First I like to say this is a review based on the 45 bucks I paid for a very well made jacket not for some competing overpriced 250 dollar fleece jacket. I can not begin to say enough about how nice of a tailored and thought out jacket this is for a mere 45 dollars and free shipping to boot! The jacket arrived from the shipper on the east coast all the way to me in 3 days! it actually arrived 1 day early than it was supposed to arrive. The color of the OD green jacket appears a bit darker in green or tone that the one pictured here which is fine with me. They do run a bit larger for their size than most jackets say 10% or 15% larger. I usually would wear say a large jacket and I am 5'8" 185lbs with broad shoulders and the medium fit me perfect. Not to big not to snug just absolutely perfect. Upon my initial look at the jacket it appears to be very well tailored and stitched. All the zippers work great and the cut and fit is very good. I really like the extra forearm and elbows nylon shell protection. The same protection runs along the shoulders to help shed rain. The rest of the fleece on the outside is a very very fine soft fleece yet stretchy and tough. Zippers are sturdy and smooth no hanging up. The inside of the jacket has a very fine black stretchy mesh fabric throughout. The jacket is very comfortable with no noticeable burs or rough spots of seams or lumpy seams. Very smooth and comfortable jacket. Honestly I can not see spending 250 or 200 dollars for a fleece jacket like Triple &$(*+_ and then crawl around on it in the field or out in a prone position outdoors. At 45 bucks if I am rough on this jacket and tear it or abuse it I dont feel bad. If your wondering if this is a cheap knock off of the more outrageous fleece jackets dont worry its a winner and a great value for the price or even twice the price. If you go to the shippers website you can actually see a chart of the measuring points on the jackets in inches so there is no question on the size you need to order and how it will fit. They were even nice enough to send me a nice window decal sticker "Dont Tread on me" which was rather nice. I hope this review helps those hanging on the fence if this is a good jacket or not. At this price I am ordering a Tan one too. I will try to post some photos as well so others can get a better look at the color of it.

I work in a flight-line (like an airport) environment in Washington state where its seldom warm or dry enough to go without some kind of outer clothing. I was searching for something better than a sweatshirt, but less than a winter jacket, something that had pockets, would keep me dry and warm but not be bulky. The Condor Micro Fleece fits that task with a 5-Star rating. It has on the left chest a zippered pocket that is durably designed. All of the zippers on this jacket are what I consider military grade- that is they aren't cheap. The left arm sleeve also has a zippered pocket- perfect for carrying a smart phone and employee ID badge.There are two waist level pockets- these are slip-u'r-hands-in out of the cold pockets. On the inside left is a 15 inch deep pocket. That's right....15 inches deep. It has about a 5.5inch mouth opening that is diagonal, but goes all the way down to the bottom of the jacket and feels as sturdy as the rest of the jacket. On the right inside is a 10 inch pocket that has a 6 inch mouth that is straight. On the left and right sleeve is a Velcro patch for insignia that measures 3.25" wide by 4" long. I wear a USA flag on the left, and a USMC eagle, globe and anchor on the right side.
The elbows and forearm are protected by double-layered material.
The cuffs are unique to me. They can be folded inside the jacket, or pulled out to go over gloves. And they have thumb hole to keep the cuff warmly around your hands.I am told that this is standard on most high-end winter coats. The idea is great. When you don't need the extra length, just a few seconds and you can tuck them back inside the arms of the coat. Brilliant.
I've worn this in some heavy wind and rain. My legs and head got wet. This jacket does not absorb rain. It tends to bead up and fall off. It is not wind-proof though. I would say it is breeze-proof. Winds of 35mph cut through it. Winds around 10mph aren't a problem. I will be reviewing another jacket later on that takes care of the wind.
This is a great option if you have to be exposed to inclimate weather for short periods. The functionality, and warmth give it 5 Stars.
People ask me where I got it from a lot. It is just a nice jacket all around.

Super awesome jacket! I'm the envy of my department. Has lots of pockets and the thumb holes in the cuff really help it stay put on cold nights when you add gloves! Great jacket!

First impression out of the bag was surprise - I didn't realize the top shoulder panels were more 'canvas' than fleece, but this makes sense in case you want to lug a backpack or otherwise sling a strap over the shoulder; fleece would take a wear really quick. There were a few 'loose strings' at seams that kind of fouled the right-side pocket zipper in my case, but pretty quickly ripped those out and found them to be excess, not a matter of a shoddy seam stitch. Was also initially concerned that the XL was too snug for me around the waist (I'm 6'2", about 240lbs, and not as much of it muscle as I'd like by a long shot), but turns out the drawstrings at the waist were somewhat cinched and releasing them made it feel just fine.

