The men's Descender Long Sleeve Zip Hood is a highly technical mid layer, designed to move, breathe, and insulate during high-intensity alpine activities. It's made from 240gm of Icebreaker's textured corespun terry fabric. Corespun technology uses nylon fibres wrapped in merino wool to provide stretch, durability, and improve the sweater's quick-drying capabilities. The Descender also features a high-loft brushed backing with heat-trapping channels designed to help regulate body temperature, while lighter side panels dump excess moisture and ventilate during periods of high-output.

The Descender Long Sleeve Zip features a shaped hood, designed to fit snug so that it provides protection against wind and rain. The front zipper and chest pocket zipper are off-colour, and the front zipper is backed by an internal storm flap that has a chin guard for protection against chafing. The zippered chest pocket features a media cord port and the two front hand pockets also secure with zippers. Thumbholes at the sleeve cuffs make layering this hoody easy.
