Kyanite Hooded Fleece Jacket
Great as a powder day mid-layer or on its own in a casual context, the Arc'Teryx Women's Kyanite Hooded Fleece Jacket is a durable, technical hoodie for all manner of outdoor play. The Polartec Power Stretch nylon teams well with the gusseted underarms to offer excellent range of movement for climbing and general ski-poling. But the Kyanite also makes a great hoodie for uphill touring thanks to its sweat-wicking properties and ScubaHood that zips up tight, blocks wind, and just so happens to fit quite nicely under a helmet.

The Dew Drop color is actually a very pale mint green. It's kind of hard to see in the picture but it is not a white color like the picture makes it look. It's super soft and comfy. I got this for my step-mom who is always cold. It's a great layer for active use. She uses this snowshoeing, skiing, hiking, or for casual use. She took it with her to Iceland as well where it became a staple in her wardrobe.
The picture is her testing it out in Iceland (when it wasn't raining)! It's surprisingly sturdy for as soft as it is! It has a nice stretch as well so you don't feel claustrophobic in the for-fitting fleece. Her only complaint is that she wishes it was a little longer in the torso.
