Unlike wool directly taken from sheep, fleece which is more mentioned now, refers to synthetic chemical fiber clothing fabric, which comes from polyester. This synthetic method will also be more ethical than taking wool directly from animals. Among them, because of the different processing methods and materials, different kinds and functions of fleece will be synthesized, such as grid fleece, Micro Fleece and so on. It is usually divided into Single-layer Fleece and Fleece bonded Fleece. The common single-layer fleece has no windproof function, while the bonded fleece has good windproof performance, and can be waterproof of 10000MM and breathable of 3000MM-8000MM.

Therefore, when people choose the fleece jacket they want, they often buy it according to their functional needs. Most of the fleece jackets commonly used outdoors can achieve multiple functions, combining the functions of warmth preservation, wind protection, light weight, quick drying and so on.

Adantages of Fleece

Keep warm / Windproof
The warmth of a fleece jacket depends on the weight and thickness of the fleece. The thicker the fleece, the more fluffy it is, which means there will be more space in the fabric to store heat and prevent wind. Even in the wet rainy season, the quick drying feature of fleece can keep the jacket dry again, store heat and prevent the wind. However, please note that the warmth preservation function of fleece is limited. It is more suitable for the climate environment in spring and autumn and the indoor environment in winter. If you want to choose winter clothes, we will recommend you a 3-in-1 outdoor softshell jacket.

The space between the fleece can play a good role in breathability. This can help travelers get rid of water vapor and keep dry at any time even if they sweat during strenuous activities.

Compared with winter Jacket, fleece is lighter and warmer. The average weight of a fleece is 6 to 12 OZ per square meter.


On the one hand, fleece is composed of water repellent fibers, which leads to the fact that the fleece fabric itself also has drainage, which can evaporate the water on the jacket faster; On the other hand, fleece doesn't absorb too much water. When the water comes into contact with it, the water will slide over the surface rather than immerse in the jacket. The advantage of quick drying of fleece jacket also helps many outdoor travelers complete wonderful journeys.
