Craghoppers Risor Half-Zip (2012)

A fleece for walkers who don’t want to be seen in a fleece. Has the feel of a comfy pullover, but is still highly practical. The outer fabric feels a bit more like thick wool than fleece, which makes it a little more resilient to abrasion and resists the dreading pilling of the fabric over time. The inner fabric retains its fleecey softness, though, and is pleasant against the skin. Even the pockets are lined with fleece material on the inside to boost comfort levels. It sits somewhere in the middle in terms of weight and thickness, and as such offers good insulation. The pullover design helps to trap in more warmth too. The pockets are very comfy, and their zips are small and unobtrusive.
