      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Coldsnap Microfleece 1/4 Zip:

      I needed a fleece layer which was thin enough to not take up lots of space in a backpack. This did the trick. I'm 6'2", 180 lbs, 36 inch sleeve length, and the X-Large was just the right fit. It's a bit "sticky" to put on over long sleeves, but that's to be expected from many fleece garments unless the sleeves are lined with something slippery.

            Recently I cycled the Great Alleghany Passage trail using this fleece the middle layer of three. The daily temperatures never rose above 38 degrees and dipped as low as the high teens. While riding 60 miles per day, I stayed dry and warm thanks in-part to this layer. Although it seems a bit thin it provides more than enough warmth. I put it on on day one and never took it off. Thanks.

              Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Coldsnap Microfleece 1/4 Zip:

              I actually bought this to use in my layering system for winter hiking, but have only used it for snowboarding so far. I've always had problems finding a good layering system to wear snowboarding that keeps me warm without having to wear 4 or 5 layers. I wear this fleece over my base layer and underneath my hoody/hard shell jacket and I've yet to feel cold on the mountain this year. It's very light weight and breathes well. It is a bit "sticky" when putting on/taking off over a base layer, but most fleece shirts are.

                    Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Coldsnap Microfleece 1/4 Zip:

                    This is the best fleece ive ever had so far. Ive had it for a month or so. It is more comfortable than any fleece ive ever had. I could wear it for days. It is plenty warm for how lightweight it is. It is soft to the touch. My girlfriend says i feel like a teddy bear when i wear it. The fit is athletic but still comfortable. Im 5'6" and 160lbs with a more athletic build and the Medium fits me perfectly. I have an ems wind factor fleece and the coldsnap is more comfortable. its also more packable and light due to the lack of the windproof layer. I've mostly used it for everyday use, but i've taken it on day hikes and it performed just fine. I use it as either a lightweight insulating layer or a heavier middle layer between a T2 techwick baselayer and my icarus down jacket. I probably will be taking it on my next backpacking trip too if it calls for cold weather layering. Cant comment too much on durability as ive only had it a month, but it has seen pretty heavy use as i use it all the time and ive done a few day hikes with it. Its held up well so far. Highly recommended.

                                Mid weight fleece that is well constructed and does not pill or lose shape, very comfortable and breathable. Stylish enough that it doesn't look like athletic gear, you can wear this as a casual or professional pullover at work as easily as a mid layer on the slopes or on the bike.

                                  I have several weights of fleece tops, some with hand pockets and some without, and this is a good addition to my collection. It is very lightweight, which makes it ideal for backpacking where additional ounces add up, but layers are important. I have been using a thermal layer for cold evenings, and for overnight sleeping, and this top replaces my heavier top, which did not have a neck collar nor a zipper. My only complaint is that it is normal shirt length, just below the belt, but has no elastic or drawstring to keep out drafts. Otherwise, I am very pleased with the product, especially at a great price.
