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.

First thing I noticed was that the "Dark Raspberry" color appears different from it does online. It looks more red/magenta online, while in real life the color is a lot less rich (think Barney purple). I'd prefer for it to be a little thicker and warmer, but other than that this jacket is great and super comfortable! I recommend.

I love my new Columbia fleece! The price was unbeatable, and the jacket fit perfectly. It's a great weight for cool southern temps. It doesn't get super cold here, so this jacket is just right. It's not too heavy, but it keeps me warm. I got the black one and can wear it with a variety of things. I highly recommend it!

I like the warmth of my fleece & it fits perfectly but it already is falling apart & I haven't even had it for a month. I wish I could post a picture to show what I'm talking about.

This fleece jacket is great for cooler days outside. When I first got it in the mail it felt thin but when I wear it with a long sleeve it does a good job of keeping me warm, it certainly does not keep all the wind out, but that's okay because that's not what its built for. The only thing I was disappoint in was the color. I ordered the Dark Raspberry and I might as well have ordered the purple one. The way it looks online is not true to the real color that it comes in
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this item at a retail store a couple years ago and loved it. I was so happy to find the same one offered on line -- plus it was on sale for nearly 1/2 off! I ordered 2. The colors are rich and vibrant (bright rose and harbor blue). The fleece is soft and not flimsy. It runs true to size and is great for layering. I have broad shoulders and long arms and the raglan sleeves make it a great fit. It doesn't bind through the shoulders and the sleeves are long enough. I ordered a 3rd one as a gift after mine came and I liked them so well. I give this fleece 5 stars!
I would recommend this product.

I love this fleece so much. I wear it almost everyday. It is so soft and keeps me so warm. I love it so much, I'm buying one for my mom! I'm 5'4" and 125 lb. and I bought a small. It does fit a little big but I like the extra wiggle room. I recommend this to everyone!

I ordered this in black and when I got it in the mail it was definitely more of a dark gray as opposed to the black pictured online. I wear a small in pretty much all my other jackets and felt like I was swimming a little in this. I'm 5'5" and about 125 so it was a little big. The fit doesn't really taper in on the sides like it does in the pictures. I'm gonna try to exchange this for a smaller size and hope that it does the trick.

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 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.
