The R2® Jacket’s highly refined construction and fabric traps heat and breathes freely, with the main body relying on high-loft Polartec® Thermal Pro® recycled polyester fabric, which is superlight, wicking, compressible, stretchy and soft. An R1® Polartec Power Dry® high / low grid panel runs along the underside of the arms, down the sides and across the lower-front torso, hybridizing the jacket to improve fit and mobility and extend your comfort range. The cuffs have discreet, on-seam thumb loops; the softly lined inner collar and kissing-welt zipper garage are soft on the neck and chin; Sonic/Stitch seam construction reduces bulk on the center-front zipper; offset shoulder seams stay clear of pack straps; zippers close the external pockets (one chest and two handwarmers, above harness-line), while the handwarmers’ mesh pocket bags double as internal drop-in pockets.
