"Lightweight, decently warm, easily picked out of a crowd from several football fields away."
I'll come right out and say it, I don't like fleece jackets. They're way lame. I don't know why people love them so much. If you've ever gotten me one for christmas, it's gone to the red cross. (Sorry mom!) This does however leave me in a bind sometimes when I do want that light warmth a fleece would apparently provide. This jacket has filled that gap for me. It's my go-to mid-layer on most days. Just heavy enough to provide some warmth, not so hot and heavy as a down sweater jammed under a shell. Also, hybrids are the new hotness. If you're thinking about getting this, just pull the trigger already. And don't get black. You already have a black jacket. It's boring, retire it already.
