Look here for some really great deals- more than 50% off on mostly higher end fleece jackets like Moonstone, Lowe Alpine, Mammut, as well as slightly lower tier but still excellent brands like Sportif:http://www.sierratradingpost.com/prod_list_display.ASP?search_type=L2%7E195&dept_id =L2~195&size1=&size2=&gender=0&ShowImages=yes&sq=0 &cont=1&header_title=&special_type=&sqlSearchStr=& sortby=
You probably won't be able to get windstopper or windpro fleece for less than $60, however- the cheapest that I saw was for $72, which is still really cheap. If you plan to wear it under a shell, there is a small downside to those fabrics anyway- somewhat reduced breathability (not an issue if you aren't wearing a shell).
If you tend to be cold or are in really cold weather look for 300 wt. fleece, otherwise 200 may be sufficient (f you are from the Chicago area, I guess you want the heavier weight stuff!) Polartec is the original brand fabric (made by Malden Mills, originally for Patagonia, but now used by most of the high end manufacturers). In heavy (300wt) weight fleece, pit zips are nice for ventilation when it gets too warm. I saw some great deals at the closeout sale at EMS the other day, too (their house brand is excellent), and there were a few North Face Denali jackets left in odd sizes in last year's colors at REI for about $65, but those may be all gone if the closeout sale is over.
