Over rated: sheds and runs big
Reviewed by Rocky Mountain from Colorado on Thursday, September 4, 2014
Fleece is a layer where you don't need to break the bank. Some of my cheaper fleece products have been the best. I ordered this purely for the fact that it zips into my NF shell. In reality it's warmer not to zip them together, but it's a nice convenience. They run big. I ordered a large to go with my large NF shell. The zippers matched perfect but it felt bulky underneath. Stepped down to a medium and it's much better. The zipper is .75" shorter but that does not affect zip in function. I've owned several NF fleece jackets over the years. The newer "recycled" material sheds. Not as good as they used to be. Still a good design with nice features. Not a stand alone jacket unless your in a shelter. Any amount of wind will cut right through.
