This top is a great winter option used alone or in layering. The way it tapers through the waist is very flattering. It is soft and fleecy inside, next to your skin. My only negative comment is that some of the seam work is sloppy, especially around the cuffs. There are numerous loose thread ends that haven't been tied off, and I am afraid they may unravel at some point. I would still buy this top in an additional color, none the less.
I would recommend this product.

This top is ridiculously soft! I like the stretch panels. I would have ordered a medium if I had realized they are in the arms (I think the arms on Columbia clothing run a bit narrow for me). I also like that the sleeve extends over my hand on the top for a little extra warmth:)
I would recommend this product.

There isn't a lot of elasticity in this pull over, and the sides are cut a bit strange, so they aren't very slimming around the waiste. It needs more stucture or a material with more stretch to hold its shape when you wear it, but its super coze and I LOVE the sleeves. I'm 5'9, and sleeves are never long enough for me! These are great. So if you are ok with less flattering cut for cozy and comfortable- its for you!
I would recommend this product.

I purchased the Black color and love it just as it is. I wanted to buy the other colors but was concerned about how much contrast the there would be with the side panels. I hope they make this product with the heather as the side panels as well.
I would recommend this product.

The pattern is a cute variation on a nice knitted outside fabric, the fleece part is the lining inside. This makes it great for doing this outdoors and not getting all kinds of dirt/etc stuck to the fleece. I wear a medium and the fit is comfortable and snug but not too bulky. The collar is a bit high which is nice to zip up when it's brisk and cold out.
My only negative on this is the zipper seems a little light and not substantial. I'll have to see how it wears over time, but I'm slightly worried about it breaking or catching.
So far after 2 washings it comes out looking great.
I would recommend this product.

I love my new 'optic got it', the color, the fit, it is very flattering. I have not washed it yet, only tried it on and like it. Fits well! I usually wear a size 10 and the large works well.
I would recommend this product.

I now have 4 "half zips" some in heather and fusion. I love each and every one! I'm always too warm and the zip allows me to cool down or warm up. Going to cold climates soon and envision great flexibility and layering with the half zip!
I would recommend this product.

This pullover is very soft and warm and cute. I wish the cut was slimmer, it feels a little like it's floating around my middle and since it has a curvy cut it hangs a little weird. Overall I think I'll use it alot, it looks great with jeans or on the trail.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this pullover in 2011 in the teal color and really loved it. I have a slight (narrow) build and the xs fits really, really well. One small issue that I had was that the thumb holes on the sleeves pulled a little more than was comfortable, which I guess means my arms were a little too long for the cut. I went above and beyond in caring for the pullover, washing it only in cold and on my machine's gentle wool cycle. No dryer. After a year of regular use, the color is still vibrant, and there is a small amount of pilling.
Fast forward to 2012 and I bought the deep purple color. The fabric quality/texture etc... appears to be exactly the same as 2011. I was pleased to see that the thumb holes have been nixed from the end of the sleeves in this year's version. However, the 2012 design added panels into the sides in a different fabric. The panels bunch on my small frame ever so slightly, so the fit doesn't quite skim the body as the version without the panels. I'm keeping the jacket b/c the color and all else is just perfect.
My wish for 2013 would be to nix the panels so the fabric is all in one piece and lays better - and I'd load up on a few more! Thanks Columbia!
I would recommend this product.
