brand new Winter Ferrosi Hoody: The durable Ferrosi you know and love, now quilted and packed with Thermore® insulation. This four-season style is great for dynamic movements that involve plenty of stretch and reach, like climbing, skiing, and snowshoeing. Forget about layering up on those ski descents – the Winter Ferrosi has the breathability to tackle the uphill and warmth to take on the downhill in one compact package.

The Winter Ferrosi Hoody packs a one-two-three punch with a few standout features:

Ferrosi Soft Shell Fabric. Our best-selling, proprietary Ferrosi fabric packs in adventurer-favorited features that hikers, climbers, skiers, and any other outdoor enthusiast would appreciate, like:

—Water and wind resistance.

—Lightweight feel with a heavyweight performance.

—Movement-mirroring stretch for total freedom of motion.

—Breathable, air permeable fabric that dumps heat when you work up a sweat.

Thermore® Insulation. Featured in our most hardwearing alpine pieces, Thermore® take this Ferrosi up a notch with injected insulation that stands up to the demands of winter weather. Themore® is a high-tech thermal insulation designed to offer soft, lightweight warmth, maximum comfort, and long-term durability. Its low-density structure is made up mostly of trapped air – a highly efficient insulator. Thanks to patented Special Reduction technology, Thermore® offers high warmth in a reduced thickness. In fact, lab tests demonstrate that this specialized technology allows for a 50% thickness reduction while only reducing the thermal value by ten percent, allowing garments to be made in a slim profile while still maintaining an effective warmth level.

Winter Weather Durability. We’ve added in key details that can take the abuse of brutal storms, and prepare explorers for cold climates.

—Brushed tricot-lined interior provides cushioning, coziness, and an easier glide on and off over under layers.

—Stand-up collar to keep your neck warm even when the hood is down.

—Internal front stormflap adds an extra barrier of protection against wet weather.

—Elastic cuffs and elastic drawcord hem secure tight to keep inclement weather out, and trap warmth within.

The Winter Ferrosi Hoody truly gives you the feel of a mid-layer, with the performance and technical chops of an outer layer.
