The Gaea blends minimalist design with technical intelligence in a piece that combines breathability, insulation, weather protection and ergonomic freedom. Lightweight, hydrophobic Octa® Loft synthetic insulation in the front and shoulders adds warmth with minimal bulk. Lumin™ 100% nylon face fabric sheds wind and light precipitation, and the breathable, moisture wicking Torrent™ back panel gives ventilation and freedom of movement. Features are pared to the essential, each selected to enhance performance during runs, cross country skis, snowshoe races and other cold weather, high output activities. Two easily accessible rear stash pockets hold gloves, hat or energy foods. An adjustable drawcord at the hem seals out cold, low profile thumbholes hold sleeves in place, and reflective blades on the back and sleeves improve visibility in low light conditions.
