Monkey Phur: Polartec High Loft Grid
In combining the powers of soft and fluffy Polartec High Loft and the superior moisture-wicking abilities of Polartec Power Grid, Mountain Hardwear’s Monkey Phur was born. The long, fine, fluffy fibres of High Loft trap more air and provide outstanding warmth and breathability, while the gridded structure of Power Grid brings unparalleled moisture-wicking capabilities to the mix. These qualities combine forces to make a fabric that’s super-soft, comfortable, lightweight and compressible for all your cold-weather needs.
Hardface technology was developed by Polartec and is a means of fusing a special polymer to the outer layer of fleece fabric. This makes the surface of the fleece smooth and abrasion-resistant, and massively improves its water and wind-resistance, while allowing the levels of stretch and breathability to stay the same.

After one month of usage of this hooded jacked in harsh enviroments in mountain terrain with high altitude and even in a chill walk in down town, it fullifiled all the expectations I had. It has rly good breathability, it's rly fluffy, soft, one of the best fleece's jackets I've ever wore. It sits rly well on the shoulders and in the arms and it's very comfortable in the movement. One of the big advantages as well, is that it has a fit hoodie that can also fit the helmet, also it has thumb loops in ortder to maximize coverage and keep sleeves warm. It's one of the best choices you can get when you're in a search of a fleece that can fit you either for bouldering-hiking or for everyday usage in town
