What customers are saying

The Full-Zip Polar Fleece Jacket’s stellar 4.6-star rating reflects well on its winter-proof design.

“Very warm! Wore outdoors with only a T-shirt underneath for about six hours standing/walking around in about five to 10 degrees celsius cloudy weather and this jacket was perfection!” said one five-star reviewer. “I was never cold and the zip pockets perfectly protected my hands when needed. The fleece is divine and fuzzy.”

It seems that the Full-Zip Polar Fleece Jacket’s grade-A thermal fabric has made a number of Amazon shoppers repeat buyers as well.

“I have ordered two of these jackets. The first fit perfectly and the second one seemed stretched around the hip area. Kept both though because the material is nice and the colours are true to the photos,” raved another shopper. “Would not hesitate to order more.”
