A technical mid layer designed to insulate and breathe during cold, high-output days up in the mountains, out on the slopes or on the trails, the updated Descender Vest provides essential core warmth without inhibiting range of motion. The Descender features our 240gm textured RealFLEECE® fabric with corespun fibers—nylon threads wrapped in merino wool for increased durability and strength that retains next-to-skin softness. The Descender Vest is quick-drying and the perfect choice for technical layering. It features a high-loft brushed back with heat-trapping channels to help regulate your temperature during technical high-exertion pursuits like skiing, climbing or running in cold conditions. Lighter-weight side panels help manage moisture and dump excess heat when you’re moving fast, and the zippered chest pocket with media cord port keeps your music flowing or stashes small essentials.
