OverviewWe flew out to Fall River, MA to meet with Merrow in Spring of 2018 and visiting their factory was a glimpse into the past. Seeing an old American style factory in such an iconic building made us proud in playing a role in bringing jobs and sewing back to the states. Established in 1838 Merrow is a diverse manufacturing operation. Managed by 7th Generation Brothers, Owen & Charlie Merrow.

The quality of this fleece is unsurpassed; it is well constructed and has nice features like thumb things, a kangaroo pocket, and a slider to adjust the hood. In my opinion the sizing is a bit off; I ordered an XL (my usual shirt size because I like a loose fit so that I can wear layers) and this shirt was too snug, even with only a polyester t-shirt underneath. I plan to order an XXL when they're back in stock. I'm 6' 2", 180 lbs. and XL isn't usually a problem as a top layer. Overall, I'm impressed with the quality.
Never want to take it off! Perfect fit, super cozy and comfortable. Can't wait to get another one in a different color.
Nice fleece. Warm, comfortable, looks nice. Too warm for higher output activities, but great for skiing hikes and casual activities in the cold
Fantastic. Haven't taken it off yet. Surprisingly warm, very cozy, fit is great (I got a small which is my usual fleece jacket size). Worth every penny. Exceptional mid layer. Technical enough for outdoorsy things and pretty enough to wear to the brewery. A++++
I bought my first Livingston a year and a half ago. I liked it so much I bought another in a different color about a year later.
Not long afterward, I noticed a defect with my first Livingston. Despite being purchased when Fayettechill still offered the lifetime "Ozark Family Guarantee," I was told that not registering the hoodie means Fayettechill would not honor that guarantee.
Last week I noticed a small hole near the left wrist area of my second Livingston. Since the guarantee is gone, I realize I am left to my own devices to repair it.
While I initially liked the Livingston quite a bit, the lack of durability and Fayettechill not standing behind their products are the reasons why I will not be purchasing any additional items from them. Though the initial purchase price might be more, there are other companies using Polartec who stand behind their products.
