Very nice and warm jacket. Great for the winter cold weather.


October 26, 2006

This jacket is great as a stand alone item or worn in a layering system. I wear it on super cold days under my ski jacket and I stay super warm with all the loft that the Monkey Fur has. My complaints with this product is that after washing this item several time the Monkey fur has matted together and lost its orginal texture. Also, the jacket is constructed with roomy shoulders that taper down to narrow sleeves - this makes my shoulders look huge. Its a great cold weather staple.

It's very warm, and soft. Similar to the Patagonia R2, the Monkey Woman is really warm for it's weight.


November 28, 2007

It's light in weight, very warm, comfortable and stylish. It was a gift I got for Christmas last year and every time I wear it, someone comments on how much they like it.


December 13, 2007

I bought this jacket for my wife. She loves it and it is incedibly soft. Fits true to size. Highly recommended


February 12, 2008

i originally ordered an xs, which i always wear in other clothing. it was so small it looked like it would fit an 8-year-old. i reordered in a medium. it is pretty generously sized.


April 15, 2008

I love my monkey jacket! I have had it for about a year now and have found that brushing it with a hairbrush keeps the fur soft and fluffy. It packs small, is extremely light and makes a great substitue for a pillow when camping.


October 13, 2008

I love my jacket. It is so soft and warm. By far the best birthday gift this year. I would recommend it to anyone.


November 25, 2008

I live 100 miles from Chicago and it still windier than windy. This jacket would be great in my hometown that didn't get as much wind. Wind goes right through this thing and chills you quite quickly. If you have a windproof shell, this thing is great! If you live in windy areas, you might want to opt for the Windstopper MH jackets.

Bought this jacket for my daughter - she loves it and says it's very warm! It is slim fitting and runs small, so definitely recommend going up 1 size.


December 21, 2009

ordered 2 for my 12 and 14 yr old girls - they love them!

I bought one for my adult daughter for Christmas. It was immediately worn and is now in AZ on her visit to her in-laws. She looks great in it.

I bought this for my 12 year old stepdaughter and she has not taken it off since Christmas. The white was very pretty on her, and it is the warmest layer out there. I have a men's version and my heat bills are falling...Anytime Polartec is involved you know you are getting a superior fleece. Shipping was quick and easy.


January 04, 2010

this is the perfect jacket, its been 20 degrees and windy the past couple of days and I have not taken it off, its SO soft and snuggly, I just love it!!!, I got it for Christmas from my husband and each time I wear it out I get LOTS of compliments! :)

My daughter spilled sparkling grape juice on the sleeve the third day she owned the jacket. We sprayed Oxyclean spray and blotted the sleeve. The stain came out easily!

My daughter loves this jacket!! She has always had a Northface jacket and says that this is warmer. It fits snug and is very soft.


January 05, 2010

I bought this jacket for my 17 year old daughter as a surprise for Christmas and for a change from The North Face. She LOVES!!!! this jacket and says she likes it better and it seems warmer! This is from the expert herself!!!

This was a wonderful gift from my husband. I use this as a fleece to wear during the day since my work area is pretty cool. It keeps me warm and it very cute! I love the color (I got the pink/mauve) and it is a little ridiculous with how soft it is that I want to keep petting myself(:


January 05, 2010

I got this for my girlfriend for Christmas and Altrec was the only place I could find the right color and size. She loves the jacket! Thanks!


January 09, 2010

Love the fit. Sizing chart was perfect. Very warm and doesn't get dirty as easily as I thought it would. Highly recommend it!

love the jacket, very soft and comfortable...actually returned it for a medium. i normally purchase a small but there was not much room if you are wearing a sweater


January 19, 2010

This jacket is great, its like a cross between your favorite hoodie and your functional soft shell jacket. Its warm, lightweight, cozy and breathable!


January 19, 2010

I purchased this jacket for my daughter for Christmas. She loves this jacket and it goes everywhere with her.


January 31, 2010

I love this jacket. We live in Atlanta and it is perfect for our winter weather. It s pretty much all I need. The fit is true to size. I will probably end up getting another one so I can trade them off.


February 15, 2010

I love this jacket. The color(Cypress) is beautiful and I have gotten more compliments on it than on any I have ever owned.It is warm also.It could be about an inch bigger around the chest,I have always worn a small and that is what I ordered. Sleeve length is perfect.


