Women’s Benton Springs™ Long Hoodie 4.2 5 98 98
This product has great features. I like the extra long sleeves. I have very long arms and always struggled with this. I love the extra long length as this keeps my behind warm too. I like the neck collar that is high and wide enough for a scarf to fit underneath. And I liked the large hood as well. A ski cap fits nicely inside. This jacket is perfect standing alone but is also great for layering. The pockets are deep and useable. It is soft and stylish. I like the tapered look. Really, it is perfect. January 27, 2014
Hoodie Wonderful fleece that severs the purpose of keeping me warm and to me, that is all that is important. January 23, 2014
Nice jacket My only issue with this jacket is the sleeve length. I usually wear petites and there was no option for short length sleeves or a petite cut. I don't like the rolled up sleeve look. The sleeves do not have any kind of elastic or adjustment and they flare at the ends so I only wear it around the house. I guess I should have noticed the sleeve issue prior to ordering. Otherwise, I love the jacket length, fit and color. January 9, 2014
Great fit for tall and lanky The sleeves, length and hoodie are great for me. I'm 6' tall and have trouble finding clothes that are long enough in the arms and waist, this is a comfortable long fit. The hoodie is larger than most others I've tried. I can finally wear my hair back in a bun and still comfortably have this hood over my head to keep warm. December 28, 2013
My Long Hoodie I brought the purple long hoodie for a class I'm taking in San Rafael, CA. It was delivered to the hotel and I wore it three days in a row. Then I left it in the hotel lobby and someone must have needed it more than me. I haven't seen it since. I still miss it!! December 21, 2013
Love this coat I have had many columbia coats but I love how warm and functional this one is. December 12, 2013
Nice Hoodie Hoodie fits well. I like the tailored style because it makes me feel sleek and slim. I haven't tried to wear it with a thick sweater underneath, so I am not sure how well that will do. I got the Abyss which is a very, very dark blue. I have remind myself it is blue. I love the length. The size of the hood would work well if I had on a hat or "fat" hair. It could be a little snugger. It is only the thickness of a regular sweatshirt. December 11, 2013
Too tight! I had to return this fleece jacket because it was made too tight and fitted in the back. I am 5'2, 110lbs. The back was so tighe it was uncomfortable with only a shirt underneath. I bought a size med. The sleeves were about 4" too long but they didn't have petite sizes I expected this and was prepared to shorten sleeves. The good parts were that it was long and warm. December 10, 2013
Length I really like this product, I am tall and must say the length is perfect, it is a great jacket for on the go, I have worn it with a long sleeve tee and must say I stayed very warmI am going to order another one in a different color December 6, 2013
Made for tall people Quality is great, however the design isn't . The sleeves run way too long and the arm holes are tight in the bicep area.I am 5'5 and wear a 12-14.This is made for the tall and thin.I wish it didn't have a hood, and had a drawstring at the waist. December 5, 2013
This product is great The hoodie is extremely light and very comfortable. Sleeves run a little long as does the fleece. The sleeves are wider at the end and not fitted. December 2, 2013
this product is great size runs a little bit bigger December 1, 2013
I love the way this hoodie zips up around your neck to keep out the cold! This garment is soft and the fitted longer length keeps the cold out. November 19, 2013
Oops too small The quality of the jacket was great as is all my Columbia coats and vests. However I had to return it because it was too small. I ordered a medium because I have both medium and large Columbia in my closet. But this medium was so tight that I'm not sure if even a large would fit comfortably. So I didn't reorder because I'm already out original shipping charges and return shipping charges. Make sure you order plenty big enough. FYI: the sleeve length is long. November 18, 2013
Excellent grab and go jacket This is an excellent jacket that you can wear anywhere. Lightweight, breathable, and comfortable. November 14, 2013
