Marmot's Thermo Flare Jacket uses incredibly soft fleece fabric, inside and out. So soft in fact you might not want to take it off. It's very light considering the warmth you get out of it and it packs down well to store in a pack.
There's a few features which make it stand out from other fleeces. The first is that the hand warmer pockets are on the large size. You practically get an entire torso's worth of height inside, so you will have no problem storing long maps.
Secondly is the stretchy cuffs. The pictures don't show it well but there's a V-shaped cut out at the cuffs which has been replaced with stretchy fabric which gives you better freedom of movement It's also slightly tougher than the fleece so will help against general wear when grabbing or using kit.
