Rated 4 out of 5 by citygirlcountrygirl A new favorite
I bought this sweatshirt for my husband for his early morning walks. He likes that it is soft, warm and looks great. He has been wearing it a lot this fall. I bought the Tall Large - he is 6'2" - which fits perfectly. His only complaint is about the metal zipper which has some sharp teeth if touched from the wrong direction. That is why I gave this item four stars instead of five.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheTallSwede Tough but super comfy
These sweaters are incredible. They are warm, have a very soft and comfortable lining, and are tough on the outside. No one at the job site needs to know that you feel like a baby in a blanket in there. The polyester lined sleeves are a nice touch too. You can slide the jacket right on without riding up the sleeves of your under-layer. The hood is a good shape and size. It covers fully and loosely but can be pulled quite tight when needed. Love the mesh pockets with Velcro inside the main ones. Great place for phones, keys, or wallets without worrying about losing anything. Honestly my only complaints are that the sleeves shrink up a tiny bit and the draw string likes to hide when put through the wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mozartny The Sweatshirt You'll Love To Wear
This warm, rugged sweatshirt is super comfy and makes me actually look forward to cool weather. It's warm but not bulky and the nylon sleeves make it easy to put on and take off, even with a heavy cotton shirt underneath. There's no bunching and it fits very neatly without being sloppy or too tight. I bought mine a year ago and it wears like iron. I think I will buy another, not because I need one, but because I want one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by New2coldweather Keeps Me Warm
This is the warmest sweatshirt I've ever worn. It's also extremely comfortable and fits perfectly. I'm from L.A. and not used to cold weather. I wore this sweatshirt this morning while walking in 38 degrees (over base and mid layers) and was toasty. I'm buying a second one now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CountessOfColdhands Fits great on small women, too
I have to make a conscious effort to not grab this jacket when I'm cold. Because I'm cold a lot!
I opted for this jacket because of the reviews and photos. Ladies jackets are frequently.. well... throwaways or not warm enough or don't last. And because kids' jackets can be like ladies' jackets....you get the idea. I wanted something more substantial, and this jacket is it.
I'm 5'4" and 120lbs, and would've gotten an extra-small if it had been offered. Small is a bit enveloping, but I'm not drowning in it. A friend at work has both the fleecy hoodies in both kids and ladies, and the "stuffed animal" fleece may be warm, but I prefer the nubby cotton in mine.
Note the nylon sleeves as other reviewers point out: chilly if you have on short sleeves. Great if you have on long sleeves....

Rated 4 out of 5 by xdavis18 Had to get the tall
I tried on the XL reg and as other reviewers noted, it was short.
I tried on the XL tall and it was a perfect fit. (I am 5' 7" and have no idea what tall people wind up getting.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Izzwood Charley's Favorite Jacket
My husband, Charley, has LOVED this jacket from the moment he opened it last Christmas. He is a very casual guy and wears it out and around the house. It's a nice, heavy weight with a very cozy lining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrGC314 Just a Great Sweatshirt
You can usually tell whether or not you're going to like something as soon as you take it out of the package.
In this case, I knew this was a great sweatshirt. Fits perfectly, feels perfectly and looks great. Typically a person that's very picky on how something feels, I was truly impressed with the quality of this sweatshirt. It exceeded my expectations! Priced competitively right!
