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.

Bought this to replace a Columbia fleece jacket I got 6-8 years ago. As with all fleece these days, it's not as thick as the older ones, but about as thick as you can get right now. This is my outdoor jacket until temps drop below 55 degrees. I like the inside and outside pockets. Sleeves are a little long, but cuffs roll up better than on most jackets.
One question for the designers - why does the Men's equivalent have a loop in the collar for hanging, while the women's doesn't? Now I have to add one myself.
I would recommend this product.

Purchased this jacket at the request of my oldest granddaughter , (16) . She wants this for one of her gifts for Christmas. When she told me "one", I chuckled not realizing that I could get some great values on Columbia merchandise. Very pleased when she selected this one. Great quality at great price, so she's happy and so is Nana 's wallet, since I have two other teenage granddaughters to buy for as well as a grandson. So after seeing value that could be had, I have two more jackets in cart for other family members. And I also like the Rewards program that's offered.
I would recommend this product.

I ordered a XL because it said that it fit small. It fits perfectly. It feels warm and will probably be enough coat for me for the whole winter in Va Beach. I would suggest ordering a size up like I did.

I bought this for just a nice comfortable jacket I could use when going between classes. I bought this in a small (I can fit in a small and medium depending on the brands) and this fit perfectly with room! This jacket is soft, so comfortable and at a great price! Great buy!!!!

I was disappointed because I thought this was red.. I really need a red columbia.. but whatever! It's cute but it's more like a orange/pink.. I only kept it because people said so many times how cute it was, and they loved the color... Oh well, just have to pay more attention to what I buy. Overall I'm a columbia collector.. so it's going to used no matter what!
I would recommend this product.

I treat myself to a new one of these Columbia fleece jackets every year or two, and I wear them all winter long. They are such great quality, I don't ever actually wear them out, but just rotate them so that my last year's jacket is the one I don't mind to get dirty in, and my this year's jacket is the one I wear around town. I normally buy them from a local store, but I was so excited to see the relatively huge color selection when I bought directly from Columbia! I got Hyper Purple, and the color is gorgeous! Bright, but not overwhelming. The jacket is very comfortable and warm, and also great for layering. A great buy.
I would recommend this product.

nice shirt, the only problem I have x small is uncomfortable when I zip it up to neck. Near neck its tight, but size smaller is too big for me. So I'm wearing but don't zip it to high.

This is my second one that I bought. I have a grey and a black one both in extra smalls and they fit perfectly. The jacket isn't heavy but still keeps you warm. I hate wearing giant winter coats, so if you're like me this is a great jacket. I wear it throughout all of fall, December, and March. It also is good for layering when it gets really cold
I would recommend this product.

The Columbia navy jacket color was more of a peacock blue. Very nice and comfortable just not the advertised color.

I had been looking for a fleece to use during the cool of Autumn and early Spring when I just need a little more than long sleeves and less than a coat and this fleece does the job. It was a bit thinner than I expected but works great with layering. I love the softness and zippered front pockets. The color is awesome too, hyper purple is definitely purple! All together a very satisfactory product. I'll be buying a similar one for my husband.
I would recommend this product.

I love this fleece! I had purchased the fast trek fleece and love that as well, but they are different. The Brenton springs fleece is so soft and comfy it's like being wrapped in a fuzzy blanket! Who wouldn't love that?! In addition to this, the fit is not at all bulky, but very flattering. I love the drawstring you can use to tighten the waist. I usually have a problem with the fit of things because I have a small waist, but a decent chest, so usually things are too baggy in some areas and too loose in others. No problem with this fleece! The fit is great! I'm about 5'3" and around 135 lbs, the XS fits perfectly! The only "issue" I had was that the color is not what is pictured for the Navy. Online it appears to be a dark, rich, almost midnight blue color, but in reality it's more of a washed out navy, like the color of jeans. It's not terrible, just not what I expected. It's just so comfy I can't complain about it!
I would recommend this product.

This little jacket is lightweight, soft and warm. I bought it to wear at work because I get chilled with air vents blowing over my head. It keeps me warm and comfortable while I'm working. I purchased a size larger than I would normally buy, because I knew there would be occasions when I would be putting this on over a sweater and I wanted to make sure I had good sleeve length and arm movement.
I would recommend this product.

I love this jacket for fall and winter. It is light enough that I do not get too hot, and is thick enough to keep me warm in the winter! If you have to walk outside a lot like I do, such as on a college campus, this jacket is perfect for you!
