"Great fitted fleece, I highly recommend it."
I am not going to lie, I intended to return this jacket after I got it because I got a little carried away at the Black Friday sale. However, when I got it, I fell in love with it. This is definitely one of the best fleece jackets I have had and I have had quite a few. It is definitely designed for a more anatomical fit, which works great for me because I am pretty skinny. It fits me tighter than any other fleece I have, which I like, as it does not get caught on stuff or get in the way during high intensity activities, but if you don't like that, you might want to size up. Quality wise, it is what you would expect from Marmot. Fleece is the nice soft Polartec kind that seems to be making its way into more stuff now days. I would describe it as a mid-weight fleece. I would not describe the outside as a 'hard fleece' facing, but it is faced with a fabric that helps keep the fleece from picking up all the debris bare fleece tends too and cuts the wind down a tad. Great product!
Bought this jacket in September and have worn it religiously since. Your expectations will determine whether or not you like this jacket. It is not meant to be a stand along jacket in temps below 50, in my opinion, though I am 6' 145 lbs with very little god given insulation. This is a great layering piece. Keeps me real cozy under my Marmot ROM. It's also really comfortable and form fitting, hugging the skin really closely. Thumb holes are a huge plus. I can't complain one bit about this jacket.
"Well-built, comfortable and functional."
I don't know why i took so long to purchase a marmot product. This is my new favorite piece of gear- i take it absolutely everywhere. Fit: I am 6'2", 180 lbs with long arms and athletic build. The large is perfect. It goes slightly lower on the waist than most jackets, which i find useful when wearing a pack or layering under a shell. Materials: This is a performance jacket with the comfort level of an old, squishy sweater. Caution- co-workers and girlfriends will steal it, given the opportunity. Despite its softness, the jacket is by no means fragile. Seams are all double-stitched and the outer material seems to be tough, though extremely flexible. The few times i find the size doesn't allow movement, the stretchy material gives me the extra room. I have only owned it for about 2 months, so i cannot speak for longtime durability. Another plus; lifetime registration- easy to set up!I love this jacket! I will definitely look to marmot in the future- and always from Moosejaw!!
"Great hoodie, comfortable and very versitile."
My first Marmot purchase but will definitely come back for more. Made very well, warm, and great for layering. This hoodie and a shell would be perfect on cold days. Otherwise by itself during early spring or late fall would be perfect. The thumb holes are a nice add on too.As for sizing I'm 5'11", 200 lbs and the large fits quite well. It seems a bit long in the torso but I feel the medium would be too snug in the shoulders and short in the arms.Highly recommended!!
