As hiking fleeces go, the Canyonlands is one of the most versatile. The smooth brushed fabric feels good against your skin and ensures it puts up no resistance against other layers, like a weather-protective shell. It also makes this hiking fleece look casual enough to not look like a hiking fleece. Then there’s the healthy dose of stretch combined with the raglan sleeve cut, both of which help deliver enhanced freedom of movement. The hood has a micro elastic edge to ensure a close fit and the back hem also features elastic to help it stay in place when worn with a backpack.
