Dead Bird Cold Wx Hoody

The Cold Wx Hoody is part of the Dead Bird Cold Weather lineup we saw at SHOT 2016. Like all Arc'teryx gear it was designed with feedback from men and women who require the highest quality technical gear for survival (vs. indulging their fashion sense). These SMEs include members of CANSOFCOM (Canadian Special Operations Forces Command), Emergency Search and Rescue Personnel in remote and rugged locations, experienced mountain guides from around the glove and the gendarmes of the Le Centre National d’Instruction Ski et Alpinisme de la Gendarmerie (to name just a few).

This will be extremely significant to many people. I just like the damn hoody, which should not be mistaken for the thin cotton hoody worn by tens of thousands of sullen teenagers across the continent. This is a Coreloft insulated stand-alone cold weather garment with 2-layers of softshell GORE Windstopper on the outside.

While you're there, check out the new full zip Naga.  That thing's like fuzzy sex with a zipper but better when it's cold as hell outside and a much better buy for the money if you're buying it instead of getting it as a gift. More on the full zip Naga later on.
