The irony of this fleece is that the conditions that make it useful are not life-threatening, and a generally nothing more than a bit uncomfortable. Its a great layering piece, but its best use is just throwing it over a t-shirt or over your shoulder for a quick hike or a night out when you know that you might be a little chilly later.
It breathes very well, and is a great choice for high energy activities when you might start out chilly but know you'll warm up. The fit is great, athletic as always, since its Arcteryx. Though, that also means its a little pricey.
I'm not sure I've seen many fleeces that are this lightweight and fill this niche. Its not for everyone, but when you find the sweet spot for this fleece you'll keep coming back to it for just that right amount of warmth.
I usually put on fleece or hoodie in the office but they too thick, heavy and bulky. The Delta LT is perfect over a t-shirt for indoor use. I used it once for groceries shopping in the evening and perfect for California fall weather. Fits well over T-shirt but not over working shirt since it is slim fit. I am wearing to office for casual Friday :-) Love the color, the material and very comfortable for indoor use.
This jacket has revised my definition of comfortable. When I wear it, I'm always the perfect temperature. It fits close without clinging, it doesn't ride up when I reach up, there is no bulkiness or extra fabric to get in the way, and everyone compliments the styling. It's one weakness is that the collar isn't lined and the fabric doesn't take kindly to razor stubble. It's a small price to be this comfortable though.
This fleece is fantastic? I have lots of gear and equipment. I do everything from Climbing, Hiking, and Snowboarding. This is the fleece to wear when you are "active". It is not the fleece for sitting around. I have the black fleece and have noticed that it faded a bit after heavy washing. However, it fits well (athletic build) and has become very comfortable like a favorite blanket.
Great all around fleece. Nice design and details in the construction. Typical 100wt fleece that is perfect from wearing around the house to an underlayer under a shell. Slim cut means if you like a baggier fit size up. long arms which is nice since a lot of fleeces by other companies tend to ride up my monkey arms.
I bought this as a gift, so I didn't get a chance to use it, but this fleece was incredibly nice... as is everything from Arc'teryx. It's definitely nice enough to where in places where you're supposed to be dressed nicer than an average climbing bum.
Warm, soft, perfect fit. This fleece has everything you could want. I have broad shoulders and this fleece still fits me properly. It feels like it is custom made and I have gotten compliments on it. I am 5'11" and I ordered a medium.
Perfect mid-layer, or for use in the pub apres, just right for when there is a slight chill and you don't want a sweater or anything bulky. (Imagine a loose fitting long underware top with a zipper.)
This jacket is great for layering. Definitely wicks away moisture and has great temperature control.
