Not as good as the old Polarplus.
on 4 December 2012
I bought this fleece to replace the best fleece I have ever had that I have used for the last couple of years. Unfortunately the zip broke on my old fleece, so I knew exactly which one I needed to buy to replace it.
The new fleece does not feel as thick and warm as my old Polarplus. It feels more like a 200 fleece instead of a 300! The pockets are now NOT fleece lined on both sides, therefore hands cannot warm up as quick.
I am very disappointed with this fleece, I thought I was replacing like for like. Berghaus must be cutting costs, the same as everyone else.
Update on my review above.
The zip has now broken on this fleece as well. I am going to try a different brand this time.
