Where To Buy Fleece Jacket [VERIFIED]



With a wide variety of insulated jackets on the market, the classic fleece still is the most comfortable and affordable. These polyester jackets have been providing cozy warmth for years from campsites and ski resorts to the streets and restaurants of mountain towns. Fleeces run the gamut from casual to breathable performance pieces for serious adventures. Below are our picks for the best fleece jackets of 2023, with options from leading outdoor brands across a range of price points. For more background, see our fleece jacket comparison table and buying advice below the picks.

A softshell or synthetic-insulated jacket is a common choice for aerobic activities in cool weather, but performance fleeces are on the rise. In this category, the Patagonia R2 TechFace Hoody is a phenomenal piece of gear and performs as an excellent outer layer for backcountry skiing, ice climbing, and other winter pursuits. Like most fleeces, the R2 TechFace breathes well, but it goes the extra mile with a tough and weather-resistant face fabric and 3-way adjustable hood with a laminated brim for standalone use in inclement conditions. When a hardshell is too much jacket but you still need some amount of protection, the R2 TechFace is a solid bet.


Lightweight performance fleeces are a growing trend, and we like what Outdoor Research has come up with in the Vigor Full Zip. This trim-fitting midlayer slips nicely over a thin merino long-sleeve and provides a great combination of stretch, breathability, and modest warmth. In terms of construction, OR uses a hybrid concept with a thicker polyester/spandex mix along the arms and upper chest, while the lower body and back have a thin, grid-style fleece that is soft, wicks moisture, and helps keep you cool. For anything from running in frigid temps to backcountry skiing, the Vigor is a great layer to have in your quiver.


U.K.-based Rab makes some of our favorite down jackets and hardshells for demanding backcountry use, so it comes as little surprise that their fleece jackets are impressively well built and competitive. From their collection, the new Capacitor is a high-performance pick that offers a modern take on the classic midweight design. Like the much-loved (but now discontinued) Patagonia R2, this jacket features 200-weight fleece, stretchy side panels for added mobility and venting, and a flattering shape. Tack on a low-profile brushed finish and trim-fitting hood that slides easily underneath a climbing helmet, and the result is a decently warm yet breathable performance piece built for action.


The majority of people wear fleece jackets for their unbeatable combination of coziness and warmth. They are terrific for layering on chilly evenings, wearing around the cabin, and underneath your ski jacket. Accordingly, most fleeces trend toward being casual in nature, from hard-weave cardigan-style jackets that dress up nicely to basic fleeces that are little more than the fabric itself. Casual fleeces make up the majority of our list, although we do want to reiterate that they still are great for layering.


Most of the jackets toward the top of this list are of the full-zip variety, which gives you maximum versatility and are easy to slip on and off. Full-zip models tend to have more features like hand pockets and stretchy side panels, whereas pullovers are more basic and function like a sweatshirt (albeit a very comfy one). The upside of fleece pullovers is that they weigh slightly less, pack down smaller, and generally are cheaper. The Patagonia Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T is an extremely popular fleece pullover that in many ways defines the category.


We recommend choosing your typical size. If between sizes, see guidance from perceived fit from below. The jacket has an oversized design, so if you want the garment to be more fitted, consider choosing a smaller size than your typical size


Love The Minna jacket to the moon and back! So warm yet breathable. If toi want it to be windproof, just wear a shell jacket also. It is a loose fit, If you want it to be more fitted, order one smaller? Very relaxed jacket. I already got many compliments when wearing it.


A top of the line look that is comfortable and slimming, perfect piece for any lifestyle. This is a fleece piece that will keep you warm for an office coffee runs. Muted colors and stylish colors, the lightweight fabric moves with your body. The Cambria is a great choice.


Warm, silent and comfortable the Trekker fleece is great for cool weather hunts, layering or casual wear. The 300 gram fleece is soft and ooh so cozy. This jacket is is uninsulated and non-waterproof so it can be worn in a variety of conditions. Attached hood with slash style handwarmer pocket along with a full zip front.


