The ubiquitous hoodie—it’s a versatile piece of apparel, and we all have at least one in our closet. There are many people who will wear their favorite hoodie everywhere from the grocery store to a backcountry campsite. The thing is, hoodies haven’t changed much since their inception. Most hoodies are rather bulky and heavy, and they don’t even insulate all that well.
This is why Outdoor Vitals has decided to create a modern upgrade to the classic with the Ventus Active Hoodie. By combining cutting-edge insulation technology and clever ventilation design, the Outdoor Vitals Ventus Active Hoodie weighs half that of traditional hoodies and fleeces, compacts down as small as a softball, and was built to go anywhere.
The Outdoor Vitals Ventus Active Hoodie is live on Kickstarter. Travelers and ultralight backpackers will love how well this hoodie packs down. Runners, cyclists, and hikers will appreciate its feather-light properties and smart ventilation mapping. Everyone else will dig it for its good looks and cozy comfort. It’s a win-win-win all around.

Unique Features of the Outdoor Vitals Ventus Active Hoodie
Warmth, versatility, and comfort are the key components that make a good hoodie great. The Outdoor Vitals Ventus Active Hoodie has each of those in spades.
The warmth-to-weight ratio of the Ventus Active Hoodie is extraordinary. Outdoor Vitals has stuffed the hoodie with an advanced 3DeFx+ synthetic insulation that weighs 25 grams, or about a third of other commonly used synthetic insulations. As a result, the Ventus Active Hoodie weighs a mere seven ounces, and even less than that in certain sizes.
That advanced insulation also compresses well and effortlessly fluffs up when unpacked. When stowed away within its own hidden storage pocket, the hoodie can easily fit into the crevices of your backpack or carry-on travel bag. When unleashed, it’ll quickly loft up to provide you with an insulating layer of warmth.
All of that wonderful fluff is wrapped in a super soft 2-way mechanical stretch fabric. Much like every other aspect of this hoodie, the fabric has been smartly engineered. Body-mapped breathability and strategically-coated body panel placement make this hoodie durable, protective, and insulated in all the right places while integrating awesome body ventilation features throughout the garment.
The Outdoor Vitals Ventus Active Hoodie has been given an athletic cut that’ll look as good at the lodge as it does on the trail, and the hood itself has been crafted with special care to provide warmth and wind protection when you need it without becoming burdensome—striking the perfect balance.
