Casual comfort and technical performanceUsing an integrated Japanese fabric-insulation-stitching system, the Free Padded Hood is possibly the most comfortable mid-layer we have ever created. A stretchable, breathable and lightweight padding is wrapped in a stretchable, breathable and water-resistant fabric, providing the perfect combination of technical performance and contemporary styling. Use it as a mid-layer when freeriding or as a stand-alone garment for ski-touring, spring conditions, travelling or on down days.
Why you will like it
- Warm, stretchable, breathable, water-resistant and extremely comfortable.
- Use it as a technical mid-layer or as a relaxed stand-alone garment.
- Oversized straight fit with contemporary styling.
An instant hit with our staff and team, the Free Padded Hood is incredibly comfortable and versatile. Using a newly developed Japanese technology that integrates insulation, fabric and even stitching provides a surprisingly useful combination of stretchable coziness and technical performance. The padding is made from four types of spiral-shaped fibres that are intertwined to achieve superior stretchability and volume. The outer fabric is DWR-treated for water resistance.
Use it as a highly technical mid-layer over a base-layer, under a shell, and it will keep you warm, dry and comfortable while providing unlimited freedom of movement. Or use it as a stand-alone jacket while ski-touring or hitting the resort in spring. Or just wear it all the time — when travelling, commuting or just lounging about — that’s what we do.
3D-stretchable fabric and insulation for layering comfort and unrestricted freedom of movement.
