This windproof fleece from Vaude is a good fit in the body, but the sleeves are a little loose and the cuffs could do with some elastic. The collar is a decent height and feels cosy around the neck. The Lombok provides a little less insulation than some, but it’s still a warm jacket and it certainly keeps the wind at bay – its main job. It has less venting than the best.
Colours: Steel blue, hibiscuss, black
Fabric: Pontetorto Windproof 100
Women’s version: Shadow

Verdict: A lightweight and very compact windproof fleece that feels almost like a windshirt compared to some. Would want to see better cuffs for the money.
