A flexible midlayer for any mountain endeavor.
Your equipment may change with the seasons when winter puts you on a pair of skis, spring sends you to the desert climbing spots, and summer takes you to the high country hiking, but the one thing that will find its way onto your gear list no matter the season will be the Norrona Women's Bitihorn Powerstretch Zip-Hood Fleece Jacket. This versatile midlayer is made with a flexible fleece fabric that keeps you mobile when you're wearing it on its own or layered under a shell. An attached hood helps retain heat when you're hunkered down on a cold night, while wrist gaskets with thumbholes ensure the sleeves stay down when worn under a shell.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: L
I try a Norrona size Large every once-in-a-while hoping to find a cut that might fit. This fit my shoulders great, but not so good in my hips which run a size larger than my shoulders, so no dice. I would try an XL if it were available.
Overall quality seemed great and really nice attention to detail with the unobtrusive zipper pockets. Would be a nice mid-layer in the winter, or a great long sleeve layer in the fall.
