I am a very cold person. I have bad circulation and I always have cold extremeties. Last year I bought socks and gloves from fortress. While those were amazing in themselves, I bought the base pro and the extreme. I have to say. I am impressed. It is just starting to get chilly where I live, and it has been getting cold at night. I have been wearing the pants and they are amazingly warm. The only thing with the upper body that I would change is that I probably should have gotten a size smaller. I am a slender person, so if you look at their size chart, you might want to get a size smaller. At least in my experience.
Finally a balaclava that I can use during late fall motorcycle rides. comfortable, fits under my helmet. Keeps me warm without fogging my shield.
Thank you Fortress.
Too warm these days to wear, but I immediately noticed the various features of "extra" quality/durability, that I've learned to expect as the norm, for years now, from all Fortress products.
jacket and gloves are very nice waiting till colder weather to try them they seem to be very well made. also thank you for the gift. i'm sure i will be ordering more stuff. thank you
Fortress Clothing is amazing! It is the best protection from the cold that money can buy!
Wore my 1/4 base pro on a very cold motorcycle ride, and did not get cold at all. This is the best base layer out there! Diffidently recommend if your out in the cold. Also customer was great answered my email in like 15 minutes! Great company great products! Oh and the socks are awesome too!!
The crew I purchased is hands down worth every penny!! My Husband and I ride Harley’s and when your on a bike you can hit some pretty bad weather and wind! This crew was exactly what I needed to stay warm! My husband has the quarter zip BasePro and he wouldn’t ride without it!! If your on the fence about purchasing at all I will say just buy it you won’t regret your decision!! I’m so grateful I found this company! The customer service is also amazing! If you have an issue they will take quick action to fix the problem!! So don’t wait to buy something from Fortress!!
Order to delivery time was very short! Clothing fit well and is comfortable to wear! Bring on the cold!
Right after purchasing my jacket I had to go to Minot, ND for work. Plane was delayed two hours and I landed after midnight following a major blizzard that had the airport closed previously for more than a day. The wind was blowing and it was about 14 degrees. Had to walk to outside a distance to my rental car - Point blank; I've never had a coat that I could actually feel the heat retention next to my body. Zipped it up, used the hood, and the jacket made the trip doable. I was amazed. So grateful to have this coat for the two week trip in the windy north country! You want to stay comfortable in notable cold weather get one of these coats.
Customer service was amazing and fast to respond when i had a deficiency. I work in the mountains and this base layer kept me warm in about 40 degree temperatures and raining... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
The product is very high quality. And very responsive and helpful people.
have tried it on and it seem bulky compared to my under armor but I will give it a go when I go pheasant hunting is South Dakota next winter.
I have only been able to try it out in the mildest weather in the 50s. It worked as advertised and I have great hope it is going to work well in the winter but haven't tried that out yet. The only fault I can say is the armpits are too tight and if the collar would lay down a little better. Otherwise I am very happy with my purchase. I look forward to maybe purchasing more products.
Love the BasePro Pant as an underlayer for skiing/snowboarding. The design is not only warm for a wide temperature range but also adds some padding that functions somewhat like padded shorts. The sizing was a bit weird - medium was too small and large was too large but still useable.
I've had a pair of the Extreme Mittens for a couple years and they have worked well, even on soaking wet days on the slopes. Had a chance to try on a pair of the Everest Mittens and immediately felt the difference in strength and warmth. On the really cold days they have performed so well I never needed hand warmers.
Really happy with the Fortress clothing and customer service. I often wear my base pro pants, 1/4 zip shirt and 2 shadow jackets, yes 2 shadow jackets, they are that comfortable. One for work to get really muddy and one for the rest of my " I hate being cold " life.
I haven't needed to use the pants so far because the weather hasn't been cold enough, but the shirt I have warn and I am very impressed. I also let my uncle who is 70 years old wear the shirt while snowmobiling and he also was impressed. I have mentioned this Fortress line of clothing to many people since my first purchase and I feel that some amount of them will invest at some time.
Haven’t had a chance
To use it yet I’m going to fish Alaska this year and will try to use
It . The coat is bulkier than I thought and may hay a problem fitting wet gear over it. In retrospect I probably would have been better off with tighter fitting under garment
I have to say though the coat is of very high quality and extremely well made
