This windproof fleece from Outdoor Scene is nice to wear, with a lovely soft fabric, high collar and stretchy fleece cuffs. A drawcord hem traps heat well. It’s rather heavy and bulky, but does a good job of keeping the wind out. Breathability is also pretty good. Quite low handwarmer pockets – not ideal with a rucksack on – but the insides are a good size.
Verdict: A good windproof fleece with a soft, cosy feel at a very good price. However, it’s very heavy and quite bulky to carry in a rucksack. Check the fit too.
