I’m not sure how people were built back in the day, but traditional sweatshirts seemed to have been designed with the short-chested in mind. So that any tall folks who deign to grab something off a high shelf will expose the rest of the room to an eyeful of midriff. Not so with Battenwear.With rock climbing in their DNA, Batten’s Reach Up Sweatshirt has longer body and a special gusset in the armpit so you can Reach Up with confidence! Despite the innovation, the rest of the garment has the same quality of yesteryear. Cut from a 16oz. 80/20 cotton/poly fleece, the entire thing is flat-seamed so the stitching is rock solid and won’t itch or irritate. You even get a pocket! Made in Canada.