The Hunter Series Wind-Defender Fleece Jacket is an all-around hunting jacket built for protection against wind and moisture. Get the benefit of a soft, quiet, quick-dry fleece combined with impressive protection from the elements.


Very well made jacket allows perfect movement in the arms for bow hunting and extremely quiet. It is my new go-to jacket. I throw a sweatshirt on under and stay warm for days - exactly what I wanted and then some and the price is perfect.


The quintessential fleece jacket, Patagonia's deep-pile fabric is a favorite. The brand has gone through numerous fleece iterations including Synchilla and Woolyester, but deep-pile was revived for a reason. It's cozy as hell and looks great. The all-polyester fabric uses 50-percent recycled yarns and is wind-proof and super warm. Zippered hand pockets keep your belongings on your person while DWR-coated polyester paneling and storm-plackets and elastic hems and cuffs keep the weather at bay.


Made from 100-percent polyester, deep-pile fleece, Line of Trade's Arctic Jacket is an incredible value for its price. It's substantial enough to serve as a standalone jacket during the tail end of winter, but light enough to survive those first few (sweltering) days of spring. Sadly, though, it's crafted entirely from man-made materials. You should definitely bag this one if you wash it.


Topo Designs transforms your stereotypical fleece jacket into a 2-in-1 coat with a quilted side. The jacket's entirely reversible, meaning you can wear the fleece side out when it's super chilly and the fleece side in whenever it's wet or rainy out. The fleece itself is DWR treated, though, so it'd survive some wetness if it came on unexpectedly.


It's no question that most fleece jackets are planted firmly in the outerwear realm. Pioneered by Patagonia, the style remains mostly outdoors to this day, but there are modern brands pulling it closer to athletic and corporate settings as well. See: District Vision. Their Fleece Running Jacket is trim, lightweight and has a contrasting, high-vis waterproof pocket.


This handsome jacket comes from another storied outdoors brand, albeit one that's steeped in logging rather than tree-hugging. It features a high-pile fleece courtesy of Polartec that's actually a touch heavier than Patagonia's Retro-X. That said, it's still breathable and won't suffocate your skin. Other details include nylon reinforcements, as well as ribbed hems and cuffs.


This muted fleece from Columbia has a cool checkered pattern, plus a deep-pile exterior that rivals the best in terms of coziness. The inside's lined with micro-fleece, too, so there's softness on both the inside and out. You can choose from three versions of this pattern, too: green (seen here), black and traditional Buffalo plaid (red).


Fleece jackets, in my opinion, should be one or the other: super simple or overt and extreme. I don't love some of Patagonia's fleeces (Retro-X aside) because they live in this sort of middle ground. Sonder Supplies is definitely the former, but fittingly so. The entire thing is tonal: green fleece, green hardware, green plackets and a green logo.


Battenwear makes what they call a Warm-Up Fleece, which is an oversized jacket with a plush polyester body, zipper pockets, an envelope-style chest pocket and both ribbed cuffs and a ribbed hem. It's soft, made in the US and it comes in several colors.

A threshold value of 0 will make transparent all pixels with RGB values where the R; G; and B components are all exactly 255; i.e.; only white pixels will be transparent. On the other hand; a non-zero value; say N; will make transparent all pixels with RGB values where the R; G; and B components have values from (255-N) to 255; i.e.; white as well as 'near' white pixels will be transparent.


It's a nice jacket but the sizing is way off of every other Sitka piece I own. I wear XL in everything Sitka and most of it is a little too big, but Large is just a little too small. I ordered this jacket in XL and it's way too small...I would definitely need a XXL for it to be comfortable. So, I go from almost a Large in everything else, to needing a XXL in this jacket. The worst part is that the sizing is that far off, and then I get stuck paying return shipping on it. 041b061a72
