Lightweight fleece provides the optimal combination of warmth and mobility for a fleece vest, while quality fleece fabric ensures a feeling that is unbelievably soft. Moreover, fleece's anti-pill finish keeps your fleece vest looking great long into the future!

Some fleece vests come with a rib-knit trim at the collar, armholes and waistband adding a classy look to your versatile fleece garment. Double-thick stand-up collars add warmth around the neck on some fleece vests. Fleece vests for women may include a feminine seaming for a most contoured fit. Fleece vests are available with zippered pockets, slide-in pockets, breast pockets and pockets that zip or snap shut. Other fleece vests have a water repellant nylon finish, or a wind resistant fleece exterior. There are even reversible fleece vests for a double look and purpose. You can zip up fleece vests using a 2-way zipper, snap fleece vests shut with snaps, or tighten fleece vests to fit snuggly with an adjustable drawstring. Fleece vests are available in the gamut of sizes, from extra small to extra, extra large, and you can choose a fleece vest from an array of cool colors.

Vests made from fleece can be used for an extra layer of warmth under an outer shell, or used alone as a handsome outer layer in milder temperatures. Fleece vests' lightweight construction render them ideal for traveling: Light, durable, easy to care for, quick-to-dry, and take up almost no luggage space!

One of the best features of fleece vests is its amazing versatility. Fleece vests provide lightweight insulation that allows you to move freely in cold conditions. Fleece vests are ideal for mountaineering, hiking, running, snow shoeing and skiing. Fleece vests can be worn over a long sleeve shirt, or can be attached to a larger jacket shell and be worn as a thermal middle layer. Some fleece vests are long enough to make them a toasty torso warmer when the chill of winter hits the air, while windproof fleece vests provide a blustery barrier between you and Mother Nature's gales.

Alternatively, dress up for dinner using a fleece vest as a handsome dinner jacket, layering it on top of a sweater, shirt or blouse for a most distinguished look! Properly fitted and thoughtfully matched, fleece vests are a valuable addition to any fashionable wardrobe.
