Quest Fleece Snap Packable Anorak
- Anti Pill
- Secure Pocket
The brilliance of fleece is the simplicity of its go-anywhere, do-anything style and performance. For this snap-neck anorak, we started with classic, 200-weight polyester fleece because it offers cross-seasonal comfort and lightweight warmth. We added a hood with three-piece construction for a great fit. And then we made it packable—you can fold it into the front pocket and turn it into a travel pillow. That's comfort even when you're not wearing it.
Models shown are 6'0" to 6'2" tall, wearing size M/32x32.
- Snap front placket for quick venting
- Dual-entry front pocket (top and sides) with secure zip under flap
- Folds into pocket to create a pillow that's fleece on one side, smooth polyester on the other
- Classic; A universal fit. Not too slim, not too relaxed on body.
- 100% polyester

Ordered this as something to wear camping and maybe backpacking. I do like the concept: packable, lightweight, stretchy, comfortable, subdued color doesn't show dirt - and it excels at all of those things. My issue however, comes primarily from the fit and the bottom hem specifically... So you know how most hoodies out there have some kind of ribbed hem, usually somewhat elastic, that kind of keeps it close to you? This doesn't have that. It doesn't even have a drawcord (or something similar) to bring it in closer. This, combined with the sizing (short and wide?), give it what I can best describe as a "maternity look". One of the main reason I love EB is because the generally offer "tall" sizes, and I typically wear a Medium-Tall (I'm 6'1", 185lbs, athletic build). I ordered this in a Large to make sure the sleeves were long enough, but somewhere between the unrestricted bottom hem that still barely reaches my waist(?) and the fact that there's enough room in the stomach section to fit another small person, I look as if I'm trying to let my flow-y sundress obscure a baby bulge - think: PacMan ghost. Now, if you happen to be a shorter, wider person, this would probably not look as ridiculous on you. But one last issue that would still likely plague you is the fact that if you lift your arm(s) above your head, you immediately expose your stomach/lower back ...not so great if you're planning on Climbing, Hanging a bear bag, or laying any sport/game that involves Throwing. I went camping recently and every time I reached to put a log on the campfire I got a cold, breazy reminder on my lower back that this hoodie isn't built for moving around. Overall: I think if the sizing/fit was adjusted and/or tall sizes were included, and some kind of a hem/drawcord was added, this could be a real winner. I think I'll try to hem it, but in its current state it I don't see it really pleasing anyone. I do wear it around the house (like i said, it IS comfy) but not out in public.
