Well-made top from Craghoppers with the Bear Grylls "endorsement". Shipped from Great Britain which is a hassle.

A nice fleece from Columbia. Seems to be like many others they sell. Do they just give them new names?

Heavier weight fleece that is best worn as outer layer over a base. It would be VERY warm underneath another layer.

One of the nicest fleece pieces around. Just right for cooler days over a baselayer. Works well under a shell on cold days.

Patagonia Stretch Velocity Full-Zip Fleece

Polartec Power Dry is fast-wicking and provides next-to-skin comfort. The smooth face glides under layers, while the internally brushed surface wicks moisture to help keep you dry and warm.

Not a shirt. Not a jacket. This pullover has a "nubby" weave that traps air to insulate. Prana style.
