I wanted to love this fleece, however first off, the sleeves were too short. I have long arms, so that may not be a problem for everyone, but i'd say I have an average length torso, still it was a bit short. There is a different material on the wrists and collar that is a bit odd, but i could have lived with that. Otherwise so soft and great color (bramble). I'm returning it. I'm 5'6 and ordered the small. The medium would have like been too big across the shoulders.
very warm and comfortable but...
I really like the feel of this jacket. This is an extremely warm fleece. The lining is "furry" fleece which feels luxurious on the skin but it makes it somewhat difficult to slide my long sleeve Ibex shirts into the sleeves. I love the color and styling. I usually like to wear my jackets a little loose, but I would say this jacket runs large. I ordered a medium and I could have probably been comfortable in a small. I am 5'4" and weigh 112-115lbs. I like the bramble color.
change back mountain hardware
I loved my first jacket. The fit was excellent. However, within the first month the stitching came undone from the sleeve. I sent it back for a replacement and the new one I received was not the same! Apparent mountain hardware changed the cut of their jackets in the middle of production. I was a perfect small before. The new small I received was too tight across the shoulders and tiny in the wrists. Definitely not as comfortable as the original. Tried a medium because I love this jacket. However, it was too big! Sadly I cannot wear this jacket anymore because of the new fit. Change back, Mountain Hardware!
is this jacket completely lined with fleece?...
is this jacket completely lined with fleece? I see it at the neck, but is it all the way through the body and arms?
I think so but you might want to chat with someone at Backcountry to make sure.
Jen. The jacket is made completely of fleece so I guess the answer is... yes. I think what you are referring to is the high loft fleece around the neck. This high loft fleece is around the neck only and not through the sleeves but again the jacket is made completely of high density relatively windproof fleece. I hope this info helps!
I saw this jacket at REI and it is a really nice lined with fleece jacket. It is a soft plush fleece but different than something like the North Face Osito .
