Favorite item, favorite fabric
Ive been wearing the Micro D products for nearly 20 years and find them perfect as far as temperature comfort range. Not too hot for indoor wear, yet helps out nicely with outdoors cold. My only wishes are that Patagonia made this jacket in a full zip hoody jacket, and that they brought back fleece pants in this weight. (Once upon a time, they made...

Size and deliver both were problem
It's over sized and my package was delivered to someone else, the person was nice enough to walk to my house to deliver the package, but i needed it for a trip and i got it after i came back to practilly useless.
Hi Peeyush! Thank you for writing us a review. We're sorry to hear the jacket wasn't the right size. In addition, we're disappointed to hear it was delivered to the wrong address after you needed it. Please note, your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Really impressed with this jacket. Heard about the Patagonia difference, but now I understand. It is both lighter weight AND warmer than any other fleece jacket I have owned. It is incredibly comfortable, and I find myself reaching for it whenever I go out for anything. Combined with the great customer service I received when dealing with a deliver...

Product is a bit too
Product is a bit too flimsy as a jacket. Not real happy. Very nice look though!
Hey Joseph, thanks for the review. We're sorry to hear that you're not happy with this fleece! It was designed to be lightweight, but warm. If you'd like something with a thicker material, we recommend checking out the [Men's Synchilla Fleece Jacket](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-synchilla-fleece-jacket/22991.html?dwvar_22991_color=BLK) as an alternative.
Very good jacket but...
The pockets aren't great. They work well as handwarmer pockets but don't work for gear stuffing. I have ruined a phone when it fell out of my pocket and lost a wallet. Would suggest you make them deeper if possible or put a zipper on the opening.
Thank you for this feedback! Phones are getting bigger and this could be a problem with larger phones. We're passing your thoughts along to our product designers.
Nice fit and warm!
I found that this jacket runs large. I'm 6 foot 1 with an athletic build. I originally purchased a large and it was way too big in the stomach area. I switched to a medium and it fit perfectly! Extremely warm and trendy when layering it. Bought black and Navy in addition to the gray.
Deceptive fit charts
Nice item but the fit is a little long. I am 6 foot and its a little long for my taste. I tried a medium and the sleeves were too short and too tight in the chest. Im not a large guy but I guess Im one of those in between fit guys
Hey George, thanks for the review. We're sorry to hear that it was hard to find a good fit in this fleece jacket. We checked and it looks like the majority of our Men's fleeces are around this length. We did find one that runs about a half inch shorter, you can check it out [here](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-retro-pile-fleece-jacket/22801.html?dwvar_22801_color=DNAT&cgid=root).
Great fit, inside seams scratchy
Everything about this fleece seemed great, the color, fit, and material. However the moment I put it on with just a t-shirt I thought something like a tag had gotten into the sleeves. The stitching in the sleeves is done in a way that scratched my arms, distractingly so. It was frustrating enough that I returned the item with disappointment. Even i...

item runs way too small. Labeling must be wrong.
Hello Hans, thanks for the review. We're sorry to hear that you experienced some inconsistencies with sizing. This fleece has a regular fit, so your regular size should work; but it sounds like that wasn't the case. You're welcome to check in with customer service if you think that it was mislabeled, we can cross reference the garment measurements for you. If you'd like to exchange out for a size up, you can begin the process [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Its a shirt
Despite the main description, any northerner who is used to the cold will know what I mean when I say its a shirt! Because, thats all it is, a shirt. If you are looking for a fleece jacket, look elsewhere. I returned it because its a shirt!
Hi Justin, thank you for taking the time to submit this review. We're sorry to hear this fleece was not what you were expecting! The Micro D Jacket is designed to be a very lightweight and packable midlayer, which adds warmth when used as part of a layering system. In itself, it is not the warmest of our jackets, and you might be happier with a beefier fleece like the [Retro-X Jacket](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-classic-retro-x-fleece-jacket/23056.html?dwvar_23056_color=NAT). Thank you for returning something that wasn't going to make you happy. Our Customer Service Team will be happy to help you find something better suited to your needs!
Not as good as I hoped
I tried this Fleece jacket for a week and was disappointed, the quality felt cheap and it was not that warm. I was expecting more from the price I paid, I will be returning it.
We're very sorry to hear you were disappointed with this jacket! The Micro D Jacket is designed to be a super light midlayer, but it is not the warmest of our fleece jackets. Warmer options would include the Better Sweater Jacket, the Retro Pile Jacket, or any of the [R1 line](https://www.patagonia.com/search/?q=mens+r1+fleece&lang=en_US). In any case, we're glad you have returned this jacket, since it was not what you were hoping for. Please feel free to reach out to our Customer Service Team if we can be of any help in finding a better option!
One major flaw
It's a comfy fleece and good fit and good color. However, this has one major deal breaker flaw: For some reason around the neck collar is this very uncomfortable strip of material (similar to the uncomfortable clothing size tags) that goes all the way around the neck.

