This midweight fleece from Berghaus is a touch too big and the fleece cuffs too baggy. The collar is perfect, though, and the drawcord hem does a good job of sealing warmth in. Cut from a lovely, soft, recycled Polartec Thermal Pro fabric, the Activity is a warm and cosy fleece that performs well both as a mid and top-layer. It has good pockets, too, including one for a map.
Colours: Rio red, dark charcoal, rifle, tarmac, black

Verdict: A classy fleece with sound environmental credentials that will serve your walking needs well. However, it’s let down by baggy cuffs and the rather odd sizing.
