What people are saying
Seasoned Amazon shoppers know how important it is to read customer reviews before you make a purchase. Luckily, the Full-Zip Polar Fleece has earned an impressive 4.6 out of 5 star rating from more than 11,000 customer reviews.
“I had never purchased Amazon brand clothing before, but I was glad to have come across this item. Just like any other polar fleece it's soft and warm. It doesn't have any big flashy logos on the front so it may be perfect for uniform purposes,” wrote one reviewer. “The pockets on the side have ample room and semi-concealed zippers. Washes well and hasn't started pilling or creating fuzz yet.”
Some shoppers have noted that the zippers fit a little large, and recommend following the size guide for a comfortable fit.
“I bought this fleece for the upcoming colder weather and it did not disappoint,” a reviewer said. “I’m usually an XS/S for shirts or sweaters and the small fits comfortably and slightly relaxed with room to layer underneath. The fleece is so soft and warm! I haven’t washed yet but upon trying this on I ordered another one in a different colour!”
The Amazon Full-Zip Polar Fleece is the perfect layering piece for colder temperatures and an easy sweater to grab when you’re on the go or want to bundle up.
It’s not thick enough to wear as a winter jacket alternative, but could be ideal to wear alone during cooler temperatures in spring and fall. At $28, the Amazon Essentials fleece is an affordable option for anyone looking to save on active or loungewear and avoid paying more for name brand apparel.
