This sweater is a classy-looking step up from a basic fleece jacket. It has a knit exterior and a soft fleece lining. There are two large zip pockets that are big enough for your keys, phone, and anything else you need to take with you. This is a lighter/medium-weight jacket that is perfect for cool weather without being too bulky. I like that the length on this is a bit longer. I ordered the large. The length from the base of the neck to the hem is 30" which covers my hips (I'm 5'5"). I wanted the black version of this but wasn't a fan of the pink zipper, so I ordered the gray, which has a white zipper. The gray looks good and matches everything. I also like that I can machine wash and dry this sweater and it still looks great. One unexpected bonus with this sweater is that dog hair does not stick to it as easily as my other fleece or knit jackets. With 3 dogs, it is great to have an outdoorsy sweater with this feature!
This has quickly become my go-to sweater this winter and I'm loving it so much I might just have to order one in the red as well! I have the grey, since it goes with so many things. I was worried at first that I might need to size up. Spyder clothing has a pretty fitted feel to it, and I wanted something I'd be able to wear over various tops. But in the end I went with my normal size, a large. I'm a pretty average size 12 in women's clothing. The large fits so well, and even room to spare! I thought for certain it would be a snug fit, but not at all. It's not baggy, just has plenty of room and I love it. It's warm and so well made.
This is a really nice jacket. The interior is super soft and warm. It fits as expected. There are two zippered pockets on the outside which is so nice so that I don't lose stuff when doing active sports outside. It also has an internal pocket (with no zipper) that's a bit bigger the two outer, zippered pockets. It does a good job of blocking cold breezes and will do OK in damp weather (though I wouldn't wear it in the rain on purpose). I wish that it had a hood, but it's great without it as it can be used as an extra layer, if needed. Overall, really nice jacket that I'd recommend.
