Nice top, I'm sold on the omni-heat. Like on my ski pants it is great on this fleece. The size is small though - I wear an XL, and the arms are so tight compared to the body! The Vietnamese must have skinny arms?
The finishing is lacking. There's a flap on each side that covers the edge of the zipper tape that flops loose and will eventually look like [...]. It just folds over, bunches up, and wrinkles. Should have been sewn down along the edge, which would have added to the current plain styling of the front zipper welt!
There's some flimsy cuffs inside each sleeve that won't last.... It's not very hefty and sticks out past the end of the sleeve. An elastic sleeve or knit inside cuff would have been more useful!
I may keep it, or maybe not - depends how it performs with my ski shell.

This fleece jacket is made of quality material but has some challenging dimensions. I'm 6' and 190lb. I normally take an XL or LT size , having a 36" sleeve length requirement. The jacket fit the body well but the sleeves are too long even for my arms and very narrow . This makes getting it on and making active movements somewhat difficult. Returning it and will seek another fleece wind stopping jacket.to replace it.
