This fleece mid layer weighs 504g (size L); thick, hard-wearing fleece compared to some; two zipped hip pockets; zip chest pocket; warm and very breathable fleece. But a little more bulky than some; hip pocket access easily obscured by rucksack belts; is not particularly highly featured for absolute practical performance; no hood.

Verdict: Buy it if you want a general-purpose fleece that keeps you warm, rather than boasting practical features.
