The US Military Cold Weather Fleece Jacket Gen III is a jacket that is designed to fight the cold yet be lightweight and comfortable. Soldiers who have worn this jacket can attest to this jacket being just that, lightweight, comfortable, and extremely effective at fighting the cold.
This military fleece jacket has a style that goes well with the high performance cold fighting characteristics. There are many commercial options for polar fleece jackets, yet few can match the performance of the military issue cold weather fleece jacket. The lack of a camouflage pattern or any unit designation on these jackets allows them to easily be worn in civilian settings without any issues.

Made of Polartec 100 material that makes this great for a mid-layer garment or a outer layer in milder temps. I removed the rectangular grip strips to make a less mil spec garment. I plan to use on early morning paddleboarding outings. I ordered a foliage medium for my 5'7" 34" waist that leaves room for a tee shirt. The fit is spot on.
I like the jacket while indoors in winter, and as a mid layer under a parka or shell in cold weather outdoors. Very comfortable. Even with the tall size, I am six two and would like another inch or more in the torso length. Sleeves are fine.
Good shape , just a little pilling. Easily passes as a civilian jacket. Fits perfect under my british desert camo smock when the weather is a bit nippy.
