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.

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.

I have two of these now and I wish I had one in every color. These are so soft and comfortable. They make you feel warm and cozy. I am a stay at home mom and always running the kids around so these are handy on cool mornings when bringing the kids to school, they keep you warm but you don't get hot. They are really thin micro fleece. I can't say enough good things about this. Buy one you will not regret it.
I would recommend this product.
