Rated 5 out of 5 by Benton long hoodie Love it I worn it until it really cold.xl January 16, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love, love, love this fleece! This could be the perfect fleece. Longer length & a hood is exactly what every other fleece in my closet has been needing....and trust me, there are several. An added bonus was I found it when it was 50% off makes me love it even more, although I'd probably pay full price for another one if they were available! It might run a bit on the larger side, but that's fine since I always dress in layers during the colder/cooler months. Another top-notch from Columbia for the girls with a little more of us to love...which doesn't mean we don't want quality, cute, warm, technical clothing which suit our active lifestyle! January 15, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice fit, but runs ont he smaller side The sleeves are nice and long, the pockets are great too, but I found it to fun on the small side. Size up unless you prefer a more snug fit. The weight is nice.....not thin and not too thick. I would have liked it to be a bit longer But it's very good quality, not flimsy at all. Whish it came in white too! January 8, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great looking jacket We purchased this jacket as a gift for our daughter in law. We bought a 1X based on the sizing info and it fit perfectly. It seems very well made and warm. She loved it. January 5, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Coat Fits nice love it !! January 3, 2017
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall I'm pleased with my purchase I have the regular short Benton fleece but I wanted a longer one with a hood so I figured this one would be perfect, the one I have is a 2X and it fits well. I ordered this in a 2X and it was a little on the large side but I'm impatient so I will keep it and just wear sweaters under it. It's warm and fits nice as it flatters the waist. December 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Julie H I love this hoodie...the coverage is good, it is comfortable and I like the hood to the jacket. The hoodie runs true to size. I can wear something heavier under it. I order a size larger just because I wanted to make sure that it would fit well. December 16, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lightweight House Coat Surprisingly, it runs a little larger than normal for Columbia. It is cosy and warm. Soft. It would be a nice spring or fall coat outdoors. Or a nice home coat in winter. December 14, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by nice jacket I purchased this jacket in black(best describe as an ashy black). It is really nice. Very warm and comfortable. I love the fact that when zipped all the way up it covers my neck and pockets have zippers as well. Reading most of the reviews had me very confused as far as sizing. Some reviews saying it was too big some saying too small. I usually where xl or 1x. I went ahead and purchase the 2x which is a little big on me I honestly could have went with a 1x. So as far as sizing I would say it fits true to size. November 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for the weather now I enjoy this jacket because the weather is changing and I can wear this now. Just right for the weather now. November 11, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Unflattering cut to get started... Ordered the black, which looks more like a dark gray or faded black. The jacket is not flattering and looks a bit like a sack. Also, the fleece is not soft. It looks cheap and I didn't like anything about it. November 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for the fall This fleece is just like the previous ones. This one is longer and has a hood for breezy days. I love it. October 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this longer version I purchased this for the long days I work outside in the cold. I already have the shorter jacket versions of this heavy fleece, wanted something with a little more coverage. Has not been cold enough in my area yet to wear, I'm sure I will enjoy the extra coverage when it is. October 26, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not for me This was a real miss for me. I found it to be TTS, but that's where the good ends. It's boxy and unflattering, hitting in a super weird place just a bit below my hips - too short to be a long jacket, too long to be a short jacket. Also, it has zero style. So, back it goes, and it's a real drag that you have to pay for your own return shipping - basically with the shipping both ways, i paid almost 20 bucks to try on a dull blob of a jacket. Won't be purchasing directly from Columbia again - not with a million other retailers that have much better shipping and return rates. Highly disappointed. October 21, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not worth the price The picture makes it look like a nice thick jacket. Very thin, nothing to it. Worth about 20 dollars. Very disappointed in the quality. October 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by I like it! I bought this for winter. It isn't heavy fleece so I am hoping it will be warm enough. It is fitted somewhat in the waist area which is flattering and the sleeves are perfect. Not huge at the wrist and length is just right (even when you stretch your arms out). October 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by LOVE this jacket I ordered this as a jacket to wear at one of my jobs as the room I work in is always chilly. It is perfect, nice and warm and a little more coverage than my regular Benton Springs fleece jackets. The fit was a little large on me, but leaves room for sweaters underneath. I will be getting more. October 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Liked this coat alot I only had one issue it was and still is to big for me. My own fault for not