Description:

Also available in custom sizes. We make clothing to order, so if you’re not a standard size we can make it to fit. To order a non-standard custom size, select the Custom Sizing tab and choose the body width and body length sizes that work for you. A custom size takes us a little longer (typically two weeks longer) to make and, because it’s personalized, it’s non-returnable and our customer loyalty scheme can’t be applied.


A wonderfully simple and lightweight fleece vest with superb wind and abrasion resistance. Warp-knit Taiga fleece is lighter and distinctly more windproof than conventional stretchy weft-knit fleeces.

Zipped handwarmer pockets, lycra hem and lycra armholes complete a comfortable and protective mountaineering layer.

Favoured by climbers and polar explorers, Taiga fleece tops are designed extra-long in the body to prevent cold air ingress at the waist. 

 

Taiga fleece

This warp-knit fleece is primarily for real activity use rather than the street scene, although its comfort and lightness give little indication of its robust performance. It will resist abrasion and cut the wind far better than normal weft-knit fleeces, shrug off a shower and dry very quickly after a soaking. If work or play takes you out into the elements, take Taiga fleece - you'll notice the difference.
