I have been using this fleece jacket well over 2 years now. I work in the oil field and I did not want something too expensive to take with me on a regular basis but did want a jacket that suits my needs and not cost too much. The fit is great, I am 5'11" 180 lbs and the large is perfect. the sherpa lining is great and withstands a lot of washes. Over the past two years I have used it during peak winters and spring and fall seasons with just a base layer and i usually haven't needed anything else. I do wear my North Face expedition weight base layer in crew style and the combo just works fine. I just wish STP had better colors to go with so I could buy more of it.

I was torn between giving this either three or four stars...3 1/2 would have been more appropriate. This jacket is a "tweener"; it's too lightweight to function as a true winter coat, yet it's lack of breathability makes it lose points for warmer
weather. The sherba type microfleece lining has a bad tendency to cling to whatever base layer you're wearing, particularly to polyester wicking material, and can hamper mobility. And don't even ask about pet hair...I think it was actually pulling fur from all of my neighbors' dogs as well as my own. On the plus side, it's got North Face style and quality, and should last forever. It's got a good but not overgenerous cut and washes very well. Overall, a good, well-made jacket, just the lack of range and versatility limits it's appeal.

I recently needed a hooded jacked I could either wear stand alone or layered. I was using a light weight jacket but it was not cutting it. Along came the Chimborazo. Perfect weight, I can layer it or wear it alone and it is not baggy at all. I typically wear a M and that is what this is. It is cut perfect and not baggy. I am an athletic build 5'7" 155. Hope this helps.

Jacket is cut large in the torso and short in the sleeves. There is nothing special about it. It is lightweight fleece no where near as warm as my under armor that I got for the same price. Onlt STP pricing make this attractive. It would be a rip-off at anything near full price.

It is an OK jacket. Not worth the money. It is not very warm and it is cut extremely large in the torso. Fits like a garbage bag.
I have an under armor fleece that is much warmer, fit perfectly and was cheaper. North Face is now a main stream yuppie product.
I have a pair of there trail shoes I just purchased that lasted about a month, very cheap!
