Montane Volt Hoodie - Best all-round fleece jacket, performance and good looks - We've singled out Montane's Volt Hoodie because of its styling and design.
The Volt Hoodie has been designed for year round use, providing exceptional comfort and warmth without weight, thanks to the POLARTEC Thermal Pro® fabric. The Volt Hoodie is equally comfortable to wear whilst working hard high in the French Alps as it is taking it easy by a sunlit fjord in Greenland.

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 added subtle coloured highlights to the zipper pulls and logos which lift the appearance further. Add to that a nice hood with a short wired peak, stretch side panels and a basic cord adjustment and you have a very accomplished garment.
