Another product article for Nepal 🙂 - this time it is about fleece sweaters. Fleece sweaters are mid-layer. You have three layers:
- Base Layer: On your skin
- Mid Layer: Insulation
- Outer Layer: Against wind / rain / snow
Meaning the fleece is not meant to be wind or water proof, but to keep you warm. I will use it for trekking. They don't insulate as well as down; I think I will use them on the hike. The down is more for when I don't move.
Polartec Thermal Pro-Fleece seems to be a common material, Nanuk is the version from Jack Wolfskin.

I took the Mammut Innominata Advanced ML Jacket because it is super thick and very long. I also had the Fjällräven Buck Fleece, but I had the impression that it is not thick enough.
