Macpac ProThermal Top - Men's
Why we made this
Our highest performing base layer range, the Prothermal Zip 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 Zip 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 Zip makes an excellent base-layer in winter and ideal mid-layer in the summer

trying to choose between this and the merino 220 for up in alpine which is better?
BEST ANSWER: Hi Chris - thanks for your comment. These are both well suited for Alpine use - neither is better but are different choices which is usually a personal preference of wool vs synthetic. I would recommend that you visit your local Macpac store and try these on if you are able.
Items weight in men's large?
BEST ANSWER: Hello Michael, this garment is roughly 190 g. Cheers :)
