I don't suppose anyone has a lightly used original version of the montbell chameece inner fleece in size L they want to get rid of?
I have come to the conclusion that no one makes something like this fleece anymore :-( The closest I have found around here is a TNF 100wt micro fleece pullover. Fit was pretty close to what I am looking for when I size down. Unfortunately, I need something for traveling in addition to in the back country so Bob's suggestion of surgery really doesn't work for me, I won't produce something that is acceptable in looks. The other issue is that the material in the inner fleece seems to be about 60-70% the weight of the typical 100wt classic micro fleece that most companies use. I run hot… slightly lighter really makes a difference for me.
From the description, the Haglofs Micro Jacket sounds the closest to what I am looking for, though it will be a warmer / heavier than I would like. Anyone know someplace that carries them in the US? I am not finding any place.
Most of the fleece I have looked at / suggested here are more of a regular rather than athletic fit which includes the Patagonia, Marmot fleece and most of the lower cost options from places like Old Navy are tend to be heavier / warmer than I want.
There were suggestion ofhoody including doing an R1 knock off. If it was for back country only in the winter, I am right there with you. When the snow is out, an R1 hoody is on my body… but for most of my 3 season trips, and for around town, this is just too much for me.
