This is my second MH Pyxis fleece. I ordered my first one three years ago and it's still going strong; the fleece "pile" is just starting to look a bit older, so I decided to get a new one and use my current one for more rugged applications that require more frequent washing, like hiking/outdoors activities or sitting around a smoky campfire. I plan to use this new one for wearing about town. I had almost forgotten how incredibly soft this fleece is when brand new! My old fleece is still soft and pleasant to the touch, but when brand new, these are rabbit-fur soft. The emerald color was all that was available and I'm pleasantly surprised that it's a deep, gorgeous teal, not super green. It's a nice, warm fleece and perfect for layering; I can wear it comfortably between 50 to 75 degrees (comfy indoors or in the cold car first thing in the morning). Please note, I have always washed my old fleece on cold and hung it to air dry, which is probably why it's lasted as long as it has. Take care of this garment and it will last well! The cut and fit is wonderful; flattering to my shape and not at all boxy or too short. The fit, style, material and longevity are all indicative of a quality piece of clothing.

The extra small in green color is nicely fitting and the green fleece fabric is beautiful, lustrous and soft. However, the sleeves were between 1 and 2 inches too short for me...and that before any laundering (will probably shrink some from dryer). I was thinking of returning it, but then I decided to stretch the arms, as most fleece fabric does stretch some. By stretching the sleeves I was able to make them a little longer. I expect to have to do this each time it comes out of the dryer. I have been buying fleece zip ups at Target for years and have never had a problem with sleeve length on them... it seems like a petite arm length to me. Hopefully the company will make longer sleeves for future versions. I really liked that my fleece did not have the logo on the arm like the picture shows... there was only one at the bottom of the fleece on the front. I prefer no logos at all, but at least it was fairly subtle and at the bottom. True color is more of a green teal than the picture shows.... it isn't forest green, but it isn't a common bluish teal either... it is quite a rare and attractive color. Nice....only wish the sleeves were a longer length.

Softest fleece I own! The fit was perfect. I often like to wear layers and this jacket is loose enough to wear several shirts underneath it, yet form fitting enough where it doesn't hang on me. I usually wear Ladies shirts in size Medium or Small. I would definitely recommend this fleece to anyone. All of my friends were jealous!
