Windproof Fleece

Just thought I'd let everyone know about a good deal. I found Windproof fleece at Target. Top and bottoms costing 29.95 ea. I road 6 miles with them on Friday. Conditions were 32 Degrees, 8 mph wind, light snow/rain. All I had on underneath was cycling shorts and a short sleeve dri fit t. Kept almost too warm. Can't wait for colder weather. They also carry a great balacava, in the spoting goods area, that has a small opening for the nose and mesh over the mouth. Can't wait to try it out. I have always had problems beathing while covering my mouth and nose with solid ones.

Hi,
Lands End has a really nice windproof fleece jacket for $50. They are popular enough that they are also backordered in my size. They have them at Sears as well, although those are mostly gone too. So I will trundle of to Target, and see what those look like, thanks.

Thanks for the tip. I don't have a Target nearby, but I'm going to send my sister-in-law over to the Target close to her and scam it off her for Christmas!

One thing- is the name of the fleece called "Windproof" or do you see the name on the tag so we can get the correct fleece?

Thanks,

The brandname is Prospirit. They have a round red sticky tag on the outside that states "Windproof".

Went to Target today and picked one up. Won't be able to try it out until the week-end at least. They didn't have any women's. so had to buy mens. Thanks for the tip.

See if you can order it from the website if you couldn't get it at your local store. They probably have more variety on their website anyway.

Whoops... skip it! I just checked the walmart.com website, and they don't sell clothes- not even in the sports and fitness section!
