The Defend Thermo Hoodie has more than warmth on its mind, with breathable insulation that’ll wick away sweat while keeping you snug and protecting you from the cold. This hoodie goes the extra mile with abrasion-resistant, wind-blocking fabric that will add to the toasty times as you hit that chilly downhill.
Best of all, the form-fitting hood fits easily under your helmet to provide that next-level defense against the cold as you pedal through the rough stuff. A convenient and secure stash pocket at the hip means you can rip with your stuff held in place, no matter how rowdy you get.
WHY WE LIKE IT: The Defend Thermo Hoodie is the single most important and by favorite piece of kit in my gear bag. I’ve probably worn this polartec equipped hooded jersey more than any other piece gear I own. Ideal for colder temps, obviously, the Thermo Hoodie makes for a great base layer but can be worn as a main piece as well. It’ll keep your core running at an optimal temp with making you over heat…depending on how hard your working on the climb. Fox’s Defend Thermo Hoodie uses Polartec Power Grid technology offering channeled insulation that provides enhanced lightweight, moisture wicking insulation.
