This fleece is awesome. The fit runs a little large and boxy, I would say. I am 5'6 ~160 and ordered a large - it's a little baggy on its own, but i can put a hoodie or sweater under it no problem. The sleeves are plenty long and the thumb holes beat the heck out of the Columbia I was replacing with this. It's good to note that this isn't fuzzy wooly fleece, it's furry fleece. I love it and everyone around me generally feels the need to "pet" me in my softness. I also LOVE that the pockets are up higher, makes a huge difference when wearing a pack or climbing harness. My only disappointment is that the Polartec fleece on the cuffs pilled up a bit the first time I belayed in it, but that was my fault for having the cuffs down and using the thumb holes. The fitted hood is also very nice. Overall, it is incredibly warm (though NOT wind resistant) and doesn't restrict my activity. I wish the fit was a little more snug, but that could probably have been solved with a smaller size. Great fleece and can't beat the steal of a price on here.

I loved this jacket when I tried it on at Sierra Trading Post for $106. Didn't want to spend that much money so when I got home I looked on line and found it at Department of Goods. I ordered it for $49.49!on 9/21 and it arrived 9/23! You can't get better service or price.
Jacket is very soft; fits me great and very stylish. I know it is last year's model but who cares! Great jacket; great buy.
