I got my very first fleece back in 2008. Late into the "everyone's wearing them" game, I know, I had always been the college sweatshirt type. When a store had a North Face sale, I snagged their standard black fleece. A bit thin, without any bells and whistles, the fleece has held up well enough over the past 6 years.

Love this style of fleece!

Not only does the Bench fleece have a built in neck wrap, the sleeves are also extended. The ends of the sleeves can be stretched to cover the tops of my hands on cold days. A thumb hole keeps the sleeve in place and of course, my hands warmer.
