Manufacturers Description:

Our Whisper sleeping bag liner is a lightweight option for anyone looking for a compac and soft sleep sack for travel.  The material feels very nice against the skin and won’t latch onto other fabrics when used inside a sleeping bag or under some blankets in the loft of a winter cabin.  It packs small enough to take along anywhere you travel, and using it in a sleeping bag will help to keep your bags lining material cleaner on extended backcountry outings.   Tapered for maximum efficiency yet the fabric is supple enough to allow your body to move throughout the night.

Manufacturer Description:

The Fortrez Hoody performs as a cold-weather layering piece and as a standalone on cool, drier days. The abrasion-resistant fleece, Polartec® Power Stretch® with Hardface® Technology, provides warmth, stretch, sheds moisture, and layers easily. The streamlined ScubaHood™ fits comfortably under a helmet, and an integrated Phasic™ AR panel serves as a neck gaiter. Articulated patterning improves mobility, and the long hem rides comfortably under a harness and has a trim fit to help seal out drafts.
