When it comes to fall fashion, nothing beats the comfort and versatility of a fleece jacket. Perfect for outdoor activities like walking the dog, hiking, or apple picking, they're my go-to for staying cozy throughout the colder months.
While I've tried many from a range of different brands, I keep coming back to my favourite FP Movement's fleece jacket.
💵 Price: $201 CAD/$148 USD
⏰ Used for: Two years
⭐ My rating: 5/5
🛍️ Reasons to buy: For anyone looking for a comfy layering piece for fall, this fleece is my top pick. It's roomy, oversized and has plenty of pockets to help you stay organized.
✋ Reasons to avoid: Honestly, the biggest drawback to this fleece is its price. You may also want to steer clear of it if you don't like the look of cropped sweaters.
Made from a plush fleece fabric, this cozy jacket has an oversized silhouette that gives off an effortless feel no matter what you pair it with. It has three zippered pockets to keep your essentials closet at hand and also features snap button closure.
As someone who loves a cozy fleece as a way to stay warm, I decided to buy the model-approved jacket for myself to see if it truly lives up to the hype.
FP Movement Hit The Slopes Jacket: Editor review
First off, this fleece jacket is extremely cozy and super soft, making it a perfect choice to bring along while I went on a camping and road trip through Prince Edward County. Light enough to keep in my backpack but warm enough to fend off the chilly morning weather, I found myself reaching for it pretty much every day of my trip.
It was also a functional choice to have with me while out and about, since the jacket has so many convenient pockets. The zippered front pockets were big enough to hold my cell phone, wallet, keys and sunglasses without worrying that they would fall out, while the smaller chest pocket is perfectly sized to store a face mask.
I ended up loving the fleece so much that I ended up purchasing it in another colour — this time in a more muted navy blue.
What others are saying
In addition to being a hit among celebrities, the Hit The Slopes Fleece Jacket is also a favourite among shoppers. So far, it’s earned a 4.4-star rating from more than 250 customer reviews and counting.
“This is the most comfortable thing I’ve ever owned! Big plus that it’s so easy to style and the colour is just so beautiful! Particularly in love with all those pockets,” raved one reviewer.
“I love this jacket, but was secretly hoping I wouldn’t so I could return it. Once I tried it, I couldn’t give it up. It’s light with lots of pockets and just the right length for higher waisted pants,” shared another.
Many shoppers have noted that this jacket does run slightly large, so if you prefer a more fitted look, you’ll want to size down before you buy.
“Obsessed with this jacket. I wasn't sure what size to get (S or M), I am 5'7 135 pounds and decided to go with the small. The medium looked great as well, but a little too oversized as the jacket's style is already oversized,” said one reviewer.
I’d agree with the reviews that you can definitely get away with a size down, as I purchased my jacket in an XS rather than my usual size small and was still able to layer it over a sweatshirt if needed.
Having brought this jacket along on vacations, to the gym and just wearing around the house, it definitely gets my seal of approval for a cozy and versatile pick this fall.
