The Hiking 1-Sided Fleece by Adidas Outdoor has become my go-to this spring for layering up. When it’s chilly, I can easily layer over this fleece with a vest and jacket but on warmer days I can use it as a jacket and it’s the perfect weight. The fit and weight have definitely helped to make this layer my favorite one these days, however the color is an extra bonus and reason why I love this fleece. I have the Amazon red color option which is colorful but not outrageous and compliments casual and fancy outfits.
I wear the medium and it fits me well. Adidas does a really nice job of making their pieces long in the torso and arms, so I can wear a flattering fit and have my torso and wrists covered. The hood is large enough so I can fit a beanie underneath it but not too loose for an unflattering and floppy fit.
The Climawarm proves to be beneficial with a layer like this because of the thermal insulation provided however I have noticed that the material is not windproof or waterproof. Adidas does not market this as a wind or waterproof jacket but I just like to test the waters sometimes!
For a fairly lightweight, super attractive and warm layer, check out the Hiking 1-Sided Fleece by Adidas outdoor. Everyone needs a mid-weight layer like this for the crazy springtime weather!
