Triple Aught Design produces gear fit for the mountains of Afghanistan and the afternoon commute. You can blame founder Patrick Ma for the perfect balance – with his military background and a never-ending-commitment to product testing in the Western state proving grounds. The newly released Ranger Hoodie LT ($220) is no different and evolves on the heavier weight Ranger Hoodie’s design.
Made from Polar-Tec Wind Pro fabric that’s been coated with a DWR treatment, the LT is a lean, mean, piece of kit that will block 4 times as much wind as regular fleece and is even water-resistant in light rain. In other words, it’s got the chops to serve as a dependable piece of outerwear, but can also layer under a shell or parka thanks to its slim cut. Ergonomics weren’t spared at the expense of performance either. The Ranger Hoodie LT has six pockets arranged for quick access, plus a lay flat Aero hood, thumb holes integrated into the seams and discrete pit ventilation. Now, does your hoodie have all that?
