This jacket in green is not as represented online. The first and only time I tried it on, my friend said I looked like Kermit the Frog or a Leprechaun. I promptly returned it. If you are looking for something to wear on St. Patrick's Day, then this jacket in green is for you. Otherwise it was fine.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased a fleece for my husbands birthday. He loves green and this is the best one I could find. I ordered a large tall because he has a very long torso. It was very big around so we decided to just send it back and get a large (his normal size)
When we got the large it was shaped incredibly wrong! The bottom looked like someone's sewing machine had gone haywire and it wasn't even a straight line and the bottom...almost like it has been stretched out. The arms started off very big at the top, then went to very tight at the wrists.
My husband is so disappointed that he doesn't even want to order another one and waste our time and money sending it back. I really wish it would have worked because he was so excited about the color of the large tall.
If there is anything you can do to help I would appreciate it. Right now we are out a shipping cost with nothing to show for it.
We were big columbia fans before this, my husband got your Whirlibird coat for christmas and absolutely loves it!
I do not recommend this product.

As always Columbia delivers what you pay for. This fleece is very warm and very functional. The zippered pockets ensure the cell phone and keys stay safe. I highly recommend this fleece.

This fleece is everything I needed for this past winter season. It's light enough but still warm if you dress in layers. A lot of people were complaining about it not fitting correctly, which worried me. However, I ordered a medium and it fit me just the way it was supposed to.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this as primarily to have an alternate fleece and its color. The fabric is a bit lighter than I expected, but comfortable. The size is more of a "fitted" size. If layering, put it on over a light shirt for the first layer. A sweater will not work well beneath it. The pocket are handy as well as the breast pocket feature, which is especially handy when under another layer like a coat or jacket. I'm glad I purchased it on sale, because the standard price is not worth it unless its style is something you must have.
I would recommend this product.

read all the reviews on the website. very helpful. I am 5'10 and athletic built,wt 190 lbs. after reading the reviews I decided to order the medium . the fit was perfect for me. the sleeves are the right length and the fit is athletic type fit. normally I wear a large in everything. if u want loose I suggest going up a size, otherwise go down for athletic fit. the jacket is great , good quality ,and better on the price ,than other brands. I think Columbia is a good overall company to purchase .so , buy the jacket and enjoy the warm feeling u get.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this for my son-in-law for Christmas and read the reviews that said it ran small so I bought one size larger for him. It was too big and I returned it for his usual size - a large. He liked the jacket other than the wrong size.
I would recommend this product.

This fleece is surprisingly toasty warm, has great pockets for my large Samsung 4 phone and other essentials, and just bought another one in a different color. The boulder color was very nice (different from the usual).

I purchased this fleece to add both to my recent coat purchase for additional warmth and also for the use while indoors in place of a sweater or pullover.
This coat is a little big for the size purchase but sits and fits nicely. If you like a custom or firm fit....choose a size well below normal. It is not OVERSIZED just bigger than you expect when you get it.
I would purchase multiple versions of this product if needed. Very nice quality and works very well indoors. Toasty warm without being overwhelming.
You will NOT be disappointed.
I would recommend this product.

This is a very good, light weight fleece jacket. It runs just, and I mean just, slightly small to size. If you normally wear a large jacket, this will be tight with a medium to heavy flannel shirt. But, fine with a light weight shirt. It also works and styles well with a light shirt, this jacket, and a lined vest. I am too old to say I am a, 'çhic magnet', but as an old geezer I have received complements on the styling. Don't really care. It keeps me warm.
I would recommend this product.

I have had a Steens Mountain for a couple of years and like the jacket very much. Construction,material and fit have been great. Great insulation for cool days (down to about 32) and even layers under a coat on cold days. I even wore it inside at work when it was cold. I decided I had to have another in a color other than black. However most Steens colors were dark and I wanted something a little more colorful. I selected a Fast Trek II in the same size as my Steens (med)because of the chest pocket and I liked the Dark Mountain (green) color. Shopping experience was good and so was the shipping. I noticed when I tried on the Fast Trek that the fit was different than the Steens. The body is slimmer cut which was okay but the sleeves are tighter also. Tight enough that it makes it difficult to put on with a long sleeve shirt and it leaves me with a restricted feeling. I am 5' 9" and 170# wear a 15/33 shirt 40 inch coat so I consider myself average in size. I like everything about the jacket with this exception. I wont be able to return it for a larger size because I have already cut off the tags. Hope this review helps someone else.
I would recommend this product.
