So how exactly does fleece function to keep people feeling good in the bad weather? The answer lies in the structure of the fleece fabric. Fleece traps a barrier of air warmed by your own body temperature next to your skin. This means that cold air is trapped outside of the material and warm air is trapped inside, and this is how fleece helps your body stay warm. While fleece is trapping warmth close to your skin, its fibers are wicking moisture away from your skin and transferring it to the outside by a process called capillary action. That's how fleece continues to provide warmth even when it's wet. Not only is fleece warm, but it’s porous structure makes it incredibly breathable. For that reason, fleece is the best choice you can make for comfortable outdoor clothing needs, whether you're hiking, skiing, snowboarding, mountain climbing, or whatever. Fleece is tough enough and durable enough to go where you go.
