    I don't know what the point of this jacket is. It's too thin to be warm, pills like crazy, and is a pain to put on over other clothing items (does not slide easily, and is really meant for people with skinny arms).

    I have quite a few MH winter, down and ski jackets, and this is the first MH jacket I've been disappointed with. The fabric seemed thin and cheap, but that was OK because it was quite warm for its weight. However, the thing that got me was that it pilled like no other jacket I've ever laid eyes on. I wore it for a few hours indoors on top of a cotton T-shirt, and my (admittedly hairy) arms and neck were covered with little orange balls of fluff. I tried it on top of a black shirt for a few minutes, and spent the next ten minutes removing orange lint/fluff from the shirt with a sticky roller. Maybe that's normal for this jacket, or maybe I got a lemon. Don't care either way. This one's going back.

    I bought this fleece for my guy (who is very picky), after becoming a fan of MH's ladies fleeces. He'd only had Columbia fleeces before and the fit and style of MH is just superior. This fleece just looks a bit sharper and more tailored, making it great in the woods or running around town on the weekend. The material is higher quality as well and will age more nicely (won't look so bumpy) than his other fleeces. I've had my first MH fleece for three years and it's still serving me well. The little details, like the cloth tab that pops over the zipper to keep it from being cold against your neck, speak to the quality of this fleece. The Flame color is a nice orange, not too bright. He can comfortably layer this fleece under jackets. Please note, I wash our fleeces on cold and hang them to air dry; this really extends the life of the material. Great purchase for such a great deal!

    There is nothing technical, nor exciting with this jacket. It's a box cut, not athletic cut, full zip with hand pockets on both sides.the only reason that you would buy this over something from Sam's or Costco, is to wear the MH brand. It fit true to size. I am a 42" and bought a large that fits fine, and is roomy.

    This jacket is simply great. Fit, color, size are exactly what I wanted. It's a lighter weight fleece, which is also exactly what I wanted. I will probably buy at least one more...

    The is a very well made jacket, just the thing for cool weather down to 45 or 50 degrees F. It is well proportioned. The pockets are just deep enough to store a reasonable amount of stuff. I doubt that I will use the drawcord at the waist but it is there I it is needed. I highly recommend this jacket.

    For what it is, it is good. It's no winter jacket, more like a cool spring morning jacket. It is soft and I wore it as my everyday jacket in orange for a while. It's nice.

    I purchased the Microchill recently, as I was looking for a lined softshell or fleece jacket to wear during the colder months. I found this to be a good mid layer or outer layer in milder temperatures. It's extremely warm - almost surprisingly so - for its weight, which is what I was looking for. The construction is very good, the sizing is accurate, and it has all of the requisite features. I have pretty broad shoulders and the XXL fits very well - it has plenty of room and it's pretty long in the torso so there shouldn't be any issues with drafts. Overall I'm very happy with this jacket.

    I love my Microchill fleece. The fleece is a perfect weight alone for most days and great for layering when the temperature drops. I would highly recommend this to family and friends.
