I wanted to love this sweater. The grey and yellow are so beautiful together, and it's soft and yummy. But the shape is too weird. It's cropped, but also a dolman style sleeve which is really poofy, too. It ultimately sort of sits like a balloon on your body. I tried it on three times trying to convince myself it was a keeper. Ultimately, it went back.

Bought this in wine color last season and another in the cosmic blue this season. Colors are super flattering, the cowlneck lays really well, and the shape of the top is attractive with both jeans and leggings. One day I pulled the neck up around my head like a hood when I was traveling in the car and needed the sun off my face. It looked great! A very nice boho meets romantic style top. I imagine the white would be lovely, but enough is enough. LOL. It is true to size for Free People, which always seems to run a tad large.

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 0"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: 10

I bought these in a size 10. I've gained a few pounds so I figured I'd buy it in a 12. The 12 fits smaller than the 10, and the proportions are all wrong. Then I realized I did the same sizing thing a couple years ago with the same weird results. Turns out the 12 runs smaller than the 10. So when I say it runs true to size, I say that for the 10. The 12 feels two sizes too small. I am short in height (5' 0") and very curvy. So, after the 10/12 debate, I decided the 10 would work just fine. I used it on a trip to Maine wearing them almost every day. They do stretch out, but when you wash them they regain their shape. They are super durable, super comfy, wash and dry easily and quickly, and are really great pants for all kinds of outdoor activities, from light hiking to kayaking.

Fit: Runs small

I bought this in both XS and S. I'm 5 feet tall and 115 lbs. Both sizes were very tight in the arms, especially the upper arms. I don't have large arms and don't consider my build athletic. But it doesn't seem cut for someone who's not thin and tall. Fun green plaid color and love the concept. Just didn't fit right.

Wore it in Yellowstone and the Tetons in variable temps/weather. Worked just by itself and with layers under and over it. Also helped against mega winds. I'm 5' 0" about 120 lbs. and the small fit well. XS looked better (less boxy) but didn't give me any room for layers or to move freely. Tried both white and tobago blue. The feathers showed through in the white. Kept the blue. It's beautiful. And it rolls up teeny tiny. I've hunted for the right jacket for several seasons. Bought. Returned. Bought. Returned. This is a keeper!

this sweater was hideous. it's not as earthy as it looks for starters. then, there is soooo much billowy material that for a petite height (5 ft.) it falls in all the wrong places. ordered smallest size and it's still crazy. yet the arms are incredibly tight and there's no room for something underneath. so it's too big AND too small. if you have hips and are not model height, you will likely look like a clown in this getup.

pretty colors and soft. ordered XS but the sleeves are very tight and long. my arms aren't thick for my size (5ft). the color block seam on the sleeves at the pink/brown fall right at the thickest part of my upper arm. the armpits pucker terribly in front and back. but the sweater does fall nicely down my frame and it's flattering from below the chest on down. i was so excited to try this on. i thought it would be a great dressy/casual piece. thought of ordering a small for looser sleeves, but that won't solve the sleeves too long issue.

I'm on the fence about which size I'm keeping. The XS is slim and the waist curves in really nicely. The chest is slightly snug, though, and my boobs squish down. I'm a 32" bust. Not considered large at all. The small, however, is baggier everywhere else and it fits much less flattering as a result. It's boxier for sure but there's more breathing room in the chest. This info might help someone who is borderline XS/S and is pretty curvy. Thankfully, with Backcountry's return policy I can decide carefully without making a snap decision being pressured to get it back within 30 days.

Thought this would be "the one." I ordered the Kodiak Blue. I looked like a trash bag! It was the first thing out of my mouth when I looked in the mirror. It's very dark and shiny like a lawn and leaf bag. The elastic wrist cuffs are big and baggy, like the elastic has worn out. The sleeves just dangle. This is going back for sure

I wanted a regular 'ol sweat jacket. Here it is. I am 5 feet tall and I bought this girls jacket thinking it would fall at the waist like a cropped sweatshirt. It did. Love it. I know I will wear this all over town for errand running on weekends and other super low-key, casual, slop-around activities. I might even order a second one and put it away so I'll have another when this one wears out.

Really like this fleece. Quality is super good. Extremely warm. Sleeves are slim, though. I can't wear this over a thick sweater; just something thin. But that's fine. One big beef: the sleeves are tooooo long! I bought the small and my arms are proportionate to my height/size. The sleeves bunch up like the Michelin tire man. They're truly about 6" too long. My hands would have to be at my mid-thighs for these sleeves to make sense. But this jacket is worth altering because it's the best fleece I've worn. Only other issue: I thought I was buying some great Norwegian brand of gear and it's made in China. Felt a little misled.

My husband wore this in Colorado in 5 degree weather with a baselayer. He said it was incredibly warm and when it got warmer (30 degrees) it was almost too warm cuz he built up a sweat just walking around. He's stoked about using it to wear to football games when the weather's frigid. Then he doesn't have to carry piles of clothes with him.

I love, love this little fleece and wanted to rationalize keeping it. But the soft pile is sparse and looked like it would wear away after only a few wearings and washings. I wasn't willing to risk it since it's expensive. I ordered another thinking it might've been a defect, but same story. The trim around the bottom of the jacket also puckered... guess where...right at the top of my butt. Not flattering.

I couldn't keep it. I'm 5'0" and 120 and ordered the Small. I'm curvy and it was very baggy at the armholes even when I tried it on with a heavy fleece underneath. I need my vests to be snug and there was no hope. I even put it over a lightweight down sweater and the armholes were still huge. They don't stock XS or I'd have tried another.

This is a great layer and crew. I wear it over a thin black silk funnel neck and I am amazingly toasty and it looks good too. I'm 5 feet and 115 lbs. and I ordered an XS and an S. The XS was insanely tight and I like my clothes snug. The S is a flattering fit. The yellow is like a deep sun color, not blinding yellow. Not all Ibex are made in the USA, though; this is made in Canada. That's still okay by me.

My husband wore this skiing in Colorado for 4 days. He loves it and another Ibex short-sleeve woolie. He said it was the perfect layer and the orange color was hot. He is a sweathog, and he did say it smelled a little bit. But he still prefers it over synthetic, plastic clothes and is willing to rinse the shirt for another day of wear. Great, great shirt.
