        I bought my first one, in true blue, about a month ago and my second on, in cardinal red, just recently. They have instantly become my go-to hoodies. They feel wonderful -- warm but no hot. They look terrific; the athletic fit prevents them from looking sloppy. And they look great with chinos and jeans. I agree with others who say they're too casual for office wear but they're great for everything else. I'm 6'1", 230 lbs, with a weightlifter' build, and the XL fits terrifically.

        Excellent Active Fleece Hoodie

        Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's High Route Fleece Hoodie:

        I'm 6'2" and 180 lbs and the medium tall is a perfect fit. The big contrast between this and the Cloud Layer line is that the High Route is more athletic. It is lighter weight than the Cloud, and less warm if worn without the hood, but it has really heats you up with moderate activity if you use either the hand-covers or the hood. The hood is fascinating; it looks pretty stupid, but it has a kind of ski-mask vibe that really traps in heat when the jacket is fully zipped up. I primarily use this product for running (in the winter, at night) but it would be great for lots of other outdoor activities. I do think that it looks too athletic for the office, but not necessarily for leisure. Note: it does shed a bit onto whatever shirt I'm wearing under it. Definitely a good deal at half off.

          If you are just looking for a jacket to go around town in cold weather or for short 1 mile hikes then this jacket is ideal, especially at the sale price. I purchased this jacket for my long day hikes during the Pennsylvania winter. Here's the results:
          -I get slightly overheated in temps above 42F once I hit mile 3 but I do have a small day pack on which traps body heat. This jacket is warmer than I would thought. I would imagine I could use it in temps as low as 10F as long as I am moving.
          -In a light rain, you will not get wet. Prolonged or heavy rain is different story.
          -Rubbing up against thorn bushes didn't tear the jacket material or pinch my skin.
          -Length is slightly too long on my waist on my XL size.
          -Arm length is slightly too short when I use the thumb holes but doable.
          -Chest pocket fits my Smartphone with case but too tight with ear piece plug in phone causing me to leave zipper open an inch. I really like the hole in chest pocket for ear phone cord.

          decent quality, Horrible fit.

          By JJ

          Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's High Route Fleece Hoodie:

          decent quality fleece if you are looking for something pretty basic and comfortable for around town use. Definitely not super technical if you are looking to use it as a mid layer on a serious back country adventure when you compare it against what else is out there, though the sale price reflects this. I removed stars because of the fit mostly, even though i realize that everyone fits a little differently. I'm 6'4'', 190lbs, with long arms, so I can be tough to fit. Usually an XL fits my shoulders and arms, but has a little extra room in the midsection. This fleece however had an absolutely ridiculous amount of extra material around the waist, way more than seemed appropriate for anyone XL size. The cut was terrible and super boxy despite this being advertised as an "Active fit". If you aren't worried about sleeve length, I would definitely suggest sizing down. I own a cloud layer fleece in the same size and it fits OK, with just a little extra room in the waist. Beware of extreme variation in all eddie bauer clothing lately, just really disappointed in their sizing quality control.
