That faded, nearly see-through fleece with the burn holes in it? Ditch that rag, and level-up with the modern midlayer FlyLow Women's Piper Jacket. It will keep you warm with micropuff synthetic down insulation, plus it will fend off bad weather with water-resistant DWR. Underarm vents and waterproof zippers elevate this high-tech, low-profile fleece replacement, so it's presentable on its own as well as with a shell.
This is a must have mid layer. It is perfect by itself to go to town with or even on a fall day hike. It's small enough that you can through it in your pack as an extra layer and not feel the extra weight. This coat is a perfect addition for those cold days on the East Coast.
