Fleeces have become an essential piece of clothing for many fishermen, I wear them all the time. In differing thicknesses, worn under a waterproof shell or on their own as an outer layer, they are a very useful garment.
Vision Thermal Pro Jacket
Snowbee Fleece Jacket or Pullover
We all know that the most effective way of keeping warm is using the ‘layering system’, whereby thin ‘layers’ are built up, trapping a layer of air between each garment. However, this is not always possible with a thick fleece, which is simply too bulky for comfort. Our new range of Fleece Jackets and Pullovers are therefore constructed in a soft,
240g polyester fleece which is warm enough to wear as an outer layer on chilly days, but thin enough to use as a mid layer on cold days.
The jacket has a full length front zip with two side pockets and a vertical chest pocket, while the pullover has a ¼ zip neck and 2 side pockets. As versatile as a sweater and offering sensational value for money, these garments are sure to become a favourite in your wardrobe.
Snowbee Fleece Pullover – Sage Green
Snowbee ‘Breeze-Bloc’ Technical Fleece – Sage Green
A truly ‘technical’ fleece offering outstanding warmth and ‘Wind-stop’ qualities. No fleece can be 100% ‘windproof’ and ‘waterproof’, due to the stitched seams, but this is as close as it gets. Over the past two years, they have received numerous testimonials from happy customers, who have been caught out in extreme conditions, yet remained totally warm and dry. This ultra-thin, ultra-lightweight, totally windproof fleece can be worn either as an outer garment, or as a mid layer under any other waterproof and serve to keep you really warm and dry in virtually any conditions.
