The Arc'Teryx Delta LT Zip is a grid fleece pullover (or "waffle fleece," if you prefer a more appetizing analogy) that works best when worn as a first or second layer in cold conditions. Waffle fleece, while not as delicious as its namesake, has several advantages when used as a midlayer; it provides more insulating power for its weight than regular pile fleece thanks to the air that gets trapped in the channels between the grid squares, and those channels also provide a convenient avenue for water vapor to escape so you don't get soaked with sweat. The half-zip design allows for ventilation during periods of high activity.

The company’s mascot, Archaeopteryx Lithographica, was the first reptile to sprout feathers and free itself from the constraints of the horizontal world. LikeArchaeopteryx, Arc’Teryx is constantly pursuing new innovations that allow you to do the same.
