This jacket was exactly what I was looking for and what I was expecting. I like that it has a hood so I can use in the fall and winter.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased several of these for an outdoor program, not realizing how long they are (well onto the hips, and several inches below any outer shell that might go over them). I simply was not attenuated to the "long" in the product name. It is perfectly functional (and quite stylish) to wear around town, but not for active outdoor pursuits.
I do not recommend this product.

I purchased the product and the Medium was too small. I'm a size 8. I normally wear size Small. Columbia does not provide a postage free return label. It would cost $8 to return. Very disappointed.
I do not recommend this product.

This is a five star product. It is a great layering piece under a coat for a cold day or night or you can wear it alone on a chilling evening. My favorite part about this hoodie is the length. It protects your legs from the cold!
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this long hoodie, but all the descriptions I have read say that it is fully lined. It is not. Only the hood is lined. It is nearly impossible to get off if you have any long sleeves on. Love the length of it, but really need that lining.
I would recommend this product.

Bought one color then ended up buying 2 more. Great length, a bit longer than your normal zip up which I like, especially when wearing with yoga pants. The shape and fit overall are just great and true to size.
I would recommend this product.

I am 5'10 and I wear a medium. I ordered this in XL so I could put a million layer under it. Honestly, I am considering exchangeing this for a medium or large as this jacket is SUPER WARM!. I love this jacket so much that I am going to send one to my friends and relatives who live in NY, NJ, Michigan and CO. They have extemely cold weather and will appreciate it. Sleeves fit my long arms and the length is wonderful. Friends and family are all average height and this jacket will fit them perfectly. Also, this is not tight in the waist but it does follow the silloute of a lady giving you a nice shape. Not at all tight in the waist and far from boxy. This year I have tried jackets from LLBean, Lands End and Eddie Bauer and this one blows the rest out of the water as far as warmth, quality and fit. My favorite fleece jacket in a long, long time. Wish this was sold in fushia and light pink and a ton of other colors.
I would recommend this product.

I bought two of these and will probably buy one more. They are very warm, great quality and have a very nice cut. It is very flattering the body! Buy one and you won't need any other light weight jacket in Colorado! Very glad I invested in this hoodie-jacket!
I would recommend this product.

I love the style of this fleece jacket, but the fit is funky: I wear medium except I usually buy large in jackets, since I have broad shoulders and I like jackets looser. This large fit snug across the shoulders and hips, and the arms are extra long - usually I have the opposite problem with sleeves. They are styled to be long but in this case they cover my hands completely.
I would recommend this product.

I got this Hoodie in Light Grape and am very happy with my purchase. It is very flattering especaially if you have a curvy body (in my case). I went with size S, which is usually what I get for sweaters.
I would recommend this product.

Ordered the jacket in plum, love the color. Love the style of the jacket. However, I usually wear a large and this jacket was a little too fitted for me. No extra room, except in the sleeves. They were super long. I can always shorten those. I am going to return the L and try an XL. Really like the style and the brand so I hope I am not disappointed.
I would recommend this product.

I love the longer length of the hoodie. At first thought it seemed too thin but very warm and good for layering, raincoat fits nicely over it. I am a size 8 and the medium fits perfect. The only adjustment I would make is the sleeves are 2 inches too long for me, I cuff them. The black that I purchased is more like a dark charcoal gray, but very pretty.
I would recommend this product.

This jacket is warm and thick; more so than the Benton Springs without the hood. My only problem is it does run a little small so I would order the next size up. Trouble is the sleeves are long so I'm afraid the sleeves would be out of control. But it is a great jacket!
I would recommend this product.
