Polartec Classic 100 fray
Best Active Wear Fleece
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
This fleece is fantastic? I have lots of gear and equipment. I do everything from Climbing, Hiking, and Snowboarding. This is the fleece to wear when you are "active". It is not the fleece for sitting around. I have the black fleece and have noticed that it faded a bit after heavy washing. However, it fits well (athletic build) and has become very comfortable like a favorite blanket.
Best fleece around
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Warm, soft, perfect fit. This fleece has everything you could want. I have broad shoulders and this fleece still fits me properly. It feels like it is custom made and I have gotten compliments on it. I am 5'11" and I ordered a medium.
Very light, comfortable and fit well
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
I usually put on fleece or hoodie in the office but they too thick, heavy and bulky. The Delta LT is perfect over a t-shirt for indoor use. I used it once for groceries shopping in the evening and perfect for California fall weather. Fits well over T-shirt but not over working shirt since it is slim fit. I am wearing to office for casual Friday :-) Love the color, the material and very comfortable for indoor use.
Nice layering piece
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Great all around fleece. Nice design and details in the construction. Typical 100wt fleece that is perfect from wearing around the house to an underlayer under a shell. Slim cut means if you like a baggier fit size up. long arms which is nice since a lot of fleeces by other companies tend to ride up my monkey arms.
What is the difference between the Delta...
What is the difference between the Delta LT and the Cardigan Caliber? They seem to use the same material.
The Delta LT and Cardigan Caliber are indeed made of the same Polartec Classic 100 Micro Velour fleece material. The differences between the two are subtle and mostly aesthetic. The main difference is the Delta LT is a bit lighter and has a slimmer fit.
Delta is made of a waffle fleece and is a touch thinner by feel than the micro velour fleece on the Caliber. For spring '13 the caliber gets a makeover and new fleece fabric.
Chris is correct that the Delta fits slimmer.
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
I bought this as a gift, so I didn't get a chance to use it, but this fleece was incredibly nice... as is everything from Arc'teryx. It's definitely nice enough to where in places where you're supposed to be dressed nicer than an average climbing bum.
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This jacket is great for layering. Definitely wicks away moisture and has great temperature control.
You seem very familiar with...
You seem very familiar with Arc'teryx products. Maybe you can answer my question. I recieved this Delta lt jacket and the cuffs are fairly loose (not much smaller than the arm itself). The cuff rests loosley on the top of my hand unlike my my Delta AR which is much snugger. Can you assure me this is the way the cuffs are supposed to fit? Thanks for your input.
That's how the cuffs on my Delta LT fit. I switched to a Caliber Fleece. Same fabric but a better fit for me and elastic cuffs.
How is the fit of the men's Delta LT...
How is the fit of the men's Delta LT full-zip jacket compared to the Arcteryx Caliber cardigan. I have a Caliber cardigan in size M and fits well, though a size S would probably fit me too. I'm 179cm (5'11") tall, 66 kgs (145 lbs), chest 94 cm (37"). Thanks, Steve
The Delta LT is a bit trimmer fit than the Caliber. I would think a Medium would be your size, unless you're going for a very close fit.
Thanks. So you think the S might be rather too tight?
Very light insulation, but perfect for just the right conditions
The irony of this fleece is that the conditions that make it useful are not life-threatening, and a generally nothing more than a bit uncomfortable. Its a great layering piece, but its best use is just throwing it over a t-shirt or over your shoulder for a quick hike or a night out when you know that you might be a little chilly later.
It breathes very well, and is a great choice for high energy activities when you might start out chilly but know you'll warm up. The fit is great, athletic as always, since its Arcteryx. Though, that also means its a little pricey.
I'm not sure I've seen many fleeces that are this lightweight and fill this niche. Its not for everyone, but when you find the sweet spot for this fleece you'll keep coming back to it for just that right amount of warmth.
Light and Great!
Perfect mid-layer, or for use in the pub apres, just right for when there is a slight chill and you don't want a sweater or anything bulky. (Imagine a loose fitting long underware top with a zipper.)
This jacket has revised my definition of comfortable. When I wear it, I'm always the perfect temperature. It fits close without clinging, it doesn't ride up when I reach up, there is no bulkiness or extra fabric to get in the way, and everyone compliments the styling. It's one weakness is that the collar isn't lined and the fabric doesn't take kindly to razor stubble. It's a small price to be this comfortable though.
