Fleece Guide

Don’t underestimate the power of the fleece as an essential layer in the cold. Fleece is excellent at trapping much-needed body heat whilst remaining dry and breathable. There are multiple fabrics and technologies that go into making a First Ascent Fleece - lightweight fleece jackets are great for cool evenings, while thicker fleece jackets can be suitable for colder weather. Explore the ideal fleece for your next great adventure!
