As fleeces go, The North Face Glacier is a classic. It's made from microfleece that delivers lightweight warmth thanks to its unique lofted structure. Air pockets trap air without compromising breathability, so you stay warm without getting sweaty. Abrasion-resistant overlays on the upper body and sleeves give you an added durability boost. It's the ideal layering piece to wear with a waterproof shell.

By recycling fabrics, we are not only stopping extra waste heading to landfill but also reducing the need for virgin fabrics to be created. Recycled fabrics can be anything from recycled polyester to recycled cotton and where recycled cotton is used, it's often offcuts from factory floors that would otherwise end up in landfill.
This brand ensures that the factories they use have been third party audited but are not specifically partnered with a Non-Profit Organisation. This will be either BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) or SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit), which are social auditing methologies and reports but are not an accreditation. This means the brand has sourced factories who have passed an audit, so their worker rights, environmental impact and social compliance is up to scratch.
