A super-soft and warm fleece that fits like a glove. It has got a lovely high, thick collar that traps lots of warm air and feels great to bury your face into; and elastic cord on the hem to fine-tune the fit. The soft elastic cuffs pull up easily, and it has two decent-sized zipped pockets. It’s made from recycled Polartec fleece that’s been treated with DWR to repel water and keep you dry, so it performs brilliantly as an outer layer as well as a very warm mid-layer under a shell. It also packs down well for storage. A classic tried and trusted design that will last for years, although as with all fleece fabric, it will start to pill eventually.
