"fits tall bodies and the action panels hug your body...others may want to hug you as well!"
Originally purchased the Mountain Hardwear 'Toasty Tweed Fleece Jacket' (elsewhere) b/c it looked like it had a long torso, which likewise so do I. Unfortunately it was not flattering in the boob area so I sent it back and decided I'd give this one with the 'action panels' on the side a 'go'. I got the 'berry jam / dark plum' one and it is vivid to say the least. I lovvve the colour, have gotten lots of compliments, and it is uber plush. I'm 6', 150 pounds and size Medium fits me perfectly - falls to the hip, I'm happy with the sleeve length and the 'action panels' follow the lines of your body in a much more pleasing way. Pumped to have found a line of fleece (Mountain Hardwear) that works for tall bodies (As an added bonus, it appears to hide stains well and be none the worse for wear after my little girl has dried her hands 'patting the fur' against the nap and back...it's like I'm her giant pink pet kitty...less shedding and hairballs than our real cats so can't complain)
This is a great jacket. I ordered the graphite and it's a beautiful color. Jacket is well made and very warm, however, it didn't fit. I'm 5"7 and hourglass so I ordered the medium, but had too much material in my mid section and the sleeves are a little long. I'm worried that the small may be too tight around my hips, but love the jacket so much I'm going to order it and see! If I planned to wear a few layers I think I could make the medium work, but I'd like it a little more fitted as I only plan to wear a thin sweater underneath.
Great versatile fleece jacket. Light weight warmth that can be worn alone (outside on the trail or inside our your couch) or comfortably under an outer shell. Stretchy side/underarm gusset panels allow for flexible movement when chopping wood, turning the steering wheel, or reaching for snacks (while sitting on your couch). I'd recommend as a perfect layer for almost any activity (except for maybe swimming).
Ordered this fleece for something warmer and more fitted to wear in the fall and as a layer during the winter. I am 5' 4", 130lbs and the small fits PERFECTLY. It is so warm and comfy and the fit is awesome. The sleeves are the perfect length. Love the zippered pockets for stashing stuff. Will be wearing this casually and maybe for running. So cozy and a great buy. Definitely recommend! =)
