This midweight fleece from Lowe Alpine is a good fit in the body, but loses marks for the loose collar. Good stretchy fleece cuffs and a drawcord hem. An excellent midweight fleece that performs well as a mid and outer-layer. Decent pockets and looks good, too.

Verdict: An excellent mid-layer, cut from a wonderful fabric, that does everything asked of it on the hill and looks good enough to wear casually.
