Made for mobility in the mountains.
The Arc'teryx Women's Konseal Hooded Fleece Jacket is a versatile option for alpine adventures and rock or ice climbing. Wear it as a standalone layer during cool days at the crag, or layer it under a shell when you venture above tree line.
Polartec Power Dry fleece is stretchy and breathable for comfort during active use, and it features Hardface technology for increased abrasion resistance when you're brushing up against rough granite walls. Hardface tech also helps it move easily underneath other layers. The DWR coating wards off light rain and snow. No-Lift underarm gussets prevent the jacket from riding up when reaching for tough holds. The integrated neck gaiter works with the hood to create a built-in balaclava when a storm starts moving in.

I love thumbholes. I was so excited to get a climbing fleece with thumbholes! Unfortunately, the thumbholes are not an extension of the sleeves, but just added to the sleeves so when worn they are really tight on the flesh between your thumb and first finger and the sleeves are definitely too short.
Aside from the thumbholes, I LOVE this fleece. The balaclava is perfect for skiing and the face fabric sheds a surprising amount of moisture. It layers very easily under a shell and I've also even layered it under a synthetic midlayer on extra cold belays. Would 100% give it a 5 star rating if the thumbholes were more comfortable.
Great fitting, warm fleece!
Arc'teryx knows how things are supposed to fit when you're moving. This fleece doesn't ride weird or pull funny when you are active in it. It provides great warmth, and the sleeves are long enough to tuck your hands into if the weather is a little chillier than anticipated.
