The new Geon Hoody is a mid weight stretch fleece offering low bulk all round insulation for climbing, scrambling and hiking in cold conditions.

Rab says

If you need an every-activity winter midlayer, our new Women’s Geon Hoody ticks all the boxes. With its quick-dry Thermic™ stretch fleece and upgraded mountain feature set, it’s a great way to introduce extra versatility to your layering system.

As a midweight stretch fleece, our Women’s Geon Hoody offers low-bulk mountain insulation for easy layering, as well as the ideal ‘active mountain’ combination of movement, breathability and insulation. Built from hydrophobic Thermic™ stretch fleece with integrated elastane, it is equipped with a brushed grid backer for extra strength, as well as smooth flatlock seams and a rolled hem and cuff for outstanding comfort. Other key mountain features include a low-profile under-helmet hood with soft chin guard for draught-free insulation. They also include a full-length front YKK® zip for flexible venting, plus a pair of secure, zipped hand pockets.

While the Women’s Geon Hoody is great as an insulating layer for high-tempo winter scrambles and ascents, it is equally practical as quick-grab warmth for early summer starts, impromptu rest sessions and casual evening downtime.

Our Verdict

Rab's Womens Geon Hoody falls into the mid-weight category for fleece. This top provides a good amount of warmth and comfort in a nice looking package. The Thermic stretch fleece is versatile and durable so it's worth the weight over lighter alternatives. It does a good job in regulating heat more effectively than normal, traditional fleece. It allows excess heat to escape when things warm up but in colder conditions that warm air can be trapped in to keep you warm. It is also really good at wicking moisture and dries pretty quickly too so it works really well for a range of outdoor activities.

The Geon combines comfort, performance and value really well. This is a great all-rounder, from acting as an effective mid-layer in cold conditions to being a single outer layer in milder conditions this fleece works as well for hiking as it does for comfortable casual wear. This hoody version adds that extra coverage and warmth but still has the ability to vent well with the half length front zip which will appeal to many.
