When the situation calls for serious warmth, reach for the Bastion Hoodie from Triple Aught Design.
This evolution of the classic belay jacket packs absorb insulation into a light and manageable body. It’s a 100% nylon shell, with a DWR coating to repel moisture and light rain. The inside is packed with Polartec Power Fill, which is 80% recycled material, and provides a lot of warmth for its light weight. It packs down extremely well – right into its own hunter’s pocket – and doesn’t take up too much room in your pack. And it fits very comfortably under a shell when the weather turns sour.
In true Triple Aught Design fashion, the Bastion Hoodie is engineered for performance and utility; there are dual waist-belt hand pockets, bicep pockets on both arms, and an interior chest pocket for stashing your gear close at hand. The hunter’s pocket stores your gloves, and is the stuff sack the Bastion Hoodie stuffs into. On the hood, shoulder, biceps and forearms are reinforcements made of TAD’s Amphibious Cloth, which adds durability for tough use.
What makes this jacket better than so many others? Triple Aught Design is one of those companies you know you fan trust to make an utterly tough jacket that can handle any situation you throw at it. It’s ready for climbing and summiting the toughest of mountain peaks. Their apparel can be pricey, but they’ll never let you down. Maybe that’s why it’s called the Bastion Hoodie.
