Comfortable and Flattering

This coat is so comfortable and flattering. It's attractive enough to wear to work and warm enough to wear for long weekend walks in Oregon in the Winter. On the occasions that I was caught walking in the rain, I stayed warm even soaked to the skin. I wore this 4-5 times a week all winter and it still looks great. It's true to size. I'm at the higher end of the size small measurements, so I ordered the small and found that this was comfortable even over two layers. I'm sold on the Merino Real Fleece. I can't think of a single con.

Very nice

This fit is very cute and slimming for around town, and warm, and good as an under layer for back country skiing. Really like it!

I love Hoodies and this one is warm and has class. It is a bit fitted so it feels feminine too. I highly recommend it. Fit true to size.

Best gear purchase of 2010

I'm an Icebreaker junkie, and when I found out they were making this "real" fleece, I couldn't wait to get my hands on one. I usually wear a small in IB, but this piece seems to run a touch smaller, and it's quite fitted, so I went to the M. It was a bit long in the sleeves, but first washing (in cold water, no dryer) took care of that. I live in NW British Columbia, and I've lived in this jacket since I bought it. In fact, I'm wearing it as I write this!!!! Great all season layering piece! Can't wait to see if they bring out more "real" fleece.

Best Hoodie ever

I absolutely adore this jacket. It is insanely comfortable, super soft, super warm, and just all-around amazing. The fit is very form fitting, and as others have said it runs a tiny bit small--I'm usually somewhere in between a medium and a small depending on the item from icebreaker, and the medium is a bit tight around the shoulders. It bothered me at first but after about a day of wear it seems to have loosened up a bit. Its cut does make it extremely flattering. I don't think I've ever owned a hoodie that made me look thinner before. All around an awesome piece of gear.

For reference: I'm 5'6", 140lbs, and the medium fits me snugly.

When it's right, it's niiiiice

Review update:
Previously I said this jacket had some serious issues with its cut. Well, considering the inevitable garment-to-garment variations during manufacturing, I exchanged the garment I had for a new one. I've since been living in this jacket for days. Here are my thoughts:

[ Fabric ] The fabric for the Igloo is niiiiice. The outer is smooth, the inside is fleece (merino wool fleece). While the fleece isn't quite as teddy-bear soft as the really nice polyester stuff, over a thin shirt it's not noticeable at all. The fabric is also substantial, so the jacket as a whole is soft and warm. It's the first Icebreaker jacket I've actually liked.

[ Cut ] I am 5'4", measurements 34" - 28" - 38", and ordered a small. Aside from the inconsistencies in cut from garment to garment (Icebreaker, quality control pleeeease), the jacket does look sharp. The cut however seems to be meant for street wear, as the sleeve-to-shoulder section is cut similarly to a pea coat (not raglan sleeves). Therefore, the arm mobility is not stellar. The waist area is smaller than I would have expected, so if you're a bit bulgy in the middle, consider ordering a size up. The arms are nice and long, but not too wide -- I don't think I'd even try to wear anything thick underneath. The hood, once zipped, is tight, but not uncomfortably so. Overall, I'd say this jacket is form-fitting but not skin-tight. It's definitely an outer full-zip sweater-jacket layer.

[ Color ] The color "divine" is a deep purple and more feminine than the Icebreaker color "Java". The "merlot" trim is medium-deep a grape purple. The hood is lined in the "merlot" fabric. The pockets are lined in the "divine" fabric. The zipper itself is "divine", but the unzipped portions have a "merlot" trim. I was surprisingly pleased with this color combination -- Icebreaker is definitely improving its color selection (IMO).

[ Verdict ] This has become my THE full-zip sweater-jacket. I love that this garment is much more robust than a cashmere full-zip, and much more normal-looking than any other sport-zip I've found. I'd definitely recommend giving this jacket a try, and I hope that Icebreaker comes out with many more fleece jackets in the future.

Runs really small

I normally wear a L or XL in Icebreaker clothing, and love everything I have (Rio pants, many long-sleeve shirts, underwear). I got an XL in this and it is more like a medium, no chance of even zipping.

Great Jacket!!

I just got this jacket for the fall and so far, i love it! It is by far the best fleece jacket I've ever had! I've had a few North Face fleece jackets in the past and decided to branch out a bit and am very happy with my choice! The icebreaker fleece is much thicker and warmer but also more flexible than the northface fleece. I love, love, love this jacket!
The only thing I dont like about it is the zipper sometimes gets stuck at the bottom.
