The hooded Berghaus Men’s Chonzie Fleece Jacket is a fashionable, functional layering option. An excellent warmth-to-weight ratio makes this fleece a versatile option for year-round use as a cool-weather outerwear piece or an insulating midlayer when temperatures plummet.
Stylish and functional, the Berghaus Men’s Chonzie Fleece Jacket looks great and it has an impressive warmth to weight ratio that lets it serve as a cool weather top layer or a cold weather mid layer. Let’s take a closer look at its fit and its features.
The jacket is constructed of a 290 gram 100 percent polyester fleece fabric. It has got a knit face which gives it its stylish appearance. It has got a really nice brushed backing which gives it a really comfortable feel next to skin. The jacket does have a nice full length zipper, so easy in, easy out, also some ability to vent. There is a fleece backing or draft guard behind that zipper which bolsters its warmth.
As far as the fit is concerned, just a nice comfortable feel. You do have stretch or elasticity here at the cuffs as well as at the hem. It is a hooded piece, which is also a nice touch. It kind of bumps warmth up a little bit there when you need it. And there is also some stretch fabrication around the edging there, too, so you get a nice comfortable fit at the hood as well.
Another feature I would like to call out here is on the sleeves. So talked about that elastic lining, but there are also integrated thumb holes here on the sleeves, a feature I always really, really appreciate. Kind of extends the length of coverage if you are wearing it without gloves. If you are wearing it with gloves, it does away with that separation that can occur between the end of your sleeve and the beginning or the start of the glove. So really ensures greater warmth and keeps cold air from getting in. The design here is such that if you are not using the thumb holes, they are kind of hidden away. So it doesn't look overly techie from that end of things.
A couple of pockets to call out here on the jacket. You do have zippered hand warmer pockets, again, just that great fabric. So from the inside here you have got nice warmth and a really comfortable resting point for your hands. Also one small zippered pocket here on the sleeve, great for keys or credit card, essentials that might want close at hand, but also safely out of the way.
Really good looking piece, really comfortable piece. Whether you are using it for layering or just wearing it all on its own, the Berhaus Men’s Chonzie Fleece Jacket, a really nice piece for year round use.
