Rated 5 out of 5áby eschwebach Cool/cold weather fleece jacket
Buy this jacket now! I've owned it for less than a year but that includes fall, winter and spring here in MN and I wore it all three seasons. It is very warm and cuts the wind about 90% I would say. We had a pretty mild winter so I wore this jacket more than any other. If you are being active you can wear this jacket with a decent layer underneath well below freezing (about 20 deg F). IMO it is too warm for anything over 50 deg F, but I get hot easy. The coat is also very well constructed and shows no wear so far.

Rated 4 out of 5áby JasonM123 NIce Jacket
I got the 'red' one, color is very nice, not too bright. Fit is good, I usually wear between a Med and Large, got the Med and seems to run big, so happy with fit - sleeves slightly long (or I have short arms). Good quality, well constructed, warm. I'd give it a 5th star if it had an inside breast pocket, does have two large inside ones (along with two zipped outside), but they are down at the waist and the existing zipped breast pocket is only accessible from outside.

I bought this after my previous Bean fleece wore out after being my go to jacket for over 15 years. This new one seems to be just as good as my previous jacket and I am looking forward to another 15 years of wear

Rated 4 out of 5áby sbboucher Servicable jacket
More of a dress quality jacket than camping or trekking wear. Sleeves are too long and it is overpriced. I have several similar but with nylon at wear points which cost about $79, a proper price and superior in whole. ..

Very dissapointed, because the wrist and the "LIGHT" blue fabric (as in the picture) actually is NAVY blue.

This is my second Wind Challenger. Wears like iron. Warm with a sweater down to freezing. All the good stuff others have written about it is true. But what I like best? I don't get zapped when I take it off. Polar tech stuff normally turns me into a lightning rod, but not so with this jacket.

I love this jacket! It's versatile enough for me to wear to work (a university), as well as for outdoor winter events (i.e. xc skiing). Easy to wash - just no fabric softener.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Rinch Comfortable in varied weather conditions
I have several of these, living in Colorado, where the temperatures can vary quickly, I wear them everywhere during season changes and under a jacket in the colder weather. Always keeps me warm and comfortable.

Rated 3 out of 5áby DWM3 Poor Fit
While this is a well-made jacket, the fit just does not cut it. Shoulders and chest are fine, but the waist is far too large. I'm 6' and 190, with a bit of a paunch, and the large size fits except for the over size waist.
