    Comfortable and warm, the fleece jacket has become a favourite garment with many workers. Leading workwear manufacturer Dickies (UK) offer a selection of fleece jackets manufactured to withstand working conditions. These include the Tampa Fleece, the Albany Fleece and the Eisenhower Bonded Fleece, which are all made from a micro polar fleece fabric.

    Polar fleece fabric was invented in 1979 and is now used extensively in garment manufacturing. Polar fleece is a soft napped, synthetic wool fabric with excellent insulating qualities. It is very comfortable to wear and extremely warm even though it is a relatively thin fabric. It has several advantages over natural wool including being lighter, less expensive and much easier to care for, as it only requires a cool wash and dries much quicker than wool.

    In addition to providing cold weather protection, the Tampa Fleece is also windproof and water-resistant. This is due to the breathable intermediate laminated mesh barrier included in the garment’s construction. The Tampa Fleece has two zipped side pockets, an angled zipped pocket on the chest, knitted cuffs and a tail hem.

    The Albany Fleece has a zip front closure and nylon Oxford trim. Other features include hand warmer pockets and two chest pockets one of which is divided into a pen pocket and a mobile phone pocket. This lightweight fleece jacket has elastic cuffs and is available in sizes ranging from M to XXL.

    The Eisenhower Bonded Fleece is from Dickies’ extremely popular Eisenhower range. This warm fleece jacket also has a laminated mesh barrier that provides resistance to water and the wind, while being highly breathable. Features include full-length zip closure with a velcro fastening storm flap, two lower zipped pockets, a zipped chest pocket and a mobile phone pocket with a tab-opening flap.
