New fleece

After trying a half dozen different fleece jackets, this is my favorite. Light, packable, and warm. Probably not the most durable, though.

Decent but expected more for the price.

Bought this to replace my Monkey Man jacket, definitely runs smaller and not as soft as they used to be. The price was also a lot more than the previous fleece version. The color was also a bit different than online.

Has the right features, but would be so much more

I'm 156lbs, 6'0" slim athletic build and got a large and fits me well. I normally wear Large across most brands. Some things that I liked: 1) I own sherpa pieces from canada goose, patagonia, gap and I have to say that this is the softest I've felt on a jacket even though its synthetic. Its seriously soft. 2) The cuff design, right below when you put your wrist down on table, is a perfect edition. 3) Love the YKK zippers all around the jacket, you can definitely feel the quality in them. 4) Color is amazing, color changes under different lighting, its so fun to wear and versatile. Some things I would love to have: 1) Waist area is loose which isn't bad, but when I do need a tighter fit, having an adjustable drawcord at the waist line would help. I actually like the relaxed fit and it doesnt expose skin when you raise your arms up. 2) I think it would be great if it was a little thicker. Maybe 2 ply piece instead of 1.

Wish I Hadn't

I bought this in the browny gold colour last spring, and I gotta say, I've only become more disappointed in the fleece as time has gone by. If you used to own a Monkey Man and are hoping this will be similar, man, are you in for a let down.The Monkey Man was thicker, warmer, with a much better cut. I could wear my MM almost all winter, and I'm talking northern BC, not Vancouver. It kept out the wind and the tight cuffs on the sleeves kept the warmth in. This new piece has none of those features. The cuffs are useless, so baggy they might as well not exist. Material is thin, more for show than for function. There is absolutely no wind protection, it provides about as much protection as a light hoody, but one that cost you 240 bucks. Wearing this thing gets cold by around 8 degrees celsius, anything below that, you need additional layers. Last thing I'll mention is the cut of the design. It seems like it was designed to fit over a box, not a human with a chest and a waist and shoulders. What I'm saying is that the jacket just hangs off you shoulders and is loose on the waist. There is no way to tighten the waist of the coat. I'm a 34 inch waist, not a tiny 28, and I'm swimming in this thing. I'm 6 feet, almost 200 lbs, so I chose a large, and this fleece is absolutely massive. One last little nitpick, the zipper is super weird. When I sit down, it bulges out in a massive arc and looks absolutely ridiculous. If you can't tell, I'm disappointed. You might be thinking, why not return it? I wanted to give it chance, hoped it would grow on me, but it's gone the other way. My loss.

Doesn't Fit Like The Monkey Man

It's a bummer MH changed the fit of these from the original Monkey Man - this newer Polartec High Loft Jacket is several inches shorter in the torso and arms. The zipper on this one is also rigid, whereas the zipper on the original Monkey Man was more flexible and sat better with the lightweight of the fabric. Love the fabric, just wish the fit was closer to the original.

Great jacket, but I miss the old style

This is a great jacket, but like some of the other reviews mention, there are some departures from the old style of that jacket that I'm not super fond of. In particular, I wish that the wrists were not so loose. The old style really hugged around the wrists, and this style does not, and I don't think it looks quite as good.
