Triple Aught Design Ranger Hoodie LT


Triple Aught Design produces gear fit for the mountains of Afghanistan and the afternoon commute. You can blame founder Patrick Ma for the perfect balance – with his military background and a never-ending-commitment to product testing in the Western state proving grounds. The newly released Ranger Hoodie LT ($220) is no different and evolves on the heavier weight Ranger Hoodie’s design.

Made from Polar-Tec Wind Pro fabric that’s been coated with a DWR treatment, the LT is a lean, mean, piece of kit that will block 4 times as much wind as regular fleece and is even water-resistant in light rain. In other words, it’s got the chops to serve as a dependable piece of outerwear, but can also layer under a shell or parka thanks to its slim cut. Ergonomics weren’t spared at the expense of performance either. The Ranger Hoodie LT has six pockets arranged for quick access, plus a lay flat Aero hood, thumb holes integrated into the seams and discrete pit ventilation. Now, does your hoodie have all that?
