- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
I really like how soft and comfortable the material is. I've been using it for a year and can see wear on the material just by washing or packing. I would not use it for rock climbing. I'm 5'10 190lbs and muscular and S is perfect, I like close fit.

How durable is the material for rock abrasion? And are the elbows articulated?
I wouldn't use it for rock climbing, I use it only for mountaineering and I can see it wearing it out after 1 year.
Great Mid Layer Top
I think Marmot has some fantastic colors and this top does not disappoint. On top of that the fleece they use is just warm enough while being low profile for layering with a base and a softshell. There are nose wipe zones on the cuffs, a high neck with zip, chest zip pocket and the stretch is no joke. For fit...I am 6' 2" 185 lbs. and have a large.

Can anyone compare this to the mountain hardwear microstretch fleece for me? key points of difference, if any?
Marmot Powerstretch fleece is 200 weight powerstretch all the way through. The Microstretch is 100 weight classic fleece (less wind resistant and not as stretchy), with stretch side panels. Powerstretch will be warmer and will work better as a standalone.
Great Fleece for Active and Casual
Excellent quality materials and construction. Very warm, looks great. Use it for trail running, hiking, casual. Would buy again - I have 2.

I need this in a Large assuming it would fit the same way as a Cloudveil Run Dont Walk Large - any options here?
I use this when biking or hiking in cold weather, and it really does the job. I prefer to wear it without an undershirt, as the material feels good against the skin and is moisture wicking. Fits tight, and works wonderfully under a larger coat. A word of warning though, if you're going to put an iphone in the pocket while you run, prepare for some left nipple chaffage.
