I bought 2 and especially love the Groovy Pink! More form fit that previous fleeces I have bought from Columbia.
I would recommend this product.

I wanted a fleece jacket with a little more style than the basic no-shape fleece. This jacket fit the bill perfectly. I found it to be true to size, not smaller than what other reviews stated. It can be dressed up with a pretty scarf or worn with sweats for walking or hiking! Great all purpose jacket!
I would recommend this product.

This is a great fitted design that is very flattering. It's still roomy enough to be very comfortable. Love this design! For sizing reference, i'm 5'3" and 115 pounds and purchased a size small.

Received compliments on this fleece.It runs small since it's tailored as another reviewer noted,I like this.For me,with an athletic build,I wanted a medium versus the tighter fitting size small to allow for movement;sleeves are a little long. Having a pocket in the arm of a technical fleece layer's great for things like lip balm,key,MP3 player.As the seasons change,I've worn a ultra light down vest over it,still comfortable. Washes great,and I hang dry it.
I would recommend this product.

This fleece is the perfect weight not too heavy...not too light.
It has a very flattering fit, but not tight. I have 4 of these in different colors...love this style!!!
I weight 125 and 5 1/2' tall and the size small is perfect. I wash it on the cold cycle and just hang to dry. Fits as if its brand new!!!
I would recommend this product.

I've been a big fan of Columbia in the past and have bought many products but the quality just isn't the same anymore.
The fleece is thinner than before, the zippers are much cheaper and of poor construction, the collar is proportionately too big, and the sizing is definitely off (although I think they run big rather than small).
I've bought other sweatshirts for less of better quality. I hope that Columbia improves its quality again because I have liked this brand so much in the past.
Their order processing, customer service and web site are great and these things have made me come back and try again but I'll only come back so many more times if the product quality stays poor.
I do not recommend this product.

I bought this and a Benton fleece --- kept the Benton and returned the Fast Trek II --- even though it is more stylish. The Fast Trek II size S was a bit tight in the shoulders and the zipper was finicky. The Benson size S fit perfectly.
I do not recommend this product.

This was my second Columbia Fast Trek fleece, so I knew I would love the fit. My original fleece was black, but I wanted a bit of color so I purchased it in Air Stream. It appeared to be a light blue color in the picture, but when I received it in the mail I was a little bit shocked! Wow, was it bright! I would call it more of an electric baby blue. Or even more aquamarine. Despite my initial shock, I am keeping it to combat the depressing winter colors around me. Not sure if you can tell in the picture, but the "Columbia" lettering is white on the actual jacket, so it definitely pops.
I did not find it to run small like other reviewers. Just keep in mind that it's more form fitting than most of the bulky, shapeless fleece jackets out there. True to size for me, got a S. I'm 5'9" and typically wear a size 4 or 6.
I would recommend this product.

I got the red hibiscus and love it. The minute I put it on
I knew it would be a favorite. I love it so much I got another one in a different color. It is soft and warm and you can wear it almost anywhere.

I think I have worn it every day since I got it. I wish the shipping had been a tiny bit faster but that is literally my only complaint. It fits nicely, not too tight and not too loose. For reference, I'm 5'2", 117lbs, 32D and I ordered an XS.
I would recommend this product.

I bought the color "Air Stream" and find it to be much brighter than in the little color box on this site. It is a color that would look well w a variety of skin and hair colors.
Bc this was my first Colombia purchase, I decided to err on the side of a little too big than a little too small.
I bought the large.
It is very roomy and the sleeves cover past my wrists.
The fit is "cozy" more than "stylish". It is a little bulky on me although I prefer this to an item being too snug.
The fabric is very durable and plush.
This was a delightful surprise compared to the continuously decreasing quality in fabric that characterizes many clothing items these past few years.
I would buy this item again and even buy the size large again.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this fleece a couple of weeks ago and have worn it nearly every day since. It's warm for outside, but lightweight enough to keep on inside, so it functions almost like a warm cardigan. I want more in additional colors!

Love this jacket I wear it almost every day instead of a sweater around the house but I also wear it out. It is a fitted jacket in the softest fleece and looks great on instead of the boxy fleece that everyone else sells. I love the fact that it does not have a hood adding bulk to the back. I have the light turquise, powder blue, sea salt and emerald green. Just love it. Purchased it intially at the Columbia Outlet and the rest online.
I would recommend this product.

This is my third purchase of this jacket in black (though technically my daughter has paid for the last two). My daughter lost my others and it is such a go-to item in my closet I can't be without it! It is tailored, so it does not have the boxy look that so many other fleece jackets have. The pockets are a good size without being too large or too small. The zippers have always worked well without any issues. The fleece is a medium weight so it is a great jacket to throw on under a light coat if it is too cool to where it alone. I also own this jacket in the groovy pink and love the color!
I would recommend this product.

My daughter loved this fleece - wore it right after opening it. The color was as represented and it fit well. I read the reviews and bought one size larger than she normally wears (small) because everyone said it ran small. The medium was perfect.

This fleece does run small, I ordered the next size up and it fits just right. So as long as my breast don't grow or I don't gain any weight I'm good. Other than that, it's a nice fleece. It's warm and looks nice. I like the long sleeves, the bottom hits my 1st set of knuckles.
I would recommend this product.
