Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Warm, but oddly fitting So this thing is pretty true to fit. However its a little snug on the arms but a little lengthy over the wrist. I'm afraid if I moved up to a large, it would fit a little better on the chest and arms but I would have a bunch left over in the wrist area in terms of length. This thing is warm and is going to make a great mid-layer. November 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Soft,Cozy,Lightweight This Jacket is not some overly ridiculous technical piece. It has a classic look with solid craftsmanship. I honestly just use it as an office jacket now and it is a cozy layer to throw on when cold. I will use it to layer with when the winter arrives. I had a similar thermo fleece from TNF. From past experience this is not something that can be used as a stand alone if it is super cold as wind passes through. It works best for a lightweight>warmth layer. I have never been let down by a Mountain Hardware product. At this cost this is a great buy. September 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fleece For Layering I'm 5'10 and 175Lbs so I purchased a size M. This jacket fits slightly snug, but not so much as to restrict movement. A perfect fit. It works great under the Nirtous down jacket (size L jacket for some reason) with no thought of being cold down to 0 degrees F with a regular t-shirt as the base layer. This fleece is packable and it doesn't wrinkle. The elastic around the bottom of the fleece is great because it keeps wind from blowing up under you. My favorite fleece. Only rated the quality as good because I haven't washed it many times yet and I don't know if it lasts or not. February 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by second monkey man jacket I purchased a monkey man jacket a couple years ago. It was awesome. Minus the pockets and freakishly long arms. It was one of the warmest jacket ever. Now this new version. The new version not as warm, but excellent fit. Pockets are lined; much better. Sleeves are a little shorter but could use about a inch less. Overall, once again completely satisfied. Yes, I am being as objective as possible. Though, it is hard since the Monkey man is the best on the market period. Dollar for dollar, quality, fit, and finish. December 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely comfortable This is one of the most comfortable jackets I've ever owned. It's extremely soft in the flexibility of the fabric makes me forget I'm wearing a jacket. I get very warm in the jacket, although it's not all that wind resistant. I would absolutely purchase this jacket again. The fit of this jacket is slightly athletic and it's not baggy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Not like older version This is not the loft as the older version, much thinner, not quite monkey fur. I miss the older version. December 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best fleece on the market This is the best fleece on the market. Thicker than other fleeces so it will actually add warmth yet highly breathable for strenuous activities in cold weather. Great for mountaineering and backcountry skiing. More pockets would be welcome but still the best. Get one then you will notice everybody else also has one because they are awesome. September 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket The new monkey man is incredible. I love that it has a bit longer arms and fits snug through the torso. I have a medium torso and always have to order XL to fit my arm length. Finally a jacket that fits!!! January 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Soft My new favorite jacket!! January 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Definitely "Monkey Man" in the Arms This is an awesome jacket for the sheer fact that it is super warm! I can wear it by itself on most days down to 25 degrees and under a Goretex shell down to -5. I bought this as a great zip in for my ski shell and honestly, it's too warm unless its colder than 10 above and even then it's can get too warm if I'm really working hard. It breathes well and dries fast. The downside to this jacket is that it's quite long in the sleeves (like 4-6" too long). It is truly made for someone with monkey arms. I'm 6'0", 215 and the Large fits me great throughout the body, but it is still quite long in the arms. Another thing they could do to improve this would be to sew little "thumbloops" into it. I had my extra capable mother use her sewing abilities to add some thumbloops to mine, and it fits much better (I always use them). December 16, 2013
