I love this jacket, it is regular fit, warm; I like that it is not bulky but it has room enough for using it as a mid-layer. I purchased the cristalline heather color thinking it was gray but it is actually light purple.

Cool cardigan

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Gave this to my mom and she loves it. The fabric is super soft, warm, and wicks moisture. Looks great as a technical piece or casual night out on the town.

A warm feminine jacket that fits!

I bought this jacket in Large thinking it probably would be big and blocky like all other brands since I usually have to go up a size because of my wide athletic shoulders, long arms and waist (5’11 rower here). This commonly leaves an unflattering box shape depsite my relatively trim waist. I was pleasently suprised to find this jacket fit my arms, shoulders and hips but with a nice feminine curve to actually show my waist. This all confirmed my decision to keep the jacket since it could now double as a warm funcitonal jacket while backpacking as well as wearing out day to day without looking like a PCT’er popping into town. Thanks for making a jacket to fit a girl that’s active and as always making it top notch quality!

I gave this to my mother as a gift and this is what she had to say: "This a fantastic jacket that fits me well, not too short, not too long. The lining is sooo soft, I love it. I use this jacket for casual occasions and the look and slimming fit are great. I highly recommend this jacket."

I got this as a gift for a friend and she loves it! A medium seems to fit well on her. It's on the more fitted side, so if you're looking to layer a bunch underneath, then maybe size up. It's a beautiful sweater on par with Patagonia's Better Sweater, but in my opinion has more structure and looks a little nicer (of course it costs a bit more as well). Would work great as a mid-layer for winter hiking or to just wear around the house or office.

A bit baggy

Ended up returning it because it was too baggy/loose for my girlfriend.

I bought this fleece on a cold humid day at Whistler when I just couldn't get warm. Sure enough, it didn't take long and I was toasty..... Since then I've used this fleece for many many different activities other than skiing including road trips, flights, dog walking, cold winter sunday morning brunches in pjs, etc..... It fits well - skims the body - and not tight anywhere. I can easily wear a light layer underneath with no problem. As well as a layer on top since it's not bulky like some fleeces are. It hits at your hip so not too long it gets in the way and not too short that you expose lower back or belly when you lift up your arms. It has a useful left top-of-arm pocket as well as side hand warming pockets. It's soft, stretchy so you can move easily and it comes in great colors (I have azulene). The only downside with it is that if you sweat enough in it, it will smell afterwards and need washing. So it's not great for repeated hard activity wearing unless you don't care about being smelly. You can easily throw it into the machine though and it dries quickly (I hang to dry).

I purchased this about two months ago and so far am very happy with it - comfortable, warm but breathable, in my limited experience technical enough for active pursuits (it has been hiking, running, & cross-country skiing), but nice enough looking to wear out to (a casual) dinner. I bought it primarily as a warm around-the-house layer, as I work from home but don't like to over-heat and waste energy. It is perfect for this, it provides a lot of warmth without being stiff or bulky. Too early to really speak to durability, but so far no signs of wear after nearly daily use for two months including one machine wash (on delicate setting, air dried). On sizing, I am 5'4" and 125 lbs athletic build, a small in most brands but sometimes a medium in Arc'teryx. I tried on both the small and medium and had a hard time deciding. I went with the medium to allow for more layering (with a long sleeve shirt plus heavy sweater underneath the sleeves on the small were a touch snug). Only thing I would change is that the sleeves are a bit long for me on the medium (though at 5'4" I don't have terribly long arms).

This is my absolutely favorite fleece to wear in cold weather. What i love: 1) extremely warm, but breathable and quick drying. Very stretchy so you can have full range of movement. Also, while it's not listed as wind resistant, it definitely cuts the edge off of the wind. 2) doubles as an outer layer on warmer days. 3) great for so many activities.... hiking, biking skiing, mountaineering, climbing, or even just hanging out. 4) LOVE the full zipper, easy on/off, temperature adjustment etc 5) the fit is relaxed - good extra room on body and arms to layer up, but still attractive on 6) lots of colors to choose from True to size.

Runs small

kind of a weird fit...the body of it is too wide and too short, and the sleeves are almost too short. i feel like if i went the next size up, the body would be way too wide, so the fit is just strange. also, if you have pets, this thing attracts fur better than a swiffer. just buy one that matches your cat or you'll look homeless.

Zinfandel color is beautiful, fabric is soft, quality is excellent. I wanted a trimmer fit, and the small fits well on my 34A-27-37 frame, with room for a thin longsleeve baselayer underneath. The bottom hits at mid-hip level. I'll be using this jacket for hiking, winter-wear beneath a shell, and everyday use.

Loveit!!!!

I love this jacket, It is soft, light and warm. I wear it all the time, it is the right length, just below my hips. I ordered L, I am 5'7' and I like the fit.
