I have purchased half a dozen of these in various colours over a period of 5 years and the oldest of these still gets it done even though I wear them all the time. Just as I have found with all Craghoppers clothing that I've purchased, these micro fleece are well made and use very good quality materials. It's difficult not to get a great fit as the sleeves meet at the neck line so there is no seem to sit at your shoulder. They wash great and it takes a long time before they start to bobble, no need to iron them and they dry out really fast if you get caught in a shower.

Very lightweight and easy to pack down in a rucksack, super soft and comfortable and, if you can pick one up for £15 or less, they are a bargain. You'll get four seasons out of it too - great over a t-shirt in Spring and Autumn, fantastic layer during winter months and light enough to carry in the summer in case the sun disappears. I have used them for Walking, fishing trips, working outside, holidays, and so on - very versatile piece of clothing that won't disappoint.

I think these are great fleeces. I have bought several of them over few years and I have had really good use out of them. They are lightweight but very warm and comfortable. They are relatively thin and are not at all bulky so you can easily wear one under a normal waterproof jacket. In my opinion they are not suitable for very cold weather but are ideal for use in most other weather conditions as an additional layer over a thermal and under a waterproof. I got them for under £20 at Amazon and consider them good value at that price. I am six feet two inches tall with a 40 inch chest and I found the size extra large was a perfect fit. They wash really well and do not thin out or bobble. They are really well made and last for years. The only downside, in my opinion, is that they are not suitable for really cold weather conditions. Otherwise thoroughly recommended.

I used this layer when I went to Peru - The guides recommended having something to cover your arms to prevent sunburn due to the altitude. This is thin enough to provide protection without making you sweat. I've also used this as a layer in the winter and it insulates you nicely if your coat hasn't got a fleeced inside.

I bought this because I wanted a thin, lightweight fleece. It was exactly what I was after. It is one of the thinnest and lightest I have found, but still very warm to wear. Perfect when the weather is slightly chill but does not warrant a heavier top.

What can I say that hasn't already been said? I've been wearing these tops for more years than I care to remember and still love them. They're so practical but with some style so can be worn almost anywhere. Easy to care for when away in our motorhome and no need for an iron. Buy with confidence.

I normally take a small size (I'm 36" chest, 32.5" waist) and found the small Basecamp fleece to be a good fit, not quite slim fitting but not baggy like some fleeces tend to be. The Craghoppers name on the chest is discreet, particularly on the "granite" colour (black on grey).

The material is soft, thin, stretchy, lightweight and surprisingly warm. I've been wearing it around the house in preference to heavy jumpers during the recent cold weather. It's also great for running - either as an outer layer in dry weather, or under a rain jacket. You can wear it with the zip open and the collar folded down, or (to get really snug) do the zip all the way up and turn it into a polo neck.

These are a great item, such a reasonable price and they are really good quality. I bought one for my boyfriend and he's since ordered more! Arrived in good time with good packaging :) my boyfriend now lives in them!

A good quality, lightweight fleece for a good price.

The fleece fits well, is comfortable and is perfectly warm for casual use. More suited to strolls or a trip into town than a night on the mountains (presumably hence the 'basecamp' name).Cheaper than Berghaus or Northface equivalents, but just as good in quality for casual use.

For more serious and frequent outdoor use in cold weather conditions I'd recommend looking at something thicker unless you're layering with good quality undergarments and a decent jacket.

It is smart enough to wear to work if your office has a 'business casual' dress code.

Overall I'm very pleased and likely to buy another.
