First review of this product, so the stakes are high.
My dad is visiting me this Fall and Winter in Upstate New York and I wanted him to have a nice, warm and stylish coat.
Verdict: My dad loves the fit, texture and color.
He loves to hike, walk and travel...but doesn't like the cold. The Omni-Heat Thermal reflective [it is not thermal insulated so the texture is not thick, it is thin but sturdy] will be good to generate the heat during activity. I am sure it will function great in the winters.
And as with most Columbia products, I think they run a little bigger/longer than other brands--but my dad loves this fit!
However, I don't see the yellow color zipper line as shown in the picture above. Also, there is grey design-pattern under the arms...it looks really stylish
Overall, he is happy with this gift and as always Columbia makes the best outerwear!
I would recommend this product.

Love this jacket !! It is really comfortable and warm. I had many compliments on it and only had it for a few weeks. The price is a bit up there at 100$, with it was around the 70-75$ mark, but over all a great jacket.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this jacket for my stepson. He refuses to wear a "bulky" winter jacket, so we bought this as a compromise. He loves the look, says it keeps him warm and is perfect for all his winter activities. He is 14 so the fact that he is happy and willing to wear it is a success to me!
I would recommend this product.

The inside of this jacket, while useful in retaining body heat, makes it look as though you should be attending a rave of some sort. It is way too psychedelic. The thermal reflective technology in other jackets from Columbia are both useful and stylish and I returned this jacket to get one where my boyfriend wouldn't look like he was just coming from a disco every time he took it off.
I do not recommend this product.

I really like the fleece, it is very modern and sharp looking, good material and warm.
(If you wear it inside out and get a shiny glove to go with it you can pretend to be Michael Jackson too; the omniheat stuff on the inside is very shiny, but I knew that when I bought it and it doesn't bother me.)
If you're wondering about size, I am 5'9" and 148lbs with a small frame and the medium is a very snug fit. Especially the area under the armpits is pretty tight, so size runs a little small.
I would recommend this product.

The material is fairly thin and doesn't come across as of the quality I would expect from Columbia. Also, the material for the pocket also comes across as flimsy.
Secondly, the pictures show orange zips on the blue fleece, but the actual jacket has blue zips. Overall, it looks fairly dull.
The fit is very nice though.
I do not recommend this product.

I like this jacket but the quality if terrible, I have used it a couple of weeks and it already shows signs of worn in the sleeves, the lower back and the sides.
Good fit and warm, BUT terrible quality in the outside!

This was my second Columbia fleece jacket and I understand why it was on sale. The inside is way too flashy and like a previous reviewer said it makes you look like a disco ball. The pattern of the thermal reflective made it look too feminine. Not all thermal reflective is that stupid looking, but this one is. Also the Ebony Blue jacket pictured has an orange zipper, but when I got the jacket it does NOT have the orange zipper. So overall for the price that I paid I excepted a lot more and will be just sticking with their cheaper jackets and keeping my expectations lower.
I do not recommend this product.

I love this fleece, especially the color, I got a blue one. In a sea of North Face fleeces in Boston, this jacket looks distinct and of high quality. It fits very nicely but it does seem to run a bit small. I gotta admit the inside part is very shiny, it's a bit distracting but other than that this product is amazing. S
I would recommend this product.

This jacket keeps you warm pretty well and it looks good on me. The inside is nice and shiny too if you want to have all eyes on you, that will do it! The only thing I don't like about this jacket is that I usually wear the Columbia fleece jackets and they seem way better at being water resistant to me than this one. That said, I think this one looks nicer on me and the extra cloth near the hand holes makes this jacket more comfortable than my other fleece ones. I will be picking up more of these in the future!
I would recommend this product.
