Craghoppers Miska

£40.00

A very light fleece and a really comfortable one too, with a luxurious microfleece finish that feels soft against the skin. There’s plenty of stretch in the fabric and it has a lovely high collar to bury your face into, plus decent-length arms that won’t expose cold flesh when reaching forward or upwards. In the hills, it’s an excellent low-bulk ...

Lowe Alpine Micro Grid

£40.00

This lightweight fleece from Lowe Alpine was a snug fit next to the skin, but a little tight when worn over a lighter base- layer. The collar is a good height and fit, and the elasticated cuffs were easy to pull up and didn’t go baggy. This is a basic top with a medium-length zip and no pockets. The Aleutian ...

Timberland System Fleece Vest

£40.00

This fleece mid layer is a good all-rounder if you want some proper pockets but don’t want to look like you’ve just stepped off the cable car from the high peaks. The fabric has a tight knit, making it a little more wind-resistant than some without reducing breathability. The material also looks quite inoffensive and not overtly technical. Two chest ...

Gelert Vesanto

£40.00

This windproof fleece from Gelert is a generous fit without being overly big. The collar is high and snug and it has elasticated cuffs, which are both comfortable and versatile. The fabric also feels soft against the skin. A simple but effective warm and windproof jacket that is superb value for money. Main gripe is the pockets, which double as ...

Sprayway Genesis TL

£40.00

This fleece mid layer weighs 576g (size L); midweight fleece, so quite warm; two hip pockets; full-length front zip; adjustable shockcord hem. But heavier than thinner fleece and warmer too, so not that easy to control temperature; pocket access is easily obscured by rucksacks belts; no hood.

Columbia Intrepid 100 Half-Zip

£40.00

Good Lycra cuffs – no bagginess at all – and the collar is a great fit. The hem is a little short and this is accentuated when using the drawcord adjuster. The Polartec 100 fabric provides excellent warmth for weight and the zip is about spot-on for spilling heat.

Regatta Odette II

£40.00

This midweight fleece from Regatta is wonderfully comfortable and an excellent fit. However, the hem is slightly short, making it less suitable for year-round use than it could be. The deep handwarmer pockets are great and the inside pockets will easily house a map.   Colours: Zing/vapor, black/vapor, flush/vapor, starfish/vapor, ice cream/vapor, minto/vaporSizes: 8-20Fabric: Polartec Classic 200Men’s version: Discovery IIIContact: ...

Craghoppers Kiwi

£40.00

This midweight fleece from Craghoppers is a great fit – just the right length in the arms and body. The fabric is warm and snug and the mid-height collar and soft cuffs are comfortable. Chunkier zip pulls on the handwarmer pockets would be good, but the two internal map pockets are really useful.   Colours: Dark damson, heather, dark navy/dark ...

Sprayway Outlaw Half-Zip

£45.00

A great fit, especially in the body and sleeves. The recycled Polartec fleece fabric has plenty of stretch in it, enabling easy movement and making it easy to pull over a base-layer – even a long-sleeved top. The Lycra cuffs are comfortable and easy enough to roll up, while the collar is high and snug. The Outlaw’s recycled fleece fabric ...

Rohan Silver Fleece Zip

£45.00

Getting hot and sweaty tends to result in smelly gear, which is none too pleasant whatever the circumstances. The X-Static silver fibres in this fleece mid layer reduce odour by controlling the growth of bacteria. Apart from that smell advantage, this is a useful top for wearing under other mid layers, as it is a thin and lightweight fleece that ...

Columbia Intrepid PT 100 Full Zip

£45.00

This Columbia Intrepid PT 100 fleece has a full zip and generous fit that’s rather big on the shoulders. Elasticated cuffs are comfy; the sleeves are a good-length and the collar is nice and deep. The fleece zips up left to right, which felt awkward. With two useful hand pockets and lined front panels, the Intrepid makes a solid lightweight ...

Millet Techno Stretch

£45.00

This is a lightweight fleece mid layer that is also low in price. It is a thin fleece which is slightly more wind-resistant than some and has excellent breathability. Put it on as part of a layering system and it performs well either under waterproofs, soft shells or other fleece layers. It is very stretchy too which has allowed it ...

