    Product feature
    1. Fleece material: Insulates using the air
      The fleece component is designed to trap the air thanks to the volume created by its texture; this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm. It is the brushing of the knit fabric that traps the air.
    2. Durability
      Keeping control of the pilling is what guarantees the garment's thermal insulation over time. This fleece has the benefit of "ceramic" treatment in order to delay and reduce pilling.
    3. Technical stretch fleece material:
      The insulating power and breathability of fleece coupled with the freedom of movement offered by elastane. The stretch additionally provides more durable dimensional stability which limits air movement between the body and clothing, and provides an air layer providing thermal insulation. This material is therefore recommended for garments designed for intensive sports/outdoor activities.

    • Great walking jacket

      Stephen (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Fantastic for pottering about the hills ,warm ,light and a hood for the showers ,ideal item at a fantastic price.
    • Excellent fleece

      MIke (United Kingdom)
      Used for 7 to 12 months
      I have 3 of these and they are really good for running and mountain biking, I would order a size bigger than you are used to though as they are really fitted.
    • Good Hiking Fleece

      Faram (India)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      I wore this jacket while hiking, above 10,000 feet in the Himalayas in late autumn/early winter. Minimum temperature was -5C.

      I found it excellent while hiking as it's light, breathable and retains heat while damp. It's not suitable for camp as it's not warm enough when the body is at rest.

      It could be made even better if it had simple non-zippered hand-warmer side pockets. It wouldn't add much to the weight (I assume) and would be useful for short breaks while hiking, when donning gloves would be overkill.

      Paul (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Bought this top in august, but in the blue colour, very good top for hiking. Warm without weight and a very good fit. Wore this walking up wansfell pike on Sunday (18/09/16) and unfortunately it's started to pill around the waist and back, especially where it's in contact with my rucksack. The product description also states that it won't crease, again my jacket now has crease marks around the waist where it was folded into my rucksack. I would recommend this top to anyone looking for a warm lightweight jacket on the premise it's not worn with anything that may rub against it.
