Picked up this fleece as a way of supporting the Ukrainian people - and I was in the market for this style.
Fit: I sit in an awkward space between Western Small and Medium sizing - I ordered a small and it fits perfectly. It's just loose enough for allow movement inside the fleece without being tent-like.
Armpit zippers are excellent and allow for good ventilation without loss of insulation. Pockets and stitching are roomy and easy to access.
Insulation - extremely warm and wind-resistant while remaining breathable. Very comfortable for wide range to temperatures - mid-60s to mid-20s F in my experience thus far.
nice, but removable hood would have been nicer
Wish I had this as my field jacket when I went to Ukraine last fall / winter, helping train Ukraine military basic TCCC (combat medicine) in the field. Instant warmth, comfortable and rugged. Well designed and totally functional in all harsh cold weather. I will definitely take this with me on my next dispatch to Ukraine and any other cold weather conditions I may encounter. If you want warm, dry and functional I highly recommend this.
I have a longer torso and arms and this jacket fits absolutely perfect! Love it!
I love my wind blocker. Comfy with room to move. Very solid. Definitely buy one if you want a great jacket.
