U.S. Military ECWCS Gen II Brown Bear Jacket

I bought one of these a couple of years ago, not pretty but I did not buy it for that. I use it on the range by itself or under a shell. Brilliant. I am very much a layer person and this fits right in. Just recently got a Gen II ECWCS shell parka for $60, who could complain at a price like that for Goretex etc, as compared to other shell products at a couple of hundred more. It is winter here, sitting in my office and what am I wearing but this bear jacket. Great product, not pretty, but who cares. Full review

Rab Men's Nexus Pull-On

The Rab Nexus Pull-On fleece jacket is a comfortable, light, and warm mid-layer that breathes well and has an adjustable deep chest zip. Minor complaints include some pilling after 18 months of use, and a little floppiness in the collar. Rab is not as prevalent in the U.S. but I found this in a large coop online shop when searching for a lighter mid-layer. Previous fleece options for me were too bulky to pack along with a puffy, but now I can take both on cold weather trips as the Rab Nexus Pull-on… Full review

Montane Alpha Balance Jacket

A mix of a lightweight, hardwearing, stretch fleece and breathable wind resistant Polartec Alpha Direct. The placement of the Alpha fabric makes it perfect for use with a backpack. Fabric Performance This jacket is the perfect companion for a backpack trek/hike. The Polartec Alpha Direct fabric provides some weather and abrasion protection for the most exposed areas. The surface fabric covering the Alpha insulation has some PU mixed into it, which seems to add some durable water repellency. The… Full review

Helly Hansen Women's Daybreaker Fleece Jacket

High quality fleece that fits like a glove and does exactly what you want it to. It also clings to fuzz, dog fur, and scent. This is a high-quality fleece from HH, and although it's a basic piece it does exactly what you want it to. It's thin yet warm, layers great over a base layer and under another insulating layer, and dries quickly. I've used it for a full skiing season as a mid-weight base layer and around town on wet, 40-60 degree days under a shell. It fits like a glove and has a quality… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Monkey Man Jacket

Most comfy fleece jacket I own! If you are looking for the ultimate fleece jacket look no further. The fabric is so comfy I now wear it all the time! I'm 6 foot tall and the only problem is the arm length, but they have a thumb hole to have them well in place and keep your lower hands warm when needed.  Full review

Macpac Pisa Polartec Alpha Fleece Jacket

Most importantly, it fits me well and feels good against my skin. Winter base layer or lightweight midlayer I have recommended friends have a look and try this garment out. For the first time in an absolute age I have something from the iconic kiwi brand that actually fits and performs as the blurb says. I just bought a Pisa Polartec Alpha Fleece Jacket top on clearance just to see what they are like. The Pisa Polartec Hooded Jacket is a new product at a similar cost. First things first, it… Full review

Patagonia Women's Better Sweater Jacket

Great jacket for hiking and daily wear. Perfect for chilly fall weather. I love this jacket and wear it often. It is perfect for layering for hiking. I got a large, so there is plenty of room for clothes underneath (I usually get a medium). Fit is nice—not too tight in arms, etc. Very comfortable for everyday use. I also like the pockets.

Jack Wolfskin Gravity Trail Jacket

Lightweight hybrid jacket—part fleece, part softshell for wind resistance. Intended for runners and cyclists, but also useful for walkers. The Gravity Trail fleece jacket by German company Jack Wolfskin caught my eye for two reasons. First, it has elevated, rucksack-compatible pockets. Elevated pockets are a common feature on rainjackets and softshells, but very rare on fleeces for some reason. Second, the front of the Gravity Trail is made of what Jack Wolfskin claims to be windproof material. Full review
