The Vertx Manitou Hybrid Hooded Jacket is a multi-functional hoody that is the perfect blend of warmth and mobility. This jacket features PrimaLoft Gold Activated insulation that works to keep your core temperature regulated without compromising performance while stretch sleeves enable dynamic movement when seconds count. The athletic carry fit easily conceals gear on the waistline, never revealing your readiness for action and allows for layering to change up your look on a moment's notice. When the job calls for intensity in both activity and weather, the VertX Manitou Tactical Hoody is functional to its core.
So this is a mix between a hoodie and a jacket. If you have to pack light it's a good go to for various situations. My only gripe is it seems to be tight in the shoulders. I am a bit broad so not all will have this issue. It is extremely comfy and stretches very well for all movement. The hood is fantastic in that it allows nearly full peripheral vision which is awesome. Pair it with a hat to get full coverage you would get from a bigger hood. The inside zippers a good for accessing IWB on your front discreetly. It's a bit long in the back so if you sit it will kind of cover your back better than a traditional hoodie. It's a bit pricey for a hoodie but if you take into account versatile nature it's worth it.
