"My PERFECT Hoodie"
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: XL
Ok, this thing is perfect, i'm pretty sure. Even down to the way they sewn the shoulders, to make it more comfortable with a pack, or reaching. But, definitely order one size above normal, or you will feel like an overweight American. And just put some zipper pull tabs on it, I used other brands---that were EVEN less money, so what's up Houdini?...drop the ten cents and put some decent zipper pulls on here to make someone like me not point it out. The hood fits PERFECT and I love the double thickness of it, that helps kick up the heat. It layers nice, i didn't think it would be that comfortable because of sizing up, but it didn't effect the layering at all. The only negative accept about this midlayer, is, if it gets totally soaked, it will be very hard to dry, in the environment. But, what midlayer wouldn't have some issues if its totally soaked right? The $250 price tag is about as much as I would pay for the item, because it is still just fleece. But a very plush, stretchy, durable, breathable, warm, very well made fleece. If you think about the Pat R1 being $159, the cost of this is about right because of the adjustable hem, and hood..Some extra material and zipper pockets. Ok, I figured I should write a review because it is so comfortable and warm I haven't let go of it since it was delivered. I don't think someone will even get the opportunity to pick it up, let alone try and give it a new home! I kinda liked the idea of putting my own zipper pulls on it, because I was able to give it some of my own character, at $200, this jacket will be with me for many years ahead. Easy 5 stars, would buy again.
