Triple Aught Design (TAD) is no stranger to the technical athletic apparel space, with a colossal variety of options that have been tested to provide true durability and comfort in harsh conditions. Their most recent offering, the Vortex Half-Zip, is an exercise in base-layer supremacy, boasting some of their most advanced construction yet.
The Vortex is a 7.9-ounce cold weather base-layer (or all-season mid-layer) that’s extremely lightweight but promises unsurpassed durability and outstanding weather resistance thanks to its Polartec Power Grid insulation. Alongside the garment’s high-abrasion reinforcements and unique construction, a variety of technical thumb-hole cuffs and deep zippers provide unrestricted movement — prime real estate for a variety of outdoor applications — as well as a streamlined storage solution that utilizes bicep pockets to keep your gear close at hand.
