This jacket is a must have, honestly. I have been wearing the black one for 4 years through the Alaskan winters and then finally decided I needed to buy a new one. I ordered the white and I love it, so warm, comfortable, and flattering which is very important to me. This jacket goes a long ways and will keep you cozy at any time of the day.
I would recommend this product.

Love this jacket; have had it for 10 years and wear it everywhere, including to the office during cold cold days. Now I wear it to the barn and while riding my horse. Love it so much I bought my mother one! It is wonderful and worth the cost.
I would recommend this product.

I've worn this jacket approximately 20 times and its poor quality is showing. For one, my car keys have torn the front hand pocket seam. I would hope that such an expensive fleece jacket would be engineered to withstand a set of car keys. Also, the grey material at the wrists has pilled very badly. The jacket looks like I've worn it for years instead of a couple of months. I'm very disappointed with it and I wouldn't purchase it again or recommend it.
I do not recommend this product.

I got this jacket as a Christmas gift for my wife and she absolutely loves it! Its soft inside and out including the pockets. One of the best features is the tapered sleeve that has the elastic part at the end so your sleeves dont drag. Its super warm and looks great. Cant ask for much more than that!
I would recommend this product.

I am only not giving this jacket all 5 stars because I am normally a large in jackets and could have used a medium in this one, even with a sweatshirt or something bulky under it. It love the gray color I got and had a tough time deciding which one to get bc all of the colors are so great. I would say that if you are a true medium in shirts to order that size, even if you sometimes order larges for jackets. This is a bit larger running. I love it though and think the quality is amazing!
I would recommend this product.

I have three of these now. I love them. I do not like to wear hoods very often so the lack of a hood doesn't bother me in the slightest. I love the style of the jacket. The waist is perfect, doesn't ride up and isn't too baggy when you wear the right size. My upper arms fit tightly in some coats and this style sleeve provides extra room where needed without being too long. This jacket is warm, comfortable to no end.
The only downside is I'm scared to wash them very often as one of them melted a wee bit in the dryer on the interior of the jacket. Plus I'm always apprehensive when washing my fleece as I don't want to lose the smooth plushness of them.
I would recommend this product.

This is a great jacket - looks great and is warm - what more do you want? I got wild cherry and it's a beautiful dark purple. Everyone comments how fuzzy warm it looks!

I've had this jacket for about five years, and it's great. It is very soft, but over the years, the fleece has matted down quite a bit on the back and under the arms (but it's still very soft).
I would recommend this product.

This jacket is so comfortable and so warm. My only complaint is that it runs a little short. Other than that, this has become my new favorite jacket!

I wore my Monkey Woman fleece for less than one season. I was working outside every day as an Outdoor Instructor. The fleece kept me warm at first, but after a few months, it pilled and started wearing thin. Also, my drive to work was a bit long, and places on my chest and abdomen got rubbed down flat by my seatbelt. It was not fluffy soft after one wash. I air dried it, but that didn't make a difference. It just got matted down. For the price they ask, the fleece should be of better quality. I wish I had returned it, but after 30 days, they wouldn't take it back.
I have a long torso, so I got a Medium to make sure it was long enough, but it looked bulky on me in the waist.
I do not recommend this product.

This is my favorite jacket that I own. I use it alot. The only thing is that even when mountain climbing and hiking, I find it a little bit too warm. I start sweating in it a few minuites after I put it on. Personaly, I get cold easily, but this is just too warm.

I love it when the weather is freezing and as a jacket when it's just cool. It's so warm and fuzzy, but still breathes. Every cool day when I walk to the closet I just want to snuggle up in my Monkey Woman, but sadly I only have one -it's starting to seem as if all my most comfortable clothes are Mountain Hardwear. I also recommend any 'butter' shirts by Mountain Hardwear to complement this jacket as a mid- or base-layer or even just to wear solo on those in-between days while hiking. Two versatile pieces.
I would recommend this product.
