The Arc'teryx Women's Fortrez Hoody is a versatile mid-layer fleece that wants you to get active. It wants to wrap you up in Polartec® Power Stretch fleece with Hardface® Technology, like a big warm jackety hug. The fit is trim with anatomical shaping, articulated elbows and underam gussets so you can run/skip/hike/bike/shuffle around with unhindered freedom of movement. The soft shell is breathable and quick-drying to prevent and eliminate moisture build-up. A super cool feature of the Fortrez Hoody is the integrated neck gaiter/balaclava that pulls down from the hood for taking a bite out of a cold wind (or keeping bugs out of your mouth on a bike ride).

Chest / Bust - Measure around your chest / bust, holding the measuring tape under your armpit.
Waist - Measure around the natural waist, which is often the narrowest part of your waist.
Hip - Measure around your hips at the widest part.
Sleeve Length - With your arms in a slightly bent postion, measure from the center of the back of your neck, along the length of your arm, to the wrist.
Inseam / Pant Length - From a standing position, measure from your crotch to your ankle.
Dress Length - Measuring the front of the garment from the neckline at shoulder to the hem edge.
Head Circumference - Measure the full circumference around the widest part of your head.
Hand Length - Measure from the tip of your middle finger to the base of the palm.
Hand Width - Measure the circumference of your hand around the knuckles, excluding the thumb.
• Please note that all the info provided above refers to body measurements, and NOT the dimensions of the garment.
FIT TYPE INFO and DETAILS:
Next to Skin Fit - These snugly-fitting garments are made with stretch fabrics to fit next to the skin to enhance moisture management and thermal efficiency. Garments in this fit category when constructed using Arc'teryx's heavier-weight AR and SV fabrics also perform very well as mid layer pieces, and users should consider selecting a larger size to accommodate a base layer underneath if the intention is to use this layering system as a mid layer option.
Trim Fit - Trim-fitted garments share the motion-friendly traits with Arc'teryx "Athletic" fit garments, but are patterned with lower volume for reduced bulk. These close-fitting pieces layer well under other garments.
Athletic Fit - This is the "Arc'teryx Standard" fit. These complete patterns utilize anatomical shaping and gussets to enhance motion by minimizing excess bulk. Easy layering under or over each item extends seasonal versatility and comfort.
Relaxed Fit - Relaxed fit garments rely on higher volume patterns and a reduced amount of articulation to offer roomy mobility.
Expedition Fit - Cut roomier than the Arc'teryx Athletic fit and suitable for winter/extreme conditions, Expedition (XPD) fit garments are cut larger to accommodate multiple layers without binding or restricting movement.
• You can find the fit type and additional fit info for Arc'teryx styles in the product description FEATURES and SPECIFICATIONS.

Want to wear it everywhere!This hoody is light enough to layer (I wore it under an Atom SV this winter to Ski at Boyne in 10 degree weather) but thick enough to get you through those crisp fall mornings. The built in face mask/neck warmer is the best part. I don't know why they ever made a layering hoodie without one! It is thick enough to function as a balaclava but soft enough not to be itchy on your neck or nose. Dries quickly, too. This was totally worth the cost. It does not have the pictured thumb holes (prototype?) but the sleeves are long enough that I had no trouble with them staying down, especially under an Atom type jacket with a tight wrist and a mitten over top.

HAPPY JACKETMy husband got me addicted to Arc'teryx a few years ago and I jump at every opportunity to get a new jacket. I received this one for Christmas and it's perfect for the mild winters in our South Texas climate. I was a little worried about the fitted nature of it, but I wear light long sleeves or short sleeves under it and I never ever have a restricted feeling. I even wore it this winter while running when we had some unusually cold weather (for us) and the built in neck gaiter saved my face from freezing. I love the feature that the gaiter can be tucked in behind your neck and is not bothersome at all when you're not using it, but is easily accessible. Would buy this jacket a hundred times over and am looking forward to it cooling off here so I can be the raddest kid on the block!

cute... great for picking up manly menThis product does not have thumb holes as advertised. There is no way to secure my sleeves when I get down and dirty in the fresh nar-pow snowboarding. I really need thumb holes like I need a man. Please help!

Love this hoody!This has become my new go-to hoody. I wear it alone on chilly days when climbing or under my atom lt when I need something warmer. The built in balaclava is a great feature!
