Fleece Jacket: Perfect Wear for Camping & Backcountry Trips!

First-time campers or hikers to NZ mountains often leave warm clothing behind. And then they discover that the remote, higher-elevation mountains of NZ have cold nights with near-freezing temperatures, and sometimes, chilly days. 

So, if you are planning to camp out in the mountainous terrain of NZ, take long day hikes, or head out for multi-night backpack trips, consider packing different types of fleece clothing in your camping gear! 

Why Wear Fleece Jackets on Outdoor Adventures? 

The most important aspect of a fleece jacket is its fabric. The fabric is made from polyester, comprising threaded plastics. A fleece hoodie has tons of properties that make it an ideal clothing material to be used in outwear. Here’s why you should consider carrying a fleece jacket in nz for camping or hiking on the mountainous terrain of NZ.

  • Highly Breathable: Since fleece is a synthetic material, it provides extra protection to clothes from snow and water. It is an excellent moisture deflector and continues to remain breathable even when wet.
  • Durable: Fleece is much sturdier than natural fabrics like wool and cotton. They are made up of polyester, a material manufactured from recycled PET and we all know how durable PET is.
  • Lightweight: Fleece is an ultra-light clothing material. And this makes a fleece jacket an ideal outwear alternative to woolen clothes for camping or hiking.
  • Affordable: Fleece clothing is much cheaper than its wool and cotton counterparts. This is one of the biggest reasons for the growing use of fleece in outdoor wears.
