Almost perfect

Reviewed by CeeThe Teacher from Bend, Or on Friday, May 15, 2015
I like 90% of this fleece. The gathers at the wrists/shoulders/chest give it an exceptional shape--along with the line along the chest. The collar is tall and the hood is warm. The fleece is very light and thin, but it's warmer than you'd expect for the weight. I got the blue-ish color and it's lovely. I'm 5'9", 145 lbs, with a full bust and narrow hips. I note this because...the not perfect part is coming. Everything on the top of this fleece is some of the best design I've seen/tried. However: there's no elastic at the waist, and no drawstring. For me, the hem of the fleece sticks out about 2 inches on each side. It doesn't look great, considering how sleek the rest of the jacket is, and it also lets air in (which defies the awesome length and the nice scoop of extra fabric in the back. If it were possible to make this fit around the hips, it would be 100%. If you are narrow chested and have wider hips, this might be perfect already!
