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 also fairly lightweight, the cuffs roll up easily and you can adjust the hem.
Verdict: The Idaho is a good quality fleece at a very fair price. The cut is superb and the fabric lovely and soft. The only niggle is the scratchy fabric inside the collar.
