(I am not really lazy, just efficient. I mostly copied and pasted this from a review I did on a North Face Hoodie---I assure you, it's all true!) I actually ordered this not really sure if I would like it, but I was ordering a similar product in another brand and wanted to be able to compare. I loved this at first sight! The color is so rich and vibrant color and as soon as I put it on I knew I was keeping it. I could tell (without a mirror) that the fit was so comfy that it had to be perfect--and it is. Good for Moosejaw and bad for my pocketbook, I just had to keep both purchases.
I ordered this jacket based on how much I love the monkey woman 200 jacket. I was actually looking to order that one when I got on here, because I had tried it on in a store, but found this one & thought I might like it better since the fleece would be shorter & I love anything with thumb loops. When it arrived at my house & I tried it on, it was tiny. I ordered a large, which is the same size I tried on in the monkey woman, & even though it fit on me, it was very fitted and very short. However, it seems like a nice jacket & it is a lot more light weight. I assume that the tighter fit is more convenient for people who want to wear it under larger coats. However living in GA that is the heaviest coat i will probably need all winter so I would like to be able to wear normal clothes/sweaters under it. I believe that it would fit comfortably in one size up for me, I just wish I had known how incredibly different it would fit from the other one. I am returning this & ordering the Monkey 200
