I love getting to camp and pulling on something cozy. For a long time that meant my cotton hoody or fleece, but when I'd hike around camp I would get hot and have to take it off... only to put it on again a few minutes later. This piece is perfect because it breaths, stretches, and resists a light drizzle all while maintaining that cozy fleecy feel.