Disappointed As far as the fit of the jacket, it is great! I really like the length of the jacket itself and the bell sleeves. But I thought it would be warmer because it is micro fleece. It's good for cool weather not cold. The most disappointing thing was the price. I thought I was getting a good deal. Reg. price $75 for $50 + shipping. I went to Academy Sports in the town I live and it was the same price.....so I paid more because of the shipping. Bummed! :( November 12, 2013
White for safety Bought this so that I'd stand out in the dark. While not a windbreaker like Polartec with a long-sleeved shirt on it seemed warm. November 11, 2013
Sleeves are long Extra large size fits true, but the sleeves are really long, I need to roll them up twice6 inches November 10, 2013
I LOVE IT IT'S FITS ME ....IT'S WHAT I NEEDED ...THE SLEEVES ARE A LITTLE LONG BUT I ACTUALLY LIKE IT.. November 8, 2013
Weird Hood, not quite as expected Was soo excited to see a fleece with a hood and a long length, been wanting one forever. However, was disappointed in what I received. The hood is bulky and was not functional. The back part of the hood is somewhat pointed and as a result drops down over most of my face. It is attached in a weird way so that if its not up, it doesn't lay right around the collar. Sleeves hit mid hand which I like and loved the length. The hood is just too odd so may be sending it back. Also the Black is not a true black color..more charcoal grey. Try again Columbia and I will buy in every color!! November 7, 2013
A little disappointed First, the good: this hoodie is cute and snuggly, and I like the longer length. It looks good on me. But as others have said, it does run small. I ordered XL, which should have been plenty big for me, but if I'm wearing a top that's at all heavy, I can't comfortably get the hoodie on over it. So I'll only be able to layer it over a lightweight top, like a T-shirt. Also, I'm not crazy about the too-long flared sleeves. I'm keeping it, but I probably won't get as much wear out of it as I'd hoped. I would recommend this to others as long as you order up a size or two, or if you don't plan to wear a lot of layers under it. November 6, 2013
Not as nice as I had hoped, but acceptable for cost This jacket is not as nice as I had hoped, but it was relatively inexpensive, so I did not return it.Issue 1) the sleeve openings are very wide, perhaps it is an intentional 'bell' styling, but there is a lot of room for cold air to get inside. I live in AZ and this is not needed for long hours outside in REALLY cold weather, so it is ok for me, but may not be for everyone.Issue 2) there is a really strong unpleasant chemical odor from the material lining the hood. I have washed it 4 times already and the odor is now faint, but still there. And the interior of the fleece that the majority of the coat is made of looks very worn already, after just 4 washings.Size wise - the large is a true large - I usually wear size 10, and this will be very roomy for large sweaters underneath. November 5, 2013
Great Jacket very versatile jacket - love it!! November 3, 2013
So comfy, sleeves just too long I love all your clothing but the sleeves are always soooo long is annoying.. November 1, 2013
In Love I think the fit is perfect. It's slimming, the hood is perfect, the sleeves are long but it's not anything to complain about. I have 3 already and plan on getting more. I wear them in place of a heavy bulky coat and it keeps me warm. November 1, 2013
much more stylish than the average fleece I'm very happy with my new fleece. It is much more stylish than the average fleece and because it's longer, I think it ends up being warmer.I'm 5"7 and I ordered an extra small so that it would be a bit more fitted. It's still not tight, but the sleeves are slightly short on me and the shoulders pull a little -- so I suppose I really should wear a small, but I still prefer the fittedness.My only problem has been that when I first wore the fleece, the zipper came undone from the bottom (like how broken zippers do). I was able to unzip and rezip the fleece properly and it hasn't happened since then. I hope it doesn't happen again.Otherwise I definitely recommend this fleece for someone looking for something warm, with a hood, and also feminine and stylish. October 21, 2013
Colors need more description Love the fit, the longer style and lined hood. Wasn't sure about the purple color (Quill?) but bought it anyway...not thrilled with it but will wear for limited use. I wish I had gotten a different color. It's very hard to tell from the images what the colors truly look like and there is no description. Abyss - is that dark blue? Descriptors would be helpful.

