The Powerline Hoodie is your go-to layer for cold weather fatbike rides.
Hardface Polartec® Windpro fleece cuts the edge off the wind generated at moderate fatbike speeds, and the velour interior is soft enough to wear all day next to skin. The 4 way jersey stretch Windpro fleece sports excellent breathability due to its tight knit, non-laminated composition. You will not want to take this hoodie off!
Features include a 1/3 length zipper and a spacious stretch woven chest pocket. The sleeves are cut long and include thumb loops for a little extra hand warmth and grip insulation. The hood is designed to be semi-ninja with a chin-height zip and slightly loose hood to cover hats, while yet still trim enough to fit under a helmet. Waist length is slightly longer for tucking into pants with ample coverage on the backside. Flatlocked seams throughout.
Our favorite layering systems go something like this:
Temps 15 and above: Wool T shirt, Hoodie, Wind jacket (Patagonia Houdini or similar) for warming up / long fast descents
Temps 0 - 15: Wool T shirt, Long sleeve thin wool shirt, Hoodie, Wind jacket for warming up / long fast descents
