To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The overall quality is very good at a fair price. I have faith in Amazon Basics products. In this brand I own a paper shredder, electronic cables, rechargeable batteries, butt wipes, etc.
ONLY ONE BAD…
The issue is the sleeves are exceptionally long as pointed out by other reviewers. All of my jackets and sweatshirts are size XL as with this one. I expected the sleeves to be a little long for my arm length. I normally just fold the “cuff” area back and call it done, but even after doing that the sleeves easily reached my knuckles.
Other than the sleeves the rest of the sweatshirt fit as expected.
I will be fair and I do realize “long” can be subjective. In my opinion this sweatshirt should be sold as a big and tall item or labeled as something related.
What I liked about this zippered fleece was the zipper. This seems to be a good metal zipper. Many zippered products at this price point use plastic zippers that don't work as well over time as a metal zipper. This zipper feels and functions very well. My only slight criticism would be the fit. I ordered what they call an XX-Large thinking it would be a 2XL equivalent but I don't think it is. I would describe it as XL and recommend you consider sizing up a bit. I do like the fact that there is no hood because it fits better under a light jacket without one. Woks pretty well as a cardigan sweater equivalent around the house in the winter because it is pretty warm and not bulky.
Amazon Essentials Men's Full-Zip Fleece Mock Neck Sweatshirt-Pink. The pink is more of a gray-pink, not the light pink pictured. Was disappointed in that. The fit is fine as I got a Large so it would fit over clothing loosely. The collar is very high and I found that uncomfortable. There are deep inside pockets which I like a lot; hadn't noticed that on description. It is heavier than I expected, which I don't need here in Florida, but would come in handy in northern states. The price was great and it pains me to return, but the color is just not true pink but rather looks like a pink that has been washed repeatedly and gets that gray tone to it.
This sweatshirt, for the $20ish that it is, is okay. But don't expect it to look great for too long. I wore it once, washed it once, and it's pilled up like crazy with little fuzzballs. Now I must admit since my goal was to have a cheap sweatshirt I can wear in my shop that isn't a hoodie, this will be perfect. But if you want it to look nice, then I'd skip this.
It's fine for a cheap sweater. Started pilling up heavily after a couple months of use an washing. I was hoping it would be nice enough to wear to the office, but it didn't look nice for long. Shrank vertically, not to the point of being a problem, but definitely have to tuck my shirt in.
According to the size chart, I'm a large. I ordered a large and it fit like a medium, so I returned it. No XL were in stock, so I had to wait. Today my XL came and in this batch an XL fits like a 2XL. I can't win. I'll donate this one and go to a brick & mortar where I can try it on.
The low rating is for the order execution and system of of customer service not for the item itself. Ordered the hoodless and received the hooded. I will drop it off at an AZ hub near my house and order again. Hassle. There is no where to leave a comment with my new order like "hey this is how you you screwed up last time please don't do it again". The product itself is fantastic. Unfortunately over-diligently protects themselves from their customers.
there aren't a lot of sweatshirt to choose from that have a full zipper, and no hoodie. the material was fine, and I hope it stays like it is after it washed. The only thing is that for a size XL it is cut a little tight.
