Similar Alternative to TAD Ranger Hoodie LT?

With winter coming, I am looking for a good fleece type jacket.  I really like the TAD Ranger Hoodie Lt's, but A) they never have my size (probably 2XL / maybe XL)  B) When they do come back in-stock, they sell out in 3 minutes. 

So, what are options for fleeces similar to the TAD Ranger Hoodie LT?  I like the pockets, but don't really need the Velcro patches. 

I already have a Arc'Teryx Atom LT and Naga Full Zip, but sometime I just really miss a good Fleece.

Just my two cents, but if you didn't already have the Atom and the Naga, I'd recommend those over a TAD Ranger any day.  In my experience of having owned all three, there's nothing the Ranger does that the other two pieces can't do better.  I still own Atoms and Nagas, but sold my Ranger awhile back.

Try looking at Prometheus Design Werx (created by former TAD guy/s).

If you can live without the shoulder pockets and like the sleek/smooth polartec material (Power Stretch Pro) I'd recommend the following. I have two and they're awesome. Lightweight for the warmth they provide, stretchy so can layer underneath, giantass hood and better designed thumb cuffs. Plus they're made in the US and from every day wear during last fall they've held up pretty good.

Check out the Arc'Teryx Covert Cardigan or Covert Hoody. They're pretty good. They're a looser weave fleece than the Naga series, but they're a little thicker. And they don't look tactical at all. Unless you're looking for something for LEAF use.

Thanks, I like that Covert Cardigan. 

Anyone try the Patagonia Better Sweater?
