Ski Fleeces & Mid Layers
A good ski fleece or mid layer is an essential component of a 3 layer system when skiing or snowboarding, but also a great accompaniment for hill-walking and hiking. In fact, there isn’t much a good quality ski fleece isn’t good for.
When skiing or snowboarding a mid layer or fleece is to be worn between your base layer and ski jacket to provide moisture wicking properties and additional warmth. We have a selection of ski fleeces and mid layers for men, woman and kids from:

You may struggle to find a time when you don’t want to have your comfortable ski fleece or mid layer with you, no matter where you are.
So which fleece is right for you?
This is dependant entirely upon your budget and what you require from the fleece. There are a few things you may like to consider before making a purchase. Most fleeces provide great moisture wicking. This means that they draw moisture away from the skin so it can then evaporate. For this reason, they are ideal for use as mid-layers.
If you need a lightweight fleece for spring or summer that is quick drying, a micro-fleece is the way to go. Micro-fleeces are ideal for walking, hiking and cycling, or if you don’t feel the cold too much you may find that a micro-fleece is a suitable mid-layer for winter sports.
If you anticipate using the fleece while skiing or snowboarding, with the possibility of some cold ski-lift journeys you may prefer a more substantial fleece or mid layer that provides superior thermal insulation.
You may consider choosing a fleece that is made from anti-pilling / anti-bobbling fabric. These generally have better longevity than standard fleeces, and hold up better through the washing process.
We have a range of men’s, women’s and kids’ fleeces and mid-layers to suit all budgets and purposes, and all at great low prices.
