In cold weather situations, even well-insulated coats and jackets can fail to adequately maintain your core body temperature. Thankfully, a slim fitting apex vest can help provide better warmth and comfort by being worn underneath regular outdoor coats. In like regard, a fleece vest can be worn in place of heavier coats, specifically in climbing and canyoning contexts where wearing such garments might impede full mobility.
Fleece vests are perfect for outdoor activities where retaining a full mobility is essential.
Sadly, not every fleece vest is created equal. In fact, many imported vests fail to meet basic comfort and durability standards which consumers expect. This is why at 20 Degrees Below, every vest we sell is made right here in the USA. We’re proud to support USA based manufacturing. Moreover, because we do, you can be assured that every vest you purchase will always adhere to the highest possible quality standards.
Just like 20 Degrees Below coats and jackets, our apex vest garments are available in a wide range of colors and sizes.
From standout cardinal reds to dark gray vest shades, we can help you be as highly visible or as inconspicuous as you want to be. As a general rule, however, while blacks and darker colors are perfect when it comes to enhanced personal insulation, bright reds and similar colors will often be preferable for climbers and canyoning enthusiasts who need to be highly visible when engaged in such activities.
An apex vest is an essential piece of outdoor gear for anyone who loves to run, climb, or engage in activities which aren’t best served by regular coats and jackets. When choosing a fleece vest, however, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons of bulkier full fleece vest garments as opposed to a slimmer fitting compact vest designs. Activities such as climbing and canyoning, for example, will rarely be best served by bulky fleece vests. Instead, any activity which requires the use of a harness will always be much better served by a slimmer fitting and compact vest designs.
