Rating: rated 3 of 5 stars

It may say retro, but the quality of my most recent purchase (circa '11) is not near the quality of my last couple (circa '00), they just don't last as long, especially at the elbows and pack rub points.


  • soft
  • cozy
  • no metal at cuffs (snaps, etc.) that interfere with iPads, etc.


  • wear for hiking use
  • wear at elbows for lounging
  • airflow at pockets (cold) if pockets unzipped

This is a great classic. Although they no longer wear like iron for hiking, they are a great cozy lounger for around camp, or deck and patio lounging.

Classic fit with true to size (up one size from 10 years ago) dries fast, water beads in light showers, not for rain or wet snow, breathes and wicks better than most fleece, not for windy conditions without an additional wind blocking layer.
