The 2016 contour fleece is a highly warm and breathable fleece that can also be worn as a winter baselayer. Prio Stretch fleece fabric offers high levels of warmth without restricting movement.
The High Wicking Stretch Fleece fabric gives the Contour an active fit with great warmth and freedom of movement. Offset and flatlocked shoulder seams reduce rub and chaffing points. The long zip is designed to allow you to vent and the thumb loops and elasticated cuff give a good fit.
OMM's 2016 Contour Fleece is an update on the much loved Contour Fleece. It still uses Prio Stretch fleece fabric which is very similar to PowerStretch - nice fleecy and warm internal face with smooth outer face.
The new feature is that they have moved the chest zip pocket to the arm and given the stitching a bright orange makeover. The fleece has a high collar and a deep front venting zip with a lock down puller (prevents the zip from moving when faced down).
OMM likes thumb loops - again a very practical feature.
