A technical mid layer designed to insulate and breathe during cold, high–output days up in the mountains, out on the slopes or on the trails, the Mens Descender Vest provides essential core warmth without inhibiting movement. It's made with textured terry corespun fabric, which features merino wool fibers wrapped around a nylon core, for increased durability and strength while retaining next–to–skin softness.
The Descender Vest is quick–drying and the right choice for effective layering. It features a high–loft brushed back with heat–trapping channels to help regulate your temperature during technical high–exertion pursuits like skiing, climbing or running in cold conditions. Lighter–weight side panels help manage moisture and dump excess heat when you're moving fast, and the zipped chest pocket with media cord port keeps your music flowing or stashes small essentials.

Nature created Icebreaker merino wool as protection against the scorching summers and freezing winters of New Zealand’s rugged Southern Alps mountain range. The merino is one of the world’s most ancient and toughest breeds of sheep.
Icebreaker has pioneered the use of merino wool in the wilderness since 1994, and have now fused nature and technology to create merino layers for the outdoors, for performance sports, and for the city. Icebreaker merino garments are soft and non-itch, warm in the cold and cool in the heat, they breathe to prevent clamminess, and have a miraculous ability to warn off stinkiness.
