Comments about Mountain Hardwear Arlando Fleece Jacket - Women's:
I bought this as a lightweight jacket for the summer (in New England, summer weather can be cold). Mountain Hardware fits me well and usually lasts forever. For example, I had one of their original 1-layer, lightweight rain jackets from 2002(?) and just replaced it LAST YEAR. I have been wearing a wind-block fleece and shell, bought around the same time period, for snowboarding and it shows no signs of needing replacement. In fact, the fleece layer was stolen somewhere in Peru and when I returned home, I bought the exact same one again because it was so great! This new jacket, however, is pilling already. Especially at the shoulder (I think my seatbelt is the culprit). I just wish the fabric was more durable. Clearly, I buy this stuff because it lasts AND I think they cut clothing properly for women's bodies. Not so impressed this time. I would recommend it for the GREAT fit but I worry that it will not last.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
