A Perfect Midlayer
This fleece blew me away. It is by no means windproof, but functions very well as a midlayer under a shell. And the range of temps at which you stay comfy is what blows me away. From cool fall weather hikes down to about 10F skiing (capilene 3 and a shell), it handles it all. The neck comes up high and the hood is thin enough to wear under a helmet. Super light, durable, wicks moisture away and the thumbholes work great keeping it in place and keeping the snow out.
