If you're looking forward to the brief interlude between summer and Canadian winter as much as we are, you're already planning your fall wardrobe for every picturesque autumn activity. Whether you're apple picking, hitting the pumpkin patch or simply taking in the sights of the changing leaves, a fleece jacket is a great transitional weather wardrobe piece. One popular (and affordable) option is the Full-Zip Polar Fleece by Amazon Essentials

What people are saying

Seasoned Amazon shoppers know how important it is to read customer reviews before you make a purchase. This Amazon Essentials favourite has earned a 4.6-star rating based on more than 18,000 customer reviews. 

“The fleece is divine and fuzzy,” one Amazon shopper wrote about their jacket which they called “perfection” for fall. Although the fit was “a touch big” the one shopper said they didn’t mind since they could likely layer the fleece over a sweater on colder days.

“Very warm and comfortable” another shopper wrote. 

“Nice and cozy and washes up nicely,” a separate customer added.

Although reviews for Amazon's popular polar fleece are mostly positive, there are some shoppers who have complained of the lack of stretch in the material, while others have complained that the material is "too lightweight" and would require multiple layers to keep you warm on colder days. 

Verdict

The Amazon Full-Zip Polar Fleece is a great layering piece for transitional temperatures — but if you're looking for a jacket that can last you through winter, you may want to pass on this basic.
