Womens Fleeces

At Tiso, we know that a good midlayer is essential for exploring. Along with helping you to regulate your body temperature, your fleece makes it possible to create a stylish and functional layering system.

Our online selection includes a women's fleece for every outdoor pursuit. Whether you're a weekend walker or a mountaineer, you'll find quality fleeces by Arc'teryx, Berghaus, Patagonia, The North Face and many more brands here. If you'd like to make a sustainable choice, look out for our Think Green label below.

Our thickest fleece jumpers for women work best as outer layers, while a lightweight fleece could be paired with a waterproof jacket or a windbreaker. Whichever type you choose, you can layer it to stay just the right temperature. From steep mountain trails to frosty hillsides, a breathable fleece will keep you warm when it matters most.

We're a team of outdoor enthusiasts at Tiso. We've been helping our customers find quality gear for over 60 years, so we know which features to look out for. Our first-hand experience in the mountains means we can recommend just the right ladies' fleece jacket for you.

How should a ladies' fleece jacket fit?

If you're buying one for the first time, you might be wondering if a fleece should be tight or loose-fitting. We recommend a snug fit if you're planning to layer your new fleece; otherwise, the answer comes down to your own preference.

Because our women's fleece jackets are typically used above a base layer and underneath a jacket, you should try to leave a little bit of space. Avoid choosing a size that's too big, though, because your fleece won't keep you as warm if it's not close to your skin.

If you're buying a technical fleece for mountaineering or hiking, movement is important too. When you try on your fleece, you should be able to move your arms up freely and comfortably above your head. For a casual jumper or a stylish Patagonia fleece, you might prefer a slightly oversized fit.

How to layer a women's fleece jacket

Knowing how to layer your new ladies' fleece jacket is vital if you'd like to keep warm on the trails. You need to think about more than just the weather because, once you're on the move, you'll naturally warm up quite quickly!

To layer your fleece effectively, we recommend that you:

  • Start with a thermal base layer in winter. In spring or autumn, you might prefer to choose a tank in case it warms up later in the day.
  • Wear your fleece as the middle layer. If you choose a quarter-zip fleece, you can use this to adjust your temperature on the move.
  • If you expect scattered showers or driving rain, wearing a waterproof jacket over your fleece will ensure that you stay warm and dry. If you're walking through subzero temperatures, meanwhile, an insulated jacket makes the best outer layer choice.

Building a stylish and functional layering system means you can rely on the same gear to keep you moving comfortably.

Will a fleece keep me warm on its own?

Wearing a fleece as an outer layer will only keep you warm in certain environments. On a crisp autumnal walk, for example, wearing your women's fleece jumper might be enough to keep you cosy. If you're going hiking in the middle of winter, though, you might need a down jacket too.

The warmth of your fleece also depends on the brand and type. If you'd like some recommendations on the warmest women's fleeces in our selection, we're here to help.

Do you need a fleece and an insulated jacket?

Pairing a fleece with a thick padded jacket is a fantastic idea for deep winter adventures. It's worth bearing in mind that you'll still warm up as your hike goes on, so you might need to remove layers on the go.

Fortunately, many of our ladies' insulated jackets can be easily compressed into a small carry bag and stowed away in your rucksack – so you can warm up again once you reach the summit.

How to wash a technical fleece jacket

You should always wash a fleece according to the manufacturer's care instructions. Many of our ladies' fleece jackets can be washed at home frequently. We recommend bearing in mind a few things, though, to make your gear last as long as possible. You should try to:

  • Wash your fleece on a gentle, low-heat cycle.
  • Use mild detergents, and only the recommended amount.
  • Air-dry your fleece whenever possible.
  • Avoid using fabric softener on technical gear, as it can cling to the fibres.

Does fleece shrink when it's washed?

No. Technical women's fleece jackets are made using specialist blends of fibres, often including polyester. While sheep's wool might shrink in the washing machine, you can wash a fleece without worrying about it changing size or shape. Just make sure never to tumble-dry your fleece on a high heat.
