Basic fleece layer.

Construction- Stitching is consistent and straight, zipper is a YKK article.

Warmth- Just what you would expect from a light fleece, basically windproof.

Durability- I have used this as outerwear while backpacking, and there are no signs that the ruck straps have abraded/damaged the fleece.

Cons- If you sport it as outerwear when you meet some friends at a restaurant, there is a 90% chance someone in your party will also be wearing plan ahead, and make some calls beforehand!

Cost- If you pay sub $50 it is a bargain in my opinion.
