AW14 Sneak Preview #5: Marmot Men's Calen Hoody

Cue trumpet fanfare, it's time for another Sneak Preview! A few weeks back we had a look at what Montane had to offer for Autumn/Winter, today I thought we'd have a little gander at what to expect from Marmot for AW14!

Brand new for us here at Outdoorkit, let's say hello to the Marmot Men's Calen Hoody. It's one from Marmot's insulated range and utilises Primaloft synthetic insulation. PrimaLoft is incredibly soft, lightweight, breathable and comes with excellent water repellency so you remain dry, warm and comfortable even under the most extreme conditions. So it excels in the British climate!

The Calen features a lightweight attached hood giving you extra weather protection and that 'hoodie' aesthetic for casual around town use. It has spaciously sized zippered hand warmer pockets and a zippered chest pocket, so there's plenty of room to store all those essentials in whilst on the move. An interior zip pocket and interior mesh storage pocket provide extra security for more valuable accessories.

The inner of the hoody features a DriClime lined collar, a bi-component denier gradient dimensional knit made of two different denier yarns. Using extremely fine deniers this technology is extremely light with superior wicking performance, keeping you nice and cool when the pace picks up.

Moving down a tad, the hoody's elastic bound cuffs ensure a snuggish fit around your arms to keep the heat in and the cold breeze out. There's also an elastic drawcord hem for an adjustable fit and 'Angel Wing Movement' for all round dexterity throughout the arms.

When it arrives in with us the Calen Hoody will cost around £108 of your finest British pounds and weighs in at about 640g, so pretty lightweight too.

We've got 4 colours due in; Blue Sapphire, Brown Moss, Black and Steel. Keep an eye out for it from September and onwards!
