Whats up with the sleeve length?
Nice product but the sleeves are definately 3 inches too short! This company is aware of the problem and should warn all buyers and not advirtise it as meeting standard American size guidlines. A real disappointment and a major turnoff regarding trust in the company for an otherwise nice fleece.

I bought this Liner to wear it with the Gen II ECWCS Parka. I wear a Normal Regular and so I ordered a N size.
Sleeves are a little short and the general cut too. When worn alone, it's warm enough for moderate cold weather and the shorter cut doesn't represent a big issue. The problem comes when worn with the parka. My Normal size Liner is shorter than the Normal size ECWCS Parka. This make the combination of the two a little tight to wear.
The price is good, but for the same price you may find better liner, lighter and warmer (e.g., Propper APCU Level III Pullover).

Sleeves are great, zipper matches perfectly with my ECWS Generation II parka.
I'm gonna buy another one.

Good for the price...
As with other reviews the sleeves on the jacket are just too short. I currently have the medium which fits me well around the chest but if I hold my arms out the sleeves stop about 2 1/2 inch. before my wrist. The jacket is of low quality and no where has the TRU-SPEC logo just a made in China lag. It is cheap fleece and the zipper is really crappy and annoying but the whole thing was worth the $20 I paid for it although it was not worth the $13 in shipping because it weighs less then 2 pounds. But then again its not all bad, its a cheap fleece jacket, you get what you pay for. I ordered on November 25th, 2011 and I work with the military with the intent to wear this on duty.

Yes, sleeves really are too short.
Just got my Fleece Jacket Liner today, and yes, the sleeves are about 3 inches short. I ordered a large and probably should have ordered an xtra large but wanted to avoid too much liner under my ACU coat. I'll keep it, as I'm only wearing it in the morning chill and its not worth the trouble to send back...but other than that one issue, for $20 its actually a nice liner and well worth the price. If you are just getting this to wear under an ACU coat, I'd go one size higher as is recommended in several of the reviews.

Fleece Jacket Liner
Nice for the price, the only issue I have is the sleeves are too short and have a tendency to bunch up.

I received this item well within 10 days to my APO and for $20 this liner is exactly what I was looking to wear with or without the APECS Parka. The velcro for name tape, branch, and rank were on point and the chest size fits well, however the sleeves are 2 to 3 inches too short. Really like the jacket, but it is unfortunate that the sleeves are too short. Will be returning.

Sleeves are too short
Normally, I am Small/Regular. I ordered a Small size, fit is good in the chest, but sleeves are 3-4 inches too short.

I ordered a Large, which is typically what I wear. The sleeves were a good 3 to 4 inches shorter than a normal Large and the elastic is pretty tight. Not very comfortable or equitable to the standard GI Issue. I will be seeking a refund.

Ordered an XL in coyote. Sleeves were way too short for an XL garment. Returned for refund.
