Lightweight yet dense/high-quality fabric. Washes well, ie. doesn't shrink — although I always put my EB-fleece in the dryer briefly (to remove any dripping water), and then lay it flat to fully dry. Pimento color (orange), is bright and cheery. The fabric used for the patch on the sleeve is a bit odd, but it's fine; it doesn't detract ftom the look of wearability of the fleece. I normally wear an EB-Small, but I got this fleece in a Medium based on others' reviews. That made it longer in the body and arms, but not problematically long even though I'm 5'4" and short-waisted. The fleece looks great with tights. I'm very happy with my purchase.
