Likes: Soft, comfortable 'sweater' that you can wear just about anywhere. I like that the fleece is on the inside, and the outside feels more like a soft sweater material. It's warm and fits close to the body, so you can layer on top of it. Can't say much about the durability of it yet, as I've only had it for a short time, but it does seem to be well made and built to last.
I also love that Patagonia is taking an ethical, responsible approach to manufacturing these.
Dislikes: It seems to run a bit small, but it is intended to be a slim fit sweater so this was expected. No problem getting a base layer under it, but if you plan to wear more than a base layer and t shirt under it, you might want to size up.
