I have two of last year's Cloud Layer 1/4 zip fleeces that I like, so I went to EB over lunch to buy another one or two. Seems the changes are more than cosmetic- cut has changed a fair bit, having gone in a more casual direction.
1. Arms are baggier, less fitted; don't seem to move with me as well.
2. Significantly shorter torso for the same size; the tall size wasn't as long as my non-tall from last year.
3, The fleece used seems lighter weight, less tense, looser weave; looks more prone to pilling, though obviously looks may be deceiving. :P
4. Seam style has changed, don't recall seam type names. Flat on the inside, but the
thread is all visible from the outside.
5. Pocket is a lot smaller- seems more of decoration than anything else.
I left without buying another. A bummer, as I like the two I have, but certainly not the end of the world. OK, I'm done picking nits! :)
