Great Windproof Jacket
I bought this jacket after losing my basic black North Face jacket that I wore everywhere. Unfortunately, everyone and their brother is wearing North Face gear now and I was looking for a versatile jacket to replace it that would be worth the money. I was so pleased when this arrived. It is fitted, which is what I was looking for so I don't feel so bulked out. I also like that the sleeves are a little longer. I have pets and it doesn't seem to trap the hair and fuzz quite as much as other black fleeces I've owned. Still need to keep up with the lint roller, though, but I expected that. Seems really warm, even on a bluster winter day in Colorado. I love Patagonia products, and I feel like this will last forever. The price isn't great, but not too bad for the quality of this jacket.

Patagonia Rocks-Great Fleece
Best Fleece ever...why buy ANY other brand- we only wear Patagonia and this jacket delivered. Great for layering or alone. VERY warm and Windproof. Only complaint is that sleeves run short, but like the slim fit therwise

Best fleece ever!
I was looking to replace my North Face fleece, mainly because it was getting a little worn out but also because I wanted something a little different (I got my North Face years ago before the whole craze and would rather not wear something that everyone else wears!). So glad I found this jacket! Super comfortable and warm and looks great, too! Fits me perfectly, although like a lot of Patagonia's apparel, it does run on the small side. Buy it, you won't regret it!

totally worth it!
I have had many fleeces but purchased this one because my daughter has it. I love it, just spent time in upstate New York and Vermont, where it was supposedly spring but completely windy. I didn't feel a thing, so sorry it took me this long to purchase it!

Let the wind blow!
Unbelievable a jacket that lives up to its description! Warm, light -weight and really windproof! I live in New England and we have had a very snowy winter thus far.Yup,I shoveled my drive way wearing my classic retro-x and was warm as toast. Even when the gusts of wind came by I was nice and warm. Thinking of buying the new version with the hood.My only con is their is no chest pocket. A good thing to know is that I'am 5ft tall and 115lbs and needed to purchase a medium as it has a slim fit. The arms are long for me,so I just push them up a bit,a small price to pay for a functional jacket.Thanks Patagonia!
