For all purposes
I love this jacket! It is an upgrade from the standard North Face Denali. I was looking for a nice fleece, unlike the millions of North Face's that walk the streets and hallways of my high school. I heard that Patagonia's were high quality. I have had mine for a month now and have not been disappointed. It keeps out the wind better than a simple fleece due to the inside lining. This lining makes the jacket a bit stiff, but it is still extremely comfortable. I am 5'7" with a small/medium sized chest and the medium fits great. The jacket is fitted, so those who don't want a snug fit, shouldn't be looking at this jacket. Going up a size won't change the fitted aspect of it. I only wish it were a little bit longer. Other than that, I would buy one in every color! Great product!