February 24, 2010

The bomb. Very warm and the neoprene cuffs fit closely with the option of thumb loops.


March 15, 2010

If you like plenty of attention, this is the jacket for you. No matter where you go, people want to pet you.

I'm long-waisted so this jacket is perfect for me. The sleeves are a nice length as well. Overall it fits well (a little more tailored than some fleece jackets) and the fleece is very soft. Great product for the price!


April 05, 2010

This jacket was bought as a gift, but I am told that they love it! She said it fits great, and could be used to layer or on its own. Definitely recommended!


October 12, 2010

I instantly feel in love with this jacket when I borrowed one from my friend. After wearing hers for just a few hours, I knew I had to have one! Although it is a bit on the expensive side, it is worth every penny. I can never have too many jackets and this is one is at the top of my list!!

Entering into my 3rd week of wearing the product and its the type of fleece I never want to take off. It is comfy and warm. Its a great layer to put on top of a long t-shirt or sweater for a chilly morning/outdoor adventure. Fits very true to size. A winter essential must!


November 07, 2010

I really enjoy this jacket and just got it! It is nice and warm and extremely soft.


November 10, 2010

This is my favorite jacket, not always the most practical, but it is super comfortable. I even wear it at home on the couch watching TV, it is just so cozy even the cat likes to cuddle with it. And by the way, the cat hair is not very noticeable on this fleece which is an added bonus.I feel like Mountain Hardware needs to add a medium and a half to their sizing. I am always between a medium and large. With this jacket, I would recommend that you not size up. The medium is a bit smaller than I would like and the sleeves are barely long enough, but I feel like I'm swimming in the large. The fleece is stretchy enough that you can still comfortably layer, so that is not really a concern.I have the purple color (don't recall the name). Its a nice color, but I wish that the cuffs, hem, etc were black to add a little contrast. I do like that the logo is the same color as the material, so I don't feel like a walking advertisement.The jacket launders well, just follow the directions on the tag.

My girls love these jackets. Not the warmest, but certainly good for our climate. Cozy and comfortable.

I got this fleece instead of a patagonia one that I was looking at that was very similar, but way more expensive. This was a perfect substitute. I bought this in white and ordered a small. I'm 5'8", 140 lbs. The arms *just* fit and I wish they were a tad longer, but overall this is an amazingly comfortable, soft and flattering fleece. Not windproof, but awesome for layering or just wearing around the house.

The Mountain Hardwear Women's Monkey Jacket is GREAT!I got it for myself, its very soft, stylish and comfortable. I ordered a Meduim and it was too big so i had to return it and get a small. Other then that, its a wonderful jacket.I recommend it (:

Got this for my wife this past Christmas and she loves it! Now wears it more than her NorthFace denali!Does fit a little small so got a size larger than we normally would. (Thanks to Altrec for making the swap painless!)

I have this jacket in couple of colors and love it. I use it all the time in various activities or simply running errands in town. It is very stylish and warm. After many times I washed it, is still looks like brand new. After wash, I just hang dry it.

Nice jacket that is perfect for layering. Fits true to size and is warm enough for our mild Georgia winters. The only complaint I have about this jacket is that it pills slightly after washing.


July 01, 2011

I have this in black and wear it all the time. It is light but still keeps you warm. It isn't the best for wind protection but I was surprised at how warm it is even in the wind. The fleece holds up well and hasn't matted or pilled.

from Highland MD

Made with a type of Polartec which is very fuzzy, she loves it after having many straight Polartec 200 jackets. Yet to see if it doesn't mat and stays soft and smooth to the touch. Also loves the Powerstretch cuffs and side-cuts. Fits waist-length and form-fitted. Was a steal for the price. Note: the Bramble/Nebiola is really a nice purple (like the girl in the video), not the way-too-bright color it shows up on the thumbnail as.


October 11, 2011

This is a wonderful jacket. It is very comfortable and warm for days that you need a jacket, but not a heavy coat. I am 5' tall and weight 180 lbs and the XL fits me great.

Slip this on and you will think you are in heaven. I bought this pre-season so its hanging in my closet waiting for cold temps. I am sure it will be a favorite. The stretch in the fleece makes it more form fitting but I think I will be able to layer underneath. Nice color green with darker green accents. Altrec shipped promptly.

