The Highlander Hoodie will be a new staple in my layering game for multi-day and single day pushes. I tend to run warm but when you still need something to protect you from the chill most fleece layers don't offer enough breathability. This piece solves that problem with ease and still offers a look that is nice enough to jump around town in. I've strayed away from fleece layers on multi-day trips in the past due to the space they consume in your pack, however the Highlander packs down small and weighs nothing. It checks all the boxes for me.
The fleece is great, the color, build quality and warmth are all exceptional. I had ordered two of these in late November knowing they where due to arrive just before Christmas. One was a gift for my wife and one was a gift for me. I got an email around Dec 20 from Burgeon saying that with the postal service delays they where going to drive my order down to Rhode Island so I had them in time for Christmas. And that they did, I had them in plenty of time for Christmas via a personal delivery from Rudy. Looking forward to many adventures in our Burgeon gear.
This is a ridiculously comfy, cozy, soft hoodie. Very warm, particularly for the weight, but breathes well and pleasant to wear even when it's a little "too warm." That makes it a great midlayer for outdoors: I climbed Mt. Washington yesterday (17 degrees, winds 35 gusting 50) and it was my midlayer the whole time above treeline, comfortable when working hard on the uphill and toasty warm on the downhill. A single snap makes it easy to take on/off (even with gloves on) but closes things up around the neck.
Sizing is very similar to the Franconia. As a technical midlayer it runs pretty true to size; at 6'3" 220lb the large is a close but not tight fit over a baselayer. (Although I could wish for a tall size, the coverage is still fine.) For a comfy slouchy fit over street clothes, sizing up is recommended.
Customer service was excellent as a rep from Burgeon (Rudy) met me and dropped off the hoodie to me in person close to my house. Just wore it once as a second layer in 25 F with only a base layer underneath. Plenty warm for the 2.5 hour winter hike a asno comfortable. Quality seems excellent.
