It's a good lookin' fleece vest.
- Looks good
- Handwarmer pockets
- No sleeves (only joking)
It fits nicely like most pata stuff. It is a little big in the arm holes. Fits nicely in the chest, fairly slim. I'm 6' 160 and I have a medium. It looks nice in the reddish color.
The vest is not super warm, it is only about 150 weight fleece, but for the weight it is very good. The zippers on it are kind of loud and have lots of resistance which is strange. Bought it off ebay NWT.
It is a good piece for skiing or casual wear. I don't think it will make the cut into my winter day hiking kit.