Warm, Soft, and So Cute! I live in yoga/workout leggings. I have been looking for a longer fleece to provide some coverage when I'm running errands and walking my dog to keep me warm during the cooler seasons. Up until now, I have been stealing my boyfriend's fleece jacket because it's long and covers my backside. He always asks for it back, so I knew it was time for me to get my own! If I got my correct size, the jacket was always short and boxy (size small) and if I got it oversized, I would get the length but it would look sloppy all over. Until I found this jacket! Not only does it have the hoodie and zippered sleeves, but it has so much style! Columbia of all brands... I thought it was a no nonsense brand geared on performance wear - but wow did they get the fashion part right on this one!!!!I love the length! I am very petite - only 5'1" so this hits me mid thigh in a size small. The fleece is sooooo soft and cozy - I never want to take it off! It also makes my waist look tiny, I look slimmer overall, and actually it lengthens my body because of the way it was cut! Oh and the added bell sleeves... so darling. The ultimate girly fleece that doesn't skimp on quality at all! Please always carry this unique style and hopefully add pink to the lineup of colors. LOVE! October 9, 2013
Benton Springs Long Hoodie I really like this product but was disappointed that it wasn't lined . The hood is lined but the entire jacket was not. I feel it would go on better if it was lined. The style is exactly what I wanted and the fit is great.... For the price I feel it should be lined... October 3, 2013
Looking Good This fleece has real style. I read all the reviews, some saying it fits small, others complaining about the flared sleeves and the fact that the hood has no drawstring. I didn't buy it for the hood but when fully zipped the hood makes the nicest neckline. It's a style jacket rather than a work jacket. I think it's adorable and love it. September 30, 2013
Decent I think the size runs a little large, don't care for the bell shaped sleeves or the neck line. It surprisingly kept me dry in the rain and is warm. It's a decent hoodie, but I wouldn't go out of my way to buy another one. September 3, 2013
My new dog walking hoodie. I love my new hoodie. It's toasty and I can wear it on foggy San Francisco mornings when I walk the dog.I love the zippered pockets and I love that it's long and covers my back side. Very comforting. August 23, 2013
Absolulety perfect!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you Columbia for FINALLY creating a product that correctly fits a taller woman!!! I am 5ft 11.5 inches tall, and could never wear Columbia products for woman in my normal size Large because they were just too short in the body, and the sleeves. I would literally have to buy an XXL just so my back and wrists wouldn't be exposed when I sat or bent over, which was obviously way too big for me, and looked sloppy. And, I found it hard to believe that Columbia did not offer a tall line of clothing for women when all of their competitors did. I LOVE this fleece!!! It's long in the body, long in the sleeves, and it is flattering. A size Large fits me perfectly, and I am able to wear a t shirt underneath. If you're tall, and have some curves like me, then this is the fleece for you!!! August 12, 2013
has ok features Opionion is still out... it is longer than what I really wanted, and there is no draw string around hood. I will probably keep the item to have on hand if needed, but not happy. June 27, 2013
Long Armed Lady This hoodie is long to begin with and the sleeves are longer than the body. I had my sleeves hemmed up a bit and a little taken out of the sleeves (too much room). Overall very nice quality, just had to do some adjustments. April 30, 2013
Too light, sleeves too long I didn't think the best when I saw how thing the material is. When I tried it on I thought it was the wrong size...it's really big! April 11, 2013
My Columbia Fleece is the best I am So Happy with my columbia Fleece , the size is a little big for medium but still looks great , I am a landscaper and allways working at the outside , it fills warm, cozy ..I recomend it absolutely April 4, 2013
Fits Large bought it post Baby# 3 for the spring. As per measurements provided I ordered an XL and inspite of being a large woman, I found it fits loose. Love the pockets and length but do not like the sleeve lenght. I am 5'2 and the sleeves are way to long. Need to get hemmed otherwise its perfect. April 1, 2013
