How to Choose a Fleece Jacket

 

 

Fleece is a synthetic material that feels lightweight, breathes well, and feels warm even if it gets wet. This combination of traits makes a fleece jacket ideal as either a mid-layer or a primary layer for a wide range of activities.

Fleece Weight:

Fleece jackets come in a variety of numerical and relative weights. The higher the fleece weight, the warmer the fleece will feel. Ideally, you want a fleece that feels just warm enough for standing around but not so warm that it’ll leave you sweating when you’re skiing, snowboarding, climbing, or hiking.

Fit:

For casual wear, almost any fleece will work as long as it feels comfortable and fits your style. For technical activities, look for a slim or athletic fit so you can wear it as a mid-layer. This will ensure that your fleece doesn’t feel too baggy beneath a shell jacket.

Weather Resistance:

A fleece with a windproof membrane is more versatile and allows you to wear it as your primary (outer) layer in cold, windy weather. However, this will also compromise breathability for highly aerobic activities.
