Fall is here. Whether that's a sentence you've been waiting to hear for months or whether you've been dreading the arrival of the chill, there's nothing you can do about it. You can, however, make the most of it. Getting the most out of fall and winter means building the optimal wardrobe and one of the first ports of call in this sphere is a good fleece. The best fleeces for fall and winter will cater to style and substance and have the potential to be one of the most useful items of the season.

Our selection of the best fleeces for fall and winter ranges from utilitarian options that are easy to style with your everyday fits from the likes of Snow Peak and Nike through to bold, luxury selections from Y/Project, Situationist, and more. We want to show that whatever your style, the fleece is at your disposal.

Plus, with gorpcore clearly going nowhere, the fleece is not only utilitarian and sometimes luxurious, it's also an on-trend fixture for the coming season. With all of that in mind, dive in to the best fleeces for fall and winter.
