Women's Power Stretch Fleece Half-zip
Fits a petite perfectly
When I first ordered one of these last year it wasn't exactly the fabric I was expecting but I kept it anyway because it fit so well. Petites are difficult to find. It has been great to wear on weekends and skiing so I purchased a second one this year. It does fit close to the body which was fine for me.

Delighted with this jacket, thinking of getting a 2nd one
I just started taking up jogging/running as a fitness activity 2 months ago and had been trying to get something light and warm to enable me to continue exercising outdoors in New Jersey winters (without the expense of paying for technical athlete's gear of another famous brand). I tried it today at 35+ degrees temps and windy outside, and with a fleece headgear for my head (and ears) and a warm pair of fitness pants, it kept me warm and comfortable without overheating (thanks to the mesh opening behind), and the sleeves w/ thumb holes were long enough to cover my knuckles without the need to wear gloves. (I'm between size 8 - 10 Regular and bought the Fiery Coral in Medium). The small zip sleeve pocket was perfect for cash, ID and the house key. I'm already thinking of getting a second color soon. I can see this being a favorite exercise item this winter! Great product , Land's End ! :)

Līked it so much I ordered a second color!
This jacket made me rethink winter running outdoors! It has provided perfect warmth and wind protection. I have never run in these Midwest winters before because I just could not get comfortable. This jacket has converted me into a lover of wintertime activity. Cannot wait for the snow to fall so I can use it for cross country skiing.

I LOVE this new jacket! It fits a bit more trim than the other styles with a lovely hand on the fabric so you look a bit more elegant while in casual clothes. I am 5'6" and 128# and the small fits perfectly with a jog bra or my favorite modal t-necks. As one reviewer stated, just turn under the cuffs if you do not wish to use the thumb holes and if you are a bit warm, the sleeves push up easily. The magenta is breathtaking and I am getting SO many compliments from even strangers and best of all, my husband! With the performance pants that are like the ones made a couple of years ago, this my new 'go to' outfit for walking, hiking, horseback riding, shopping, lounging.

Good - could use improvements
I was hoping to find a fitness fleece that I would love and there are some things that I really like about this fleece, but some things I don't. The good - love the color - the Indonesian Teal is rich and beautiful, love the thumb-holes - I always have cold hands so this is a feature I always look for, the fit - I prefer a closer fit. The not-so-good - the fabric wrinkles REALLY easily so it takes a lot away from the look, the fabric is much heavier than what I was looking for and for something billed as "stretch" it does not have a ton of stretch to it. I was looking for a fleece that would be good for strenuous winter sports like running and cross-country skiing, etc, but this fleece is probably too heavy and doesn't breath enough for that. It would be great for less active outdoor activities like walking, etc. Also, if you are going to want to put more than a very thin layer under it, I would size up. I am normally a small in LE tops, and got the small in this. The torso fits perfectly, but the arms are probably too tight to fit a long-sleeved layer under. The bottom line - I got it on sale so I will keep this top, but probably won't buy another.

Great for golf!!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this jacket. It moves with you without being cumbersome. I wear it all the time for golf but would be great for other sports as well. Not bulky and perfect fit!

Great for active sports because of the 4 way stretch
This shirt is great for layering in cold weather but you might need to buy the next size up. I use it for golf because it doesn't constrict my swing like most other jackets or sweatshirts. The four way stretch is definitely worth the extra money for my use. The one not-so-great feature about the shirt is that the front is not cut straight across, it dips down in the middle giving it a slightly "maternity look". But, the disadvantages don't outweigh the advantage of the power stretch material that moves with you as you bike, run, golf, or ski.

Okay, but not great quality
This fleece is meant for wearing while doing activites, so it's not the cozy feel-good fleece you may be looking for. The arms are too long for size, as is the middle section, but overall it is good. The worst part is that the material isn't thick enough, so it is always slightly wrinkly and you can see through it if it is white!

Nice, trim fit
Fits well, true to size of other Land's End clothing. Has a little pocket in the upper left sleeve for an iPod. The front zipper has a nice facing to pad the throat; however, the thickness of the facing makes it difficult to move the zipper open and closed past that point. Otherwise, a perfect shirt for walking in the cool mornings in Florida.
