Oh-so-soft fleece and a neat fit add up to a top-quality mid-layer jacket for women
One touch of the innovative Berghaus Parione fleece hooded jacket and I fell in love. The soft, silky feel of the Polartec Micro fleece melted my heart and prompted me to pull the jacket on.
And once the fleece mid-layer jacket was on, I wondered a) Why I had never owned something so instantly comfortable before and b) Whether I would ever be able to take it off again.
The jacket design is fitted and has the additional benefits of thumb loop cuffs in a stretchy material and a snug hood. The fleece layer is designed for those who enjoy being active outdoors and it feels like a second skin – and should fit just as neatly.Â If you need to wear a hooded waterproof or a helmet, the Parione stretch hood will fit comfortably underneath.
Other great features include:
- Underarm stretch fabric panels for an even better fit for active people
- Two zipped hand-warmer pockets
- One zipped sleeve pocket for stowing small essentials
This fleece is ideal for cool summer days, when you can wear it as an outer layer, or cold winter days, when it serves as a superb mid-layer. I have been wearing it around the house, for walking, running, snowboarding and pretty much every kind of activity this winter.
