This jacket is perfect. It is super soft and has a great cut to fit me perfectly. It keeps me nice and warm, even on my recient Alaska Cruise. I would like to get the same jacket for both my daughters.

Best jacket ever!!
I love my mountain hardware monkey fur, so I thought I would give this sable a try. The fleece is the softest ever!! I have not noticed any of the "crunchiness" described by others. I got caught in a light rain the first time I wore it, and the conduit layer protected from the rain, which I did not expect. The problem areas for me are the sleeve and torso length being to short , but both are plenty long on this jacket. ( I am 5'6" and 105 lbs) I would recommend to anyone for a midweight jacket. I will be ordering a few for gifts.

Finally Mountain Hardware made their sleeves long enough for active wear! Although the jacket is a bit crinkly, it is super warm with a great fit. Great alone or layered.

Great Performance Fleece Jacket
I got this for my girlfriend for her birthday. Definitely the softest fleece I have ever felt and it is also incredibly warm, windproof and waterproof. Sure it is a little pricey but you definitely get what you pay for. The only cons are the sleeves are pretty tapered and not very loose, also for the first week or two the laminate is stiff but after some decent wear it loosens up. Overall a great jacket!

soft and warm
In my opinion, this jacket is similar to the Mt Hardwear Mynx Jacket in that it is soft, warm, and windproof. It is soft and warm inside and out, has a nice design pattern on the sides of the jacket as well. I can wear a light to mid weight layer underneath the sable jacket and be warm when the temp is 30 to 40F. I do not know if it will still be warm with any temp below 30F, as it has not been that cold yet where I live. However, I suspect it will be especially with a gore tex jacket over the sable jacket. The fit is more on the relaxed side. I usually wear a large in Mt Hardwear apparel and this fit me well. I can probably wear a mid weight shirt underneath and I would still have a comfortable fit, not too tight. It washes well. I didn't machine dry so, I can't tell you if it will shrink or not. The only CON: on the expensive side, but I had an Altrec promotion discount so, I was able to purchase the jacket at a more affordable price. Altrec rocks !!
