Macpac ProThermal Hooded Top - Men's
Why we made this
Our highest performing base layer range, the Prothermal Hoody was designed in partnership with the New Zealand Alpine Team and is ideal climbers and weigh-conscious hikers.
The product of our partnership with the New Zealand Alpine Team, the Prothermal Hoody is one of our highest performing base layers. Ideal for climbers and weight-conscious hikers, the incredibly warm Prothermal Hoody is made out of cutting-edge Polartec® Power Grid™. We chose this fabric because it is highly compressible and incredibly lightweight. We like to make highly functional garments that meet the demands of our customers as they venture into some of the world's most hostile environments. Fast drying and highly breathable, this garment offers excellent moisture management and works well with breathable outer layers. We've also treated it with Polygene® for permanent odour control, which means the garment won't smell with use. The fabric is Bluesign® certified and constructed from recycled materials, an expression of our commitment to create products that are better for the planet. Designed for a slim cut with a nice amount of stretch, the Prothermal Hoody makes an excellent base-layer in winter and ideal mid-layer in the summer.

Quaility affordable year round top
owned and worn two of these since 2016, the hooded version has seen extensive use through Scottish winter and in NZ. Excellent, not overly warm so great for active activities in colder weather. Really like them and prefer to Powerstretch tops I've had in past. Will be replacing this Dec when back in NZ. Better colours would be nice, that's the only grip for me!

Naked without it
This thermal is the only one I ever use for almost every outdoor trip, run, or even social outing. With the integrated hood that zips up like a full balaclava if you need you never get caught out with a cold head. The hood works great with a hat too. The arms have a thumb loop which is good if you're wearing gloves over the top. I always wear a thin technical running shirt underneath this.

Best thermal ever
Simply surpurb a good length in the body and arms, super warm. Deals well with sweat when doing the hard yards!

Killer product that excels any environment
I've been thrashing this top since the start of autumn and it's been nothing short of magical. As a base layer it's enormously warm for its weight. As an outer layer it dries fast and accommodates wide range of temperature. Huge fan - merino's now dead to me!
