Acquiring a Melanzana Fleece Hoody is about as difficult as buying season tickets to the Boston Red Sox. And like the Sox, Melanzana has created a cult following for its uniquely styled designs. If you’re more interested in a functional fleece for backpacking than a stylish fleece for Instagramming, we recommend the Melanzana Micro Grid Hoody, which is offered in a lightweight technical fleece fabric that’s a good option to the Patagonia R1 Air Hoody for wearing under a shell layer while hiking in stormy, cold weather.
