From cool mornings when the mist hangs low over the lake to dusky evening hikes, keep The North Face Men's Borod 1/4-Zip Fleece Jacket close for a lightweight barrier from the elements. It uses a smooth fleece with a gridded backer to deliver warmth and breathability whether you're camping or need an extra layer for chilly days in the office. The quarter-zip design makes it easy to get the pullover on and off, and it provides customized ventilation to keep you comfortable.

I realize that this piece is designed for men, but as a 6'1" female who isn't exactly petite, it's a relief to find something that fits my frame.
I tend to run on the cold side, so opted for this 200 weight fleece. The long zip made putting in on/taking it off very easy, even with a cap on, as well as venting when I got too warm hiking above 10,000 feet. This was my first time using the waffle pattern insulation/breathing design, and found it sufficient. I recommend this as a light layer.
(I purchased the hyper blue color, and found it to be delightful.)
