I ordered this 2 sizes bigger than I needed and the sleeves are still too short. Columbia Should consider doing "Tall" sizing along with plus sizes. Other than that I love this product. I would recommend.

Would be nice if your women's sizes were the same size as men's 2 and 3x..women's 2-3x runs to small..I love the fleece type jackets they are just to small..and men's are perfect, just not many colors to choose from..if in the future u guys make women's larger please let me know.ty

This jacket it perfect! I wanted something that I can transition from the winter weather of Chicago to Spring. I've worn this jacket in as little as 30+ degree weather. It works for my commute to and from work when I wear it. I tend to get a bit warmer when I'm wearing it.
I would recommend this product.

I've been looking for a jacket to use between seasons. This jacket is close to perfect. It's soft and comfortable and I love the color (bright rose). It was a little windy yesterday and I could feel the cold air, but it wasn't enough to complain about. Aside from the windy day, the fleece has kept me warm. Very glad I made this purchase.
I would recommend this product.

I'm 5'3 and 169 lbs. From the reviews saying it runs a little small, I ordered a 2X. It is too large for me, but, decided to keep it anyway! I will probably order a size smaller too! Great jacket!
I would recommend this product.

I haven't worn it yet due to a severe boston winter. The purple lotus is as shown and a beatiful color.The sleeves are long which is nice. It's comfortable. I've had columbia fleece jackets previously and they held up well

The jacket was true to size and fits comfortable. I wear it everyday. Only thing I wish that it was a darker black than a off black.

I normally wear a 2xl so when I ordered this item I went up a size to a 3xl. It fit my arms just right but it wasn't long enough. Not for a person with a large bust.
I would recommend this product.

Love this fleece. Fleece is warm and very well made. Love the zip pockets. It holds up very well in this unpredictable Chicago weather. My only complaint is the sleeves are a tad bit shorter than i expected seeing as how the fleece is a 2X. Would definitely recommend and would purchase again.
I would recommend this product.

I haven't worn it yet, quality seems fine. The only thing is I usually wear a 1X and that was extreamly tight but the 2X seems like its way to big.

I am very satisfied with this jacket. I have several of them, in several colors, but needed to replace my white one. (sea salt) I wondered about the sizing after reading some of the other reviews, however, my 'old' jackets were 2X and loose, so I went with that size again and the new jacket fits the same.
I would recommend this product.

Ordered "Charcoal Heather" Benton Springs Fleece Jacket with "hot pink zipper". It has a regular charcoal zipper. It is a gift. Disappointed.
I have ordered from your site before. Quality of product is excellent. Should have included explanation for change in zipper color.
I would recommend this product.

GREAT DEAL AND PRODUCT. FIT PERFECTLY AT FIRST. IT DO GET SMALLER AS YOU WASH IT AND DRY IT A COUPLE TIMES. I WEAR A 3X AND I AM PETITE SO THE SLEEVE ARE A LITTLE LONG BUT IT WILL GET SMALL AS YOU WASH IT AND DRY IT. DON'T OVER DRY IT BECAUSE THE JACKET MATERIAL WILL HAVE A ROUGH AND BURN FEELING.

I now have three Benton Springs jackets in various colors. They are made very well and are of a good weight but I do think they run about one size smaller. I normally get an XL to allow for clothing underneath but I order up one size in this jacket. The first jacket I bought was an XL in Hibiscus Red. It is a great color (a little brighter than I was expecting) and just a little smaller than I like. Having said that, the sleeves are longer than they are on the 1X??? All in all, I love it!
I would recommend this product.

It's just enough to throw on when going shopping or are in and out of indoors...I love all the pockets...(2 inside, 2 outside) I have this in 3 colors...wanted the black (something that would go with almost anything...but it picks up every hair, every piece of lint and shows everything....so carry a lint roller with you..after a few wearings the black looks like I've worn it for a year...the other colors look much better but sadly aren't a neutral go with all...other than that I love this jacket!
