Looks good- but I’m looking for stuff I can wear indoors as well.
Our house is pretty roomy. It’s primarily heated by propane, so it never gets that warm in the winter, especially the 2nd floor. We are using the fireplace insert for the first time this year as well. So nothing like a cozy fleece when it’s below freezing outside and barely 65 inside.
Solid suggestions so far.

Uniqlo usually does an annual collaboration with White Mountaineering. I picked up a big pile fleece bomber last year that bridges the gap between fleece quarter zip and winter coat.
They usually sell out quick and go for a premium on reseller sights.
There should be a release soon.

Dang this thread is costing me ! Out yesterday and picked up a fleece vest and two long sleeve quarter zip fleece pullovers from Columbia and Eddie Bauer - luckily all on solid sale!

I get it…. But try one of these. It’ll change your mind:

that wasn't to mean they are bad. they are common place/affordable and a all around good product for everyday use. i also like gerry, eddier bauer and ll bean. if i want to go to the next level i would look at patagonia, marmot, mountain hardware, Arc’teryx, OR, and kuhl. i believe my next one is going to be something from cotopaxi.
I actually have a fleece marmot vest that I wear at work and damn is that thing comfy.
marmot make some killer shit. prices are kind of tough though.

It's going to be -40* (C or F, all that same at that temp) here in Calgary soon so I'm a big fan of fleece. I have 2 of those North Face Campshire pull over's. One in navy blue and the other in the baby poo brown that you posted. I find them great as there is a bit of wind protection as well , vs my other fleece jackets that don't offer any protection from wind. The only downside is they are a bit warm inside the house.

I've also got a Mountain Hardwear Monkey Man which is nice, but the wind cuts through it so it's used as a base layer with a windproof shell.

I just got one of these recently which is perfect for my California needs. Reversible means much more versatility for weather, as w/ the kids in soccer all the time, I'll often start off with it one way and reverse it as it gets colder into the night. Pics make it look thicker/heavier, which kept me away for a bit, but in person, it's pretty light and thin (which I prefer).

I live these Ironheart sweats. They are warm and wind proof.

FWIW - Patty has a good preowned store that I wasn't aware of. Looks like a decent way to save some dollars (for more Toxic Natos?)

I've used this a few times. Actually pretty good as they clearly describe the condition of each piece.

Man, Patagucci is the budget brand these days, check out arc'teryx, fjallraven, Montcler, and plenty of others. Just like another hobby we all have in common here :cheers:
