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
- Made using 29% recycled polyester
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!

Sustainability and Product Care
How It Is Made
Polygiene® Stay Fresh
Polygiene® Stay Fresh technology inhibits the growth of pong-causing bacteria, extending your tee’s lifespan and meaning you can wear it more and wash it less. Wearing your tee just one more time before washing can save huge amounts of CO₂ and water over its lifespan.
Where It Is Made
Our products are made in the best factories in the world. We know the factories personally and they have all signed up to our Code of Ethics in our supply chain. This includes the Ethical Trading Initiative base code, fair pay, safe working environments, no child labour, no modern slavery, no bribery or corruption, no materials from conflict zones and humane farming methods.
Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.

How to measure
This size chart indicates the body measurements our garments are designed to fit. Measure yourself as described below and use the size chart to find your size.
Measure around your chest at the widest part. The tape measure should pass under your arms and be level from front to back.
Measure around your waist at the narrowest point.
With your arms relaxed by your side, tilt your head down and ask a friend to measure from the bone at the base of your neck, over your shoulder and down your arm to the fold at your wrist.
Close fitting designed to conform to your body.
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.
