Sized right, comfy

After ordering this hoodie, I had a moment of panic: the word "fleece" suggested that it might have that fleece texture that I like for some kinds of jackets, but not for an exercise hoodie. When it arrived, I was relieved to find that the maroon hoodie I received is indeed 80% cotton, and has the common mostly-cotton texture.
The maroon color is very nice, and if it fades out after a few washings, I will follow-up here. The large size is perfect for me (6'2" 190 lbs). My frame is longer in legs and shorter in trunk, so pullover hoodies often extend too far below my waist line--not so with this hoodie. If you are a long-torso person, you might want to bump up one size.
*UPDATE* After one washing, (cold water, tumble dry) the exterior of the hoodie is more pilly than I expected it would be, and now looks kind of frumpy. I will post pictures. I'm disappointed that after only one wash, this garment has gone from a snappy outside exercise pullover to a around-the-house only pajama. Would not recommend.
