Wool Fleece Jacket


What if we told you... this wool fleece was actually made of wool?

Okay – we'll be honest – it's not 100% wool. That would be impossible. Impractical. Not a good move. The front, the fuzzy bit, is pure 62-grade merino wool. But the backing - that’s polyester. And it should be – actuallyneeds to be. Otherwise, as Yates and Achebe say, “things fall apart.”

We had the shell fabric for our Wool Fleece made custom in Wisconsin: it's made with a specialized, premium merino wool pile. Surprisingly lightweight, this is more than a layer - and it literally breathes. Fleece products made from entirely polyester are soft and warm, yes, but they're sweaty. Wool fleece insulates like the best of 'em, but breathes because it's an evolved animal fiber

Some of our favorite details are the tapered wrists, the exaggerated zipper, and most of all, the vertical zip chest pocket, which features straightforward, but subtle A.T. branding. The interior seams along the sleeves and armpits are flat locked: they won't dig into your body. Elastic wrists and waist ensure this fleece will keep its shape regardless of wind or thorough use. Lastly, the black nylon taslan chest pocket compliments the caramel body well, and can also be found beneath the collar - adding another layer of utility to this multi-seasonal fleece.
