Me And The Terramar TXO 3.0
Time for another #TerramarThursday (Sierra Edition)! Today, I review this pretty cool fleece jumper from Terramar:
This fleece is thin but warm so generally good for layering. How did it do on my recent trip to the Sierras?
I wore the fleece over a standard long sleeve shirt during all of my hikes and it kept me warm but I didn't really overheat. If I was feeling warm as I was huffing and puffing my way up a ridgeline somewhere, the half-zip zipper is a good thing as that allows for more venting so I could cool off a bit that way. It was thin enough for my activities but warm enough when I was standing around.
The only downside to the fleece is that there are no pockets! I wear cargo pants for a reason (because I am unable to pack well ;)) so I need lots of space to put things in which are readily accessible and this would be a great fleece if it came with pockets. Also, as I said above, it is a bit thin so if you are in camp on a cold night, you might want to put on a heavier jumper but for activities through the brush, this quickly became a favorite top.
I wore this puppy snowshoeing and hiking and it could take the beating I gave it so I am pleased as punch at its durability. Overall, a great fleece for adventuring and will definitely be put in my pack in the future.
I was provided this product because I am part of the Terramar Tribe. I try to review items like this as honestly as possible. Whether I liked it or not, I don't gain anything if you go out and buy these things. Its the Internet, take everything with a grain of salt and gain from it what you can.
