This is my go to fleece for every day use. The material and the garment as a whole feels incredibly durable while maintaining a relatively thin material and structure. The outer fleece is the smooth waffle grid pattern while the inside is a loftier grid pattern. The shoulder epaulet type bands are great and prevent wear in that area, and the pockets are very warm and large. It weighs about as much as the Monkey Man, 23 ounces for my XL, so it may be heavier than expected. Compresses very little, but provides great warmth.
This fleece fits a little big. In retrospect, I might have gotten a size smaller. It gets pretty hot in anything over 65 degrees, but is dynamite down to 35-40. Great for walking around town, for example. Comfy, roomy, and can hold off rain for a little while.
