An active-fit insulated pullover that packs into its own chest pocket when you're not wearing it.
Jackets that take up three quarters of your backpack space irritate you worse than an old razor irritates your face. The Mountain Hardwear Men's Compressor Insulated Pullover Jacket is a lightweight, warm pullover that stows in its own chest pocket so you can bring a warm jacket along without sacrificing most of your pack space in the process.
The lightweight and durable 20D polyester ripstop shell won't become a run-infested mess of random little threads if you happen to get caught in the briar patch. The synthetic insulation, Thermic Micro, consists of short synthetic fibers, typically less than 2 inches long. Body heat gets trapped by air pockets between the fibers, providing you warmth. Large horizontal baffles help keep the insulation in place, avoiding the formation of cold spots over the life of the jacket. In addition to being light, Thermic Micro compresses readily and tightly due to the short fiber constitution. Thus, you can squish the entire Compressor into it's own chest pocket without working up a sweat.
Not only does this pullover squish into a sweet little package, it doesn't add any bulk to your frame due to the athletic fit. Go ahead and throw your favorite climbing shell over this pullover when you're heading out to scale icicles for full-day warmth without feeling like your Mr. Marshmallow 2014.
