This incredibly lightweight and soft microfleece jacket in finest Polartec® microfleece by Nanook of Sweden is a favourite with active families all around Europe. It takes up hardly any volume at all in a bag or backpack and is extremely comfortable to wear, yet provides exceptional warmth, as the material is designed to mould itself to the wearer's body, trapping air pockets. It's ideal as a reinforcing middle layer in winter, for example for skiing, or as a light but snug sweater for spring, summer and autumn.
Soft elastic cuffs keep the sleeves in place, while a cosy chin guard prevents chafing from the zip. The amazing quality of the fabric ensures that it feels like new for many years, even with frequent washing (it dries almost instantly too), and this is such a cosy, comforting jacket that we've known children to refuse to take it off, even to sleep!
