This is the thinnest kind of fleece, but that's what I wanted. I haven't had it long enough to judge its durability.
I would recommend this product.

BAD fit
onSeptember 29, 2013
I won't be buying again! The collar/neck is way to wide and tall to be worn zipped and when slightly unzipped it is a giant collar. I also don't get the weird little darts that are just wrong on a fleece and serve no purpose. Also do not like the banding on the sleeves, prefer a straight cut sleeve that can be neatly rolled if desired. I miss the older style.

I love this jacket! I have 4 of Columbia Benton Springs full zip fleeces and I love them. Compared to those jackets this fits smaller and closer to the body which is good but the material is considerably thinner than the full zip fleeces. The only thing I would change about this is making the material just a little bit thicker
I would recommend this product.

This is my new favorite for every day fall wear. So soft, warm but not too warm. The salmon color is perfect. Love the darts that make it more flattering to a woman.

These are my favorite fleece tops. If I could, I would buy one in every color. They're lightweight, which is really important to me, because in the winter I need something I can layer when it's real cold, but isn't so heavy that when I'm inside I'm too hot. These tops are the best. They just get softer and more comfy with time. I will say, however, that I don't find they run large at all, I find they run a bit small. I wear a size 10-12, and usually get a size large in tops if I want a comfortable, roomy fit. I ordered a size XL in this top, and it fits me just the way I want. It isn't too tight and I don't swim in it either. So if you carry some stuff around your middle as I do, you might want to size up. All in all, I couldn't recommend this enough! I love it!
I would recommend this product.

I got this half zip in a small, and even the small is a little big. I was expecting it to be more form flattering, but it will do for running errands and lounging around the house. If you're petite go with the XS. Also, the material is very thin. I know it's light weight but it's really thin. When I wear dark shirts under it, you can see them. I got the color Afterglow, however I was disappointed because it is not the beautiful raspberry pink shown in the picture, it is actually a very bright highlighter pink. I wish the colors shown were more accurate. This product is very soft and comfortable, though.
I would recommend this product.

I just got this fleece and I love it! It is the most flattering 1/2 zip fleece sweater that I own. I've tried them all. It hits a little longer on your hip rather than just below the waistline like a lot of fleece sweaters I have, which I feel is more flattering. The fleece is a little thinner than I wanted which is why I gave it 4 stars rather than 5. But I did layer a long sleeve t-shirt underneath and it was just fine. For reference, I am 5'6" and 130lbs and the small fit great. I got the black fleece to wear with colored skinny jeans and boots, very cute!
I would recommend this product.

I had 3 of these fleeces that have degraded into "work" shirts, so I decided it was time for a new one. I LOVE that it's a little longer than the older (5 years ago?) style.
5'6" @ 145 pounds and the medium is great
I would recommend this product.

I was looking for something a little thicker..but I wear it at the gym before I work out. It might be better garment to have layers under it to stay warm. Otherwise the quality is great and it isnt tight fitting. I wear a large and have slightly large hips and butt and it doesnt fit snug like other products I've bought (not from Columbia though). Hope this helps!
I would recommend this product.

I love this pullover! I am 5'4" 115lbs. and the XS fits great. It definitely is thinner than I expected it to be, but it is super soft and warm. The Vino color is true to the picture online. I would definitely recommend it for layering over a long sleeve or under a heavier coat. I now want more in different colors!

A great bottom layer in very cold weather but stylish enough to wear out to dinner. Fabric isn't bulky but is very cozy. I'm 5'5" and 110lbs and small fits perfectly as a bottom layer without being baggy or tight. If I used it as a jacket I would need a larger size. I love that it is long enough to fall inches below my low rise jeans. After wearing my first one I bought 3 more! The melon and afterglow colors shown online don't really reflect the true colors of those items but I love the shirts anyway.
I would recommend this product.

My favorite time to wear this light weight fleece is in the evening around the house. It is the perfect weight for taking the chill off when living near the foggy coast. The Light Grape color is really a lovely dark periwinkle, which I am delighted with. The length is long on me, below the hip, and I'm rolling up the sleeves, but I'm cozy and comfy in my periwinkle fleece.
I would recommend this product.

I own several of these tops. The new version is slightly heavier fabric, the top is a bit more fitted and slightly longer, with a bit of elastic around the wrists.
