Fleece jackets have long been a staple of the outdoor enthusiast and more serious mountaineer alike. Since the fleece jackets' conception in the 1970s, the fabrics and design have evolved significantly. Fleeces are traditionally classed as a mid-layer garment to be worn over a baselayer top or wicking t-shirt and under your waterproof coat as part of an outdoor layering system.
Today, women's fleece tops are advanced and are essential for a wide variety of mountain activities as well as being suitable for more casual use. Using a variety of technical fabrics, the men's range of Rab® fleece jackets and half-zip pullovers offer a combination of warmth, packability and protection in various weights. From the top-end technical pieces through to more casually-styled jackets, all our midlayers are suited to regular use on the hills. Rab® has long been a technical partner of Polartec® and their lightweight, premium fleece fabrics are used extensively in our current collection. In addition to Polartec® we have sourced an alternative range of fleece fabrics to increase the variety of garments available in our range.
