While technically a jacket, The North Face Men's Respirator is ideally worn as a mid-layer. With it's slim fit and under-helmet hood, this is exactly the layer you want on the way up that sunny skin track, then cover it up with a shell for the descent.
Featuring a 3/4 zipper, this anorak-style top will go on at the car and stay on all day. Use that shell for when the temps drop or the wind picks up, but the Respirator will be your constant.
The cuffs feature smartly integrated thumb loops for when you need to secure those sleeves as you slip into your jacket, but they stay well out of the way when you don't need them.
The chest pocket is designed to carry your phone or a camera so you can document all the views from the summit and it's situated out of the way of your pack straps so you won't be fussing with either your phone or your pack all day long.
The Respirator is available in Blue Wing Teal and in sizes from Small to Double Extra Large.
