Men's MicroChill™ Lite Zip T 4 5 2 2
Fills the Bill! Wanted something with a slightly larger fit to wear over short sleeved polo shirts in the office. Works like a charm! Warm and Light! December 17, 2014
Get the non-lite version, and/or a Cragger, instead I virtually live in MH Microchill fleeces, so when I saw the new lite version I had to try it. Unfortunately I quickly hit two problems. First, the fit runs markedly wider than the non-lite version. It is about an inch wider in the body and wider (but not longer) through the arms. In combination with the thinner fabric, a large just hung off me - an athletic 6'3" 180lbs - in a way that a large of the regular Microchill fleece never has. As the arm length and body length aren't longer in proportion to the greater width, a medium would be way too short in those areas. It seems strange to me that it is not cut the same as the non-lite version - or, even better, nice and athletic like the Cragger. Second, I struggled to find a use for this fleece. The non-lite version is already so lightweight and low bulk anyway, I just didn't find a temperature regime in which I preferred the lite to the non-lite. If I want an even lower bulk - and a much better fitting slim cut - top, then I reach for my Cragger. The basic construction is the same as the non-lite version, and the fabric seems great, but I couldn't find a niche for it among my outdoor tops. September 19, 2014
