Sarah Great Product! Definatly holds up great! Will be buying more products from this company!

frioat I bought this as a nice lightweight sweater that I could wear on chilly mornings in the summer. However it has far surpassed that usage.



Despite its thinness it is warm enough for just about any high-aerobic activity if under a shell. I wore it in northern Maine last winter during the night to keep me warm in a log cabin and in the day as ski insulation. It's nice and soft so going over long underwear is a great usage. Last summer I hiked for eight+ hours in rain, wind and forty degrees with only this and a rain shell. Despite the weather I was not chilled by the end. It's very breathable so sweat was never a problem.



I have taken it on every backpacking trip for the last year because of its light weight and I've never bothered to try and outdo it on weight.



It's nice and stretchy so climbing/rock scrambling is easy in it.



Overall this is an often overlooked but great product.

Pikes Peak Hiker My gripes with the newest version of this fleece is that I have three older ones that I love and this new one ('07/08) doesn't measure up, literally. I have one that is maybe four years old that is very long in the sleeves (I'm a 37" sleeve) and ample through the body. I liked it enough to buy two more in early '07. The sleeves were slightly shorter but still adequate, the body more fitted but still okay. I bought this one and the color was not at all as pictured, which is okay, but the sleeves were short and it pulls funny across the back and upper sleeves when I lift my arms, so it's going back. I love the other versions so if you're not overly tall it might work for you. I love my earlier years versions so I would recommend it to a friend with the advise of trying it on first to be sure it fits your body type. For the Colorado mountains it's something you can wear pretty much year round.

ice99 This is truely the most versatile peice of sportswear that I own. I can wear this pullover on cool mornings here in Florida for cycling or offshore fishing, to skiing in Utah or ice climbing in New England.

Makes a perfect non bulky warm layer under a shell.

I've washed the thing over 50 times and the fleece does not pill up. My buddies pit bull even grabbed the sleve and about pulled it off my back, but it came through with not even a tooth hole. The thing is tough. Buy one.

Jbomb101 This is the only shirt Ive bought twice and loved. My first one got destroyed, but I thought this shirt was so good I had to buy it again. Ideal for just about everything. Its light but not too thin. Warm but not too hot. Highly recommended if you want a do-it-all layering piece.

Running Man These fleece's are the best. They're lightweight, breathable, and warm. They wash up easily and dry out quickly and still look good after years of use. I have 4 different colors and live in them all winter long. If the wind whips up you better cover up, because they're very breathable...which means they're also not windproof. But at least you can zip up the neck for protection from the cold.

wragon Really comfortable and great at knocking off the chill whether indoors or out. I wore it almost every day in late winter, early spring. I plan to get lots of use out of it this fall as well. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

frustration incarnate Bought this while it was on sale and I can honestly say that I wouldn't mind paying full price for another one. I bought it instead of a new hoodie once one of my old ones started to fall apart, and it has done phenomenally well so far both while hiking and during normal use. It has this weird ability to keep the wind out better than a sweatshirt while biking, but breathe easier than a sweatshirt while indoors.



It says it is machine wash/dry, but it retains so little water out of the wash that I just line dry it - hopefully to increase its lifespan.



It fits well over a regular shirt and doesn't funk up as fast as a sweatshirt. Overall probably my happiest purchase from REI so far.

Ryan the Rugged I use this for everyday wear and cold-weather running. I've had it for two years, wear it often and still haven't seen any seam stretching or fabric pilling. Very well made and the perfect balance of breathability and warmth.



When I'm doing anything outdoorsy, I get pretty hot. I rarely want to wear a jacket because I know I'm just going to get hot halfway through my hike or jog. The North Face Glacier is perfect.



It's definitely NOT warm enough for extreme temperatures, unless you just use it as an under layer. I mostly use it with an undershirt and no jacket. The 1/4 zip is perfect to let in a bit of extra air conditioning when I need it.



Nothing negative to say here. It's well worth the money and stylish enough to wear everyday.
