Mountain Hardwear Desna Grid Vest
The Desna Grid Vest is a super versatile stretch fleece from Mountain Hardwear that's great for layering or wearing as an extra outer layer. As one of their most popular designs, it remains pretty much unchanged from 2015, keeping the super-efficient Polartec Power Grid construction, which features a gridded pattern for added breathability, packability and warmth. It's also equipped with Hardface fleece panels in the shoulders and sides make for extra durability and wind-resistance in exposed areas. Other features include an active cut for freedom of movement and harness compatible hand pockets, making the Desna Grid Vest the perfect mid or top layer for any activity, be it autumn bouldering, ski touring or alpine climbing.

Polartec Power Grid
Formerly known as Power Dry High Efficiency, Polartec Power Grid fleece pushes the limits of Power Dry by using a patented grid structure to create super-warm, breathable and moisture-wicking base and mid-layers that are lighter, less bulky and more compressible. The grid structure increases the thermal properties of the fabric by creating channels that are always in contact with your skin or base-layer, so can efficiently disperse and redistribute moisture build-up quicker than any other fabric.
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.
