Sometimes there’s nothing wrong with more of a good thing. We took the technology and successes of our revolutionary Micro Puff Hoody and expanded upon them to create the Macro Puff™ Hoody, an even warmer answer to biting cold. Its ultralight recycled nylon ripstop shell with DWR (durable water repellent) finish stands guard against outside elements. The alpine helmet–compatible hood adjusts with a single pull for cocoon-like warmth without messing with your peripheral vision. Inside, the Hoody features 135-g synthetic, down-stuff like PlumaFill insulation in the body and 90-g PlumaFill in the sleeves and sides (compared to 65-g overall for the Micro Puff), wrapping you in deep, water-resistant warmth without weighing you down. PlumaFill replicates the structure of down for great loft but offers the warm-when-wet benefit of synthetic. We quilt the insulation with a unique, minimal-stitch construction to stabilize it and maximize loft. The two-way center-front zipper’s storm flap seals out drafts, and a soft zipper garage at the chin saves your skin. Plenty of pockets sit where you need them, in and out, and the whole toasty package stuffs down small into a separate stuffsack.
