This fleece hoodie has a storied history and a pretty exciting future.
No one knows whether Wiktor Haglöf knew in 1914, when he finished hand-sewing his first batch of backpacks, that the brand bearing his name would be creating world-class outdoor gear 100 years later. Whether he knew then or not, if he could see the Haglöfs Women's Pile Q Hooded Fleece Jacket now, he'd be pretty stoked about it. This classic hoodie, made from heavy Polartec fleece fabric, offers tons of warmth without tons of bulk. The Pile Q rocks some smartly designed features like articulated sleeves and offset seams to give you tons of comfort and mobility for your late fall hiking trips, January powder runs, or aprés-ski antics.

- Q & A
Odd fit & smell
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Exsmall
This jacket is ok on looks. Bit over priced for quality considering I found a North face pullover Sherpa better price ( 1/2 price from north face site)better material, better fit , even better color. Plus this one had a VERY strong chemical smell when it arrived. I washed it thought it was gone but it came back couple hours later.
Length is very nice. but I ordered an exsmall super tight through bust and I'm only 34 B 5 6" 112 lbs. so that's pretty small for size. Also big in shoulders and I have fairly broad shoulders. Enough so that on occasion have to order medium to accommodate them.
Overall would not recommend this item.
I'm 5 foot 8 and usually wear L or XL. The XL for this jacket had incredibly long sleeves and yet I couldn't zip it up across the chest! It would probably fit someone who is very tall but not curvy. Nice fabric otherwise.
Wrong size sent-3 stars for the material
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I ordered the pink jacket in size Large when it was on sale. I received size Small, so it was obviously too small. Anyhow, I loved the thick warm fuzzy material and pink color. I live in Alaska so I had to pay all shipping charges. I am so disappointed I did not have a chance to try on the right size. And because of the shipping charges I will not order another one.
This is the next-gen fleece!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Small
This fleece is the next gen of the old basic fleeces. It has the look of a sheerling fleece and is so comfortable. It's a little bit longer than usual (definitely will cover your rear) so it's perfect to pair this with some leggings after the gym or a casual day out on the town. Definitely recommend this piece!
