Customer reviews for Columbia Women’s Glacial™ Fleece III Hoodie

Columbia Women’s Glacial™ Fleece III Hoodie

A cozy, lightweight layer for when the cool weather hits, this microfleece hoodie is fuzzy on the outside, smooth on the inside, and treated with an anti-pill finish so it won’t shed on your other layers.

I bought one of these (purple) light fleece hoodies last winter at Cabelas while shopping with my husband. What else is a girl to do in a huge manly store?! I wear it literally all the time. I love it so much that I bought another one (pink) from Columbia online this winter. I wanted the blue one too, but were out of my size :(. It is perfect because it is fitted, but not too tight, therefore it has a womanly fit unlike a big bulky sweat shirt, yet provides the same cozy warmth. I love that it has a pocket for your hands too. The value is exceptional - on sale for $24.90 - what a steal! It is casual, but you can "dress it up" if you throw on a cute scarf with it. My favorite cool weather outfit: warm leggings, Columbia fleece hoodie & UGG boots!! Thermal cup of coffee optional!
I would recommend this product.

I love this hoodie. It is very comfortable and flattering. I am 5"5" 110lbs and the extra small fits me perfectly. Not too tight and the sleeves are just long enough. Sometimes sleeves run short on me, but not this hoodie. It also washes very well and looks close to new after 5 washes already.
I would recommend this product.

I love the detailing on this shirt, like the shirring across the back and the seams running down the sides and on the upper chest. Very feminine, and takes a cozy fleece to the next level. Great for casual workdays, running errands on the weekend, lounging on the couch. Hood is really roomy and cozy too.
Runs about one size smaller, I am 5'3", 125lbs, 34B and the small is roomy enough for a thin shirt underneath. I really love this shirt and would absolutely recommend.

The fit is slimming and the micro fleece feels so soft. I really am disappointed I can't order more.

I odered this fleece hoodie in blue color. I am 6ft tall and normally wear size M, but got the fleece in size L and it fits perfect, with some room to spear. It is light weight and functional, perfect for outdoors or a coold summer night by the beach. The only complaint I have is that the hood is a bit large and not quite sits well, when fleece is on. I would have prefered it without a hood better. Other than that is it is great product and I will have a great use out of it.
I would recommend this product.

I ordered again based on the reviews, as recommended I went up a size to an X-large when I normally wear a large in majority of items like this. First of all I ordered the Sea Salt color thinking it would be an off white, it's not it is a White. Secondly as mentioned, it is thin and will need to be layered. Which I had ordered the Benson Springs Jacket in a what I would call Sea Salt color which will work well. I guess I will keep it for that reason, otherwise I would recommend wearing a cami underneath it!
I do not recommend this product.

I read most of reviews before I purchase this item,Its very soft, very comfortable to wear. I am 5'4, 115lbs. XS is fit but a bit long on the sleeve. But I don't feel as warm as other viewers. Good thing about Columbia is they sew their logo of most of products instead of print it. That tells me they focus on detail even just a shirt. Very impressive. I use to purchase NF al but they are not into detail anymore. so I purchase Columbia instead. There is one thing confusing me is they change their number all the time, you will need to find the right time to purchase in order to get good deal.
I would recommend this product.

I am 5'7" around 150 lbs. and wear a size 10. I ordered a M and it was too snug. The fabric was thin. I thought it was cute but had to return due to being too small.

Got this on sale. It looks and feels nice and is very soft. But it is also very thin so if you live in a cold place this will be one of many layers you will need. I would recommend it on sale as it is nice but at its full price I would expect something warmer.
I do not recommend this product.

I am 5'7" and 133lbs, and hour glass shape. I could not be more happy with this hoodie!! I ordered red hibiscus in S and it fits perfectly! This color is actually more of a bright deep coral than red, which I loved. I have a long torso and arms and this fit me wonderfully.
I would recommend this product.

I love the color, I got the red hibiscus, it wasn't really red, more like a deep coral. I wear it over my normal clothes and under a jacket so it's warm.

This is my new favorite lightweight hoodie. I can wear it with a t-shirt underneath when it's a little breezy or easily layer it under a coat. Because of how lightweight it is it works better as a top than a hoodie, but I prefer to wear something underneath since I can feel the seam across the back if I wear it by itself.
One thing I LOVE about this hoodie is the little extra length in the arms. Even with my arms stretched out in front of me they don't pull back past my wrists.
One note: super busty people might want to size up. I'm 5'10" with a 41" chest and I show little stretch lines on the chest. Not much of a problem, I just wear it with a sports bra but if you were larger I could see it being uncomfortable.
I would recommend this product.

This is a very flattering fleece. It looks like I've had it for decades and that it was made for me. It is very casual and very comfy. It is not a thicker fleece, so I end up wearing it with a fleece vest on colder days. I have a long torso and usually wear a 6-8 top. Based on other reviews, I went with the small and it is comfy without being baggy.
I would recommend this product.

This is NOT going to be the warmest winter hoodie you own, but the micro fleece is a very soft, dense and thin material. It all makes for a really lightweight, yet very cozy hoodie. The first time I put it on I just melted. The thickness is great for layering under a coat or jacket and I really enjoy the large hood for days I feel crummy and would rather run my errands incognito.
I am a muscly and chesty 150lbs and the size L fits with a nice amount of wiggle room. Very true to size.
My only complaint is that the front pocket is not fully lined with fleece. The front half obviously has it, but there is only a thin layer of athletic jersey mesh between your hands and your tummy. I haven't experienced a windy day with this hoodie on, but I can't imagine the unlined pocket keeping even a modest draft out. If they fully lined the pocket, I would give it 5 stars for function.
I would recommend this product.
