Nature is nothing if not adaptive. Wild places and the animals that call them home are in a continual state of adaptation. Migration. Seasonal swings. Burns. New growth. All of nature, lives and breathes. So too must we. Through our years on the mountain, in the marsh and up in trees we have learned the value of a clothing system that adapts. The Ambient Collection is the pinnacle expression of this learning - an active insulation layer that retains heat when you are static and expels it when you are on the move. Ambient is one of the most advanced active insulation layers that has ever been made.
Why we made this: Our goal was to create a layer that worked harder and performed smarter. The answer was in partnering with PrimaLoft® Evolve for the most active insulation on the market. Active insulation’s biggest benefit is its ability to adapt—it traps heat while you’re sitting, and breathes more efficiently than static insulation while you’re on the move. The Ambient jacket or hoody will increase the performance of your clothing system for any pursuit functioning as a mid or outer layer depending on the need.
The Ambient Hoody is everything we like in a mid-layer insulation piece — versatile, packable and durable, but adapts to changing weather conditions and levels of activity. Utilizing low-bulk PrimaLoft® Evolve active insulation, this half-zip pullover hoody delivers plenty of warmth when you!re still, breathes well and manages moisture in active situations and dries quickly if it gets wet. This technical hoody is ideal under a shell during cold weather hunts, on its own during brisk spring and fall evenings in camp, or tossed into your pack for summertime backpacking trips into the high country.
