Mountain Hardwear Monkey Man Fleece Jacket - Men'sis rated4.2222out of5by9.
Rated2out of5byfromAm I the only one that didn't like it!?I had this jacket for a long time, trying to fall in love with it. It was the softest, cuddliest, most annoying jacket I have ever owned. I had to be careful not to touch anything while wearing it. The soft and cuddly fabric would attract tree bark, dog hair, dirt, my hair, absolutely any kind of contaminate. That, I could have dealt with, picking the bark from it gave me something to do on long Alaskan nights once the fire was started. What was the deal breaker was the complete lack of wind protection. The slightest breeze would penetrate it. Be warned.

Rated4out of5byfromGot Banana'sI have only used it for spring weather around Buffalo,NY. Very soft as hug attracting material. On windy/rainy cold weather it worked nicely as a layer with wind breaker/rain jacket. Not sure about beach sand?

Rated5out of5byfromGreat Post Hike JacketThis jacket is awesome it is light enough that you won't notice it in your pack, but once you get to camp and need that extra layer the faux fur is nice on sore shoulders/body. The real bonus is its functionality in the field is not its only plus, but after the climb its great and stylish enough for the bar crawl.

Rated4out of5byfromNice fleeceThis fleece is a great insulation layer under a shell. One of the warmest fleeces I've ever put on. If you run cold, or are doing cold weather outdoor adventuring and are already bringing a shell, I highly recommend this. It has 0 windproofing though, so don't expect it to be warm on cold nights except if there is no wind, then it will keep you nice and toasty alone. I love the slim cut and full range of movement the long articulated sleeves provide. It sits AT the waist on my 6'1" body with a medium. A large I feel would have been a little nicer to come down further, but add too much bulk. Not a problem, just an FYI.
