Every serious mountain and outdoor lover knows the importance of protecting their body with adequate clothing against the cold. This is even more important if you partake in winter sports or other outdoor winter activities. If you’re reading this, it probably means that you’re preparing for an active winter trip. But then again, who doesn’t like a soft warm fleece even on a rainy day in the city? No matter your surroundings and the type of activity, Columbia men’s technical fleece items have got you covered.
As you probably know by now, we have fleece gilets and vests, but our fleece clothing is divided into three primary categories:
There’s a lot of science behind each and every one of our designs, and it is no different with technical fleeces. Let’s look at the technology behind them.
The technology we use in our technical fleece items
When it comes to men’s technical fleeces, there are two main technologies we implement in the design: Omni-Wick™ and Omni-Wick™ Evap. These advanced moisture wicking technologies are designed to help your body get rid of excess sweat and moisture. Even if it’s cold outside, your body emits sweat when it’s in motion. This can make you sick and cause serious health problems, from common colds to joint, muscle, and bone pain. That’s why it’s paramount to invest in great clothing. The Omni-Wick™ Technology implemented in our technical fleece items wicks away any moisture from your body so it can evaporate as quickly as possible. Similarly, Omni-Wick™ Evap works based on the same principle, but even more quickly. As the name suggests, it makes moisture evaporate super fast by distributing it evenly.
How to choose the perfect fits
We have already established that you can’t go wrong when you invest in a fleece piece of clothing. With men’s technical fleece options, you’ll be safe and warm everywhere in outdoor terrain: on a mountain, during ski trips, trekking or hiking. But how do you pick the right fleece, size and colours? Let us tell you a bit more about our technical fleece options so you can narrow down your choices. All fleece items serve a basic purpose: they’re thermal insulation.
All our pieces are both breathable and warm but also lightweight, which makes them the perfect choice for comfort and a wide range of outfit options. The first thing you can be sure of is the size: our technical fleeces range from XS to 6XL. We’ve got you covered, and don’t worry about the model and fabric because all products are true to size. If any doubt, you can always check out our size guide.
So, just ask yourself: What kind of fleece do I need? Depending on your purpose, we can offer a wide variety of fleece items for you to check out:
Half Zip Hoodie, Jacket, or Vest
Full Zip Hoodie, Jacket or Vest
There are thinner and thicker options, and you will see that there are multiple colours so you can rock that urban look. A little something extra to add to the overall comfort and functionality are the thumb holes, chin guards and pockets.
No worries, just warmth
Columbia items work perfectly, alone or layered. Preventing the cold, wind, and water is serious business and that’s our main purpose–and that’s not a stretch. Our lightweight items are made from quality fabric so even when layering, it doesn’t make you feel heavy.
You don’t need multiple shirts and zip jackets. Our high performance fleece our softshell jackets provide comfort on each and every adventure you go on. Don your hooded fleece and get ready to explore!
