Warm, comfortable, easy to care for and affordable: the bottom line is fleece just works. Akita has a smooth outer face and super soft back with just a touch more wind resistance than your regular fleece, and comes in a full zip jacket style with two hand pockets. Mamalute is kind of a wolf in sheep’s clothing; the outer is a lovely heather knit which looks like it could be wool but is in fact polyester, and the inner is a more regular looking fleece. The combination is a reassuringly warm and weighty hooded jacket that, let’s face it, you’re probably going to want to keep for best.
