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.

seems to run slightly small, just went up one size. able to layer comfortably underneath. only true disappointment was the length. Seems short. would of liked it to be longer, runs slightly below waistline or top belt line of pants
I would recommend this product.

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 would recommend this product.

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!
I would recommend this product.

Jacket was given as a gift.
Receiver was very pleased with the light weight, the color and ease in carrying for product. I
guessed correctly in getting one size larger.

I bought this because I wanted something warm that wasn't big and bulky.... And this does the job!!! I am a steady 2X, but after reading the reviews I ordered a 3X and it's perfect! It fits very nicely, the elastic around the sleeves is nice and the zip-up pockets are very convenient! I also love how the elastic around the bottom of the jacket can be adjusted to size!! My only complaint would be that it could stand to be a couple inches longer. It's a tad bit short, but overall, the color is beautiful and the jacket is just what I was looking for!
I would recommend this product.

I bought mine in black. I am a fairly tall woman, about 5'10" - the sleeves are long enough and the overall fleece length is good. This fleece gives me the warmth I need for beginning of fall. I like to wear it under a rain jacket for extra warmth sometimes. The quality is good. The shipping time was good, too.
I would recommend this product.

This is my fifth Benton Springs jacket and they are always a good deal and in such beautiful colors. I am normally an XL, but in Columbia I need the next size up. The new purple color is luscious!
