The fleece is pretty nice. I just imagined the color to be darker because online it's perceived to be a dark purple. That's all
I would recommend this product.

I bought this item in Razzle size large because I am large chested and I normally wear a large in shirts. The last time I bought a Columbia jacket was spring 2014 and the medium was tight in the chest. I have a 39" chest and 31" waist and I'm 5'6".
I love this jacket and I think it will be perfect for colder months!
I would recommend this product.

I found one of these in an outlet store and had to email customer service with all the details to find out how I could get a few more. It is comfortable, warm and holds up better than fleece. I am cold natured so I like to wear this with a t-shirt and a pull-over sweater underneath. Perfect warmth indoors and out. I have washed it dozens of times and it is holding up great. Wish it would go on sale so I could order a dozen more :)
I would recommend this product.

I'm 5'11" and slim with long arms and the sleeves and body length fit perfect. It's nice and soft too!
The color was more pale than the picture indicated but still pleasant. I had purchased the "razzle" color.
Highly recommended :)

Sleeves could be a little longer, I'm afraid I'll rip it if I try to move my arms around with my thumbs in the thumb holes.
Body is fleece but the hood is non-staticy material, which is nice. The hood is a bit tight around the face though. I prefer to have a more visor-like forehead part of the hood to keep rain out of my eyes.
It is warm and the medium fit is good for 5'8 130lbs.
I would recommend this product.

I got this hoodie on sale. For $25, this is a great hoodie. It fits well and is very flattering. The elderberry color is beautiful. I only wish that the inside is lined with something other than fleece, but of course that would be asking for too much for the price. :P
I would recommend this product.

I was disappointed by the size of this jacket. It is smaller than the standard Columbia fleece, at least my XL was. Fortunately the wrist warmer add about 1.5 inches to the arm length, making it wearable.

This is a great fleece. Very warm, feels like it will last a long time. My only complaint is I ordered the "eldeberry" - thinking it would have some purple but it just maroon. They should just call it maroon.

This jacket is very lightwweight but warm on it's on. Thin enought to layer also. Not cold enought to wear yet but believe it will be great to run in on cold mornings.

This is a great hoodie. Heavy-weight enough to feel substantially protective, but not bulky. The hood snugs around your head so the wind can't blow it off. It has a flattering fit.
My only complaint was how BIG it is! I normally wear size L in tops (I have small shoulders but am well-endowed up front) and this was waaaay too big all the way around. Returned it for a Med. I recommend ordering a size down.
Oh, and if you order the orange prepare to look like a construction worker - it is BRIGHT!!!
I would recommend this product.

Bought this hoodie on a whim, after reading the reviews. Some said smaller than normal, some said larger. My experience is that it is true to size except it is a straighter, slim-ish cut. Does not hug my body tightly, it fits just right. (I am size XL, and I do not look like a sausage in this hoodie.) lol
It is a microfiber fabric that is very cozy. The sleeves are long-ish with a thumb slot in the inner cuff. Zipper closure rises up to the nose, so you can tuck your face down is blustery weather. It is surprisingly wind-resistant. Deep, full, zippered pockets accommodate even thickly-gloved hands.
All in all, an excellent purchase if I do say so myself!

Absolutely love the fit and function with the thumb holes. The only issue is I'm on my third one. Had to return the first one due to the stitching coming undone and returned the second one due to the stitching where the two materials came together was twisted. Not up t parr with what I am used to from Columbia, but can't wait to get one I can actually keep and wear! Love the look and the fit with!

This hoodie is more fitted than I expected so it didn't work as well as the Benton Springs Full Zip jacket when wearing over a shirt, but if I'd ordered a size larger, it would have been perfect. I'll use it over a knit shirt and it will be perfect for walks and the gym.

I was thrilled with my purchase and the service I received as well. 1st quality my daughter was thrilled and it fits perfectly. Received it in miraculous timing. and a great price. My daughter rides horses and she said it keeps her super warm without the bulk and uncomforableness of a heavy coat.

I originally saw this jacket in Blue and got it for my mom for her birthday, I tried it on to make sure of fit and thought it was so awesome I had to get myself one and so I picked up a Pink one for myself. We both love our jackets and wear them walking the dog, going on a brisk walk, or out for whatever.
