What is warm, comfortable, and stylish? The French Foreign Legion Polar Fleece Jacket that we are now able to offer for sale to our customers. The Foreign Legion issues this polar fleece jacket as part of the utility uniform. The utility uniform is the most commonly worn uniform while a Legionnaire is operational in the field.
Just getting around to writing a review for this fleece, but with 2 Maine winters under the belt you know it's been thoroughly winter tested. This has been my go-to winter jacket since I bought it for winter hiking in the mountains of Maine and New Hampshire. It's been keeping me warm on summits when the wind has driven temps into the negative 20's keeping me warm and comfortable. At those temps I do have a Swiss Army wool sweater under the fleece, but on the way up, it's just the fleece up to the alpine zone. For errands around town in the Maine cold, this fleece stands on it's own.
The fleece itself has weathered well too. Repeatedly trekking around for 8 hour stretches with a backpack has not appreciably worn the fabric. The zippers still do their job, and the pilling is VERY minimal. If this ever goes on sale again, I'll pick up another for my wife since she like to use mine when watching the dog do his business on a cold winter morning and then complains when she has to give it back.
Warm,warm,and still warm
Review byvan Verified Buyer
Order my first one years ago in XL size and was happy with it. Here in the south the weather is weird so I wanted a jacket that could handle the winter here and this one fit the book. When I saw one in 2XL I had to get it as they are hard to come by in any size. All I can say is very warm down here...hehe.
Great product, I really enjoy this jacket for the quality and comfort

Waited till back in stock and order just my size 112. Will match my MVP parka as under layer or stand alone fleece. Have a recycled Patagonia fleece and this is noticeably better in the harshest of weather it was design for , tall full zip at neck to keep snug get yours in size while they last top mil quality!!!
Review byJ Verified Buyer
I loved my fleece so much, I wanted another as a spare. When I found they were sold out, I was kicking myself but then they were offered for sale again. The second one came and it's even better than the first. My old one was very OD green. The new one is more of a jade green; it's a very nice color. Also, the fabric on the new one is much softer and looks less military. I've received several compliments on it. I could not be happier with this jacket as it is excellent quality and serves as both a fall and winter jacket for me.
The best fleece money can buy
Review byAR Verified Buyer
I haven't really beat this one up yet, so I can't rate its durability - but I probably own between 15 and 20 fleece jackets that I have accumulated over the years, including top brand 200 dollar "wool" fleeces. This is easily the quickest to warm me up, and by far the most comfortable and feature rich. I bought two, another to give to a friend - but honestly, I will probably keep it so I have another once the other wears out. It loses one star for quality: one fleece fits differently than the other. Not a big deal, but something to point out. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this product at this price.

Review byDavid Verified Buyer
The sizing was perfect and the quality is outstanding. I''m 6' tall and 240lbs, it fits very well.
Very Nice Jacket
Review byDuke Verified Buyer
Tough to rate a piece of clothing before wearing it for a while, but preliminarily this jacket appears to be a well made item. Looks to be quite a bit thicker than any other fleece jacket I own, feels like it would be very warm. Size tends to run a little large, especially in the sleeves. Very happy with the product to date.
