Rated5out of5byGennarofromGreat Fleece Jacket w/ sweater qualitiesI use this product casually and for skiing. The collar and cuffs are ribbed knit like a good sweater. The chest pocket with a flap closing is awesome. The jacket is athletic fit and not baggy at the bottom. It is light weight but warm. The knit collar lays comfortably on the neck for warmth without aggravation.

Rated4out of5byBingaBingafromWarm and the style sets it apartI bought this fleece when it was on the deal of the day. The great thing about this fleece is that some of the features set it apart from your standard fleece jackets in terms of style. First, the outside material on this jacket is more of a knit, heathered, sweater like material. Second, there are shoulder and elbow pads and a chest pocket of a contrasting color. The inside is a nice soft fleece. Also the cuffs and the collar are made of a thick, ribbed sweater like material. The collar is pretty awesome. It is pretty tall and can keep your neck warm when you need it to.
I wear this fleece almost every day in the winter, for casual use. I feels a bit of weight to it, that actually makes it feel cozy.
The only concerns i have is that the knit material is starting to pill just a bit and there is a stray stitch on the pocket.
Also, the fit is rather standard, which i like, but to others with an athletic build, it might feel a bit loose.
