On a 21-day canoe trip down the Nahanni River, every piece of gear has to pull its weight every day. The R2 Jacket is an easy choice. For northern latitudes, frigid starts and cold weather, the highly refined construction and fabric of this Regulator fleece traps heat and breathes freely to keep you warm and comfortable across a wide range of conditions. The main body relies on high-loft Polartec Thermal Pro recycled polyester fabric, which is superlight, wicking, compressible, stretchy and soft. R1 Polartec Power Grid high/low grid panels wrap each cuff, and run along the underside of the arms and down the sides to improve fit, mobility and comfort range. The cuff's spiral-seam construction won't constrict your forearms when you push up the sleeves; the softly lined inner collar and kissing-welt zipper garage go easy on the neck and chin; sonic/stitch seam construction on all zippers reduces bulk; offset shoulder seams stay clear of pack straps; zippers close the external pockets (one chest and two handwarmers, above harness line), while the handwarmers' pocket bags double as stealthy internal mesh drop-in pockets.* Exceptionally warm, directionally knit Polartec Thermal Pro fabric is breathable, compressible, wicks moisture and dries quickly * Side panels, sleeves and cuffs feature R1 Polartec Power Grid for improved fit and breathability * Technical fit, underarm gussets and raglan sleeves for increased mobility and comfort under outerwear and packs * All zippers have Sonic/Stitch seam construction to reduce bulk and improve suppleness; soft kissing-welt zipper garage at chin for next-to-skin comfort * Spiral-seam construction at cuff allows sleeves to push up easily without constricting forearms * One left-chest pocket and two high handwarmer pockets have slim zip installs, clean-finished zipper garages, and are harness- and pack-compatible; two interior drop-in mesh pockets * Body: 6.1-oz Polartec Thermal Pro 97% polyester (63% recycled)/3% spandex * Side panels and cuffs: 6.3-oz Polartec Power Grid 93% recycled polyester/7% spandex * Fabric is bluesign approved * Weight: 405 g (14.3 oz)
