Slightly bulkier than I expected, but still acceptable. Good mid weight, nice fit and love the longer length. It will be good for running errands, but not useful for travel as it takes up too much room. Bought it in a different color than that shown above in a lovely soft red.
I would recommend this product.

I have made several Columbia purchases within the last month and this was my least favorite. The arms are very baggie, the hood is over-sized and It is too bulky to use for layering under a coat or jacket. The body fit well and the length is good as it covers all your "lady lumps". It is a soft thicker fleece, but not the greatest quality. Good for women with larger hips as it allows for space and coverage.
I do not recommend this product.

When I saw the lining in the hood of the picture I expected the entire jacket to be lined. It isn't and very light weight fleece. Would only be able to use in spring and early fall. Good construction.
Had to order up a size from normal coats I wear, but ordered the size stated to my measurements on fit guide.
I will be sending back as I way expecting something heavier for later fall early winter.
I do not recommend this product.

The color Quill is great. I would not recommend this jacket for short women. I am 5'1". The hood is too large. The sleeves are 3" too long. The sleeves should have elastic around the wrist. The jacket is too long for a woman my height. And yet, the XL in regular women's is a little snug.
I do not recommend this product.

I love this jacket, it is very comfortable and soft. The size is perfect, a little longer than most fleece jackets which I like and I love having a hood. It fits my figure well. Love it!

The length is Perfect, the jacket compliments my figure. I'm a plus size girl and I don't want to look bigger in a jacket so this jacket did the job. I completely love it. The size was a little bigger than what I expected it to be but it's great because I could put warm sweaters underneath.

The look and fit is great. In fact I'm going to order another one in a different color. The color, which I got is Quill and it's just beautiful. It's a great look in the longer length. I couldn't be happier.
I would recommend this product.

This is a very average jacket, no special features just ok. It looks alright but lacks the weight to hang right would like a lining.

I purchased a fleece jacket at Kohls. It was thin and the fleece was not a very good quality. I was so happy when I received the Columbia Fleece Jacket. It was thick, warm fleece and very High Quality in my opinion.
I know were I will go for quality merchandise next time.
I would recommend this product.

I was not impressed by this jacket. I'm actually returning it. The texture of the fleece is weird and it is not as long in the arms as I would like. I have really long arms, so I got really excited when other reviewers said that the arms were really long. Not impressed.
I do not recommend this product.

The bark is a nice color which is why I ordered this jacket. I take a 2X in the Benton vests as I like it to fit loose but ordered this jacket in a 3X so I could wear a sweater underneath. It was enormous so I'm sending it back. Also did not care for the large hood or the overall look.
I do not recommend this product.

I purchased the garment, because I loved the color and shape online.
When receiving the garment however I was disapointed in the material quality. The fleece felt quite rough (might have soften after washing though)
The hood was really long and looked like it might have been intended to be worn with a helmet. Not something that I was going to use it for. The fit might be okay for a person of average height and 'apple' shape, personally I am taller than average and found the sleeves to short and wide in the opening on myself.
I do not recommend this product.

I purchased this so I would have a larger jacket to take camping. I have normal size 16 measurements well in proportion. I'm not sure if the sleeves were sewn this way in error or what but they are extremely flared towards the wrists and extremely bulky at the armpit. I wouldn't wear this if it were free.
I do not recommend this product.

Needed a long warm jacket to get me through the winter, and an Alaskan cruise I am taking later this year. Love the color (red) and the length of this jacket.
2 things would make it perfect.
First the hood while nice to have is way too big. I could fit 2 heads in that thing when I pull it on. If I pull it all the way forward, I can't see anything but the floor in front of me.
Second the jacket is bulky looking. Maybe adding some detail to the waist area to pull it in toward the body just a bit would make it more stylish looking and fitting.
Even with all this I would buy this coat again. I am working on losing quite a bit of weight and know that this coat may be way to big for me come next winter. I hope that it is still available next time for me to purchase again next winter.
I would recommend this product.

I'm a large lady and this jacket fit's awesome. the only real complaint I have is that the description says it's lined. It's not. It is a very thin (very soft) fleece and the wind goes right through it. I'll wear it alot of shopping and such, but I had hoped it would be good for baseball and football. It won't
I would recommend this product.
