This product is a classic 1/4 zip fleece. It is what it is - soft and comfy. However, the fit on Columbia tops in general is all over the board. I ordered a L in this one to fit my 5'10" frame. The sleeves are short and the length across the back is tight. I run into this a lot with Columbia. Sometimes I will exchange for a XL and then it looks like I'm wearing a tent, but at least the sleeves are long enough and the I don't feel like I'm going to bust through the shoulders like the Hulk. I am normal build and I love Columbia, but don't feel like wearing tents in all their tops. And then 1/2 of the L items I order fit perfect.
I would recommend this product.

I love this fleece! it's super warm & soft without a bulky feel. You can just feel the good quality when you put it on! I ordered a size small and it fits great! not too tight ( so its easy to put a baselayer under) but not overly loose. I would defiantly recommend this fleece to a friend.

Columbia seems to have its OWN version of the color red. This is the second time I've ordered a red top and both of them have a pinkish/orangish hue to them. They are a fine color (I kept both products) but they absolutely are NOT red. The fit is good for me, the fabric is a not as heavy as I was expecting, but in the Pacific Northwest, we need a variety of outerware to be comfortable as the weather is so changeable.
Given these drawbacks, I would still recommend the product.
I would recommend this product.

Purchased this 1/2 zip to wear over a shirt. I ordered a medium to ensure it would fit with room. To my surprise, it was extremely small and fit way too snug. This works more as a base layer as it is a very close fit. It is also a very thin fleece in terms of material. Not sure I would even rate it at 100. As a layer on top of a shirt, it did keep me warm. Recommend you consider ordering one to two sizes up from what you normally wear to ensure you have plenty of room.
I do not recommend this product.

I was looking for a pullover that wasn't too heavy or bulky. This was just right. It is perfect under a jacket or vest and provides just enough warmth to wear around the house when it's chilly without weighing me down. The size runs a bit small so I would recommend if your tummy isn't perfectly flat going a size up. I ordered medium which I wear in most everything and it was a little snug at first but loosens up after wearing. I will stay with the medium. Style-wise it is very cute on with plenty of coverage in the back. I will order more of this item for sure. I got it in white and love it! Very versatile.
I would recommend this product.

It seems lately that the Columbia womenswear is running small. I normally wear a large, but read the "active fit" comment on the item description. The XL fits perfectly and is quite comfortable. It's lightweight, which I love for hiking and daily activities.
I would recommend this product.

I have absolutely loved the Glacial 1/2 zip fleeces - I have 5 of them. I wear them daily and love the lightweight warmth and flattering fit they provide. I recently purchased a new one to add to my collection and am totally disappointed in its fit and style. I HATE the "roomy" sizing, the extremely large collar, and the darts at the bust. It has a totally frumpy look. Please, Columbia, go back to the last 2-3 years' style in this fleece.
I do not recommend this product.

I really like this half zip fleece! I would order a bunch more of them IF they were offered in several more neutral colors, such as grey, charcoal grey, navy. I don't want hot pink and purple fleece. I have the black and it is my favorite everyday fleece. Soft, lightweight, and I like the zipper hight if fully zipped. Very comfortable and flattering. Columbia - if you read these reviews, I think you'd have a lot more orders if you included some more neutral colors. I'd order them all.
I would recommend this product.

I love the sweater, its warm beyond belief and it is very cozy my only complaint is that the color was not what I expected. It is described as "Red Hibiscus" but it more more of an electric neon red color.

I really like this pullover, however it's something you would wear over a tank or sports bra, unless you went up a size or two to be an actual pull over.The fit its a little clingy, but very comfortable.
I would recommend this product.

As I bought this on line, I had not seen it or tried it on. I was a little apprehensive, but know Columbia has great products. I got an email telling me the top had been shipped and to expect it within 7 days...the time was much quicker! The package was very light and my first thought was...oh no....this cannot be a fleece top as they are usually thick. But it was.....and so soft. Tried it on...and it is perfect. True to size and a perfect weight for wearing all day! And it washes like a dream! My new favorite shirt! Will definitely get more Columbia products!
I would recommend this product.
