How to Choose a Fleece JacketA fleece jacket is made of a synthetic that feels lightweight, breathes well, and feels warm even if it gets wet. It’s easy to care for and usually more affordable than wool or comparative down-insulated jackets. Use a fleece as a mid-layer or a primary layer when you’re skiing, snowboard, hiking, or camping in cold, dry weather.
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.
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.
