The USMC Flame Resistant Grid Fleece is part of the Marine Corps flame resistant organizational gear (FROG) system. Designed to give Marines a high performance clothing system that fights the cold and remains fire resistant the FROG system has proven to out perform other similar uniform systems. This pullover is designed to be worn over the silkweight layer and provides an incredible performance in cool and cold weather environments.
With Marines operating in some of the harshest climates you can guarantee their uniform systems will be up to the demand. There are many fleece pullovers yet few can compare to this authentic Marine Corps fleece pullover which was made expressly for the Corps. You will appreciate how warm and comfortable this grid fleece pullover is the first time you put yours on.

When ordering surplus clothing, I never expect perfect, like new condition. But I also don't expect totally wore out, ripped items either.
I was super excited to recive this item because, A) I'm a former Marine & love buying USMC surplus &,
B) how incredible the price was for an item that is usually $40+ anywhere else.
The size was on point (large long) w/the exception of how stretched out it was after obviously being worn & washed 1000×. Again, something to be expected when buying surplus, but IMO this was a lil over used.
The biggest bummer was the 4 cigarette sized holes on the sleeves (2 on each arm). They almost look like they were made w/scissors (possibly made by a previous buyer who accidentally cut the sleeves when opening the package before returning the item??)
With that said. I am going to make the best out of it & this def doesnt change my oponion on KS's quality products & excellent selection, so pls don't let this review give u a negative view of KS. I have bought many items from them in the past & they have always delivered. Semper Fidelis.
Bought one of these same exact pullovers from another retailer, and payed nearly twice as much, for a clearly used (inferior) product. But these are in great condition, like new, and I love the deep and convenient kangaroo style pockets, waffle fleece and zip up neck.
Very nice. Look new or almost new to me. I ordered 2 and got them today. Started using one immediately as there is a below zero cold snap going on. Works good.
