RefrigiWear Fleece Jacket – Gear Review

Categories:Clothing | Gear Review

The RefrigiWear Fleece is a warm well made and will keep you warm. Now that the weather here in Arizona has cooled off this has been a great light weight jacket to wear for everyday life as well handy for day hikes. The fleece weight wise is heavier than most jackets I would normally take on day hikes,  but it has come in handy on several hikes where it was extremely windy.


The jacket may not be classified as “windproof” but it should be.  The elastic cuffs are perfect to keep them in place without being too tight. Zippered pockets on the outside allow you to keep things safe in your pockets while on the trail or out and about. There are also two pockets on the inside opposite of the zippered pockets.  This jacket is perfect for day hikes, hunting, car camping, and everyday life. It can also be used as a mid layer when the temps really drop and you need to put on a rain or snow shell over the top of it.

Overall I like this jacket but It will be interesting to see how it will last through the winter and into the early spring. I had not heard of RefrigiWear before they contacted me to try out this jacket. I am quite impressed and will be looking into more of their products.
