Price Paid: $78
The Mastiff is my new favorite fleece. The fit is great for me but may be slightly short for taller people (I am 5'8") It works great as a layer under my shell and as a stand alone jacket. It packs down to nothing and is light for how warm it is. I have to admit that my favorite part of this jacket is how soft the fabric is.
Pros: Light, warm, packable, and great fit.
Cons: Takes forever to dry out, and the elastic fabric of the cuffs came unraveled after only two weeks.

The Mountain Hardwear Men's Mastiff Fleece Jacket features a unique thermal fleece that works like dog fur to keep you warm in the backcountry. This Polartec Biomimicry fleece has both short and long yarns. The longer yarns cut wind so less of it pushes into the shorter, densely packed strands that trap body heat but let body vapor escape. The result is you stay exceptionally toasty in this exceptionally lightweight fleece jacket.

Exceptionally high warmth-to-weight ratio make the Mastiff our lightest weight, warmest fleece jacket. Long, soft fibers cut the wind, while close, dense ones trap heat and allow body vapor to escape. Equally suited for aerobic and anaerobic cold weather activities.