Result Extreme Climate Stopper

£49.00

An awful cut and the shape of the neck is all wrong – bulky and tight at the front with a big gap at the back. Generous sizing with bulky sleeves. Soft, comfortable fabric, though, which worked well, but the poor neck design made it awkward to zip up properly, which affected overall performance. No additional venting and it does ...

Columbia Intrepid PT 200 Full Zip

£50.00

This midweight fleece from Columbia could be made to measure, and when it comes to insulation layers, fit makes a lot of difference. The collar is the perfect height and snug without being tight, while the elasticated cuffs can be pulled up and down without losing their shape. The Classic Polartec 200 fabric is lovely and soft, too. With such ...

Jack Wolfskin Nakina

£50.00

This midweight women’s fleece from Jack Wolfskin has quite a long body, but the soft fabric ensures a fairly good, comfortable fit. The arms might be a little too long, but the high, cosy collar and soft fleece cuffs are impressive. It’s warm, and the handwarmer pockets are a good size, but they’re positioned quite low, so are not that ...

The North Face W TKA 200 Full Zip

£50.00

This midweight women’s fleece from The North Face is very, very comfortable – it might even feel like wearing a second skin! It has a streamlined, contoured fit with close-fitting arms and a soft, high collar to bury your chin into. It’s light, too, and warm, and although the cuffs don’t have elastic, they pull up easily. The huge handwarmer ...

North Cape Idaho

£50.00

This midweight women’s fleece  from North Cape is impressively cosy, but the strip of fabric inside the collar is irritatingly itchy. It has a lovely high collar, though, and I the roomy, contoured fit and soft elasticated cuffs are fine too. Made from a very stretchy fabric and exceptionally warm, partly due to a windproof lining at the front, it’s ...

The North Face TKA 200 Full Zip

£50.00

This midweight fleece from The North Face is wonderfully soft and comfortable and a pretty good fit, although the collar is a little tight. The lightweight fabric and feminine design are great, but thicker cuffs would be good. Not as warm as some. The wind flap under the front zip is good, and the handwarmer pockets are nice and deep. ...

Rohan Furnace

£50.00

A warm but bulky jacket, made from a fairly heavyweight fleece fabric. The fit is generous – long in the arms and at the hem – but the chunky cuffs are stretchy, and easy to pull up if things do get a bit warm. The hip pockets, which are protected by zippers, are also mesh-lined so can also be used ...

Sprayway Savannah Pro

£50.00

This midweight fleece from Sprayway is long, with a fairly narrow chest and shoulders. The arms are also short and the windproof panels feel cool against the skin. In its favour, the high collar is lovely and snug. Heavier and bulkier than some, but keeps you pretty warm despite the poor fit. The windproof lining at the front is a ...

Merrell Summit

£50.00

This midweight fleece from Merrell is rather big and baggy and, although the Lycra cuffs and high, warm collar are good, it’s disappointed that there is no hem adjustment. A lighter fleece than most with a thinner fabric, so not as warm as some. It offers good wind-resistance, though, so works well as an outer-layer. Decent pockets, too, with a ...

Wynnster Glacier

£50.00

This windproof fleece from Wynnster is not a great fit, with a long, loose body and no drawcord at the hem. The arms are a reasonable length, but the collar is too low and the lining feels scratchy against the skin. The length and weight of this fleece makes it uncomfortable for energetic walking, but the Cirrus 200 fabric keeps ...

Jack Wolfskin Vertigo

£55.00

This midweight fleece from Jack Wolfskin has odd sizing, so take care when choosing. The collar is snug and high and the drawcord hem just the ticket. Very warm, with the Nanuk 200 fabric providing plenty of insulation as a mid-layer. It is easy to move around in and has a great choice of pockets, although, sadly, none for a ...

Lowe Alpine Eclipse Jacket

£60.00

This midweight fleece from Lowe Alpine boasts good length arms and a high and snug-fitting collar. The fabric feels wonderfully luxurious. Elasticated cuffs would be better than plain fleece, but it’s warm and cosy, and light and compact enough to carry in a rucksack. The handwarmer pockets are well positioned and there’s room for a map.
