This windproof fleece from Craghoppers has baggy sleeves and cuffs and a high but loose collar. The fleece is lovely and soft, though, and the lining feels really good against the skin. As well as being windproof, the Aquadry is waterproof with fully taped seams. This makes it less breathable than most and also much warmer. It’s very heavy, too.
Colours: Chilli red/black, dark navy/black, bark/black

Verdict: A bomb-proof windproof and waterproof fleece that’s best-suited to shorter, less strenuous walks on cold or damp days, or even casual use. Too heavy and bulky to carry in a pack.
