This has been yet another odd winter in Illinois. There was a time you could expect November through March to be two things: cold and snow covered. Weather just isn’t like that anymore. Now we’re lucky to get a couple inches of snow and there is the occasional week of weather I would almost describe as warm. When it’s 60 degrees outside and the typical high is only 35 degrees, that’s warm!
But that’s not a complaint. It just means I get to throw my bulky winter coat back in the closet and enjoy the freedom of wearing something a bit lighter. Like this Liberty Fleece jacket from Free Country.
It’s constructed with mostly fleece that’s warm, fuzzy and cozy against the skin, especially when you’re wearing a short sleeve shirt underneath. Then there’s Taslon Core overlays and cuff patches that provide extra protection from harsh winds and wetness.
My favorite feature is the front zipper pocket that’s perfect for my little tube of Carmex, car keys and debit card. Rather than lug my purse out I can put all of my essentials in there.
That extra pocket leaves the two fleece, side pockets free for my hands. When the wind is blowing 20 mph and the temperature is dropping into the 40′s, it’s a cozy spot to keep your hands warm.
Currently priced at just $30, I think it’s a wise jacket choice to get you through the last few weeks of winter and into the cool Spring months. For more outwear options, visit FreeCountry.com to see the selection.
