The high collar offers further coverage and runs straight into the under helmet hood for when it's really chilly.
The Focus Hoody has the a YKK Flat Vislon front zipper, complete with storm flap and chin guard. There are also two hand warmer pockets and fabric thumb loops to keep the sleeves in place and your hands warm. This is a great versatile layer which you'll want with you for any activity.

Customer Reviews of Rab Focus Hoody (Summer 18)
This Focus Hoody from Rab is my go to jacket for early morning activities during late spring and early autumn (as well as the summer when it's particularly brisk first thing in the morning).
Perfectly suited for dry, cool conditions, the merino wool is contoured, soft (and cuddly - other halves take note!) and with good warmth, but not overly so.
I really like the decently-sized pockets as well as a well-positioned and sized, Napoleon. The zips are free-running (yet to snag) and the hood might be helmet compatible but it's not nearly as big as other such hoods and that's fine with me - it can easily fit a beanie if required.
Just about smart enough for the odd evening out as well, it's a winner for me, especially as it's easily covered with a light rain jacket if required.
Lightweight is the icing on the cake!
