I’ve had my The North Face Glacier fleece for the past 6 weeks, and during that time I’ve been on 3 camping trips, spent a weekend out walking and sightseeing in Cornwall as well as a weekend glamping in Oxfordshire. The fleece has come with me every single trip and it’s proven itself to be highly versatile. Because it’s so light and packs down to such a small size, it’s also ideal for carrying in my backpack as an extra layer whilst out walking should I need it.
The 100 Glacier Fleece is new for Spring/Summer 2017 and I love the fit and the colour of it. I think the only thing that could improve the fleece for me, would be slightly longer sleeves to accommodate thumb holes.
As well as wearing it out and about on our most recent camping trip over Easter weekend, I ended up putting it on to wear as an extra layer in bed as it was so cold at night.
Considering how thin it is, it’s exceptionally warm. The Glacier Polartec® fleece offers warmth and breathability and it’s proved itself to be the perfect mid-layer in countless different situations.
Priced £43.50 at Simply Hike, I think this is a great value buy for anyone who spends time outdoors.
Thank you to Simply Hike for providing the fleece for us to feature.
