Lightweight Fleece that thinks it is a Midweight

I usually where this as a midlayer. Honestly, when i first got it, I felt a bit ripped-off because it was light and thin. To my surprise, it is much, much warmer than it looks. I guess that is a thumbs-up to Polartec for the great fabric, and a high-five to Arc'teryx for making a midlayer that is technical for outside adventures, yet stylish enough for casual Fridays at work.

Agree completely. I use it as a mid-layer over hot chilli base. I've skied in very cold and windy conditions with only hot chilli, delta lt and a hard shell, and was warm. In warmer conditions it breathes well and keeps you dry. Get it and you will not regret it.
