Stock up for the new season with a technical fleece
There’s no greater pleasure than spending time in the outdoors, and the fun shouldn’t stop once the mercury falls in the thermometer and summer draws to a close.
Whether you’re facing down an icy wind on deck, braving a cold weather mountain climb, hitting the slopes or simply hiking through the Great British countryside in the chill of winter, the right gear is everything. Without technical clothing to keep you warm and comfortable, you’ll never perform at your peak in such challenging conditions.
The MUSTO 3-Layer System has been developed to deliver flexible weather protection in all seasons. Each layer is essential, with the base layer providing comfort, temperature and moisture-regulating properties, the mid layer keeping you warm and the shell layer acting as your ultimate foul weather defence. You never know what the weather is going to do, so adopt the Boy Scout motto and ‘be prepared’. Making space in your day bag for a technical fleece is essential.
Why a technical fleece?
Fleeces have been a part of the outdoor wardrobe for generations. Wool, used in the first fleeces, is naturally insulating and quick drying, and retains its warmth well even when wet – making it ideal for use in foul weather. However, modern technology has meant that the fleece has evolved beyond its simple origins. Now, technical fabrics, advanced garment design and detailing designed specifically for the outdoor clothing market help you to maintain your core temperature and perform at your peak at all times.
Technical fleeces combine warm, comfortable polyester fleece with high-performance technical fabrics such as nylon and Lycra, as well as advanced technologies including Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coating and flatlock stitching. What this means is you get a warm, comfortable, quick-drying mid layer with additional stretch, water repellence, breathability and durability. You’re ready for any weather and any challenge.

Soft, warm and comfortable, the Deck Fleece Jacket is your go-to cold weather mid layer. The Tundra Zip Neck is also perfect for use as an outer layer on cool, dry days.

Layer this jacket under a shell jacket or wear it alone on warmer.