Mt. Hardware is the absolute best! This fleece is super soft, cozy & warm.Altrec always has wonderful customer service. In addition, they have a great return policy, backing up their products. But you don't ever need to return because they sell top quality gear. One of my favorite websites selling outdoor gear.

Super warm fleece great for layering under a windproof jacket. It'll keep you warm, but if there's any wind, it'll go right through the fleece.More fitted than traditional North Face fleeces, and the fleece is plush and soft, and doesn't pill. I'm 5'3" and petite, and a size Small was the perfect fit.Overall, very happy with this fleece and I now own it in two different colors!

This is a very warm, comfortable jacket. I ordered the Casper/Cool Grey one though, which was a very bright white, so I am going to exchange it for the Cool Grey/Stainless one.


January 04, 2012

Fast shipping. Love the jacket!! Will be buying another one soon. Wear it during the fall and winter at school. Altrec is a great site! Will recommend to everyone.


February 02, 2012

This jacket is extremely soft to the touch, warm, and light weight. The chest pocket on this jacket is very convenient and large enough for storing a phone or other personal items. The power stretch material at the waist provides a more fitted silhouette. The semi-fitted style of this jacket is very flattering and not bulky. The material of this jacket is stretchy which allows freedom of movement, and is extremely comfortable. This jacket can serve as a great mid-layer for cold weather, or an outer layer for mild weather. I highly recommend this jacket!

Bought in color Jewel for my wife. She loves the jacket. It is an eye-catcher, soft, and warmer than you might think from its light weight.The side pockets can hold large items, and the chest pocket is handy.It seems well made, but cannot judge durability as it was purchased only two weeks ago.

from Brookline, MA

July 25, 2012

I am about 5'8 and 135 lbs and the small fits perfectly. It's very cozy and warm and I love how the sleeves are tighter around the wrists. I have a fairly long torso but the length is fine. It hits just below my belt.

LOVE this jacket. Seems to be of quality construction, very warm and soft. Doesn't shed (like some of the others do). Got a screaming deal on closeout price but had to go up a size due to availability. That said, I can layer up for winter. I'm very pleased with price and value. Definitely recommend this brand and jacket.


November 16, 2012

I bought this jacket last year, but we had a warm winter so I did not get the chance to use it until this and I love it! It is very warm and so comfortable. I also like how it looks dressier than most jackets so I can wear it with anything!

from Chicago

December 27, 2012

Received this for Christmas. Feel is very soft and comfortable with a great fit. It is super warm for its weight. It has a high collar which almost eliminates the need for a neck gaiter. The pockets are very versatile and generous. There is no hem cinch cord which is the only drawback. However, the cuffs and hem are made of a stretch material which provides good closure. The insulating fabric is Polartec Thermal Pro which is top of the line for warmth/weight ratio. Overall, this is an excellent jacket for the price.


January 04, 2013

I am very pleased with the purchase I made of this jacket. I've been wearing it everyday since I got it! It's super warm, so that I don't even need to wear a sweater underneath (I'm 5'5", 140, and ordered a medium that I could definitely fit a thick sweater under if I wanted). I enjoy the feel of the jacket; I feel so soft! I haven't experienced any pilling, or any other problems with the jacket yet (but please keep in mind that at this point, I've only had it for about a week). I was on the fence between this jacket and The North Face Denali until I went to go try on both in a store. I was still skeptical of the pros and cons of both once I walked out of the store, but I decided to stick with this jacket and I'm so glad I did. It's very flattering to the female figure. I LOVE it!!!

I have owned this jacket for a while now and it is the first one I grab on these cold Pacific Northwest Winter nights. This is by far the warmest, lightest jacket I own. I have a size small (I am 5 ft 100lbs) fits great. Able to wear whatever underneath and its not too bulky. I have the steam color and it goes with everything. Great jacket. Although I have been careful not to wear it if I will get it dirty, I am afraid to wash it. But I wear it in the rain no problem. Want one in every color!

I adore this jacket! It's like wearing your favorite fleece robe~ fit is true to size, jacket is very comfortable, as well as stylish. Plus it comes in great colors! I especially like the "extended" sleeve design and convenient upper pocket. I have the Monkey Woman Lite jacket as well but I like this one because it doesn't have a hood and is more suitable for casual wear. You can't go wrong with this one!
