Great if you know how to use it Despite its shaggy appearence, this is a very technical fleece built for very specific circumstances. If your thinking it will be like most other fleeces you own, you’ll be dissapointed.Its high loft fleece is made to be very breathable. As such it dries extremely fast and is perfect for layering. However it wont stop any wind or really any water. It will provide great wartmth under a shell and feels amazing for lounging around after a hard day on the mountain.Its cut for mountain climbing. This means a shorter torso for a harness, long arms and a very tight fit. I’m 6′ and 160 pounds and the medium fits perfectly. The sleeves area little tight. It has two waste pockets that are internal and one external chest pocket. It balls relatively small, but is not as some other fleeces I’ve used. The waste doesnt sinch at all, but I guess as un wind resistant as it is, it wouldnt really need to. And would work well if you had a belt or harness on.I got the…

Wonderfully warm and great for layering I’ve had this jacket for a few months now and I’ve gotta say, I wear it quite a bit now that winter’s approaching. The ONLY thing I don’t like about this jacket is that it’s not windproof. Not even a little. You can’t just throw this on over a T-shirt and stay warm, you’ll need some sort of long sleeves under it or a shell over it, the wind cuts right through so if you have exposed skin underneath then it will be exposed to cold winds. That being said, if you’re doing aerobic activities in cool/cold temps then you’ll be in great shape cuz it breathes so well, so two sides to that coin. Other than the wind thing (which I knew about before I bought the jacket and am not upset about, I understand that weight sacrifices and such had to be made to keep the jacket as light as possible), this jacket rocks. Super soft inside and out (but especially inside!), very very good at trapping body heat and keeping you warm, great athletic fit, just enough pockets, chin-protecting zipper garage…

Warm and soft This jacket’s synthetic “fleece” is velvet soft. The jacket is warm enough to wear as my only outer garment in freezing weather. On my monitor, the red color in the photograph looks very close to the actual color of the jacket, a nice, dark, sophisticated burgundy. The neck is soft and gentle on my skin, and the sleeves and waist are of generous lengths so that no chilly gaps uncover during moderate outdoor exercise. I like the feel of the material more, and I think the jacket is a little warmer, than Mountain Hard Wear’s “Wind Stopper,” which this jacket otherwise resembles. However, there is no additional, inner pocket on this jacket, which is the only feature I like better on the Wind Stopper.
