User Review: TAD Men's Ranger Hoodie
Price Paid: $200
This Jacket is bomb proof. I have 2 of these fleeces, one of which is 3 years old and been worn a ton. It is showing a little wear around the elbows but other than that it looks like new.
It is made from polartec fleece and appears to be about a 300 weight fleece. I have the older model which is an XL but with this year's changes in the sizing of the Ranger I had to go with an XXL. This years XXL actually fits better and smaller than my old XL. My measurements are 36" waist, 46"chest, 34" arm.
The functionality of the jacket is great. I live in Chicago and have worn it in weather from dry and cold -25 to cold and wet 30's. It stops most of the wind but on really windy days or those really cold days a hardshell is necessary.
My only complaint about this jacket is the front zipper has no storm guard, so while the jacket stops the wind, the front zipper lets it in.
Oh and this is still made in the USA and more specifically in California!
Bottom Line: Buy this jacket. It is warm, functional and durable.
