“This is an unashamedly technical fleece and has lots great features. In a supersize world it is great to wear a garment that is such a snug fit, easy to get things off your harness and pockets that won’t get buried beneath it. It has decent length arms with thumbloops and integral hood that fits well under a helmet. The fabric is tough and relatively windproof and I haven’t managed to trash it cragging yet. One disadvantage is that on a more comfortable figure it may be a little tight on the body. It also isn’t that light but its features and versatility more than makes up for that.”
