Presenting Fleeces and Fleece Jackets from Mountainskin
Fleece is soft and durable, breathable and quick-drying synthetic fabric used in the outdoor industry for producing warm and versatile fleece tops, including jackets, hoodies, sweaters, and vests. Each manufacturer sells multiple types of fleece and often it can be hard to figure out the main characteristics of each fleece jacket and which one would work best for you. As we mentioned in our article about fleece and fleece jackets, some fleeces are meant to fit into a layered clothing system as a mid layer between a base layer top and an insulated jacket, while others can be used as an outer layer in cool and not so wet conditions. Though some fleece jackets are water-repellent and can withstand sporadic showers, you can’t rely on them to keep out continuous and/or heavy rain.
In our presentation, we've selected one representative of each type of fleece from Mountainskin. They will be graded according to their features all the way to the most intricate windproof and water-repellent fleece jacket.
