These are very comfortable and very nice looking on. Bought one and then bought several more in different colors. I wear in XS and the fit is just right. Great for golf and stylish to wear anytime.
I would recommend this product.

I'm not sure if I understand why this top received so many positive reviews. There is a seam that cuts right across the bust, and when the zipper is zipped it is looks warped and sticks out at the bottom - not flattering. Maybe this is just because I have a very long torso, but the top fits perfectly elsewhere. A shame, because the material, color, and quality are otherwise great. Unfortunately this one is going back.
I do not recommend this product.

I tried on a large and an extra large. The large fit great and the extra large kind of hung off me so I decided on the large. I wore it once and loved it. Then I washed it (in cold water and low dry). Now it barely fits and is WAY too short. I wear a tank underneath it, but it's so short now that even that doesn't look right. I'm super disappointed that it shrunk THAT much. I wish I had kept the receipt because I would have taken it right back. :-/ I really like the shirt though, so I still recommend it, but buy a much larger size!!
I would recommend this product.

This product was bought to embroider with my work logo and wear year-round. It fit perfectly upon arrival, but after one wash it shrank significantly. I'm constantly pulling at it to lengthen it and I have a short torso! The seam that is supposed to go under the bust line is also too high. I live in Columbia wear and this is the first negative thing I've had to say about one of their products. This one just isn't the same quality as other Columbia products I have experienced.
I do not recommend this product.

I love this jacket. There is a line that crosses the chest so if you are larger I know it would bother someone. However, I sized up (usually wear a medium) and I didn't notice the line until someone who had the same jacket pointed it out.
It is true to size but I like these jackets a bit baggy.
I would recommend this product.

I am so happy running in this top. The colors are vibrant and the styling is great. I am shocked that this top fits me so well. I am 5'1" 135#--not much fits me without alterations, but the bust seam of this shirt fits me just under the breasts (where it should!) and the length it just about right--2" under the belly button. (I think it may have shrunk a bit in the first few washings--more to the good for me). Nice mid-weight for North-West winter runs! Thank you!
I would recommend this product.

The sweater is very soft and comfortable! The fit runs a bit small, especially in the chest area if you have a larger bust. There is a seam running under the zipper across the bust area that sits a bit high on me, but other than that, I love it!
I would recommend this product.

This half-zip is average, but even more comfortable than expected. It would be even better if it were a little longer to be worn with leggins and to be warmer.

This turtleneck zip is made of the comfiest material, is roomy, but not overly big, and perfect for layering. Have already worn it snowboarding, and loved it.

The seams separated on this item after two wearings and the warranty process was terrible. I do not recommend this item, nor the company that made it.

I've had similar shirts from other manufacturers, but this one has the best fit and the softest fabric, and the green color is lovely. Columbia needs to make this in about a dozen different colors, so I can buy them all.

This shirt is awesome! I did find it a little small for the large size but not enough to where I needed to send it back. This shirt gives more warmth than I thought but it is very light and thin which is nice.

I like this 1/4 zip t-neck. The only thing I'm not fond of is that there is no cover for the top of the zipper when it is zipped all the way up, so it is a little uncomfortable when worn that way. If you have an undergarment you wish to show off by zipping the zipper down, this is not a problem.
I would recommend this product.

I love this half zip thermal. The arm length is perfect, doesn't ride up and looks great on and under as a layer. LOVE IT. Many thanks to the designer. Hope you have more of this kind of fit.

I bought two of these shirts and consider them a great layer for light weight warmth. I usually wear them on top of a tee. They are great layer for wearing around the house, hiking, tennis, being outside. They also pack up well for travel, they take up very little room so good for your carry on bag. A good go to layer.
I would recommend this product.

I bought the purple (quill) one and the color and design are very nice. It's comfortable and fits great. The only thing that I don't like about it is that it has darts, which are fine if you wear it alone. If you put a sweater over it, you see two lines on your bust where the darts are.
I would recommend this product.
