This fleece is extremely soft. It is very attractive as far as the appearance of the fleece, the fabric itself, and the color ("Winter"). It is thin compared to my other Columbia fleece (PolarTech), but it seems to keep me just as warm (with long-sleeve tee underneath; haven't tried with short-sleeve). And it is certainly more enjoyable to wear than the PolorTech because of its softness and the flexibility of the fabric--extremely cozy. It's so comfortable, I plan to use it for indoor lounging as well as for outdoor fall hikes. It will work well for layering with winter jackets because of its thinness.
The reason I didn't give a full 5 stars is my dissatisfaction with the structure of the collar and hood--specifically, the way they are connected with each other. I don't know if it's the cut of the fabric or what, but the way the hood and collar are made leave the collar somewhat oddly situated when not wearing the hood. It is somewhat difficult to get the collar to lay down smoothly, and to look neat and clean-cut, with the hood laying down in the back. The very best arrangement is with the zipper down 3 or 4", which is fine unless it's too chilly. If you need the fleece more fully zipped, it's just going to leave you with a half-standing, oddly shaped collar as the hood is pulled closer. If you zip it all the way up, then that is no problem--the collar stands up fully and the hood is drawn close to the back of the neck (adding warmth, which is good). I probably would not have purchased this fleece because of this issue if I had been able to try it on in a store first. However, since I had ordered online & wanted to avoid further shipping and a return--& also because I could not find any other desirable or affordable options for fleeces--I forced myself to try this one first around the house with tags still on. In doing so, I found that the positive features of the fleece far outweigh this one negative aspect. One other small thing is, it could be slightly more fitted (in waist & hip) for a cleaner look. But it's not bad overall; the cut is feminine and it looks nice on. I enjoy wearing it and it does look like a quality garment. It seems well-made and I'm assuming it will hold up as well as my other Columbia fleece has.
I would recommend this product.

Very nice light weight fleece. It is incredibly soft. The cut is feminine without being too fitted. I bought it to wear indoors in place of a sweater or sweatshirt so I am very happy with the weight. I bought it in Mirage and Inkling and both colors are lovely and versatile. This is a winner!
I would recommend this product.

I got the 'Inkling' hoodie and sometimes I think it is blue and others it is purple. It is clearly somewhere in between but a really nice color. It is a little thinner/more lightweight than I had expected (so wind and the like come through pretty easy) but it is VERY soft! One other comment is that in the picture it almost looks like it has a collar and a hood but that is not the case if anyone is wondering.
Regardless, I am very happy with the hoodie and wear it often! The fit is good and it looks nice. It is warm and comfortable so I am happy.
I would recommend this product.
