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.

Very thin, runs very small (size up!) and has no pockets. Collar is wide when zipper is down.

Lighter weight than expected. I agree with earlier reviewers that the collar design is too high. Order next size larger if you want to layer. Design could benefit from side slits at bottom because fabric clings to garments underneath and tends to ride up.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this item in the sea salt (white). If you are hoping for a heavy weight fleece, then you would want to try other styles. This particular pullover is a light-weight material, but is adequate for cooler days/nights. I'm 5'8 and the fit is pretty true; however, I usually buy "talls" or "long" in clothes. It fits perfect right now and I hope it doesn't shrink when washed.
I would recommend this product.

This is a comfy, cute, warm fleece at a great price. The fleece is thinner than some other Columbia products, but still provides plenty of warmth. Love the fit!

This is perfect for a light chill. I was dreaming of wearing this on my drive home from work the first cool fall day. It is very comfortable and perfect with a light t shirt. I got another I loved it soo much.

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.

This is a great pullover. Keeps you warm but it's not suffocating. It's really soft too.

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 have 3 other Columbia tops purchased 2 yrs aago & love them. The new one is 3 inches longer..not good for short waisted/long legs like me. Will have it altered because of good quality.

These tops are great! They are perfect by themselves on a slightly cool day but even better with a long sleeve t-shirt underneath on a cold day. They are great lightweight solutions for the active individual. Great fit, true to size! Bought two, will buy more! Purchased for my daughter.
