ALPHA FLEECE JACKET
- Product Review (submitted on July 5, 2019):
I was so impressed with one that I bought two, one for myself and one for my wife. This easily has to be the best jacket I've purchased in a long time and can tell by the way it's made that it will last a long time, which is something I can't say about previous comparable jackets I've bought. I would like to see a couple of changes in future runs maybe. First would be the main double zipper. I've noticed through regular movements that the bottom zipper does not stay very well and starts to seperate up towards the main zipper unit. Replacing this with a heavy duty single zipper would be preferred. The second thing is the cuffs with the thumbhole. I can't say that I'll be using the thumbholes very often, if at all. I actually find that when moving my arms during my work (my arms are actually a bit shorter than the sleeves themselves) that sometimes the sleeves go over my hands and trying to pull the sleeves back results in either the thumb or index or middle finger getting caught in the thumbhole. Having either a fully elastic cuff or an adjustable velcro cuff like on current military issue shirts would resolve the issue of the sleeves covering the hands for wearers. Despite my little nitpickings, this is still a five-star jacket for me and I can see myself buying several more over the years.
