Available in both men’s and women’s cut, this 100% polyester fleece top is the perfect addition to your year-round outdoor layering system. On the face of it the Akka is a wonderfully simple, no frills mid layer that combines function and style with no fuss at all. Look a little closer, however, and you’ll see that there’s a little more to it than just a fleece pullover.
First up, the Akka is jersey faced with a marl finish — a fleece in disguise, and ideal for around town as well adding superb warmth on wilderness adventures. The inside is soft with fleece finish giving the wearer all the moisture wicking and quick drying benefits one would expect from a lightweight fleece.
Next up is the single hand-pocket. This has a super subtle zipper and it is just big enough to fit your keys, a small phone, or an ipod. The pocket is lined with soft fabric to protect its contents, and there is a tiny headphone port to run your wires inside the pullover and up through two even smaller loops on the inside of the high neck collar. These features are barely noticeable to the wearer and are excellent additions to this comfortable, slim fitting, and highly attractive fleece mid layer.
