- Fleece: strong yet lightweight clothing at sea -
Not a fan of classic and prefer something more functional and stylish? Then browse through our range of fleece jackets. As a baselayer, midlayer or for slightly cooler sailing days. Is there anything more pleasant than a comfortable, cosy and breathable fleece jacket for men? Fleece is the typical technical all-rounder and the synthetic alternative to warm natural fabrics.
A great invention from 1979, the velour fabric promises robustness and high thermal insulation with good breathability - the fleece jacket is not only a great garment for outdoor activities and sailing, because it is also great to wear in colder or windier everyday life. Even if you start to sweat and the jacket gets damp, moisture can escape effectively, and fleece provides warmth without causing heat build-up inside.
If it is still too cold outside to wear just a shirt, fleece jackets can be used to provide you with warmth for both sporting and everyday activities. What we're saying is that fleece, the superstar of the outdoor world, can be worn all year round. However, it's important to choose the right fleece jacket to suit your needs.
The synthetic fabric boasts a variety of great properties:
- Water repellent & quick drying (but not waterproof!)
- Cosy and soft
- Durable and robust
- Virtually crease-free
- Some fleece jackets are made from 100% recycled polyester!
To find the right fleece jacket, men are spoilt for choice. Jackets are available with zips and varying numbers of pockets, which could be a factor to consider when choosing. Do you need a fleece jacket with a hood or is your sailing jacket and oilskin well equipped in this department? How can a fleece jacket complement your sailing clothing and outdoor outfit?
The fit, whether loose or body-hugging, naturally depends on your personal preferences. A loose fit and stretch fleece jackets offer more freedom of movement and are good choices in warmer climates, while a tighter fit prevents you from getting too cold. In colder regions, in wet conditions or if you are particularly sensitive to the cold, a tighter fit is recommended rather than what you are used to on the land. Lightweight and medium-weight fleece jackets are the right choice for sailing, so that you don't sweat too much while sailing and can conduct enough heat and moisture to the outside. Thick fleece can inhibit movement if you plan to be more active when wearing.
Is there still space in your sailing travel bag for your next trip or are you searching for the right bag to carry your yachting clothes and outdoor clothing in? Or do you now need the right Men's sailing jacket and the matching Men's functional underwear to complement your midlayer?