So, details: shoulder pocket check - nice well stitched nylon tab on the zipper pull, interior kind of fleecy so you can stow extra patches inside and they'll kind of 'velcro' in place if you have some that are shall we say more or less work friendly that you'd like to deemphasize on occasion. Chest pocket perfect for a good sized cellphone, probably too small for concealed carry (plus it would print, hardly concealed'), and does have a cord passthrough for a headphone (rubber 'grommet' type thing like on 'E-vest' type wear). Hand pockets at waist are not baggy, stay tight to the body when not in use, but slashes are big enough to comfortably get hands inside. Nice wind flap at main front zipper. Length feels good on me, not so short it kind of 'rides up' to my beltline with the waist cords cinched to a comfortable tightness. Extra cuffs at sleeves with the thumbholes are great too to keep sleeves from riding up and warm the wrists some, but on me don't quite work because I've got super long arms - I feel like I'm 'shrugging' just a hair when my thumbs are through the slots and I try to dangle my arms straight at the side - most people would probably be fine.

If I could change any one thing, I'd actually reduce the shoulder velcro patch panels a tad in size - most patches you find tend to be 2 x 3" for caps as well, so 4 x 4 vs. say 4 x 3 to let two stack would be quite enough in my opinion. That, and it could use a little more stretch or maybe even a bit of pleating/venting at the shoulderblades to let shoulders rotate forward a bit more freely.

I can't comment on durability or anything yet, but the fabric weights feel good and the stitching seams solid, aside from the one string incident mentioned already. Looking forward to wearing this around quite a bit now; its my new favorite lightweight fleece shell.

Wearing this without patches, with a dark French blue shirt and tie, and chocolate brown slacks on a cool morning to work got me several compliments...no one pegged it as a 'tactical jacket', more like a "modern-day Members Only look" (which was meant as a complement, I'm pretty sure, but definitely pegged the person saying so as still stuck on the 80's. :-D )

I order this based on other reviews I've read and let me tell you its awesome. Beside running a bit large I love this fleece. Somewhat mad I ordered it so late in the season that I didn't get to wear it much. Only downside I'd say is that the inside is a little ruff, other than that its prefect.

Jacket fits great, it does run a little too big but that is perfect for me as I'm 5'8 150lbs with broad shoulders and a small restricts movement and a medium is too baggy. Very warm (considering I live in Alabama where it doesn't get too cold) and comfortable. I really like how the weird thumbhole sleeve thing can be folded in because it keeps the sleeves right where I want them, and a large opening with a tight deal so my watch stays where I want it. Plenty of storage, could use a pen holder somewhere though. Velcro is good for those who are motivated to wear patches (like myself sometimes). The coyote brown is more brown than tan, but I really prefer that. Great jacket for the cost.

Here is an idea, instead of leaving a review that states "I love it, it fits me perfect" how about give a couple clues to your size and build? Ok? So at any rate, the product is a nice jacket and seems well built. No for the important part. I am 6' tall and 240lbs. I would say I have a very stalky build with a slight belly. I usually wear XL in just about everything so after reading a few reviews about this jacket running small I ordered the XXL. Not to my surprise it is very snug, so much so that I am returning it because anything other than a t-shirt underneath would be uncomfortable. Without knowing the size I would have tried this on and said it was a tight XL. Also, it is very short, I would like it to have came slightly below my belt but it stopped just at the top of my belt. Sleeves felt just slightly too long but I could have managed if it had fit elsewhere. So anyways I hope that helps some of you larger guys make an informed decision, I thought the jacket was nice and wished it had a better fitment.

Quality is TOP NOTCH I just don't like the sizing. It runs small as other have said but, what they SHOULD say is that it runs SHORT!!!

I am 5'10" @ 180lbs (medium build) and ordered the large. The fit is truly PERFECT but this thing is SHORT, it shows mid riff for god's sake. If you are short and stalky order a size up and you will be perfect but, if you are taller/slender good luck. It's going to be too short.

Probably the cheapest zipper I have ever used. It broke the very first time I tried it on.

I'm very disappointed because the rest of the jacket was awesome. Fit perfect, great color and not overtly "tactical".

Being a shorter guy, (5'10") but heavily muscular at 245lbs the 2XL fit me perfectly, but I could see it being a little short for people with longer torsos.

Decided to send it back and order another one, hopefully I just got a bad one.

I wore a similar fleece during my time in the Marine Corps and had no issues. The only potential issue I see with this fleece is the zipper is a bit tricky to get started and cheap feeling. So far have not had any problems with it. Over all it is a great jacket for the money. Better if it was made in the USA.
