Arc'teryx Men's Gamma AR Jacket
Redesigned with new expedition-weight Fortius 3.0 fleece, the Arc'teryx Gamma AR Jacket for men doesn't pill or fray like some traditional fleece outerwear. That's because Arc'teryx designed their Gamma AR Jacket with a smooth outer softshell face and added abrasion-resistant panels along areas that usually encounter friction and eventual wear while hiking and backpacking. The fit is close and slightly shaped, so you can wear this water-resistant jacket over a synthetic outdoor or climbing pullover, a lightweight technical fleece inner layer, or your favorite casual travel clothing. This lightly insulated jacket has a moisture-resistant exterior and offers some wind protection, but the key trait is the highly breathable design. Arc'teryx designed their Men's Gamma AR Jacket for optimal breathability during high-impact aerobic activities, including climbing, trekking and backpacking.

Best Fleece out there
After picking up the Theta AR shell, I chose this fleece as the insulation for it. The fit is perfect and the mobility is great. Being 200wt Polartec, this jacket was enough to get me through a Northeast winter, but light enough for milder spring temps. If you get it wet, don't worry, it dries almost instantly. The sides are Malden Powershield and refuse to rip. If you plan on climbing with the jacket on, you'll like that it's cut higher in the front for a harness. There really is no flaw with this jacket, but at first I didn't like the pockets cut low. I thought they kinda got in the way of a backpack hip belt, but with a little adjusting, there is no problem. If you need a good fleece, this is the one you should get.

I live in this jacket -- I turn the thermostat down to justify keeping the jacket on indoors -- if I open the windows too and get the temp down towards freezing I can sleep in it as well. I'll need to buy another in a different color soon, since folks are growing suspicious of my hygiene. Seriously: it's a very very comfortable, well cut, warm, easy-to-move-in, easy-to-live-in piece of clothing. I got mine two months ago from Altrec for $82.97. Wherefore the price hike, Altrec? Are you trying to test your customers' loyalty? (Don't you dare edit out that last bit! Just trying to keep you on your toes...)
