I have a useful niche for the A2/G1...

by Carlos

 

Last winter I picked up an absurdly expensive high-grade fleece pullover to put the type on trial so to speak, using it for light outerwear in autumn/spring, and during winter as a warm-up layer indoors or an intermediate layer outdoors. Naturally the synthetic fleece has the annoying tendency to get dirty instantly somehow, but at least it is machine washable -- which I can't say for tweed sportcoats (I HATE having to go to the dry cleaners).

So I was just about to order up a bunch more of these overpriced fleece things, but now that I understand the proper role of the A2/G1 I could just substitute one of those, and it would require no care and last forever. That sounds like a plan.

For wear in real cold I would follow your example and go for one of those heavy-duty horsehide civilian jobs from Aero, or with my wool winter coats or my polar-grade parka.
