About our brand
"With Fortress, you can wear less layers of clothing, and have less weight with a more dynamic temperature range. You can go from it being 50 degrees and jump into frozen Arctic water and have it be 20 degrees or 30 degrees outside and still feel comfortable.
-- Outdoor Media Company Owner
"The Fortress base layer was a game-changer. It allowed us to film on days that we normally wouldn't have been able to and we could stay out in the cold longer than the camera equipment could handle. That's when I was really sold on it. The battery life in our camera gear couldn’t keep up with Fortress. This is next-level stuff."
No Cold Chills!
"With other clothing, if you exert yourself at all and start sweating, you get cold. Fortress is incredibly unique. When you get wet, you stay warm.”
-- Outdoor Enthusiast
"I get tired of putting layers on and taking them off again. Fortress is
insulating and breathable at the same time, so it keeps you comfortable at a
wider range of temperatures -- even if you're exerting yourself and sweating
in the cold."
-- Peter SmithMt. Pleasant Ut
All of the planning, preparation and time it takes to play outdoors is totally worth
it – except when someone gets cold and you have to call it a day. Staying
warm, even when you’re soaking wet, allows you to continue to hunt, fish, camp and ride without having to sacrifice safety.Mt. Pleasant Ut
"You can think better when you're warm and not shivering and shaking. I've been
out in midwinter -- particularly in directing traffic. You focus a lot on
being cold instead of doing your job. Anytime you're distracted, you're more
prone to making mistakes or overlooking something that's important. I hated

"Fortress Clothing allows me to exert myself in the wilderness and sweat in the winter
time months, and not be concerned that I'm going to die of hypothermia,
versus cotton or any other type of material out there. Fortress Clothing
allows you to mitigate your body moisture, because even when it's wet, it
still heats me up, and I haven't found anything else that can even come

I recently purchased this vest for my Dad, 75 who is always feeling colder than everyone in the room. He loved the lightweight feel and the warmth throughout the day! He lives in this vest and has golfed, hiked, and even paired it under a blazer to wear at a few dressy engagements to keep him comfortable. He just loves it and recommends it to his active, senior community.
It's super light. Comfy, would recommend. It is pricy than most vests I would pay but I can tell the quality will last. Great customer service. Pretty easy to return if sizing is off.
Im happy with the vest; it's the most stylish Fortress piece i have. i work in a temp controlled room and this gives me the extra warmth i need under my jacket without having another set of sleeves restriction my movement. I used it outside a couple of times and it does provide alot of warmth for something sleeveless.
I love how warm you are using a product it’s very light so it’s packable
Probably the best vest I've owned comfortable on the body thin light and warm good for being in a vehicle all day and working outside
Only drawback would be that the collar is too tall because the vest fits tight it rubs under the chin when zipped up and makes hoods awkward to wear over without folding it down and the material isn't really made to do that properly. Hopefully if there's another version in the future this will be addressed
