The Icebreaker Women's Cascade Hood. Ideal refuge from the elements, this hooded Realfleece jacket with its soft, indulgent warmth is utterly addictive. High-loft merino wool fleece redefines comfort, constantly breathing and maintaining an ideal inner climate. The three piece hood frames your face, and has a soft ultra fine printed lining that makes you a thing of beauty in the cold. Multiple zip-secure pockets integrate into its svelte design to conveniently stow essentials.
DECENT FEATURES of the Icebreaker Women's Cascade Hood
My first experience with Icebreaker products. The wool's a little itchy at first, but softens over time and with washing. The hoody isn't super thick but is really warm. I live in what is currently a frozen wasteland and pair this with a light jacket and I'm comfortable... thought I have my doubts about when it hits -40.... Also, this fits PERFECTLY. It's crazy. I'm petite so usually either its too small or the sleeves are too long. This one is snug without being uncomfortable, the perfect length (and longer in the back), and the sleeves are exactly where they should be. A little pricey, but so far totally worth it.
"More Rugged And Durable Than The Quantum Hood"
This hood has surpassed my expectations for it. Super warm and comfy. I often find that in cooler weather I have to wear a vest with my Quantum hood but the Cascade is fine on its own. Also... it's way more durable. I often wore the elbows out in my other wool items (both Icebreaker and Ibex) but this one is still kicking.
