I ordered this in 2XL, which usually fits--and that was before I lost 40lbs. I loved the look of the jacket, but it was tight over my ribs, the shoulders poofed several inches above my shoulders (maybe because of the waist problem) and the cuffs hung down to the end of my finger tips. The cuffs are not adjustable. Obviously, I returned it. Very disappointing.
Just the Right Fit!!! -

Great fit, nice looking fleece jacket. I have had no problems with the zippers on this jacket as some reviewers have stated. Just another great looking product from Orvis!!
My new favorite -
I got mine on sale, so I probably would not have paid full price. No problem with zippers. Very warm and wind proof. The best part is that it slides over my long sleeve shirts without having to pull the shirt cuffs back out every time. It is snug if you are the least bit "full" around the belly. No brand or style ever fits the same way for everyone, but this fits me fine. It is my new favorite.
No problems here -
Not sure what the other posters are talking about. No problem with the zippers, fit is as expected for a lightweight fleece. Very warm. Great as an underlayer.
zipper problem. do not buy without testing -

There seems to be a manufacturing problem with this product. Saw it first at Manchester, VT store. Went to buy it, but the zipper did not work cleanly, i.e., it was difficult to start. Salesperson agreed. So it was ordered from another store. Same problem. Called Orvis and explained the situation. They re-ordered it with a note to check the zipper. When the third jacket arrived.... same problem. Therefore, I am returning it and giving up.
Product needs to be redesigned -
By: Hoff from Kentucky
Unfortunately the problems that were brought up by earlier reviewer are still a problem. The overall sizing of the jacket is too small, as marked, the sleeves are too narrow for an average male and all the zippers just plain do not function. I would suggest that Orvis pull this item from sales and discontinue selling a product with so many errors in manufacturing. Ovis products are generally of much higher quality.
average purchase -

Thought better zippers could have been used for the amount of money it cost it . Order a size larger than normal. Also thought it would be heavier fleece for the cost. It is not that warm in the colder weather It is a good design and with a couple of up grades if could be great.
Loved it, but... -

Generally, this is a very nice fleece fishing jacket. I used it a few times for steelhead fishing and it was very warm--even in harsh winter conditions. The fabric allows for easy movement and there are ample pockets throughout. The problem is the zipper system. It's very difficult to use and, in many instances, is literally impossible to unzip once the jacket is on. I loved it, but ended up returning the item because of the flawed zipper design.
Good Product...Bad Sizing -
By: Ginnygdad from Radford, Virginia
I am about to return the third jacket. I normally wear a Medium in any Orvis jacket or shirt. I am the point now of seeing if an Extra-Large will do! The jacket is beautifully designed, and I would love to wear it. However, I am not confident of finding a comfortable fit.
Best Fleece Ever -
I purchased this fleece to keep me warm walking my Golden Retrevier and fly fishing It's the best one I've owned ever, and I have a few in the closet that just don't stand up to the job.
