Love this jacket!
I am very satisfied with my choice. I first got a patagonia R2 fleece that was more expensive and returned it cause I didn't like the color. I decided to shop some other options before just replacing it with another R2 and I'm glad I did. This one was cheaper which made me nervous cause I thought maybe it wasn't as comfy or warm, but honestly I like it a lot better than the patagoinia. I love the fit, very flattering. It is so soft and warm and feels like an overall high quality product! Save yourself $50 and just get this one.

Love this jacket - SO SOFT and comfy! Saw this at a store and was cheaper to order - free shipping too! Shipping was quick - I am sure I will enjoy this little fleece for many years!

The Pyxis jacket is made of very soft material and keeps me quite warm. My only slight complaint is that the sleeves are a tad short (though the body fits well), so keep this in mind if you have long arms.

good fall and early winter jacket
The jacket is very soft and fits well. I find the jacket most useful in the Fall and early winter months (as a layer). It doesn't provide much wind protection, but with my gortex jacket over the Pyxis jacket I was comfortable in 40 degree temperatures. I can wear the jacket alone in 60 degree temps and be comfortable. The jacket is true to size. I wear usually a Large in Mt Hardwear clothing and it fits well. Not boxy, not a close fit. I can wear medium weight sweater underneath the jacket. Washes well, doesn't pile. I don't dry the jacket in the dryer, I hang dry so, I can't comment on if it shrinks or not. I would buy another jacket if it were on sale. It is on the expensive side.

Mountain Hardwear does it again!
Must confess I am a Mountain Hardwear fan and this fleece just confirms it. I bought (and returned) quite a few fleeces last winter and they were either scratchy on the inside, or fit like a box, usually both. This fleece fits really nicely, not tight but with some curves. And super soft. And comfortable inside as well as out. It's a keeper!
