Free Country Trail Fleece Jacket Review

We have had some of the WEIRDEST weather this year. It stayed warm LONG into winter, then winter got REALLY cold, but no snow, then Spring actually CAME and lasted pretty much up to this week. Which is about twice as long as normal! So for the past 3 weeks, we have alternated between low 40s at night and 70s in the day, to 80 degrees and 80 degree humidity. Not making for great allergy weather, but meaning we have to keep the jackets out!

So I was thrilled to be able to receive a fleece jacket from Free Country, just as the weird Spring weather was upon us! Free Country is a national clothing company that's available in places like Kohl’s, JC Penney, and Sears. They carry products for men, women and children, from light weight to snow country heavy jackets, to swimwear in the Summer!

Due to it being toward the end of their coat/jacket season, they had limited availability in my size, so I opted to select a men's jacket, as it would be roomier, longer and great for use to/from and at work!

The Trail Fleece jacket can take you from everyday life, straight into the great outdoors. Brushed microtech fleece and rip stop fabrics have been joined together to give you a jacket that is both stylish and functional; while the rip stop fabric adds an extra layer of durability. Multiple outer zipper pockets and one inside pocket for ample storage. Additionally it has adjustable tab closures at both cuffs, and an adjustable drawcord at the hem. AND it is machine washable- you have to love that right?

As you can see, it is plenty long and roomy on me (which is the way I prefer my jackets for work). It can easily go on over a light sweater, or be used over a t-shirt. I do have to close the cuff tabs pretty much all the way, but the velcro closures are simple to use. I love that the zippers have heavy duty pulls, as I've already put tons of things in the pockets and haven't had anything come out! And the roominess of the pockets is a plus too! I can even put my phone in the front chest pocket and use it as a mp3 player while walking. YEAH!  

The fleece is a nice middle weight, and definitely stops the wind from chilling you! In fact, it is made with their patented FCX Technology which means it has the FCX coating on the fleece to make it water and wind resistant! Yet it is still soft and comfortable to wear. Which means it is perfect for you moms and dads who have to be out in ugly weather for the kids baseball and soccer games this Spring! AND with the rip stop material, I haven't had to worry about snagging the arms on anything either! I love this jacket and it's the only one I'm wearing right now!

The Free Country women's jackets are styled similarily, but they are more fitted at the waist, and wider at the hips.They have some super fashionable heavy weight jackets for skiing and heavy snow weather!  Unfortunately for the curvier gals, many of the fashionable jackets and coats are not available above size XL. But check out the mens jackets, as you might find something similar that can fit you!.

Free Country is having a huge sale on the remaining jackets and coats, so you might be able to snag a great coat for next winter at a really great price! AND they have some really cute swimwear, and it's on sale right now too! Yup, Free Country has you covered ALL year round! Check them out and I know you'll agree!

Thanks Free Country for providing me with the perfect transition jacket from Winter to
 Spring and through Spring! I know I will get a lot of use out if it in the Fall, when our 
weather is cool enough again!
