Descender LS Zip Jacket

Everyone needs a go-to fleece. You know, the one you reach for almost every day during the winter because it pairs perfectly with your baselayer and shell. If your current midlayer isn't cutting it, reach for the Icebreaker Men's Descender Fleece Jacket. This slim, efficient layer blends mid-weight merino wool fibers with synthetic ones to create highly adaptable fabric, able to insulate on days when the wind is relentless but still breathe to keep you dry when you're on the skintrack or hiking the last push to the summit.

The Descender makes a soft, temperature-regulating layer under a shell when you're skiing or snowboarding, but its hand pockets and internal storm flap equip it to be used as an outer layer as well. Grab it when you're lacing up your trail running shoes for a snowy run or when you're getting ready for a few fast laps around the skate skiing trails; its thoughtful construction warms you up when you get to the trailhead and keeps you dry when you start to sweat.

I might be wearing this every day this winter. The merino fleece interior is soft and breathable and can be worn for nearly a week without getting dirty. The fit is slim and looks great.

I bought this in Stealth/Oxblood to use as both a mid-layer and as a lightweight outer piece for casual wear. The close up picture above (the one centered on the chest pocket) makes the fabric appear a bit shiny, as if it has a slight hard fleece type finish. This is not the case. It's a wool finish that seems like it could 'fuzz up' with use and possibly won't stand up to abrasion well- see pic. I'm returning it for that reason only. Otherwise I think it would make a great midlayer. It appears well made, fit is true to size, perhaps a tad on the long size. I'm 5'10", so if you're taller it would probably be perfect.
