Fleece Jackets to Beat the Winter Freeze

Fleece Jackets to Beat the Winter Freeze

Leading workwear manufacturer Dickies (UK) offers a selection of fleece jackets manufactured to withstand working conditions. These include the Tampa Fleece, the Eisenhower Bonded Fleece and the Albany Fleece, which are all made from a micro polar fleece fabric.

Micro polar fleece is a soft napped, synthetic wool fabric with excellent insulating qualities. Even though a relatively thin fabric, micro polar fleece is comfortable and warm to wear. 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 Eisenhower Bonded Fleece is part of Dickies’ extremely popular Eisenhower range. This warm fleece jacket also has a breathable laminated mesh barrier that provides resistance to water and the wind. 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.

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.
