I ordered this product because my old one is/ was my favorite garment. The new one is longer, tighter and the collar is higher then then one I love had to send back.
I do not recommend this product.

I purchased this pullover to wear over other layers. The fit is not constricting as are so many other products made today. I am very satisfied.
I would recommend this product.

Great all around pullover that isn't too light that you don't feel warm but also isn't too heavy where you are sweating. It's a great for layering. Love the color also

From the picture on line, I expected a red shirt. The color name is red hyacinth but it is more coral or light orange. Very disappointing.
I do not recommend this product.

I ordered the 'red hibiscus' and it is a good product. The material is nice and I like to wear it as an extra layer under a jacket when it is windy or a little chilly out (I live in the Midwest where the weather can change at any given moment). I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for an extra layer to wear under a jacket or coat, a layer that is not too heavy. Also, the sleeves were a little (about half an inch) too short at the wrist.
I would recommend this product.

Love the harbor blue color. Lightweight, yet warm. Sized up since the website said it runs small. Glad I did. Now I have an easy fit. Highly recommend.

I purchased one of these tops and loved it so much I bought 2 more. The top is nice and light and because I bought a size up I can put a tank or t-shirt under it for extra warmth. The top washes very nicely and looks great with the pants I also purchased. I just wish it had pockets.
I would recommend this product.

This is a great top for cold days! Very soft and thin fleece but much warmer than heavier ones I have owned. Runs very small, however, so go up a size. I am a regular 16 in most clothing and the XL was way too tight. The 1X is just right.
I would recommend this product.

I like this fleece, it is very light but keeps you warm when needed. The material is very soft, the quality is excellent. I have had higher priced items previously which couldn't reach the level of this product. Satisfied and happy.

Love these, I don't want to call it a sweatshirt, because it's not your average big bulky sweatshirt, but provides the same comfort and warmth. You can wear these with most anything and everywhere. Perfect shirt when it's chilly outside.

I love the look. I am 3x and it fits great. I just wish it was warmer! I had hoped it would be warmer than just throwing on a long sleeve T but no dice. It doesn't offer much warmth which surprised me since it is fleece. Every other Columbia product I have bought I have loved so I was disappointed that this didn't fully deliver.
I do not recommend this product.

I love these fleece shirts. Lightweight, comfortable, great for layering. I like the fit, loose enough for comfort, but not sloppy. I came back for more colors. Haven't washed yet, so can't speak for how they launder.

I was looking for a 1/4 zip pullover fleece that wasn't to heavy but would still keep me warm. This perfect! I can wear comfortably alone or layer either way I'm sure to be warm and comfortable. And to that is important because I am always having hot and cold flashes and this just enough
I would recommend this product.

I have one from a few years ago in XL but ordered a 1X in the two-tone green and black hoping it would be a little bigger. I should have ordered the 2X. The colors are nice. It's light and warm. I did need to wear a tank underneath since it's a little thin. My biggest complaint is the sleeves need to be longer. Overall it's ok but it will probably be the last I purchase.
I would recommend this product.
