I bought this jacket because they say it is lined, so I figured lined is good right? What it does not say is the the lining is in the hood only.
This jacket is going back!
I would recommend this product.

Love this jacket! I have 2 other regular fleece Columbia jackets and I wear them a lot. What I LOVE about this jacket is that it a dressier version! It is a little longer length, has regular sleeves (no elastic at the wrists), and is more stylish than the regular jacket. I am not a fan of hoods, but this one is nice. Love this jacket!
I would recommend this product.

Very nice variation of an already great product. The extra length is perfect for chilly evenings. The fleece content is perfect, this is a high quality jacket which will get lots of use. As soon as I got it, my daughter had me order the same jacket for her.
I would recommend this product.

These coats were given as gifts. The recipients have received so much enjoyment. We did have to buy much larger sizes as they do run small. The longer length is a plus. Please keep these in your product line.

I bought this as winter coat for in Texas and it works just fine for our winters. It runs true to size so next time I will order the size I wear now and not the size larger like everyone recommends. I can wear my balky sweaters and stuff under this one so that is a plus. It is well made and I have other Columbia products and have had no problems with them.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this jacket with high expectations. I liked the length and what appeared to be a figure flattering cut at the waist. Unfortunately when I received it I found that I can only wear the jacket with a t-shirt. The jacket is too small to wear over anything with long sleeves. The arms seem to run slim to me. Additionally the "cut-in" waist made it bell out akwardly at the bottom...it did not lay down but stuck out at points at my hips. This gave it a strange look. I don't think that ordering a size up would help the situation because it would be too big everywhere else.
I do not recommend this product.

I bought the sea salt color. It goes with anything, dress pants or yoga pants! I bought a bigger size than I normally do just to make sure it would fit and to be on the more comfy side. I plan on buying the charcoal heather and black. Possibly the beet also. In the picture of the sea salt, it appears like it has a bit of grey tint to the fleece and also zipper....it's not, it is all cream except for the columbia logo. I would have actually liked to have the real light grey color but I still love the cream. As for 4 stars only on the quality, it is a bit on the thin side so for the sea salt, if you are wearing a dark color shirt underneath, you will see that a little come through. Won't have to worry with the darker colors but the fleece is thin. I love that it is longer!
I would recommend this product.

This is a great jacket! I was impressed with the overall quality. One thing that really stood out for me is the fleece. I was expecting something a little lighter, but was pleasantly surprised to find how thick it was making it oh so cozy and warm!

While it would be warm enough for football games, the sleeves are flared and makes it drafty and defeats the purpose of the warmth, the style is more suitable for lightweight not too serious colder weather with the flared sleeves, it hang like a bathrobe and while comfortable and yummy wouldnt wear it out of the house
I do not recommend this product.

This hooded fleece is nice and long, like a parka. The hood is lined but not the body. It runs big, sleeves are so long I'll have to hem them and very generous in the body, but that can be good for layering. ( I am 5'7" so if you are petite, this will be big)
I would recommend this product.

I ordered this in a size larger than I normally wear based on what I read in other people's reviews. It does run small as the larger size fits me fine, I LOVE this sweatshirt, it looks dressy enough to wear to go shopping, I ordered it to wear on the farm for outside work. Too nice for farm use!
I would recommend this product.

The hoodie is very comfortable and is pretty true to size. The only thing I would change would be the actual hood, it seems a bit large as it kept going over my eyes, however the coziness of the jacket outweighs the hood size.
I would recommend this product.

I was looking for a coat that was heavier than a sweatshirt, or hoodie. I wanted one that zipped all the way down and had a hood. I also needed a little bigger size around. This coat has all of that. I love the feel of this coat, BUT I wish it would have come in a petite size. The coat covers my booty.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this jacket in hopes of replacing my bulky winter coat with something warm and not quite as bulky. This looked like it would be the perfect option.
When I received the jacket, I loved the fit of it. The length was perfect. I have a rather long torso and this went down to my hips. It has deep pockets with zippers and the hood is big and does not fall off my head when I wear it.
The only disappointing thing about it is that the fleece is not as warm and dense as I thought it was going to be. Holding it up to light, I can see light through the fabric. It is not nearly as warm as I had hoped. I can't replace my bulky winter coat- but I can wear my fleece with a sweater under it to make up for the difference. I would really love to see this jacket lined with another layer of fleece or fluffy material to give it some subtance.
I would recommend this product.
