Arc'teryx Men's Fortrez Hoody

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfort and warmth Form fitting and perfect as a layer under my shell or on its own. Been using it for hiking or general wear recently but will use it for skiing this winter. Possibly overpriced but very happy with the quality. 31 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by It feels like a piece of armour.... I have always been looking for a hooded fleece, that allows the neck and mouth area to be covered well. I have the Patagonia R1 Hoody also, that I like a lot, but I find the zip quite awkward from a fit perspective, when I zip it fully. The balaclava method used in the Fortez Hoody is superb, it works really well, a snug fit. I find the hand pockets also useful, a lot of pieces only have the chest area zip pocket. If there is one thing I would add to make it a complete piece, I wish the sleeves had a thump loophole, so the sleeves can be extended to partially cover the hand, like in the R1 Hoody. But other than that, this has been a perfect piece. When I went into the store, I didn't intend to buy this piece, but I was so impressed with the way it fitted to my torso, that I left with it in hand 31 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent quality I bought this for my son who insisted that he did not need it. He wore every day of skiing and it is now his favourite warm piece of clothing due to the light fabric and good quality and performance. 02 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good top, but quite pricey Good top, fit is small and short (waist and not below). 21 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great fleece I am big fan of Arc'teryx's products and whilst this is designed for climbing, I found it a great ski base layer. The description says its one of the warmest fleece jackets they produce and I can believe it. I have just returned from a week skiing in the French Alpes and found that most days I didn't require anything more than this, a base layer and a hard shell (to keep the wind off). Only when the temps dipped below -10 degrees did I feel the need to wear the hood up below my helmet. The inbuilt neck gaiter/balaclava also did brilliant service keeping the occasional blizzard from freezing my face! I would definitely recommend buying one of these to add to your collection of layers 03 March 2014
