Rated5out of5byHighCountryHkrfromPerfect for chilly nights and mild daysI bought this jacket as a birthday gift for my girlfriend and she's been loving it ever since. Great insulation layer when needed on chilly mountain nights and great outwear on mild days. It also makes for one of the softest make shift pillows you can imagine in the backcountry. It will shed some fibers initially so you may want to wash first before you start wearing it regularly.

Rated5out of5bySasquatch126fromGreat ProductIt was great for 40-50 degrees weather, though gusts of wind cut right through the material. Also, watch out for windy conditions near an open fire, fleece melts very quickly and I now have burn marks in a couple of places on it, nothing too severe (no holes) but I won't be wearing it to anything fancy.

Rated5out of5byPrefer the outdoorsfromAmazing jacketThis jacket is form-fitting, soft, and stylish. It would be used for a mid layer or a cool summer evening. It's casual enough for everyday wear and pretty enough for a night out to dinner and music. It's soft and comfortable, and the details are gorgeous. It was worth every cent.

Rated1out of5byAliceInWonderlandfromShedder!I have had this jacket for about two weeks. Initially, I loved everything about it. Then it started shedding. It has ruined two pairs of yoga pants, one pair of running tights, a number of shirts and it has shed all over my car. This kind of low performance is more suited to Wal-Mart than Mountain Hardware! It is a disaster.

Rated5out of5byindyyfromGreat, versatile fleeceI've been looking for a soft, fuzzy fleece for awhile but wasn't really satisfied with anything I found. Most fuzzy jackets seemed to shed horribly, or fit awkwardly, or both. Finally settled for a very soft and fuzzy North Face (the Osito) but wasn't really ever totally thrilled with it, both in the fit and the obnoxious amount of shedding. Then I found this jacket from Mountain Hardwear, and fortunately it's everything I was looking for! It's lightweight but relatively warm. While I had issues with the Osito's sleeve length, the sleeves on the Pyxis are great-- not too short, not too long, and they don't ride up like the Osito's did. The fabric is crazy soft but so far does NOT seem to be shedding or matting. Also, the length is great, and the jacket is very flattering. I'd say it's a slimmer fit, so if you want to layer beneath it, I'd size up; otherwise go for your true size. On milder days it's great on its own. It also works extremely well under a vest or shell for colder days-- it layers super smoothly. No matter the weather, this jacket seems to work well depending on how you use it. Overall, I feel that it beats its North Face equivalent by leaps and bounds. Definitely give it a try if you're looking for a super soft and fuzzy fleece!

Rated5out of5bySaKnutfromComfortable FleeceI bought the fuschia-colored fleece. I typically wear a medium but the small sized fleece fit better. It is one of the most comfortable pieces that I have owned. It is fuzzy both inside and out. It is perfect for a fall coat alone or underneath your winter coat. I never want to take this piece off!