I've always had good luck with Patagonia gear. The two keys were: a lightweight fleece for our mostly mild west coast winters; and a zip front with pockets.

Just what I was looking for
I wanted a lightweight fleece jacket and my usual go-to retailers dont have anything. I took a chance on this one and I really like it.

Hey Paul, thank you for the review. We're so sorry to hear that the zipper pull on your Micro D broke so soon. If you ordered it from our website, we're always happy to send out a replacement when something like this happens. We weren't able to find an order under your email address so we've reached out to gather more info and set you up with a warranty return if you'd like to move forward with that.

Men's small is a good fit for me
Surprisingly the micro d fleece jacket was not available in women's so I ordered the small men's (which I've ordered before for fleece products). Fits me well as I have slim hips.

Hey Fernando, thank you for the review. We're very sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your new Micro D Fleece. This fleece is intended to be lightweight, but warm. The material is a 100% recycled polyester microfleece. We're wondering if perhaps you had a different fleece then you were originally thinking? If you reach out to customer service, we'd be happy to help identify the older fleece that you love so much, so you can ensure you're purchasing the right item.

If you're not seeing it, we recommend checking back because we add to inventory everyday.
Broke my heart when I lost my North Face version of this garment. They discontinued it so had been looking for a replacement to no avail. The closest thing at REI was cut too full for a layer.

Took a chance and ordered online. Turned out to be a virtual duplicate of my old favorite, but with the bonus of a zippered chest pocket.

May order the light gray Patagonia in small to see if it has the slightly snugger fit.
We're glad you found a new favorite and we appreciate your feedback! This Micro D Jacket is a "regular" fit and you may wish to try your normal size in one of our ["slim" fit fleece jackets](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/mens-fleece?prefn1=fit&prefv1=slim) like the R1 Daily Jacket.

Odd Fitting for Me
I was hoping that this item could be a spring-summer-fall evening jacket, so when I went to our local Patagonia store to try it on, I discovered that they didn't keep it in stock, even though it was late April. The only option I had was to order the item, unexamined, online. When it arrived, it was tight, particularly around my arms, which was... Read More odd. And it wasn't as though I could just order a larger size since the arms were also too long and, so, would be way long larger. Another thing, the feel was very clammy from the fleece, hardly the evening wear item for which I hoped, so I just gave up and returned it.
A little narrow in the shoulders and long in the sleeves.
Hey Robert, thank you for the feedback. We're sorry to hear that the fit on this didn't work out for you. If you'd like to start a return, you can do so [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html). If you see something else in the future that you're interested in, and you're unsure of how it will fit on you; reach out to our customer service team and we'd be happy to provide you with specific garment measurements.
Excellent fleece jacket. Soft, comfortable and reasonably warm. Excellent mid layer or can be worn as an outer layer in Spring or Fall. Its breathable and you can wear it whole day. Looks elegant. I was satisfied with the first jacket and ordered the second within a week. Great product. Good job Patagonia!
Practical and stylish

Read Morea little snugger/slimmer than Synchilla jacket, but not much. Hand pockets have no zippers (as of Fall 2021)this makes the garment a little lighter-weight and less bulky, but pockets are smaller and less secure. Similar lightweight mesh pocket lining. No cloth pull tab on zippers Synchilla jacket: Mid-weight fleece, slightly heavier than Micro-D. Closest to 200g weight from other brands. More like a sweatshirt made of fleece. Relaxed (but not baggy) fit. Zippered hand pockets that are quite large (interior of pocket runs from side seam to middle zipper, and is maybe 8-10 tall). Both jackets: Similar chest pocket. Hem and cuffs are not gathered/cinched. Fleece is soft to the touch, dries quickly in open air, and holds up well to washing. Not fancy but super practical, comfortable, and warm per weight. Lack of fancy features like hem cinch keep it relatively affordable and reduce moving parts to create an accessible, eco-friendly, and long-lasting garment.
Im a health care provider so this jacket fits me perfect over my scrubs. This is my first Patagonia product ever. Looks and fits are perfect. Unfortunately, my son whos a college professor and likes the jacket so much has borrowed this jacket for good. Im ordering new ones for me but they are out of stock. GREAT product

