First Look: Nomad Duo-Down Hoody and Hoody Vest

posted on August 7, 2020
Weather is always changing, and in the mountainous West, this holds doubly true. For just these sort of variable conditions, Nomad has unveiled its Duo-Down Hoody and Hoody Vest. Featuring a Downproof shell fabric with a water-resistant coating, and 700-fill duo-down in essential zones around the torso, the hoodie stays incredibly warm. Thanks to that water-resistant coating, the duo-down will not mat down when wet, instead retaining its insulating structure. Additionally, baffled compartments ensure consistent heat pockets within the garment, while an adjustable hood prevents heat loss from the head. Finally, an internal adjustable hem allows the hoodie to be cinched tightly about the waist when not in use. The entire thing weighs just 10 ounces.

At seven ounces, the Nomad Hoody Vest utilizes the same design as its sleeved cousin, simply ditching the sleeves to make it a great go to option for less chilly days, or as a mid-layer. Both the Hoody and Hoody Vest come in Veil Cervidae camo, for excellent blending ability all season long.
