A versatile fleece that doesn't look out of place in the mountains or the city. A great look is combined with high performance with the Polartec High Loft that gives you a good amount of warmth without adding huge amounts of weight.

Mountain Hardwear says:
Great as a layer or adorable on its own, this fleece packs the punch whether you’re overnight backpacking, on a day hike, or trail run. Polartec High Loft fabric provides unsurpassed warmth while remaining super light and packable, making this easy to take with you on any adventure. Secure your goodies with confidence in the zippered chest and handwarmer pockets. Complete with comfy, stretchy side panels making it easy to stay active.
Mountain Hardwear's Womens Monkey Woman Jacket is a great fleece. It is super soft, amazingly comfortable and it looks great. However, it is not simply designed for fashion. There are loads of features such as the stretchy, high wicking side panels, wrists and hem to ensure the jacket is breathable, close fitting but not restrictive so you can still hike, climb and scramble without worrying about your clothing choice.
The technical Polartec High Loft fabric used in the Monkey Women provides an extremely high level of warmth while remaining light and packable. This version improves on the comfort, style and performance of older versions making it a great jacket for any occasion.
