    NZ made, this is a size large and weighs 1.2kg!!! Can be worn over shirt, has rank velcro patch on upper front chest. This is the only item that uses the molded YKK zipper that is common to most clothing these days. All other items use the continous chain type zip.

    I've got one of the USMC Polartecs, and I think that it is fairly heavy as well-- which ends up being a good thing. The only problem I have with it (and it looks like this item might be similarly afflicted) is that the underarm vents feel very uncomfortable if you're not wearing long sleeves. Of course, for uniformed personnel, this isn't an issue. Only those of us who don't have to deal with reg's are likely to be bothered by it.

    Either way, I think that military fleeces win over civilian garments of the same sort, not only for the functional aspects, but also for the price. 

    This is a really nice piece. Thank you for sharing.