Terrible Fit I have several Benton Springs fleece short jackets and love the fit and comfort. I fell in love when I first saw this jacket--with the plum color, the hoodie and the longer length. SO disappointed! I can't imagine who this coat is made for. Not only is the body much tighter than the short jacket, the sleeves are terribly tight and 6 inches longer than my fingertips. SO disappointed! MUST return! March 27, 2013
Cute and functional! I bought this as a little treat for myself. It's tapered fit is so classy, and the soft fleece and cuddly hood are very functional. I usually just wear this around the house to keep warm, but it's fitted enough to be dressy with a pair of nice jeans and tall boots. I would def buy again in another color or as a gift for someone. March 26, 2013
Very odd fit I really want a longer version of the full zip, but this item had to go back. The color was fine, and the fit was okay through the body (I sized up, having read the reviews), but the sleeves were very tight and way too long. I don't have large arms so I wasn't the problem. There was also no way to adjust the hood or fasten it, so that was a useless appendage. Hope you try again. March 25, 2013
not cozie I have a few Columbia fleece. I love the tight wrists and especially the thumb whole. This fleece had bell bottom sleeves. The wind could go right up the sleeve. Not what I want when I wear a fleece. March 24, 2013
love the product for its style and wearability the only issue I have is the armholes are too snug to fit much underneath the fleece jacket. I tried on a size larger and that was just too big. March 18, 2013
love the style and fit I could only give this a good rating because even though the style, fit and workmanship were excellent, the material is poor quality. I was expecting polar fleece. Some reviews I read, before purchasing, said they didn't like the material either but I decided to order anyway because I did like the style. Now I know what they meant. I still kept the jacket. March 12, 2013
love the fit and the hood Love columbia you can keep warm with a very ilghtweight coat with omni tech do not like bulky love warmth March 10, 2013
Love this sweet fleece jacket! I am about 5'6", 130 lbs and bought a size small, it's perfect for me. It is longer than most jackets and has a slim fit giving it a very feminine look. Really like it! Very soft and lovely. March 10, 2013
Love the lined hood I like the longer length, nice pockets, easy to use zipper. The sleeve length is too long, but I rolled the sleeves and it looks fine. Good buy for the price. March 5, 2013
Flattering but not so warm Bought 2 of these Benton Springs Women's Long Hoodies - one for myself and one for my daughter. Love the shape- except for the bell like sleeves; which are 'extra long' as in other reviews - which really let the cold air in. I think that it is much more stylish than other similar fleece jackets, or 'sweatshirt' hoodies. This 'hoodie' is a light weight fleece. It has two roomy zip pockets - not huge but very useable. The hood is lined with silky fabric. The zip up creates a stand up collar , and the hood somehow stays folded up on itself, for the most part; so if you were to neglect to use it at the first drizzle, it will not be soaked on the inside. The hood is too big for me really and there is no way to tighten it up. The overall length is long . Sleeves and hem come down past my butt to my thighs at the point where my fingers reach with my arms at my sides. Definitely covers the gap area that we sometimes have with modern low cut pants, although it will not really be long enough to sit on the jacket and keep your pants protected. I am about 5'3", 115 lbs and bought a size Medium for myself. This gives me a loose fit with plenty of room for bulky layers. I could surely fit into a small, I think. The gap of the bell shaped sleeves does bug me, and I am considering ways to personalize the fit at the wrists. Perhaps some sort of velcro would be easiest for me, as I used to have a raincoat with adjustible cuffs, and this might do the trick. Actual sewing might work ( without cutting) to just add a sort of dart to take up the extra fabric. Overall plan to keep them, and enjoy looking more feminine. February 26, 2013
seems to b a nice product, but to big after reviews said it ran small i was so excited to get this in the mail, i read all the reviews before i bought and they said this jacket ran small so i bought a large, well guess what its to BIG, so now i have to return it, wish i had just ordered my reg. size instead of listening to all the reviews, such a hassle, not sure if i should reorder a smaller size...think i will stick to buying in the stores....thanks February 23, 2013
This hoodie is cut like a dress coat. Love this hoodie! It runs a little small, but is a beautiful fit.It's just the right weight and easy to laundry. February 17, 2013
