This is the most comfortable jacket I have ever worn. I use it for lounging around the house and at work sitting behind a computer. Kind of fuzzy looking but very soft. I have other jackets I wear for hiking & skiing.

Love this jacket! It's warm and soft, and the fit is great! It's great for winter days as an extra way to keep warm inside, and as an extra layer when going outside. Also, I love that it was offered in a long length so that it actually FITS me.

This is a great everyday sweater for wearing around a cool house as well as out on cool days. It is soft and fleecy and I especially like that my dog's hair does not become permanently attached to the fleece.

The build and fabric quality are top notch, using all the right suppliers: YKK, Polartec's Thermal Pro Loft.
My only wish is that there was one more pocket, on the chest - Of course that adds weight and this is a light-weight piece.
As this product is made in the USA, for Americans, the fit of this one is for Tall, not "Big", men. I am 6'2", 188, and the Medium fits me very well without torso bulk. Arm and body length are great-probably a 35" sleeve length. It is a looser fit than my other, more technical pieces in size Medium - I'd say an "Active" cut, but not "technical". The Regular versions of this jacket are built for the regular American Joe, with big shoulders, chest, and gut compared to arm/leg length.
This is not a technical piece, per say, but the well-executed elastic cuffs and hem keep things where they should be, allowing my to use it for many outdoor adventures. The coverage is long enough in back for more technical pursuits, but so is the front, so it isn't ideal for climbing harnesses/pack waist belts - nor is the pocket location. I've worn it as a midlayer, with my outer shell having more ideal pocket locations relative to my pack straps.
The fabric is super warm, but not windresistant. My wife describes the texture as beautiful...Well done Kenyon and STP for carrying such a great value on a product with all the best materials.
