What is the Boreas Pull-on, exactly? Is it a long-sleeve shirt? Is it a soft-shell jacket? It's hard to pin it to one particular category, because its performance spans so many. In basic terms, the Boreas is a lightweight stretch pullover made of Matrix SWS (Single Weave Stretch) fabric. The hood makes it look like a cold-weather piece in photos, but it's really at home providing sun protection in warmer climates, whether they are deserts or glaciers. That's what's so interesting about the Boreas - you could wear it on the beach in the summer just as easily as on a trek to base camp in the Himalayas.

Can't Live Without It
The boreas is truly awesome. I wear mine almost everyday it is the type of layer that you will always keep in your pack no matter what season it is that versatile.
Awesome year-round piece
This is one of my favorite layers. I wear it on windy days when I'm canoeing, chilly days of climbing, or as a summit windshirt. It fits perfectly and the stretch is great for movement. Just buy it. You won't be disappointed.
Year round performance
Had this piece for a few seasons now and absolutely love it. It's a great outer layer to wear multi-pitch rock climbing or on the skin track. The hood offers excellent sun and wind protection and can stretch to fit over a climbing helmet. I use this piece year round for multiple sports.
