Why We Made This

We found nothing existed between a fleece layer and loft insulation that met the demands of active cold-weather pursuits. Our solution was to create a high-performance insulating mid-layer with superior breathability for active pursuits. Constructed with a DWR-treated durable nylon face, the Kelvin Active Hoody can be worn as an outer layer in mild conditions or as a breathable, insulating mid-layer in the late season.
