Model: Upslope Full-Zip Fleece Hoody

It feels like a comfy sweatshirt, yet this hooded jacket is made of moisture-wicking R1 fleece, which impressed testers in conditions where you need “just a little extra something at night.” But it’s much more than a warm-weather camp coat. Thanks to its gridded interior, “It’s also less bulky, warmer, and more breathable than most fleeces of comparable weight and price,” says one tester, “so I can wear it year-round.”
