The Hercules fleece from Pentagon is that perfect mid-weight item that is great to have in your kitbag at all times in any season. In Olive green colour (also available in Black and Coyote), the design carries a longer body that keeps draughts out and a high collar/chin guard with hood, that if you don’t want to wear the hood, at least keeps your neck surrounded and warm. YKK zippers are installed all round for assured durability, with the fine fleece double backed to retain your body heat, it also provides good wind resistance.
Perspiration is always an issue with warm clothing and for when you just want a covering without heating up too much, underarm zippers will open to vent some warmth and leave you in good control of your core temperature.
Pockets at the front for your hands don’t get too baggy when closed, due to a mesh inner lining and each arm has small pockets for valuables like radio or mobile phone.
Upper arms also carry hook/loop surfaces to attach Velcro moral patches. Elasticated cuffs are generous to fit over gloved hands and retain a Velcro adjuster to snug them a little tighter if desired and with a long cut to the arms, will stay in place even if crawling on the reinforced elbows. An ideal lighter weight outer layer in the spring or summer, with more capability as a mid-layer in the winter months, thanks to the breathability.
