Maloja StailaM Women’s Fleece Jacket

Gearflogger reviews the Maloja StailaM women's performance fleece jacket
Maloja once again brings the looks to performance apparel with the StailaM women's fleece jacket. But not just any fleece; similar to the men's FtanM bonded wool jacket, the StailaM integrates merino wool with technical materials to produce a jacket that looks so great you'll be afraid to get it dirty.

But get it dirty you can, because the StailaM is a great fleece jacket apart from looks and technology. It's built with a very forgiving four-way stretch of 76% polyester/18% wool/6% spandex that will move with you whatever your activity. It's sized just a bit smaller, making it a close-fitting piece unless you want to size up, but we see that as a benefit as the insulation and breathability make it a fantastic layering piece under a hard shell if the weather turns against you.

The StailaM definitely qualifies as a minimalist jacket, with just a hem drawcord and two small handwarmer pockets with "invisible zips" that are still glove-friendly thanks to the long zipper pulls. We'd be remiss if we didn't mention the hood, which just feels great with the top-notch materials and stretch. The only thing we'd add is a full zipper garage flap at the chin, although in reality in use the absence is not that noticeable. So bottom line, if you're looking for a fleece jacket that's out of the ordinary in all the right ways, check out the StailaM.
