Snugpak Impact Fleece

Its getting cooler again here in the Northern Hemisphere so perhaps it is time to take a Snugpak Impact Fleece with us, writes Mike Gormley.


As the evenings draw in and there is a chill in the air it becomes necessary to add a warmer layer. A very good way of doing this is the Snugpak Impact Fleece.

I have worn mine a few times on recent evenings and been glad of it. The Impact can be a mid, or even base, layer and of course works very well under a top layer if wet or cold. This really is a very handy and universal item of gear and one you will be pleased to have in your inventory as the northern hemisphere heads into the winter months.

Tailored from100% Polyester Fleece with an anti-pilling finish on both side, it is a pullover design with half zip and so some venting is possible if things warm up. The protected zip goes right up to make the collar into a polo neck for added warmth. This garment is what Snugpak term a ‘technical fit’ so of body-hugging design which is good when active. A very useful all -round item of clothing, available in six sizes from XS to XXL. Pictured is the Light Grey version but currently only Black is showing as being in stock on the Snugpak.com e-commerce website.
