  • EMS Women's Northshield 1/4 Zip Fleece

    Technical hybrid construction and stretch mobility make the Northshield ideal for Nordic skiing, cool and cold weather running, and other highly aerobic winter activities. The front has been engineered to provide a windproof, water-resistant barrier where you need it, while fleece-lined jersey on the back delivers breathable, moisture-wicking comfort. Runners and cross country skiers can wear just a base layer underneath in most winter conditions.

    Features/Benefits:

    • Front, top of sleeves, and shoulders:
      ~ 2-way stretch soft shell fabric with PU laminate and DWR finish for windproof protection, water resistance, and freedom of movement
      ~ Polyester tricot lining protects windproof laminate and provides next-to-skin softness
    • Back and side panels, underarms: 4-way stretch polyester/spandex jersey with brushed fleece interior for moisture management, breathability, and mobility
    • 12 in. reverse-coil zipper with draft flap, zipper garage, and semi-locking slider for easy on/off, ventilation, and nonchafing comfort
    • Horizontal set-in thumbholes at sleeve cuffs for hand warmth
    • Angled chest pocket with semi-locking, reverse-coil zipper and zipper garage
    • Back pocket at right side hem with concealed vertical zipper
    • Reflective tape at front zipper and chest pocket for low-light conditions

              I love this product. I am tall and it is often difficult for me to find shirts, fleeces, etc. that are long enough for me. This is loosely fitted and very comfortable. I ran in 32 degree, windy weather with one layer underneath it and was very comfortable. I would say for those who have a small frame, they might find this to be a bit big, so by a size smaller.

              Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Northshield 1/4 Zip Fleece:

              I am a collegiate rower, so I bought this for morning practices when it is still dark and near freezing temperatures. It is very easy to see on the water and it is super warm without adding bulk. If I wear a compression layer under, I can get through an entire practice at +/- 30 degrees without ever getting cold, even if that includes getting wet.

              I also have used it on runs and training bike rides and it has been great. The windproofing is a wonderful touch that makes this by far one of my best and favorite pieces.

              Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Northshield 1/4 Zip Fleece:

              Used for early spring hikes or runs.
              Flexible construction doesn't bind but it is close through the chest. Mole holes keep sleeves in place and protect back of paws from cold spring wind and rain. Collar height and construction stop invading winds but allows for zip down cool off. EMS products and pricing are always reliable and reasonable.

                      I could not wait to try out this top. I have worn it running in about 30 degree weather quite comfortably. Another reviewer said that it is "stiff;" that's the material that blocks the wind and it is not uncomfortable at all. It moves comfortably with me as I run. The wind does not cut through the front of this top but it does breathe otherwise. The zipper pockets and monkey holes are also requirements for me. It's definitely a worthwhile purchase.

                            I returned product because the feel was unpleasant. Too stiff . I don't know how it would have worn because I didn't keep it. This is a first for me with EMS. I love most of the products and I shop at EMS frequently.
