      Wow, I really didn’t do a very good job of proofreading this one!  Sorry about that.  I couldn’t come up with anything that I might have been thinking of at the time for that incomplete sentence, so I just deleted in.  So, I won’t bother re-post it for editing.  I’ll just delete the test file and upload, ok?  Do you want to create the folder or should I?  Thanks!

      Kathy,

      Well done for two reasons. First, great Review; second, you've pointed me to a Christmas present for a special friend, for whom I have the perfect slogan.

      Edits follow, in the usual BGT EDIT/Edit/Comment format. Why don't you re-post the dropped language (see ninth edit below) only so I can edit that before you upload.

      Cheers, Richard

      ###Manufacturer: Multisport Journeys, LLC###
      Edit: Consider noting their nickname, MSJ

      ###MSRP: US $40.00 + $2.50 surcharge for custom saying (optional):###
      EDIT: Delete the colon at the end of the line.

      ### "We literally burn the fuzz off of a fleece without burning through it to reveal sports designs.". ###
      EDIT: Delete one of the periods. If you're like me and always put the punctuation inside the quotation marks, drop the second one.

      ### The fleece is not lined, but all seams are overstitch to prevent fraying. ###
      EDIT: Unless "overstitch" is a term of art in sewing, use past tense – "overstitched."

      ###A drawstring cord with a plastic push-lock mechanism on the left side is integrated with the hem of the fleece so as to allow a closer fit to the bottom of the jacket ###
      EDIT: Need a period at the end of the sentence.
      Edit: You could delete "so as" without loss of meaning.

      ###Six-inch ( cm) side zippers open to reveal very large handwarmer pockets. These pockets are so generous, I can easily fix a one-liter water bottle in them if I so choose.###
      EDIT: Need the metric number – 15 cm
      EDIT: in one of them [or "in either of them" You need to make it clear that a one-liter bottle fits in one pocket.]

      ### I've worn or packed the Revelstoke on almost every backpacks ###
      EDIT: every backpack [singular]

      ### Temperatures have spanned four seasons now since receiving the Revelstoke, with lows as low as 20 F (7 C) ###
      EDIT: (-7 C)

      ###Because the Revel ###
      EDIT: Something was dropped here. Check your draft and re-insert.

      ### While the fleece is not waterproof, it does resist moisture and I did not get wet in a a couple of light drizzles. ###
      EDIT: Delete an "a."

      ###The Revelstoke is a good looking jacket with a semi-slim fit for women and it does not bunch up when wearing a backpack. ###
      Edit: good-looking [With a hyphen, as you have written above.]
      EDIT: when I'm wearing a backpack [I've never yet seen a sweater wearing a backpack.]

      ### If I was not wearing the jacket, I would generally lash it to the back of my pack ###
      EDIT: If I were not wearing [subjunctive verb]

      ### I've had this fleece for almost a year now and I love it! It still looks great even after many months of wear and at least 3 washings. ###
      Edit: I'd spell out "three."
