Re: Alternative to fleece

I have a primaloft jacket which can be zipped into LLBeans goretex parka.
They are unbeatable for winter conditions. I also have Beans fleece
pullover, which I use year round. I don't think I could trade off the
primaloft for the fleece in the warmer months. The primaloft is like a down
jacket, for one thing, and though it would be easy to carry as it stuffs into
its own pocket, it wouldn't be suitable for spring through fall. I carry my
fleece pullover behind the compression straps of my external frame pack, and
it's right there when I stop for more than a couple of minutes, or the 1st
thing I reach for when arriving at camp. At higher elevations it's great
even in summer.
