Nice but....

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Pros: it's light, nice athletic cut, warm for the weight, well made.

Cons: this fleece lacks the features to justify it's MSPR. It's a very basic garment. One feature I'd like to see on it is an elastic cord in the hem. I have a 31" waist and I hate it when midlayers flare out around the bottom. This does have a form fit out of the box, but who knows if that would hold true over time. The styling could use some upgrading to make it better suited as a light casual jacket for urban adventures.

As a midlayer it should work well. I'd re-buy it if I find it at a deep discount.
