The Polar Fleece Collection

The Polar Fleece Collection

We released our first Polar Fleeces back in March, and they have since become a firm favourite among our community. Moving into the colder months, we wanted to expand this collection to offer a wider range of colours and fits to suit every kind of adventure…

A functional, mid-heavyweight fleece that is ideal for getting out and exploring on those cold winter days, the Polar Fleece is available as a quarter-zip, full-zip, or gilet. With five colours to choose from, it will fit seamlessly into your winter adventure kit.

Designed for adventures, whatever the weather, this fleece will take you anywhere. Here is everything you need to know about our Polar Fleece collection…


An overview…

The Polar Fleece is just as at home in the mountains as it is in the city, making it the ultimate addition to your adventure collection for every season. Made from 450 GSM recycled fabric, this mid-heavyweight fleece is the perfect option for warmer evenings or a great layering piece for colder winter days.

With five colourways to choose from – Charcoal, Beige, Teal, Coral, and Forest – the Polar Fleece is available as a Full Zip, Quarter Zip, or Gilet. Designed for all-season adventuring, the Polar Fleece boasts ultra-warmth sherpa that is sure to keep you warm in even the harshest of conditions. 

A unisex fit, with sizing available from XS to XL, there are plenty of fit options, whether you want a more fitted fleece or an oversized fit that is perfect for layering.


Eco side…

We are passionate about protecting the planet that gives us so much. So, staying in line with our eco side and maintaining a focus on lower-impact materials is something that remained central in the process of producing our Wear Adventure Collection. 

The Polar Fleece collection is no exception. All fabrics in the Polar Fleece are manufactured from 100% recycled polyester (RPET), including the external mid-pile fleece and the internal micro-fleece lining. 

RPET is produced by breaking down recycled plastic bottles into tiny pieces, which are then turned into fibre and woven into fabric or insulation. This recycled fabric or insulation is then used to build the final product.

The technical side…

As a journey back to Bleubird’s roots of winter, we wanted to ensure our entire Wear Adventure Collection could stand up to whatever the elements have to throw at it. As at home in the mountains as they are in the city, our Polar Fleeces are designed to take you anywhere. Here are some features that set these fleeces aside from the rest…

  • 450 GSM: A mid-heavyweight fleece with an ultra-warm mid-pile sherpa exterior, the Polar Fleece will keep you warm in even the harshest of conditions.
  • Microfleece-lined interior: Offering an extra layer of warmth, the Polar Fleece features an ultra-warm microfleece-lined interior that will ensure you stay warm while out adventuring.
  • YKK Zips: A trusted global producer of high-quality zips, renowned for their flawless production standards and thorough quality control processes. All zips used throughout the Polar Fleece collection are YKK zips.
  • Zipped front pockets: Two external zipped front pockets and one external zipped breast pocket offer plenty of space to keep your belongings safe and dry.
  • Contrast Colourway: Offering a retro contrast colourway, this piece is as stylish as it is functional.
  • Elasticated toggle hem: The adjustable toggle hem allows you to adjust the fit of the jacket to your ideal fit, while also helping prevent splashes from getting inside.
