This lightweight fleece from Karrimor is a fairly loose fit, but still very comfortable. It’s perhaps a little bulky for a base-layer, but makes a great mid-layer, especially as it has a very high, rather loose collar. The stretchy polyester microfleece fabric offers a reasonable amount of warmth and the zip-neck is a good length. The Lycra cuffs are also easy to pull up, but the collar could be a snugger fit.
Verdict: A good-looking and warm fleece that makes a superb mid-layer, but it would need to be a tighter fit to work effectively next to your skin.
