If you like the soft and cuddly look, this incredibly warm fleece jacket is the one for you. The windproof underarm soft shell panels are a bit of an odd feature, as this is normally where walkers want a bit of extra breathability, but they keep the wind out and they definitely look good. The style is nice and long, covering the hips to trap plenty of warm air; and the arms are a good length too, with elastic cuffs that pull up when needed. Having a hood adds great versatility, although it’s a little on the small side, and unfortunately the collar is too low to lock in warm air around your neck. Because of this, it is best worn with a high-necked base-layer.
