The Arc'teryx Men's Stryka Hoodie hugs your body close while you ascend a skin track, drop into a new trail, or backpack through crisp fall weather. Fluid in fit and detailed right down to the balaclava-style hood, this midweight hoodie fills in the gap in your layers between your thin next-to-skin layer and that heavyweight insulating layer you reach for when truly frigid weather rolls in.
I mainly ski in this layer and it works very well as a warmer base layer. I typically wear this under my shell down to temps in the mid 20's. Anything colder than that I wear another thicker mid layer over it. The material on this is stretchy and the inside micro fleece is very comfortable. The hood is awesome on really cold windy days where it blocks wind and blowing snow from going down your back. This layer is so comfortable that I wish I had one for everyday of the week. I basically live in this thing from fall to spring. Typical Arc-teryx quality that you can count on.
I could live in this hoodie in fall & winter. It has an athletic, close fit which I like and is a little stretchy so it moves well with me. Looking forward to trying the balaclava hoodie under my snow hemet on a powder day.
