I bought this fleece 1/2 zip when it was on sale and it was worth every penny. It fits good and it is perfect for cool days when a jacket is too much. At first, I thought it may be too thin but it does a good job. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a good base layer on cool days.

This is a very tight fitting fleece. I am 6' and 250, but in good shape. A 2XL was still form fitting. My only HH product thus far and probably my last. I know this was a lightweight model and meant strictly for wearing as a layer, but it just seems flimsy and thinner than I would've expected. Will use during deer season as a filler...

Pros: Great value, Cons: seems cheaply made, tight fitting even for 2xl
