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.
Colours: Eight including tapas red, windflower orange, jewel blue, white, black

Verdict: A fairly priced fleece that looks as good on the street as it does in the hills. The North Face’s own TKA fabric is very lightweight, but not as warm as some.
