Scottish company Keela regularly produces well-designed, good quality clothing at a reasonable price and this top is no exception. Made from Zetland 100 Microfleece it has very good warmth to weight ratio, flat locked seams (which I feel could have been even less bulky but raglan sleeve design meant there was no seam chafing), good length neck zip for ventilation and ease of taking off.
Nice added touches include slightly bowed longer back and fleece baffle and top cover for the zip. Fit is slim, making it very suitable as a base layer in colder weather, if you intend to use it mainly as a mid layer or prefer a looser fit best to order a size up.
Good arm movement and no bobbling or wear after a good number of outings and washing cycles. Fabric feels lovely next to the skin and is actually a bit fleecier than the stock photos in the catalogues which make the fabric appear smoother. A firm favourite for cooler days already.
The most noticeable feature of the Keela Micro Pulse Fleece top is how soft to the feel and lightweight it is. This is well designed with effective wicking technology and quality stitching on the flat seams. These flat seams are great for wearing against the skin, causing NO irritation and great comfort.
The 1/4 zip allows for ease of fitting and both venting as well as improving insulation on doing it up. This features a high neck and has a comfortable chin guard flap on the zip ensuring no irritation when done up.
The fleece is flexible and due to its design it maintains shape really well without becoming saggy. A great base layer particularly if you like a velvety fleece feel against the skin.
