The Seeker ($85, http://www.stio.com/) is one of my favorite new fleece jackets on the market. The fit is comfortable and simple with a nice hood and zippered pockets where you need them. But the best part is that the jacket is made with high-end Polartec Wind Pro technical fleece, which is fuzzy and cozy on the inside, yet durable and wind- and water-resistant on the outside. I also dig the fact that it’s made of 50 percent recycled material — plastic bottles — and that I found it online for less than $70. That’s a really good deal for a jacket this high-quality.
