ALPHA FLEECE JACKET
- Product Review (submitted on July 5, 2019):
I bought this in OD as a replacement for a TNF 300 weight fleece that is worn out. All I can say is that this is one of the best fleece jackets I have owned to date. The pockets are well built and hold what they need to hold, the zippers seem rugged enough for general use (although plastic in consistent freezing weather has proven to fail), and the nylon reinforced areas block wind effectively. My one complaint would be the thumbhole warmers. I have never been a fan of these, as I would either wear a light glove, or nothing at all-the thumb things do nothing for me. The also make for a bigger wrist opening, allowing precious heat to vent from your wrist area, which isnt great for keeping your hands warm. Thats the ONLY complaint I have for this jacket though. I have owned it for only a month, and it has only seen light use as of yet-I plan on writing a more in depth review after a good winter's worth of use.
