Prometheus Design Werx – Spectrum Hoodie

Performance, Technical Hoodie in 4-Way Stretch Polartec for 3+ Season Use


New for Fall 2017, San Francisco based specialty adventure products group Prometheus Design Werx introduces their Spectrum Hoodie. This design is a high performance, 4-way stretch, technical full zip hoodie in a streamlined and minimalist design which will find itself practical, useful and versatile in a wide variety of uses cases. Equally at home on a cool, crisp morning at a challenging red point, piloting your rig over the Rubicon, a last minute red eye to Tokyo, to a day of sampling food trucks. Wear over a tee, or easily under a shell or down sweater. Made with a Polartec Power Stretch Pro the Spectrum offers unparalleled freedom of movement, a smooth face with DWR to shrug off the damp-sprinkles, and a lofted fleece inner face that is exceptionally comfortable. Designed and built in CA, USA.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“We wanted the Spectrum Hoodie to be one of our most versatile mid-layers. That’s where the style name is drawn from; a hoodie that could function and operate in a wide spectrum of conditions. One that you could grab-and-go in 3+ seasons and for almost any activity. This hoodie really moves with you, the technical performance of the Polartec Power Stretch Pro is some of the best we’ve ever come across and used. The Spectrum Hoodie is our favorite travel hoodie due to its versatile weight, exceptional comfort, and clean-neat appearance. We specially cut the MLH hood so it could be pulled over the eyes to block light so you can catch a cat nap when you’re on the fly. We went back to the drawing board when it came to looking at how to newly design a cuff with thumbholes, and created new pattern which is not only draft resistant but is more comfortable and sleek. The Spectrum also features 4 pockets, dummy cord keepers, smooth flatlock stiching, and double elbows on high wear points. This hoodie is for anyone who’s actions speak louder than words.”


The PDW Spectrum Hoodie is available for purchase in Syth Lord Black and Machine Mineral Gray, via their website,

    This looks really good even though I don’t usually buy synthetic mid layers

      Why not?

      • straps says:

        Prob’ly because nothing balances heat retention/heat transfer/odor control like wool.

        That said, I’ll be looking at one of these as an urban chillax solution.
