The Great Jacket Debate: Fleece vs. Windbreakers


Customers seem to be split down the middle in the great jacket debate, having chosen sides with either fleece zip-ups or windbreakers. Unfortunealty, weighing the pros and, for lack of cons, more pros of each side doesn’t seem to be making the choice any clearer. On one side we have unparalleled softness and warmth and, on the other side, we have incomparable rain and wind proof comfort.

As far as dilemmas go, this is not a very troublesome one, luckily. If only every great debate came down to choosing from the best of two worlds, rather than the lesser of two evils.

Let’s compare the pros and pros of each favorable jacket material to see if we can help customers finally come to a confident decision.


Anshi Men’s & Women’s Full Zip Knit Hoodies


While the Anshi Full Zip Knit Hoodie, in both men’s and women’s styles, is not the only fleece zip ups offered at Health Promotions Now, it embodies just about everything that’s great about the fleece jackets in our collection. Its 100% micro polyester heather knit feels luxuriously soft on the inside, while the relaxed style gives a cool and casual appearance on the outside. A kangaroo pocket with a built-in media slot and a lined hood provide the extra comfort and convenience you would expect from a high-quality fleece jacket and the variety of popular neutral colors will make you want to own one in each shade. You’ll have your own brand looking more stylish than ever when you add your logo to this fleece jacket, thanks to trendy features like elongated cuffs with thumb exits and contrast raglan style sleeves.


Charles River® New Englander Men’s Rain Jacket


If our windbreakers could speak, they’d say they’re not backing down from this race just because the Anshi fleece hoodies are a force to be reckoned with. They’ve got plenty of amazing features to offer as well. Note the wind and waterproof bonded polyurethane shell that can withstand intense chills and wind gusts, the vented capes and mesh lining for extra comfort and breathability, the shockcord drawstrings in the hood and open hem for adjustable size and a perfect fit, and even a two-way front zipper for added mobility. This is one windbreaker that’s not intimidated by the bells and whistles of certain fleece jackets. Choose from 7 bold colors in men’s jackets and an amazing 11 colors in women’s.


Eddie Bauer® Full Zip Microfleece Men’s & Women’s Jackets


The anti-pilling 100% polyester microfleece of Eddie Bauer’s Men’s and Women’s Full Zip Jackets provides warmth and comfort that is not easily matched without any of the bulk you would expect from such a cozy feel. Perfect for layering under another coat when temperatures are at their coldest or worn on its own from fall through early winter and then again in early spring. Featuring reverse coil zippers, front zippered pockets and open cuffs and hem, this fleece jacket can easily transition from business casual during the week to cool and casual on the weekend. A contrast Eddie Bauer logo can be found embroidered on the left sleeve of the men’s jackets and on the hem, at the base of princess seams, of the ladies’. This Eddie Bauer zip up certainly makes a strong argument for the fleece side.


Kelton Men’s & Women’s Color Block Track Jackets


In a final attempt to outshine all fleece jackets, our windbreakers are pulling out all the stops with the Kelton Men’s & Women’s Color Block Trade Jackets! With an outer shell constructed of 100% polyester twill with a water repellent finish and an inner lining of 100% polyester mesh with 100% polyester taffeta sleeves, it provides the ultra comfortable combinations of dryness and breathability. The diminishing contrast piping features give a cool, sporty look while autolock zipper pulls and concealed coil zipper pockets keep it sensible and convenient. Finally, an interior pocket with a velcro closure keeps your personal belongings just as dry and protected from the elements as your person. This may possibly be the game changer windbreakers needed in the great jacket debate.

The votes are in and it turns out the windbreakers and fleece jackets have come in with an even draw and everybody wins. That’s as long as your shopping at Health Promotions now, of course!
