Model: Eclipse Hooded Zip Tee


Specs

Weight

11oz.

This is the lovechild of your favorite tech hoodie and balaclava. The scuba hood provides complete face coverage when fully deployed, or slide the top down and wear it like a neck gaiter. But, unlike some balaclavas, it won’t get twisted around or gap at the neck. Starting to overheat? Open the massive, 21-inch chest zip. “This is my go-to piece for chilly-day summits,” says our tester. “It’s perfect on its own, plus the slim fit and four-way stretch make it easy to layer under my jacket on cold mornings.” Bonus: The offset zipper keeps you from eating metal when the hood is fully cinched up. $180; 11.4 oz.; men’s S-XXL, women’s XS-XL; mountain-equipment.com
