Take trail conditions head on.
If you've ever been hiking high in the mountains, you know exactly what makes this hoodie prime. One second you are burning up at the trailhead, and the next you're up a few hundred feet and it's snowing on you. The Mountain Hardwear Falcon Hooded Fleece Pullover is build to withstand the extreme elements, so the second it starts raining, snowing, or getting windy all around you, the Falcon will protect you, keeping you dry and warm.

Being the most expensive top in MH current line, I suppose like a Falcons flight I had high expectations. I returned it mostly due to poor fit and high price. To me the fit didn't make sense. As part technical, part regular I couldn't think of a single activity where this would excel over other less expensive layers I already have in my kit. It might have worked for me as a casual piece but not at this price point.
PROS: extremely light, zip hem, protected collar, grid fleece, desirable colors
CONS: short sleeves, poor fit(tight arms, somewhat baggy body), lacks warmth vs other similar light weight grid fleeces I already own, no thumb holes, kangaroo pocket adds weight and bulk, expensive
great base/mid layer

So if this isn't Polartec Power Grid fleece it's something very, very similar. The fit is close and technical enough with a looser-fitting scuba hood - not a balaclava style, it hangs almost like a "normal" hoody, with some comfortable, not-too-tight elastic around the opening. It performs exceptionally well, just as you would expect of a Power-Grid mid layer. I like the fact that it's not too tight, and even has a zip-through hem on the right side which makes it really easy to take off with one hand if you need to drop a layer fast, but with the comfort and performance of a pullover. I'm loving Mountain Hardwear lately - some of their new gear seems outstanding, and this is one of those pieces i wear almost every day. Just a heads-up on fit: It says Regular, and i would say it's a regular technical fit. Not compressive or anything, but definitely not a relaxed-fit. Enjoy :-)
