I have owned and used many fleece jackets, technical and not, and the Partial Eclipse is by far the best one. I have had the Partial Eclipse since Spring 1999 and it is still going strong in 2004.

Fabric: Fleece/ capilene (PEF)
Price Paid: $189

This technical fleece jacket excels where other fleece articles have failed. Excellent wind resistance--however, if mountain biking in windy areas I'll add an outer layer.

The jacket is fits me like a wetsuit and is the perfect piece of clothing for performance activities. Love it!
