Being a Mountain Hardwear fan for years, I thought I could not go wrong with this jacket. As claimed, it is really soft, warm, and comfortable. The first issue I had with it, was the shedding. BIG TIME SHEDDING. I bought it in red, and everything I wore, including my seat belt, was in red lint. I could not believe it. First time I had this problem. So I washed it, and it seemed to help. Also, I noticed that if I wore a short sleeve t-shirt under this fleece, the seams of the sleeves were a bit rough, not quite as smooth as I would expect from Mountain Hardwear. Overall, the jacket is very versatile, warm, and if you wear a long sleeve layer under, very comfortable. If you get this jacket, take my advise: WASH IT before you wear it!
