Appalachian Gear Company's All-Paca™ fleece hoodie made from 100% Alpaca Fiber is super lightweight, breathable, and packable. Great for outdoor adventure sports & activities, but great to hang around in also. It is super warm for its weight. The knit structure and fiber properties allow perspiration to easily escape while retaining its amazing insulating properties. Its exceptional properties allow it to be worn in a wide range of temperatures.
Go ahead and wear a pack with it - the seams are tough and these garments are made for backpacking and climbing. Go ahead and climb with it - it won’t weigh you down and is highly breathable.
All-Paca™ Fleece is designed to wear with one layer or multiple layers under it. Alpaca Fiber doesn’t absorb much moisture so it dries really quickly. Appalachian Gear Company's fleece is not at all thick or bulky, and is warmer than other types of fleece that are much bulkier. Most importantly, Alpaca insulates even when its wet (unlike down and synthetic fibers). Alpaca is truly one of Nature’s high performance fibers while also being very soft and comfortable to wear.
- The Trail Seam™ - Designed for tremendous toughness and durability, so you can be confident the gear will perform under extreme stress and prolonged usage
- Weft Knit - This special knit structure resists “running” - so if you poke a hole in it while you are in the backcountry, the hole may get slightly larger over time, but you don’t have to worry about the hole turning in to a long “run” as experienced in many lightweight knits
- Lightweight - Ensures this is a shirt you'll never hesitate to throw in your pack
- Longer tail - Provides coverage and allows for free movement
Fit: "Regular Fit” Style - Not too snug and not too loose. It looks great and allows for a full range of motion. Natural fibers perform at their optimal level when allowed a little room to breathe. If a more athletic fit is needed, you can go a size down. The women’s cut is slightly shaped - the bust and hip measurements are roughly the same, and the waist is slightly narrower.
Weight: ~10oz (medium)
Note: Since Alpaca is a natural fiber with variability, weights can fluctuate from lot to lot. The weight of the Women’s All-Paca Hoodie ranges from 8-12 ounces, depending on size.
Materials: 100% Alpaca fiber
