              Jacket was for a college student. He loves that it's warm, wind resistant, and not bulky

                Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's WindFactor Fleece Jacket:

                I bought this jacket on sale from EMS. Shipping took a little long (I'm on the west coast, though). My initial impressions of the jacket are that the build quality is very high and it does a great job keeping me warm. Both the inner and outer fleece layers are very soft, the stitching is nice, and the zippers work flawlessly.

                I typically wear tighter cut clothing and I think the fit of this jacket is excellent - not too tight but also not too loose. It's not baggy on me by any means and there remains enough room for me to layer up underneath. I do find the sleeves to be slightly baggier than I'd like (maybe I just have short arms?)but it is no big deal. Because it looks great and is highly functional, this is a very versatile jacket - great for a chilly evening outing in town or for a weekend getaway in the great outdoors.

                The only gripe I have for this jacket is the size of the chest pocket, hence the 4 star review instead of a perfect 5 stars. It is very small and frankly, not very useful because of it. You might be able to fit some car keys or a small folding knife or maybe a compact wallet (it won't fit my phone, which is a Samsung Galaxy S3). It would be very useful if it were maybe 20% bigger.

                All in all, it's a great jacket if you can get it on sale. It rivals similar jackets from the other major brands at a fraction of the cost. Though I can't comment on the longevity of the material and build quality, I am fairly confident that it'll last. I just wish it had a bigger and more useful chest pocket.

                      Nice casual jacket for running about,activities, or just to wear inside and not push up the thermastat. Has an updated design and remains easy. Seems to be "well wearing" fabrics - to early to tell.

                            Unlike a prior "windstopper" jacket that did not effectively block the wind, this Windfactor jacket appears to do just that. Although not advertised as a true cold weather coat I have worn it at temperatures at or just below freezing with a little layering and have been comfortable even with a moderate wind. It's ability to block the wind is what makes it work. Very satisfied with this jacket.

                            I've had this jacket about 2 weeks and love it so far. It's great for casual wear or hiking etc. My only minor complaint is the fit is a little snug. You have to watch what you layer under it.

                              The jacket is really warm, made well. I ordered an XL mens and it didn't fit me or my husband, it was tight, and we take an extra large. So my skinny teenage son got the jacket.

                              Bought as a gift for father-in-law who still does a lot of outdoor yard work in New Hampshire. Wanted to keep him warmer with an easy extra layer, and this will do the trick. Stylish enough to wear anywhere, as well. He was very happy with his gift!
