How to Choose a Fleece Jacket



Fleece is a synthetic material that feels lightweight, breathes extremely well, and will still keep you warm even if it gets wet. This combination of traits makes a fleece jacket great for a wide range of activities, and an ideal mid-layer under a shell.

Fleece Weight:

Polyester fleece comes in a variety of numerical and relative weights. The higher the fleece weight the warmer the fleece will feel. A 100-weight microfleece pullover can serve as a thin mid-layer or even a baselayer, while a 300-weight fleece jacket makes an excellent mid-layer on really cold days or an outer layer on days that aren't too windy.

Weather Resistance:

While fleece can be quite warm, it usually doesn't offer much protection against the wind. Some fleece jackets feature a windproof membrane that makes them more versatile and better for use as a primary (outer) layer in cold, windy weather. However, this will also compromise breathability for highly aerobic activities. Many fleece jackets now feature a smooth knit face on the outside that's a touch more weather-resistant than traditional fleece, but just as breathable.
