Fleece jackets have long been a staple of the outdoors fan 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 base layer shirt or breathable t-shirt and under your rain jacket as part of an outdoor layering system. The men's fleece jackets, half zip fleeces and hooded fleeces of today 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 fleeces offer a combination of warmth, packability and protection in various weights. From the high-end technical fleeces through to more casually-styled jackets, all our mid-layers are suited to regular use in the outdoors. 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.
