La Sportiva Galaxy Hoody




Labeled as a “do-everything hoody for the do-everything athlete,” this full-zip midlayer really does all mountain sports well. Our testers took it (and the women’s version, the Avail Hoody) from boulderfields in northern California to the long multi-pitches of Red Rock to ski slopes in Colorado, and described it as “deceivingly utilitarian in look, but wonderfully versatile in performance” thanks to breathable, four-way stretch, high pockets (accessible with a harness on), comfortable thumbholes, and an effective anti-odor treatment.
