We all know winter coats are essential when it comes to braving the harshest of elements but they're not exactly great for grocery shopping. That's where the fleece vest comes in. This warm winter wear may be sleeveless but if you ask us, that's one of the advantages.

Nothing beats an easy solution on a chaotic school day morning. Make life slightly easier and throw on a fleece vest before taking the kids to school.

Sorry, but nobody can be office-level productive while wearing their pajamas all day. Do yourself a favor and throw on a fleece vest the next time you work from home. Not only will it keep you feeling warm, comfy and productive, but it totally passes as clothes, so there's no way anyone can accuse you of lounging around on a work day.

With the versatility of the fleece vest you'll be able to take in the sights in comfort and style, whatever the weather.
At Lands' End we know life goes on – even when temperatures drop to freezing. Don't let the next cold front take you by surprise. Stay warm, cozy and flexible this winter with a little help from the fleece vest.
