Â by admiralbrown01 Great Technical Fleece, Poor Execution
I have to return mine, but more about this later. This is a nice fleece pullover, not really a jacket. This will be a great technical addition to my running wardrobe. This will work nicely on colder runs when a single Polartech shirt just isn't enough. I plan on using this on cooler hikes in the woods as well. The fleece material is ribbed on the inside.
I agree with other reviewers that the logo should be embroidered and not screen printed. I am also worried about the strength of the seam around the thumb hole. I could see the thumb hole ripping from use or the fleece tearing at the thumb-hole, it should have been reinforced better.
Now my complaint, the thumb hole is on the wrong place on my fleece. In order to use the thumb hole I have to twist the sleeve to line the thumb hole up with my thumb. It took me a few minutes to realize that the diamond pattern of the fleece is on the outside of my pullover and that panel was sewn inside out and upside down. In order to line up my thumb with the hole the seam from behind my shoulder has to cross over the top of my forearm. Hopefully this is a rare defect and not a manufacturing issue like the 2011 Boston Celebration Jackets that were all screen printed and not embroidered. To save possible problems, buy this fleece at the Runners Expo and not online. Now to learn how to return to Adidas.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great gift for Boston Marathon Qualifier
The form, fit and, function of this jacket is great. It's really more of a fleece pullover than a jacket, which works well. The standup collar is soft, providing neck protection from the wind. The long sleeves, with a thumb hole, cover my hand nicely without stretching the sleeve. The colors are vibrant and the logo is neat, providing some motivation for training through the New England winter.

The fleece quality is great. Unfortunately the quality of the logo looks like I could peel it off with my fingernail. I wanted to love this shirt but I wish they would have charge a couple more bucks and stitched on a logo rather than the iron on sticker.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Eric-the-Runner Great for Going to Training
Took a gamble on this one as I couldn't really tell from the web site what it would be like, especially as I had to have it shipped to the UK (via Sam in Utah - thanks Sam#. It's a great runners top and wears well with sports gear - hence my comment about wearing it to training. Great colours, lightweight material and a loose casual fit #rather than tight/fashionable#. Great quality and nice to wear. I'm 6'1" and 180 lbs and vary between L and XL #UK) and I'm pleased I ordered L as it fits great.

This fleece is amazing! I absolutely LOVE how it is light weight, yet still does the job of keeping you warm! You will feel a breeze at first if there is a stiff wind, but as you build up your run, it will all fade away! Also, if it is quite windy and cold, it makes an outstanding jacket to layer with!!! I simply love this fleece and plan on buying a second one VERY soon!

This item fits great, is definitely made well and keeps you fairly warm. My only "gripe" with this item is the logo, i would be afraid after time it will wear off as its not embriodered, its almost an iron on so the logo quality could definitely be better in the future. But oterwise very happy with it.

I wear these all the time and this one is the best. It's thin, yet warm. Fits true to size. Love the thumb holes - I sed them for running AND riding in the cold. I wish the boston marathon logo was embroidered instead of pressed on.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Bill L Nice Pullover
Good fit and nice medium weight. Boston Marathon logo is not embroidered and am concerned it may wear off quickly. Overall very nice though.

I just wish it had the "26.2" on the neck collar like all the jackets have.
