Based on the guide-favorite Sandstone Soft Shell, the Sandstone Hoodie provides active performance with an alpine focus. Great for everything from trail running to alpine climbing.
The primary benefit of a soft shell is derived from fabric that sheds weather but still stretches and breathes at an elevated rate during mountain activity. This performance attribute is why First Ascent stretch-woven soft shells are such perfect choices for cold-weather activities that require constant temperature regulation and liberating stretch.
Our durable water-repellent (DWR) finish causes moisture to bead up on the surface so it rolls off or evaporates rather than soaking into the fabric.
"My favorite jacket for everything. I loved the versatility of the original Sandstone, and by adding a stretchy hood and thumb loops, we have extended the range of this softshell to the highest of mountains."
