I love being outdoors, but I live in a high Lyme disease area. I'm always on the lookout for light colored outer garments that allow you to spot deer ticks easily for quick removal. This hoodie fits the bill. It is soft, comfortable, and has a fairly snug fitting hood to pull over your head for bushwhacking, when you don't want ticks in your hair. The secret to Arc'teryx is layering the pieces. This one is not excessively warm, but it's roomy enough to be layered with a base layer underneath, and thin enough to put another layer on top, or a waterproof layer, if needed. I like the concept of lightweight layers- it really works for maximizing warmth and comfort. Large pocket in front with zippers on either side is roomy and easily accessible.
