My input so far: This fits great and I am WAY picky about fit. Mostly I am a petite woman who has a longer torso and long(ish) arms... The arms were long enough, the torso was long enough, and it was baggy anywhere (which usually happens when I size up for the previous reasons). It seems like I could still have two layers underneath and be comfortable. The material is super soft but time will tell as to how that holds up. So far it is exactly what I wanted.
"Another great fleece jacket from Mountain Hardware"
I bought this for my wife and she loves it. The fabric is super soft both on the inside and out with the perfect amount of pockets (too many pockets on some of the fleeces out there make you look like a backup dancer from the Michael Jackson “Bad” video). We purchased the women’s large and it is slightly big on my wife - 5’6” and 145lbs (busty). The good side is it will fit perfectly with a long sleeve shirt or other layer underneath. The jacket is very well made, as I have come to expect from MH, and has enough thickness to keep you warm on cool/cold fall days, or as a layer under a shell during the winter. Buy with confidence.
"An excellent jacket for an even better price!"
I love this jacket! It is true to its size and is extremely comfy. It works great alone on a chilly morning or can be used for extra warmth over a sweater. I am by nature a cold person, so finding a good lightweight jacket that keeps me warm is hard, but this one has stood up to the test so far. I also love the extremely soft, plush feel! This jacket is my favorite and I could have bought it for a better price anywhere else.
"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! =)
