always look cool.

I love fleece jackets for running in cold weather, they allow me to stay warm without overheating. This jacket looks cool and fits well. I have an athletic frame, if you have more bulk this jacket will not fit you. This jacket will more or less fit people with an average/athletic frame.

This has been my first Black Yak purchase and liking it so far. I often by Norrona products, which are an athletic cut. This is cut just a titch larger, but without being bulky. I really like the high collar, longer waist cut (doesn't feel short and not too long) and the dual chest pockets. The zippers and pulls are very slim. The fabric stretches and moves well, but does have a little stiffer feel (I tend to like pure fleece and this is more of a soft shell. The cuffs are snug around the wrists without being too tight.

Pros: Unique look and brand, athletic fit, without being too tight

Cons: Slightly stiffer, soft shell fabric
