    As others have mentioned this top is more of a jacket than a fleece, which gives it pros and cons that you wouldn't get with a conventional fleece.

    + You wouldn't think it by looking at it, but it is extremely waterproof.
    + Pockets are warm, comfy and fairly large, you get about 3inches of depth below the zip.
    + It 's very light.
    + Fabric is pretty much halfway between fleece and jacket, so it's not quite as flexible as a fleece, but still a bit more comfy than your average jacket.

    - Fabric is not breathable, the waterproofing keeps sweat in!
    - Wrists of the sleeves are not elasticated, "Wind Blocker" does little to keep gusts from going up your arms.
    - It isn't as warm as a proper fleece.

    I was hoping to use this fleece/jacket just as a top over a shirt, taking advantage of it being a fleece and jacket combined - but it isn't really up to that sadly! It's basically a fairly thin coat without a hood. Nothing wrong with that, but you will probably want a warm layer underneath it to make up for its failings. However, if you don't mind wearing that extra layer underneath and can live without the hood it will do a nice job in any weather.

    5.0 out of 5 stars jacket 25 Jun 2012
    Colour Name:Pure Black| Size Name:XL - 54|Verified Purchase
    This is a really top bit of kit, more of a jacket than a tradional fleece, but excellent. Wore it over the weekend and got caught out in a squall and it really did work.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product 20 Oct 2012

    This is an excellent quality fleece. Its looks good and fits well (Had to return an XL size as Amazon's size chart suggest XL is for 42 size chest ..but for this fleece L = Chest size 42). I like the knitted look and it keeps you warm ..

    3.0 out of 5 stars Bit disappointed 21 Nov 2013
    Colour Name:Pure Black| Size Name:XXL - 56|Verified Purchase
    I bought this after reading the reviews which all seemed good.
    The jacket is fine but I found it not particularly waterproof - not even light showerproof. A walk in light drizzle resulted in damp shoulders under the coat and I don't find it particularly snug or warm. Nowhere near as warm as my previous fleece which sadly died after nine years good service.
    It's okay but I'll need a waterproof top layer for anything heavier than very light drizzle and I'll certainly need a thicker jumper or undergarments to keep me warm.
    So all-in-all it's okay but certainly not showerproof and a bit on the thin side to keep you warm on a chilly winter's day.
