Fleece jackets are great for adding an extra layer of warmth under another coat or when it’s too cold to wear just a shirt. Although they can start to deteriorate in appearance and performance quite quickly, and are prone to bobbling, which can reduce their ability to retain warmth, they can be effective in some demanding conditions.
Although the words “fleece jackets” and “fleece pullovers” are used interchangeably, there is a difference between them: fleece jackets have a full zipper front where as fleece jackets with a half or ¾ zipper fronts are called fleece pullovers.
Fleece jackets are made from Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) or other synthetic fibers and can be made out of recycled PET bottles, or even recycled fleece. They are lightweight, warm, soft, and hydrophobic, holding less than 1% of their weight in water which allows them to retain much of their insulating powers even when wet. They are machine washable, dry quickly and are very breathable. Fleece blankets are another popular promotional product made from PET.
Custom jackets are a great way for people to express their own individuality and the perfect promotional apparel item for cool weather. Full zipper front or pullover fleece jackets offer the flexibility of a unisex style to be worn outdoors; spring, fall, winter or cool summer nights. Custom fleece jackets offer four seasons of freedom of expression and promotional opportunities in one style.
A great fleece that felt comfortable on the skin. It was highly resistant to abrasion, with good stretch capability, and was quite wind resistant when worn on its own. It wicked away sweat even when I was very active. The inside of the jacket retained its warmth and dryness in light rain. It performed very well in a range of conditions, from being worn by itself on cold evenings to under a soft shell jacket in cold winds and under a waterproof in heavy rain.
