I love these fleece jackets -- I now own 7! They are a perfect weight and so cozy. They are my winter uniform, worn over a turtleneck with jeans. They're also wonderful when Michigan summer evenings turn cool on Lake Huron!
One thing that would make these even better would be to make the zippers two-way zippers. This would eliminate the lower edge bunching up when the wearer sits down with the jacket zipped.
I would recommend this product.

I have owned one of these fleece jackets for quite a while and wanted a new one. The quality remains the same and it's still very warm. I may need to get it in some other colors.

I'd like to order this jacket in the Foxglove color. What's the actual descriptive color of it? ... I ordered a jacket in deep raspberry and the color is VERY different from the picture.

I unfortunately ordered a medium before and it was a little small, with the help from the size guide I ordered a large and it fit perfectly.

This is my 5th Benton Fleece jacket- I love the jacket. I bought the 'quill' color and my only issue is that the fabric feels a little thinner than the other ones that I own. I own both small and medium- I like the medium for layer in the colder weather!
I would recommend this product.

Bought this as a gift for my mother in law and Once again columbia has a great product for an affordable price. Very nice quality and beautiful color(the Quill color is a little brighter than it appears online) but still a great color choice for those who want something a little less flashy .
Runs a little small because she typically wears L not an XL.

To start off I was not satisfied at all. The quality is horrible and I've washed my jacket a few times but I wasn't expecting for my jacket to have small fabric pills and the zipper is broken. I got my jacket just about 3 months ago and I wasn't expecting for It to be in bad quality this fast. And needless to say I don't find it warm at all. Also I got this jacket in a medium and it is feels large. I'm just about 5'5 and about 110 pounds and I feel like the medium is like a EXTRA large to me.But the worst part of it all. I'm not sure how but some how it feels like it Velcros onto my hair and it is very painful and I have experienced it breaking off my hair on one side in the nape.
I'm totally switching to north face.
I do not recommend this product.

I love the Benton Springs jackets. I ordered the Hibiscus Red in an XL and it fits a little tighter than I like. It is a brighter color than I expected but I really like it. I have since ordered a 1X and I like the fit much better. I will say that the sleeves are longer on the XL than they are on the 1X and I have to roll them up. Other than that, I think this is a great jacket and I love that they come in so many colors. I will be back for more!!!
I would recommend this product.

I read the great reviews and loved my previous Columbia fleece jacket, but I really didn't like this one. I ordered this online in black and turqouise and returned it. First of all, the material reminds me more of felt than fleece. I thought it looked cheap and cheesy, especially in a bright color. I also didn't like how it had the elastic band along the bottom. It just looks very out-dated and old ladyish (btw I am 32 mom of 3). I returned it in the store for a different jacket that was a little more expensive and am very very happy with my new one.
I do not recommend this product.

I got this for my daughter who really loved it. She would normally take a large, but the XL fit her with a little roominess. She has long arms so was glad the sleeves were long enough. She loved the zip pockets, the inside pockets and the trimmer fit. A great buy on sale as well.

This is my second Columbia jacket, and it is fabulous! Sizing runs true, but if you want to wear a bulky sweater underneath I'd go up a size for mobility. It's so soft and warm for chilly winter days. I highly recommend this jacket to anyone looking for a durable, high quality fleece. Perfect jacket!

I absolutely LOVE this fleece. The weight is substantial and it holds up well with repeated washings. It does not bind anywhere and the length is a bit longer than other jackets I own....this is a great feature. The only drawback is that not all sizes are available in every color.....I've purchased 3 of these thus far, and will be buying more! I'd love to have on in every color. Absolutely, positively awesome jacket!! Buy it!!

Very nice fit; somewhat slimming. I wear one of my two Colombia fleece jackets almost daily and the zippered pockets are a plus. Very disappointed in the color (Colombia Navy). I do not consider it navy; more of a blue-gray.
I would recommend this product.
