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!
I would recommend this product.

I am so thrilled that I ordered this jacket!!! I read a lot of the reviews and went ahead and ordered the 3X even though I'm pretty much happy in 2Xs. This jacket fit perfectly! I love, love, LOVE it! I thought I wanted a North Face, but being larger, they had such a limited selection and nothing in cute colors. Hey, just because I'm large doesn't mean I only want to wear black or navy. Yuck. Anyway, I ordered the "groovy pink" and its absolutely gorgeous. I plan on ordering other colors very soon.
The fit is wonderful. I'm a solid 20-22, but this 3X feels like it was custom made for me. It is a little shorter than I normally wear, but it did not cut me in a way that made me uncomfortable at all. It cuts below my hip area, but not down to my thighs. The sleeves are great. Maybe a tad long, but when I raise my arms, I am not halfway exposed down my arm.
I adore the soft fabric. It is warm and snuggly. Obviously since it is August, I've not had the chance to wear it in the cold, however, I'm usually the one with no coat on because I hate "bulky!" This is not bulky at all.
I am looking forward to ordering more in other colors. You simply can not beat the $40 price. Who needs the "other" brands. This is a Great Coat!!!!
I would recommend this product.

I read reviews regarding these types of jackets prior to buying. I had read that it ran a little small, so I ordered a size larger than I normally would. I'm glad I did, because what I got fits a little roomy due to me ordering a size up. I wanted this to wear over layers on an Ireland vacation. For me it's perfect.
I would recommend this product.

I love the Columbia Fleece Jackets...although I found this one to be a little snug. I will wear it but I prefer them less fitting. I wish there was more of a color selection in the longer length fleece . I love the color and it is good quality as usual.
I would recommend this product.

I LOVE my Columbia Benton Springs Full-Zipper jackets! I live in Louisiana, our weather changes continually from October through April and the fleece Columbia uses is perfect, warm and snuggly on our coldest days but somehow not overly hot when the temperatures rise during the day. I have probably six of these identical jackets and try to buy a new one every year! The fit seems perfect for me, I'm pleased with the fabric and workmanship, and I love being able to wash/dry them. I also love the colors - I wish I had one in every color!
One little hint to share! Recently my oldest jacket scared me - I washed and dried it in the dryer and the zipper didn't seem right. I put one drop of WD-40 in the zipper clasp using a Q-tip and it started working better than ever. That jacket is no telling how old and has been washed repeatedly - it seems to get better the older it gets!
I honestly love these jackets - I don't know of anything I wear that I enjoy more! My daughter loves hers so much she'll slip one on early in the morning to wake-up with a cup of coffee - like a mini security blanket/robe!
Reading further in the review questionnaire prompted another consideration in my personal preference for Columbia's Benton Springs jacket - I am not really a professional thrill seeker but I am outside virtually 365 days every year walking my dog. I wish Columbia would produce a line of dog apparel!!
I would recommend this product.

Hey, the quality is great! My beef is with the color - "Columbia Navy" is a really putrid shade of blue. It is NOT NAVY!!!! So, I will spend $10 at my expense to return this item. Lesson learned universe!
I do not recommend this product.

Great Jacket. Shipping was excellent. I ordered it one day and it was at my home in 2 days. I am glad I ordered a size bigger because I think it would have been small otherwise.

I have had 6 or 7 of these jackets over the past few years and they have been very nice for the "cold" days in the south! They're lightweight yet warm.
The only complaint I have is that the inside of a couple of them started to "pill" after several washings and it made them uncomfortable to wear with a short sleeve shirt.
I would recommend this product.

I couldn't find a red jacket in my area so I ordered one from you. I have four of these jackets now and love to wear them. They are very soft and warm. They fit well and seem to be true to size.

This is the first fleece jacket I have owned. I love it! It is soft and comfortable and above all else, is very warm. Length for me is great as I am short. Often a plus size top will be too long but this jacket is just right. Very pleased with the fleece.
I would recommend this product.
