Wife loves it

My wife really loves this- soft, warm, and cute. That's her evaluating criteria. I have to add that the hi-loft fleece exterior looks as though it's as warm as it is supposed to be, and it does make it soft. My wife loves the excessive elastic cuff portion on the sleeves, and the longer collar for helping to seal in the heat. The non-fleece fabric (pocket and under collar) appears to be Polartec's Powerstretch which is also soft and very comfortable due to it's stretch. My wife prefers this less as a technical piece as she does for a replacement for a go to sweat shirt like item; plus this has a full length zipper. She uses it both on cooler nights in the warmer seasons and then all the time in the cold season. The only gripe was that given her longer arms she had to size up to a medium rather than use the small due to her preferring that the sleeves are long enough vs preferring the torso was snug. She's 5'7" thin, athletic build, so that's common.
