We think the humble wee fleece speaks for itself. It's an impressive combination of comfort and warmth that makes us say 'Aye, we'd like one in every colour!'
A fleece or sweater makes a great mid-layer thanks to its warmth-to-weight ratio. That is, trapping lots of body heat without feeling like you're wearing a big coat. Throw it on alone for a brisk spring walk or pair it with your sturdiest waterproof for a winter Munro expedition.
