I love this jacket in Graphite Gray, what a beautiful, versatile color. I tried it on at a North Face store early in the season and haven't seen anything else I liked. It's soft but not too shaggy like some of the other fleeces. The collar is a little strange at first but I saw it a few weeks ago again on a girl at the store and it was cute! Kind of a 70's tracksuit feel but not tacky. I will use it fully zipped to walk and ski. I'm 5'9" and this is the best fitting North Face item I have ever owned (I've owned tons - Denali, Masonic hoodie, Oso hoodie, Windwall II, Aconcagua coat, a ski shell and a couple of vests), it is so flattering and I think true to size. Usually the arms fit and torso doesn't or vice versa. Saw some photos of it on a model and the collar extends past her shoulders - it doesn't on me, looks much more normal, so I'm thinking it looks better if you are broad shouldered!
