Of course there are stacks of mid-layer garments on the market. Who turns to Mountain Craftsman for a Fleece? Firstly, I tend to be approached by people who have found “off-the-peg” sizing to be inadequate for their particular body-shape.
Secondly are customers who have not yet found their ideal combination of fabric and features in garments available from other brands.
I like to keep my eye out for quirky Fleece fabrics; particularly those that offer good wind-resistance without the use of laminated membranes. Some customers regret the disappearance of “Ultrafleece / Superfleece” from the market-place and I like to keep an eye out for suitable alternatives.
