Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely happy with this shirt. I am a very active, small frame, older lady. I purchased this shirt to wear playing Pickleball. I have found that I love wearing this shirt not only to play PB, but anytime. I will be ordering more colors. Thanks Columbia for a high quality shirt! October 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! Very comfortable, light, and stylish. October 24, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love the style and colors! I like to wear these tops for hiking, shopping or just lounging. The colors are fun and the tailored style is flattering. My only disappointment is that I wish the material were a heavier weight especially with colder weather coming. But I guess I'll just throw a vest over it. September 28, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by cute style but weird fit... This half-zip was SO cute when it first arrived and I wore for a weekend trip without washing. It fit perfect. Should have known better - washed in warm water then HUNG to dry, but it still shrunk way up. There is a line across the chest right at the bottom of the zipper that you can't see clearly from the photo - result of the shrinking was that it's now awkwardly right in the middle of my bust instead of comfortably below it. I have always been a medium in Columbia shirts and dresses... would recommend in a larger size, or to never wash it! September 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by so comfortable and fashionable, too! Just received this shirt and am looking forward to the first chilly fall day to take it for a run. The shirt fits very well, the sleeves run somewhat long (which I love because I am tall), AND the upper arms of the shirt are able to accommodate a larger bicept/tri. The fabric just downright feels good, too, the pomegranate color is freaking awesome (fashionable while allowing me to be visible on the trail) and the interior of the zipper is not at all scratchy. Although other reviewers mentioned the seam at the bust a problem for them, the shirt looks great - seam and all - and is not an issue. I plan on ordering this shirt in additional colors - love it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Frown design I'm a huge fan of Columbia clothing. I feel at home in the fabrics and designs. But this design is not so flattering or comfortable. The front horizontal seam creates a frown and sits well above the bust line. The pattern doesn't create any more function for the feminine shape so what's the point? However, the fabric and construction has Columbia's good quality. July 30, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice for someone with smaller chest Similar to another reviewer with a long torso, I found the seam across the bust to be very unflattering. I do have a long, wide torso, low bustline, and often have trouble with empire-like waists. The way the seam arcs up in the middle sort of buckled above my chest. I kept wanting to pull the front of the top down. But the colors and fabric are lovely and I think someone with more "normal" proportions would probably like the top. I really wanted to keep it but it wouldn't have worked for me. Too bad. June 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these shirts! These are very comfortable and very nice looking on. Bought one and then bought several more in different colors. I wear in XS and the fit is just right. Great for golf and stylish to wear anytime. May 24, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Unflattering seams/zipper I'm not sure if I understand why this top received so many positive reviews. There is a seam that cuts right across the bust, and when the zipper is zipped it is looks warped and sticks out at the bottom - not flattering. Maybe this is just because I have a very long torso, but the top fits perfectly elsewhere. A shame, because the material, color, and quality are otherwise great. Unfortunately this one is going back. May 2, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Major shrinkage!! I tried on a large and an extra large. The large fit great and the extra large kind of hung off me so I decided on the large. I wore it once and loved it. Then I washed it (in cold water and low dry). Now it barely fits and is WAY too short. I wear a tank underneath it, but it's so short now that even that doesn't look right. I'm super disappointed that it shrunk THAT much. I wish I had kept the receipt because I would have taken it right back. :-/ I really like the shirt though, so I still recommend it, but buy a much larger size!! March 10, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great Shirt -- Before Wash This product was bought to embroider with my work logo and wear year-round. It fit perfectly upon arrival, but after one wash it shrank significantly. I'm constantly pulling at it to lengthen it and I have a short torso! The seam that is supposed to go under the bust line is also too high. I live in Columbia wear and this is the first negative thing I've had to say about one of their products. This one just isn't the same quality as other Columbia products I have experienced. March 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thumbs Up! I love this jacket. There is a line that crosses the chest so if you are larger I know it would bother someone. However, I sized up (usually wear a medium) and I didn't notice the line until someone who had the same jacket pointed it out. It is true to size but I like these jackets a bit baggy. January 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by NWRunner's Dream I am so happy running in this top. The colors are vibrant and the styling is great. I am shocked that this top fits me so well. I am 5'1" 135#--not much fits me without alterations, but the bust seam of this shirt fits me just under the breasts (where it should!) and the length it just about right--2" under the belly button. (I think it may have shrunk a bit in the first few washings--more to the good for me). Nice mid-weight for North-West winter runs! Thank you! November 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Super comfy! The sweater is very soft and comfortable! The fit runs a bit small, especially in the chest area if you have a larger bust. There is a seam running under the zipper across the bust area that sits a bit high on me, but other than that, I love it! November 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable & Reliable This half-zip is average, but even more comfortable than expected. It would be even better if it were a little longer to be worn with leggins and to be warmer. October 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nurse Super cute, flattering January 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect underlayer This turtleneck zip is made of the comfiest material, is roomy, but not overly big, and perfect for layering. Have already worn it snowboarding, and loved it. January 30, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor quality The seams separated on this item after two wearings and the warranty process was terrible. I do not recommend this item, nor the company that made it. January 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Soft and flattering I've had similar shirts from other manufacturers, but this one has the best fit and the softest fabric, and the green color is lovely. Columbia needs to make this in about a dozen different colors, so I can buy them all. January 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this shirt This shirt is awesome! I did find it a little small for the large size but not enough to where I needed to send it back. This shirt gives more warmth than I thought but it is very light and thin which is nice. January 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fit is awesome I shlould have bought this in every color, its my favorite piece this winter January 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fun colors for a sporty top I like this 1/4 zip t-neck. The only thing I'm not fond of is that there is no cover for the top of the zipper when it is zipped all the way up, so it is a little uncomfortable when worn that way. If you have an undergarment you wish to show off by zipping the zipper down, this is not a problem. December 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Love it! I now have the B/W, turquoise, and plum. December 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very flattering I love this half zip thermal. The arm length is perfect, doesn't ride up and looks great on and under as a layer. LOVE IT. Many thanks to the designer. Hope you have more of this kind of fit. December 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light weight and warm I bought two of these shirts and consider them a great layer for light weight warmth. I usually wear them on top of a tee. They are great layer for wearing around the house, hiking, tennis, being outside. They also pack up well for travel, they take up very little room so good for your carry on bag. A good go to layer. November 17, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Women's Outer Spaced Half Zip I bought the purple (quill) one and the color and design are very nice. It's comfortable and fits great. The only thing that I don't like about it is that it has darts, which are fine if you wear it alone. If you put a sweater over it, you see two lines on your bust where the darts are. November 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cozy soft This top is just what I was looking for! Its not too tight or heavy. I am 5'3" and 126lbs and I bought a small which fits perfect. I love this so much I would love to buy it in other colours. November 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice fabric Runs a bit small for size. I usually take a small shirt/tee but had to get a medium. The top does run a bit long but I am petite. Haven't washed it yet but hoping because the fabric is so nice it will wash and wear well. I like the textured looking color instead of a flat/solid color or a pattern that I will get sick of in a year. I got the black/blue and black/gray ones. October 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love! Love! Love! I love these Columbia shirts. They fit well, go great with everything from casual office wear to the cross county trails. Very comfortable. October 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cozy and Beautiful I live in the great outdoors in Colorado but enjoy the fashion the east coast afforded. This item is the perfect blend of both. So comfortable and washes up so nicely, no pilling. I have every color and will spend most of my winter in Columbia Sportswear. Love, love, love! September 3, 2013
