Description

The Griffon is a lightweight addition to your layering system, great for chilly days at high cadence on the bike or as a super breathable midlayer under a windproof or shell. It’s the perfect weight for not-quite-so-balmy UK summer evenings at the crag or campsite.

  • Grid fleece traps lots of warmth without weight or bulk
  • Highly breathable and fast-drying for layering
  • Polygiene® anti-odour treated to wear more and wash less

The lightweight and highly breathable fleece punches above its weight in warmth by trapping loads of air with its voided grid back structure, letting you dump heat like a demon. A Polygiene anti-odour treament stops your fleece ponging, meaning you can wear it more and wash it less — pretty handy on multi-day trips.

The full-length zip makes for easy layering and allows you to control the warmth as your activity level changes. The hood means you can leave your hat at home, knowing if the wind picks up on your hike you can get your ears covered and carry on moving with no fuss.

Unobtrusive thumb loops are there if you need them (but are discreet if you don’t), and the zipped chest pocket allows you to stash some cash, keys or a card. With a smooth outer face and a two-tone look, it also serves well as a travel companion by sneaking in under the ‘you can’t wear a fleece out to dinner’ radar!

Fit Guide
Tight Slim Regular Relaxed
Close fitting designed to conform to your body shape. Slim and slightly contoured but not form fitting. A comfortable fit that's not too tight, nor too loose. A looser fit with a bit more space but not too baggy.
