How to Choose a Fleece Jacket

A 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 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.
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.

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. Shop Slim Fit Fleece Jackets Shop Regular Fit Fleece Jacket

How to Buy an Alpine Touring Boot

Free Your Feet From the Resort

Traditionally, a ski boot was designed for going downhill with as much speed and power as possible, with little thought to the comfort when going uphill. With an aggressive sole material like Vibram, lightweight shell material, and the now-standard lever to switch between walk and ski modes (to free the cuff to rotate or lock it in place), the alpine touring boot changed everything. This is the boot to take into the backcountry.

Binding Compatibility:

An alpine touring boot is either compatible with a standard alpine ski binding (DIN normalized binding), a TECH binding, or both. There’s little difference between the boots except for the extra heel and toe fittings required for a boot to be TECH compatible.

Flex Rating:

A stiff boot will have a high flex rating (120-130+), while a softer boot will have a lower flex rating (100-110). Stiffness benefits you during the descent, but it might cause you pain on the skin track—consider whether you prefer superior comfort or performance.


A carbon cuff or tongue, lightweight plastic shell, minimalist buckle design, or honeycomb structure help reduce the weight of an AT boot so you can move faster and feel less fatigued during a long tour.