returning it for the proper size ( and now I think it's to late) but it's just what I wanted otherwise Shame cause I have lost so much weight since then that now I definitely will never wear it and I really wanted a coat that covered my upper legs January 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great with layers I Love this coat. I wanted something snuggly to wear over winter layers so I bought a size up. It's roomy like I wanted and looks great with boots and fleece leggings. I have literally been wearing it everyday.! December 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Fleece Coat Yet! I am SO HAPPY with this coat. The fleece better quality than others in the same price range. What makes this coat stand out, though, is the cut is very feminine. Not just a bulky blob. I'm a plus-size gal and this coat looks great! I will buy from Columbia from now on! It does run small...so order one size up. December 16, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Runs Large in Size I should have listened to the other reviews but I was scared that something would be "too small" yet again. I checked my ski parka for size and then ordered the same. Not a smart thing to do. This jacket truly runs large. I didn't re-order because I paid so much in shipping to return the jacket I didn't want to risk another one not fitting. I think I would have liked the jacket had it fit. December 9, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Columbia Fleece Jacket This jacket was a HUGE disappointment. Save your money and do not buy this. The fleece was very cheap. The zipper does not function well - it is a constant struggle - actually I have to have my husband zip this up because you basically cannot zip it up yourself. AWFUL! I bought the 1X which usually is very ample for me but I like having a lot of room when I drive. The sleeves are very tight. Poor sizing. December 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very happy with this jacket I live in New Mexico where we get tons of sunshine; nevertheless, the winds here can be extremely cold. We're not in the depths of winter now, where I will need my Columbia down parka, so I needed something in-between, and this fits the bill perfectly. It gives me satisfying warmth and is quite comfortable. Everything is well-made, it's light but seriously warm. I'm totally happy I bought this - and on sale, too! December 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Columbia good I got this on sale because I wouldn't pay for this full price.. that's the brand driving. I do notice the quality of pockets and lining make it far better than other brands - it get 5 star.. we'll see how it wears (pilling, etc). I haven't washed it yet-- bought 2 for gifts as well. December 4, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great buy. Bought for my sister and she loves it! November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this jacket, getting another one It's fleece, its comfortable -- great fall/spring or travel coat. What I love the most is that the pockets have zippers. When I travel I zip my pockets, and don't have to worry about my stuff falling out on the plane when I take my coat off! I wear it so much it is getting a little ratty. I was happy to see they are still selling this, and I ordered a new one! November 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Plus size runs large I ordered the 3X based on my measurements and the recommendation that it runs small, but it was basically a shapeless tent. I returned it and bought a 2X. The 2X is still a bit loose, but that is ok, as I'll be able to wear it over bulkier sweaters and sweatshirts. I am glad I purchased a smaller size, as this jacket is very warm and cozy. November 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just buy it! No regrets! I don't go anywhere without this hoodie now. THE best hoodie I ever had. Thought at first it was an odd material, but WOW, it comes out soft, and works well in the elements. Rain was beading off and it is quite wind resistant for a fabric hoodie. Nice and long and being able to unzip from the bottom works really well when you are driving. November 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it, I'm going to order another color... It's my go-to jacket. November 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly Recommended This jackets runs a little small however its very comfortable ! Highly recommend this product October 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice length The note that is fits slightly small is misleading at least for me - I don't like things to be too tight and usually wear 1x-2x. So I ordered the 3x and was just swimming in it - returned it for the 2x and would say it is still a bit large but I want to be able to layer so I'm keeping it. Really like the length and the pockets are zippered plus the zipped front is a 2 way zipper - always a nice feature. Pairing it with the Arcadia™ II Jacket it will make a nice cozy couple :) October 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by nice fleece jacket, keeps you warm and reasonable price bought it on sale. October 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great fleece jacket/sweater Was happy to finally find a longer fleece sweater/jacket to cover the bum area....in plus sizes - yay!! It arrived quite quickly and I've had the chance to use it already, being on the East Coast (Nova Scotia#. It's quite warm, long enough, and I like the hood too. I find the pockets are well done, the right height for my hands to rest. I think it runs true to size, I'm mostly a 2X, I probably could have gone down to a 1X, but I didn't want it too snug, it's fairly loose right now, thus allowing for a sweater underneath later on. I do find I can feel the cold if it's windy, but I'm fine with that as I was wanting a touch lighter fleece, and was only wearing a tshirt underneath. I can see