Customer reviews for Columbia Women's Glacial™ Fleece III Hoodie - Extended Size

Columbia Women's Glacial™ Fleece III Hoodie - Extended Size

A cozy, lightweight layer for when the cool weather hits, this microfleece hoodie is fuzzy on the outside, smooth on the inside, and treated with an anti-pill finish so it won’t shed on your other layers.

I purchased this item a little larger than I usually wear because i wanted to be able wear multiple layers in some circumstances. It is really great color, design and super comfortable. I would confidently say, if I was only wearing two layers a size smaller would be perfect... But this was perfect for what I needed.
I would recommend this product.

I love this lightweight fleece hoodie. It's stylish with a gathered back detail, rounded front yoke, and almost tunic length.
2X is usually a little too big on me (1X slightly too small), so I went with the 2X. It fit perfectly -- not snug but not too roomie. Perfect for a t-shirt underneath or tank underneath.
I would recommend this product.

Liked the look of this on the website. The coral color is pretty and it seemed as though this would be a light pullover for early spring or fall. In person however, it is 100% polyester and feels like the cheapest children's pajamas you'd buy in a discount store. The ones you don't buy for your child because they are not flame retardant. Fuzzy on the outside slick on the inside.
I could see after a few washes it would be not quite so pretty. The feel of the material and the fact that it was so cheaply made me return it.
I do not recommend this product.

I was hesitant to order since I was afraid it would be too small. However, I ordered the 3X and it fit just fine. I am 5"8 and the bottom of the hoodie goes to the middle of my butt. I am loving my new hoodie so much I ordered another one. I have washed it in cold water and hang dry it and it doesnt seemed to have lost its shape or shrank at all.
I would recommend this product.

I have bought three of these and my sister needed a new top for a bridal shower and gave her one and she loved I. That is why I bought 2 more after I purchased one that is how much I love it.
I would recommend this product.

This top is a very lightweight fleece top. Beautiful Coral Glow color . Definitely size up one size, which I did and fit is perfect. Covers my butt, so very comfortable on. I think I will enjoy wearing this top both inside and outside (under a jacket), being that it is so lightweight.
I would recommend this product.

This top isn't heavy, it's light weight fleece which is nice. I ordered Oceanic and will order Coral Glow in the near future. It's long enough that you can wear leggings with it and not feel like your bum is hanging out. There is a seam across the chest, but it didn't bother me. I wear a 2x, but ordered a 3x and I will probably order another 3x just so I can layer underneath it. Thank you Columbia for thinking that plus size women need some style with their adventures!
I would recommend this product.

After receiving the Benton and the Kruser, I had high hopes for this hoodie, but it is thin and has no form. The fit is blah looking and I returned. IT runs 1 size small.
I do not recommend this product.

Aside from the fact that everything in my order was larger than expected, this is a nice hoodie. It's not too tight in the neck and the Oceanic was a nice shade although a bit less bright than in the photo. This is comfortable enough to sleep in but as the cut is loose it's probably better to order a size down unless you want it baggy.
I would recommend this product.

I'm very happy with this purchase. I'm ordering at least two more. The color, fit and quality are amazing. I ordered a fleece from another name brand company and was appalled. The cut of the garment was horrible. It looked awful on me. Thank you columbia for caring enough about how a product will actually look on a plus size woman.
I would recommend this product.

I was looking for a very lightweight, microfiber hoodie specifically for travel purposes (where bulky items take up too much space). It is thin, practical and warm enough for cold airplanes without taking up much space, and will suffice in damp conditions without being too warm. I would have preferred a slightly longer length as I am 5' 8", but the length is not unacceptable.
I would recommend this product.

I love the feel of this sweater, it is soft comfortable and a nice material
Only downside is the stitching across the chest, which for me, being big chested, felt constricting and slightly uncomfortable.
Overall a great sweater to be paid with my yoga pants after a workout or under a jacket without a hood
