Not too many extras here, just a good fleece jacket. Be nice if it had some extra inside pockets, but the zippered side pockets are welcomed. Overall, just a solid full-zip fleece to keep them warm and toasty.
I would recommend this product.

I was concerned the gray color fleece we had chosen for my daughter would be to 'unisex' but upon arrival found that they details on the coat, specifically the columbia logo was a light pink thread so we have maximized the color but selecting a pink hat, scarf and gloves to accompany. This jacket is not as thick as the ones we have purchased in the past but equally as warm and light weight...enough to fit under another larger coat as needed. Good buy for $25! We will keep coming back every winter...in fact we have next year's size in the closet ready to go!
I would recommend this product.

I bought this jacket for my daughter to go to Canada in May. It was perfect, she would not take it off. It is very light, but warm enough and OK on rainy days. Size and style was excellent. I have to order now one for my son as well to go to northern Europe.
I would recommend this product.

Love the soft fleece and the contrasting color of the zipper with the jacket in the Opal Blue. I am a petite women and find that this size in girls fits me just fine and is cheaper than the women's sizes too.

Every year I buy my children these jackets. They last year to year and I pass them down to a younger child!
I have never had a zipper break and they always wash clean! The very first one I bought has lasted now for 6 years! Thank you!
I would recommend this product.

I bought 2, 14/16 girls Benton Springs fleece in April. I received them and let my daughter try them on. They were huge on her but I though that maybe she could wear them next year. My older daughter saw them, (she is 5"8, 125 lbs.) and they fit her perfectly. The items are obviously mismarked. I have bought many Columbia items and everything has been fine. However, this is the only time that I have bought items online and I'm not sure if I will do it again any time soon. I'm sure the items would be fine if I got the right size and I am sure that I will purchase other Columbia items in the future.
I do not recommend this product.

My daughter loves her jacket! I did go up a size. She already had a size 4/5 Columbia jacket that was small on her. She normally is wearing that size now. I went up to the 6 and it fits with room to grow.

Bought this our youngest daughter and she loves it, the color is bright and beautiful and material is both warm and cozy and yet still light enough that wearing in early spring makes it just right as it would be in fall. Plus the color is bright makes it easy to find. It cleans up real easy in the wash nothing special which is the best part and when I ordered it no problems in shipping it was fast.
I would recommend this product.

I have been looking for a fleece jacket but could not afford a North Face so I went to Columbia. I am a 24yr old woman but also small, so when I looked at the options, I noticed there was a girls Large size that fit my measurements. I love it! I live in SF where its foggy almost every day and this jacket is perfect for the weather here. It's not too warm so I can't wear it on our coldest days, but its great most days of the year.
I would recommend this product.

I bought a blue and a purple for my twins. The size fit perfectly. I like the way they are longer and hit below the waist. Very functional for our climate in the south. I almost bought them a much more expensive brand which they have just grown out of but saw these and just loved the color selection and the price was just right!
I would recommend this product.

My daughter loves her Columbia jacket, the only con is that we had to settle for the color white. Didn't have her size in what she really wanted. So we have to wash it more often. Other than that it's nice!

Got these jackets for my granddaughters, they loved them. The size was perfect (I got one size 4/5 and another size 10/12) they like the fact they are not bulky and yet still warm. They have been washed once and held up very well.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased two of these for my granddaughters ages 7 & 9. They were a little roomy which is good. Colors were true to color chart. Zippers seem to be of good quality. Guess we'll see the true quality when they are washed. So far would recommend this product.

I was afraid that the interesting color of the fleece online would not be as vibrant in real life when it arrived, but it is such a nice subtly purplish-blue.
It is really soft and I love the feeling of the soft cuffs. They close around my wrists, blocking out cold.
It looks very neat, pretty, and natural.
I would recommend this product.