wearing this for all the fall weather #every day walking the dog at minimum), and I'm looking forward to using it as a layer underneath the mighty light jacket for even longer wear. Extremely pleased with quality of clothing, in plus sizes. Plus size folks are active too!! September 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cozy This coat is so cozy and true to size. I like the length too. The fleece seems like excellent quality. I will be wearing this for years. September 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything I Hoped For! I was excited to receive this fleece and give it a try. First off, the sizing is true to the size chart provided on the website. That was a major plus in my books! The cut is so flattering, very slimming :) I am 5'10" and the sleeves were plenty long enough. The hood and high collar are a nice bonus. I am looking forward to the cooler weather so I can wear this as a fall/spring coat. Love it! Great sale price too. September 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect length Finally a Hoodie that is long enough! Absolutely love it! Once I realized you had to hold the long zipper at the bottom to zip, I was set to go. August 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Jacket!! I needed something to grab running out the door to do errands & such that was warm soft & durable. This is PERFECT!!! So soft!! Covers down to the lower hips & lightweight BUT very warm!! I'm buying another one!! August 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great hoodie! I bought this hoodie to layer under my spring/fall jacket and it's perfect for that purpose. I love that it's long and bum covering for extra warmth. Its not super thick, so overall I wouldn't say it's the best quality fleece I've ever bought. I managed to get it at a great sale price so I'm definitely satisfied given how much I paid. I may be a little let down if I had paid full price for it though. One improvement I'd love to see in future versions: slightly narrower wrists...maybe with with thumb holes. August 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lived in this last winter Wore this for early morning walks, weekly hikes, or just when I wanted the feel of a comfy "blankey". Pockets big enough for water bottle and snacks. Would buy another one this year if it came out in that nice blue-purple color I saw in the regular sizes. July 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful yet functional I got this to have a white fleece jacket that was long enough to cover the hips and keep the lower body warm without adding a lot of weight. Coat is unlined fleece but the warmth is spectacular. The hood is attached in such a way that it actually looks feminine instead of masculine like most hoodies do. It drapes nicely. I would buy this again at full price and I would love to have one in black if it ever comes available again. March 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's a really nice jacket! I was curious about the longer version of their fleece jacket- plus I love the idea of a hood so I thought I would try this longer jacket. I LOVE IT. It fits well, is cozy and it even has a two way zipper so when you sit down you can unzip the bottom a little if you wish. The only thing I noticed about these new jackets I bought from Columbia is the fleece isn't quite as soft, thick and snuggly as it once was. It seems to be a little thinner and stiffer.. but it might soften with washings, too. Overall I am pleased with the products and will buy again. I would buy this long hoodie again if it came in other colors, absolutely. I'll keep an eye out for it next season. February 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I purchased this jacket for myself and I loved it! Excellent quality, fits true to size, and can be worn in mild to moderately cold weather. It can also be layered. I wanted to order one for my mom today, but the color I wanted was sold out. I guess everyone else also liked it! December 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I read the other reviews and ordered a size up. Fits perfectly. I love the color and the longer length. This is my weekend "go to". December 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect It was exactly what I was looking for. Wanted a fleece jacket that was longer and this fit the bill. Comfortable and feminine. December 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good fleece This coat runs a bit small. I wear an XL women's shirt and this just fits in a 1X. The coat itself is fitted to the body. I like how it covers my bum and has a hood. Great for layering or by itself on cool days. The fleece is not heavy or thick and will not block the wind. It is more comfy and soft. December 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Buy I bought this jacket for my daughter and she loves it. She wears it all the time. November 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent ! Great jacket order up a size if you like a less fitted fit. November 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best fleece ever I have a long torso and large chest it is a pain to find a jacket that does not ride up on me, and i finally found 1 the material is super soft and warm the fit is a bit loose but i prefer it that way so i can layer. I highly recommend this fleece. October 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Length was just what I needed! Really like the length and warmth of this jacket...makes a good liner for my Pardon my trench Jacket as well! Soft, pretty, plenty of room! October 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fleece! This is a great fleece. I feel it runs a little small and may be a little thinner than what I was expecting. I love the long length and the hood giving it a more modern look than your standard fleece. Overall I love this jacket and would recommend it to anyone! October 9, 2014
