This windproof fleece from Jack Wolfskin is slightly loose, but it covers your hips nicely and is spot-on for arm length. The soft fabric is also comfy to move around in. However, the baffle might snag your hair, and a higher collar with protection over the zip would be good. A very warm midweight option with enough flexibility in the cuffs to allow some adjustment when you get hot. It packs down well, but mesh in the pockets for extra ventilation would be nice. The main zip feels pretty flimsy too.
Verdict: A totally windproof and very comfortable offering, but a little pricey. It would also benefit from some ventilation and would be snug enough without the collar baffle.
