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).

My 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!
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.
This 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!
