The North Face Men's SDS 1/4 Zip
Even those who live off the grid crave the gridded heavyweight fleece warmth of this Men's SDS 1/4-Zip pullover from The North Face. While conventional fleece jackets and midweight pullovers do a good job keeping your core warm, gridded fleece traps warm air against your skin and optimizes the thermal warmth--with up to 50% better heat retention depending on fleece fabric comparisons. The North Face optimized their SDS 1/4-Zip pullover for backpacking and climbing by adding underarm gussets and using rolled shoulder seams to minimize abrasion. This improves your range of motion and minimizes potential discomfort beneath a heavy backpack or climbing harness. If you spend a lot of time in the high country, you'll find that The North Face Men's SDS 1/4-Zip pullover is an ideal three-season utility base layer that doubles as a casual top on cool summer evenings. You'll also discover that it's an amazing value when you compare the thermal warmth to other similarly priced performance fleece tops and jackets.

bought this fleece last year for my fiance, and he absolutely loves it! great ski layer, casual top, and I steal it quite often to wear around the house on chilly days. I'm getting one for myself next!

Great as a casual weekend shirt
I bought this for my boyfriend and he loves it! It looks great when worn as a shirt with jeans. He loved it so much that I bought it in every color. This style runs a little roomier than some of the other north face clothing. If you are between sizes or want a more fitted fit you may want to consider sizing down. My boyfriend is 6' 190lbs and the XL fit well but was a roomy fit, which I liked. I have washed the shirt several times and it has held up well--no pilling, shrinking or fading.

Feels nice and is the right weight for a pullover. Believe the sizes are pretty accurate. I'm 6'0 180lbs and generally between a medium and large, I ordered one in each size so I've got one this is more snug and one less snug.

SDS 1/4 Zip
Comfy and warm / runs a bit large / 1/4 zip is heavy duty made - wear it over shirt / works great as an outer shell - not really wind proof - but works well! highly recommend!
