Lowe Alpine Manali Zipneck

A little tight and rather short at the hem, too. The collar was snug and high, though, and the fleece cuffs fitted well enough with plenty of stretch in them when needed. The lightweight Aleutian fleece fabric proved lovely and stretchy and the neck zip is about the perfect length, but didn’t provide as much insulation as some.
A lot of money, too.

A very light fleece that feels great against the skin and is probably better suited to use as a winter base-layer than a warmer weather mid-layer.
