Griffon Half-Zip is a gridded microfleece for lightweight warmth on active days in the outdoors. The low profile, hoodless design sits comfortably under layers in cooler weather or keeps the chill off on summer evenings. It's your go-to fleece for multi-pitch routes, speed on the trails, and all-weather-in-a-day mountain excursions.
"For Griffon Half-Zip we've kept things simple with a deep venting zip and no hood to create a gridded fleece that maximises warmth and breathability without adding weight and bulk. We’ve included as much recycled content as we could without affecting the performance or appearance. The simplest way to reduce your carbon footprint - by up to 25% - is to purchase products with recycled content.
You can comfortably wear it under other layers but it also feels great next to the skin as a warm baselayer. This is when the Polygiene treatment really comes into its own and keeps you fresher for longer. The thumb loops help delay the need for gloves, and the chest pocket means you can keep small essentials at hand."
