UOG TOP PICK - Montane Volt Alpiniste Jacket - Best all-round fleece jacket, performance and good looks - We've singled out Montane's Volt Alpiniste Jacket as one of our top recommendations because of its styling and design.
The Volt Alpiniste Jacket follows in the footsteps of the exceptionally popular Volt Jacket and is designed for use during higher level activity. It provides exceptional comfort and warmth when climbing, belaying and hiking in cooler conditions.
Utilising outstandingly warm yet lightweight, durable POLARTEC® Thermal Pro® Honeycomb which is zoned with POLARTEC® 100 Series to ensure unrestricted freedom of movement and comfort. Technical tailoring in the arms and side panels eliminates hem lift; essential for stretching between holds on the wall or when reaching with trekking poles. A fully adjustable hood with a wired peak allows the Volt Alpiniste to be layered in cold weather clothing systems and makes this an ideal piece for use the mountains.

We always recommend a synthetic filled garment as a 'fleece replacement' because they offer more insulation at about half the weight. However sometimes we'll reach for a fleece because they're very comfortable and can be worn just about anywhere.
We reckon Montane's Volt Alpiniste fleece is about the best out there (if you don't like a hood then there's the Volt Jacket), the first thing you notice is the honeycomb grid pattern which gives it a technical look that's very attractive. Montane have also updated the side panels and underarm fabric to DRYACTIV Stretch fleece fabric to manage moisture better and have a four way stretch for dynamic body movement.
Add to that a nice hood with a short wired peak and a basic cord adjustment and you have an accomplished garment.
