REI Muir Woods Jacket - Men'sis rated4.25out of5by4.
Rated3out of5bymarshafromAfter exchange, a decent fleeceThis looks a bit better than the average basic fleece. I bought it for my husband and after it was worn around the house for a couple of days there was a split at the elbow - presumably the fabric had a fault because it didn't catch on anything. We exchanged it, but only the size bigger was available and although this was fine for a week it was too big to fit comfortably under a ski jacket so we returned it. Because I have some doubts about the quality, the rating is only 3 stars. Also - it attracted dust and fluff far too easily. At a cheaper price this wouldn't be a problem.

Rated5out of5byRhythmfromWould have paid doubleThis is a very nice fleece and my favorite now out of the vests and 1 long sleeve I own. The fit is amazing as well as the comfort. Being on clearance makes this even a better deal.
I cannot stop hoping for cold weather so I can get more use out of this jacket.

Rated4out of5byAdventureGeek16fromDoes what it saysI've had this fleece for about a year and a half now. It's exceptionally durable with a tough lining around the waist and cuffs, creating a great fit and not allowing it to stretch over time. No disrespect to previous reviewers, but this product says nothing being windproof, and it isn't. However, while it is not waterproof (even though we all have different ideas for the term), it IS water-resistant. If you are around town, a casual sprinkle or light rain really does nothing. You may feel the jacket be a little heavier, but it carries a Polartec fabric, which makes it somewhat between a cotton sweatshirt and a true rain jacket. fHiking and backpacking can be great with it. It's not really "packable," as it is relatively bulky, but I usually just tie it to the outside of my pack and then use it at night. All in all, it's a great fleece jacket that can look casual for around town, be used outdoors, and still maintain a great composure over time. Well done by REI.

Rated5out of5byEnochfromGreat fit, nice texture.Great fit for my medium build. I am 5'9' 179lbs, 41" chest, 33" waist, with wide Welsh shoulders, and this jacket fits perfectly. I'm using it as a primary hiking/around town jacket when it's colder/foggy in San Francisco and surrounding Bay area. Combined with the REI eVent shell, it's perfect for just about anything. Adding a smartwool layer and/or silk tshirt, Tahoe cold will probably be do-able...I run hot BTW, so this jacket is perfect. The exterior texture looks great, and lack of huge blatent labeling is a huge+ for me. Looks great around town with a kilt or shorts or jeans.
