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.
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.
I have taken this jacket with me to many cold places around the world and it has yet to let me down, I am always protect from the cold. I would recommend this product for it's quality.
Great jacket! My new favorite. Never seen a fleece jacket this heavy. I'm 6ft 240 and the 112 size fit me great I usually wear xl-2xl depending on clothing. This thing appears to be very well made, considerin g another.
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!!!
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.
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.
Works great with a British windproof smock.
The sizing was perfect and the quality is outstanding. I''m 6' tall and 240lbs, it fits very well.
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.
This its me second French Army Polar Fleece Jacket that I own. The other one I bought from somewhere else and was from 2006 and maybe made in Germania. I had opportunity to take the first jacket in the field and its a outstanding jacket at cold, wind and humidity and also its "addicted". I m all ready I am looking for a smaller size for a more "athletic fit ". However, KS jacket its exactly like its described and the difference between this two jackets its the color ( my first one its a olive one ), the zipper its not a YKK ( maybe) and its not made in or by Madrid ( like the one that KS have) and the year too. KS jacket its 2001 and its a 112 L. From what I see between this jackets the 112 C its little smaller then 112 L. Buy until you can and I am sure you will be a happy camper. I got the French Parka too and its a perfect fit with the fleece jacket. Now, its time to find the bibs that in France where issue together with the Parka ;)
I have a number of fleece jackets, but this one has the thickest material. Therefore I consider it the best, even though I paid more for one of my others.
I love this jacket! I've paid way more for commercial fleece jackets that couldn't hold a candle to this one. The fleece is very thick and strong. Quality construction. It keeps me warm in the cold, but it is also comfortable to wear inside, unless in a very warm room. I've had one for two winters now and wear it frequently - it still looks like new, aside from some very minor pilling on the reinforced elbow areas. I like the high collar and the elastic waistband. I'm 5'8", 180 lbs, and the size 112 (XL) fits me great. I recently ordered another to have on hand, just in case I ever manage to wear this one out - the new one came in a sealed plastic bag, perfect for long term storage.
Really nice jacket, perfect for spring/autumn and on par with anything going for $100. Thick fleece is great at blocking wind, keeping warm, and still being breathable. Several friends and family members have asked where I got it and were shocked at the price
Bought one of these just to try it out and was so impressed I ordered another very well built good quality material and excellent price would recommend anyone to buy this it will keep you very warm will order more as gifts when more become available in stock
Purchased several of these for myself and family members. Impressed by not only the quality of the fleece but the overall quality of the product itself. It has become a favorite for attending windy soccer games on the weekend and a go to jacket for winter and shoulder season camping. The fleece is thick, absolutely stops the wind, very well made and the high collar is a favorite feature when you are trying to stay warm. Mine has caught a few coals from sitting around a winter campfire and didn't burn through unlike domestic lighter weight products. The price can't be beat and this is one purchase you will enjoy for years to come. Highly recommend.
Today I received my French Army Polar Fleece Jacket.......Wow, what a Great Jacket. I was a little apprehensive being they only had it in XL. I am not familiar with European sizes but thought I'd take a chance. I am so glad I did. I am 5'10", 250lbs. Of course most of my weight is in my gut, I think if I weighed 100 lbs I'd still have a gut. The jacket fit perfectly. I like how it is snug at the waist. Love the high collar, a feature that's hard to find. Very Warm. I am hoping to buy another one this pay. Thanks!!
This jacket fits great and seems like it should last a long time, even with rough use. I wish I had bought an extra while they were in stock.
I am retired Army Infantry and this fleece is as good as any that I wore while in the military. Bought 5 total for friends and family.
I purchased this jacket from keep shooting and couldn't be happier. Other names for it are the French Foreign Legion Fleece.
The price is again (I get tired of saying this in reference to keep shooting's deals) but absolutely insane. You will not find a better jacket, or this jacket, cheaper anywhere else on the net, period.
The jacket also mates perfectly with the French Goretex Parka jacket that KS also offers. I believe they are intended to be worn in tandem together when the temps drop.
I have other USGI military fleece jackets, but none as thick as this one.. Or frankly as good looking. It has served me well on many outdoor adventures.
Originally when I purchased it my father liked it so much and was so shocked at the price I got it for, he had me order him one the very next day. In short, you can't lose with this purchase. I love the way it looks and fits, but most importantly around town on freezing nights, all I need to do is throw this on with a t-shirt under it.
The high riding collar works wonders at blocking out those cold gusts as well when your outdoors. Can't beat it. One of my all time favorite pieces of kit. Durable as can be.
