I wouldn't buy this fleece again because it's a really thin fleece, and I was hoping for something a little more plush. That said, the fit is nice, the hood covers the ears well, and the color is beautiful.
Color Name: CharcoalSize Name: 2T
This is a fairly thin jacket and would work best as a layering piece. I bought it to go under my son's rain coat during high forties to low sixty degree weather (too hot for a rain-resistant coat, but chilly with only the rain coat). It works great for this purpose. For the range listed, I can dress him in a shirt that's thin enough to be comfortable indoors, and this layer keeps him comfortable outdoors as well. I also used it during the bitter cold snap to layer under his coat, and it also worked well for this purpose.
Sizing is true, with some conditions. I bought 2T, which is the size shirt my LO wears. The jacket is clearly meant to fit to the body. Which, again, is perfect for layering. A bulky sweatshirt would fit under this jacket in a pinch, but not great. A medium weight sweater fit fine, though.
This wouldn't work as a stand alone jacket except maybe 5 days a year (think beautiful, sunny, crisp fall day with no breeze). Mostly because it is too light to block any wind whatsoever. It would be fine to wear in an unheated indoor place (garage, barn) though. And, like I mentioned, it works great as an extra layer under a windbreaker, raincoat, etc.
