The Fireball Insulated Hoodie is A lightweight, breathable insulating layer that can be used when working hard in cold conditions. The Fireball is a stripped-back synthetic layer with a highly mobile, unrestrictive cut.
Ultra versatile and highly breathable synthetic insulated hoodie
The ultimate in versatile active insulation. Warm, highly breathable and cut to provide unrestricted movement, its sleek silhouette and refined feature set creates the perfect layer to keep you warm when working hard either as a mid or outer layer. A water repellent finish sheds light rain, ensuring comfort and protection in changeable conditions.
This is an excellent synthetic insulating layer that has stripped away a lot of unnecessary features. The result is a lightweight, breathable layer that excels at most outdoor pursuits.
I’m a big fan of the cut of this jacket. The offset elasticated cuffs minimise cold drafts from entering the jacket and layer well over gloves without being constrictive. The hem of the jacket can be cinched with a simple internal drawcord, which I like as it prevents the cord from being snagged or caught on branches or rocks.
Being synthetic, its insulating value is not compromised by dampness, so it's ideal for pulling on during the day if conditions are worsening and getting colder or windier. Older models of the Fireball Jacket suffered a little because the insulation wasn't breathable. You could get sweat building up while working hard - this latest version uses breathable insulation. It is primarily a winter piece, but I would take this as 'around camp' insulation in the summer.
