Winter Performer

I hit the Adirondack High Peaks yesterday (2/8/14) with a bundle of new gear. I was blown away by the performance of the Northshield Hoodie. It was a cold day (0-15F), but heading up Giant Mtn meant building up a fair amount of body heat. I was comfortable all the way up the mountain with just a midweight techwick baselayer and the Northshield Hoodie.

I found the hood itself to be my favorite part of the top. A winter hat had me too warm, but the hood was the perfect combination of being a barrier from the wind and cold, while still allowing a fair amount of breathability.

The other aspect of the Northshield Hoodie I loved was the high zipper. Combined with a neck gaiter, the high zipper provided great protection from even the coldest gusts.

This will be my go-to piece of gear for winter hiking. I cannot say enough about the performance of this piece of gear.

Great atheletic piece!

Previously I purchased this in the 1/4 Zip collared model and was soo pleased with it that I had to have the hoodie as well. For the record the hoodie did not disappoint. This piece is really comfortable, stylish, and has highly reflective qualities (love that). It goes well under a down vest, fleece jacket, or heavy winter coat. This hoodie is not the warmest that I have tried but it does great as a layer piece. As seen in the website pictures this hoodie has a longer cut in the body and in the arms (I like the extra length though some of may not). The construction is very good making it wash well. The material that this piece is made out of and the high end construction promotes a long life for this hoodie (what all buyers deserve). I have a variety of layer pieces and this instantly became one of my favorite goto pieces. I am happy with my purchase.

great for a winter trail runner

I got this to use for trail running in temps from mid 20 to mid 40's it serves that purpose perfectly except for the fact that I had to make a cable slot in the back of the chest pocket. The Hood is exceptionally comfortable not to tight or too bulky, The Orange color is close enough to Hunters Blaze that I feel comfortable running during deer season.

Wish it were blaze orange all around.

I like the bright colors when running but the back had mostly gray instead of orange.
