Mountain Equipment calls this fleece “An unrestrictive technical hooded microfleece that is ideal for climbing and mountaineering in cool conditions.” But does it does it live up to this description?
The Mountain Equipment Shroud Jacket is made of a couple of different fleece fabrics from Polartec. Firstly, it uses Polartec Micro for the main body, sleeves and back. Secondly it has Polartec PowerStretch in the hood, sides, under the arms and around the cuff. Other features include three pockets, one inside and two on the outside, thumb loops, and that’s about it!
