Arc'teryxFortrez Fleece Jacket - Men's

Your fortress from the cold.

You'll love the Arc'teryx Men's Fortrez Fleece Jacket's stretchy warmth whether you're climbing up mountains or skiing down them. Polartec's Power Stretch fleece gives this jacket plenty of breathability, comfortable softness, and a four-way stretch for uninhibited mobility. Hardface technology reinforces the smooth exterior with abrasion-resistance and water-shedding protection. A gusseted construction uses articulated underarms and sleeves for a true freedom of movement.

I love this piece, it is a perfect mid-layer jacket.
I use it under my jacket in the rain,
I use it under my jacket in the snow,
and when the sun comes out, I wear it as a stand-alone.
The zippers are nice,
the Polartec Power Stretch is nicer (soft and durable)
This is a good one for ski touring, tailgating, rock climbing, or anything in between.

Perfect for the backcountry!

Great lightweight insulation that moves and breathes with you. I wear this touring mostly. Fits true to size and durable. Couldn't ask for a better fleece.

Mid Layer Lovin'

I use this as a mid layer during winter backpacking, ice climbing, snowshoeing, and as a standalone on 50 degree days when I go climbing.
This jacket is great. It stretches, twists, and forms to my body's movements perfectly. It's the perfect mid layer for climbing and other high output activities in the cold for this reason.
I will say that this is in no way water resistant. It's not advertised as such, but I just figured I'd throw that in there. If a drop of rain hits your shoulder you will feel your undershirt get wet.
I wear a medium. I'm 5'11" and weigh 195 pounds and have an athletic build.