Versatile fleece jacket
A great fleece jacket which I have in several colors. Either as an outer layer on cool days or as a layered piece under another jacket on colder days, this jacket is versatile, soft, warm and looks great. My only suggested improvement is adding zippers to the side hand warmer pockets. You can loose items
Near daily use so far
While just received this, the timing is ideal for this jacket. The temps have ranged from upper 20s to low 50s, sometimes in the same day!

Both Micro D garments are comfortable, lightweight and 4-season wear even here in Maine -- as layering garments in cold weather or over a tee in warm weather.

The Micro-D jacket is the best. Lighter in weight fleece, very comfortable sizing, great for layering. I have been buying this jacket for many years and one of the reasons is that the hand pockets do not have zippers. One of the few jackets you can find like that. I wish it was offered in forge grey. Love this Patagonia fleece.
One of my favorite and most versatile pieces
I will skip most of the many reasons I find this to be one of my most favorite cool weather jackets. They have been mentioned many times by others. But regarding the weight of the material, this is not a 100 wt polyester as some might think. Doing the math you will find that 4.7 oz/yd2 is ca. 160 gm/m2
This recycled fleece jacket is very soft & comfortable, fit is perfect & the quality is outstanding, the only improvements I suggest is make the two hand pockets zippered, add an interior drop-in pocket with Velcro closure, and add a zipper garage at the neck. I would be willing to pay more for these additional features
Great Lightweight Fleece Jacket
So far I'm very impressed by the quality and comfort of this jacket. It fits better than expected and I'd wear it every day if my wife let me :-) I can wear it as a standalone jacket if it's a bit chilly out or as a base layer when it gets really cold. Exactly what I was looking for.
My husband is very happy with this jacket. I had purchased the womens jacket some years ago and have always loved mine, especially the fit, which is not too long or wide, and the zippered pockets. A lightweight fleece is definitely a great wardrobe staple for many folks. I saw that youre offering the micro d in a quarter zip, which while nice, just... Read More isnt as versatile as a full zippered jacket. Also, I purchased one of the jackets for my daughter and was disappointed to see no zippered pockets. She kept it because she liked the thin material. I also bought this item for a daughter-in-law who wanted a thin jacket that she could wear inside or outside and still be presentable for zoom calls. I hope you keep this classic in your line. It would be great if you offered either petite or short options.
Great lightweight fleece!
Most fleece jackets are designed for cold outdoor weather which means that you bake when you're indoors or driving somewhere. The micro-D is thin enough to be worn everywhere (the same weight as the old Polartec 100 rating). A rare find! [Note that the sizes seem slightly large to me, about a half-size up.]
Baggy and clingy, this did not work for me. Patagonia was their typical awesome in accepting the return.

Underrated & Under-Appreciated
Easily my favorite Patagonia top. I have two (black and gray). Once you consider quality, price and the number of times you can wear it over the course of the year, for me, it's easily the most underrated and under-appreciated piece of Patagonia clothing I own.

I don’t know what magic was woven into this jacket but it has an uncanny ability to provide me exactly the amount of warmth needed for the temperature situation at hand.

Perfect without doing any one thing perfectly
Very versatile. Incredibly comfortable and fits so well. (L) for me at 5'11" and 183# is just right … neither snug nor overly loose. MOST of all, it feels so good I do not want to take it off. It is tempting to lower the thermostat on my a/c so I can wear it in the house.
Simple, stylish, and effective
I bought this as a base layer for the Inca Trail. It was perfect for that, and now I find myself wearing it just about everyday, whether around the house, running errands, or going out casually with friends. Definitely appreciate the full zip (as opposed to pullover); it’s very convenient.

I have been wearing this jacket as a middle or outer layer all winter for alpine skiing,ski touring and hut trips. It's the perfect layer for almost any winter activity.
