Versatile layering piece made famous by its warmth and comfort, good enough for any adventure but suitable for casual wear as well.
Urban styling meets technical prowess in the Upslope Hoody. Made of our R1® fleece that’s a blend of 93% polyester (41% recycled) and 7% spandex, this versatile hooded jacket provides excellent stretch, warmth, and durability in a variety of temperatures.
The days start to shorten, but sunny fall afternoons still give you plenty of time to top out on a few boulder problems in the Squamish woods. Made from our high-performing R1® fleece, the Upslope Hoody is a versatile, finely styled technical piece that keeps you snug on the evening hike back to town. Worn as an outer layer or as a midlayer under a jacket, the 93% polyester (41% recycled) and 7% spandex blend breathes well, wicks away moisture and provides excellent comfort, warmth and stretch. With a slim fit and urban-inspired lines, the Upslope features a comfortable hood with adjustable drawcord, kangaroo-style handwarmer pockets and ribbed cuffs and hem. Climbing-rope-inspired cord on hood and center-front zipper. Hip length.
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.
