I'm pleased with the fleece, I would have preferred a more muted or darker shade of green as I garden and enjoy bird watching and preferer not to be too bright but as green is often not available for women I bought it. The sizing is a bit snug for an outer garment in contrast to a small one I bought years ago that but is bigger bigger. Also I liked the popper opening style on the old fleece slightly more than the zip opening. The quality seems good though. I cant comment on washing yet.
