Macpac Prothermal Polartec® Hooded Pullover — Men's
Why we made this
A technical baselayer made from Polartec® Power Grid™, the Prothermal Hooded Pullover was designed in partnership with the New Zealand Alpine Team for performance efficiency — providing advanced warmth and breathability, while also reducing fabric mass.
Designed in partnership with the New Zealand Alpine Team, the Prothermal Polartec® Hooded Pullover is one of our highest performing baselayers. Ideal for climbers and weight-conscious hikers, the Prothermal range is made out of Polartec® Power Grid™ fleece fabric for superior breathability, lightweight warmth and reduced fabric mass for improved compressibility. A minimalist design that maximises fabric performance, the internal grid pattern wicks moisture away from your body during high intensity activity, helping to keep you comfortable for longer. Made with 25% post-consumer recycled content, Polartec® Power Grid™ is bluesign® approved, meaning this fabric has been manufactured with responsible use of resources and the lowest possible impact on people and the environment. Supported by Polygiene® odour control technology, the Prothermal range is intended for multi-day use.

Best in Class
I generate a lot of heat when moving so merino is out of the question. Had 2 of these over the years and love them. Super warm and comfy against the skins and drys exceptionally quickly. Best alpine baselayer hands down.

Brilliant. Very comfy. The built in balaclava style hood is magic.

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!
