Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worth it I love how easy this is to put on around the camp or after swimming. It is a little large so it doesn't quite look form flattering if you have curves worth shoping off. But functionality wise... I love it October 6, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Womens Benton Springs Hoodie I received my Benton Hoodie and I was disappointed in the quality and weight of the fleece.The design is good and the hoodie is well made however, I have other Columbia fleece of which I purchased 10 or more years ago and I must say how things have changed. The Fleece is not the quality it used to be. Why? What a shock Expected better and got mediocre. Its going back. September 26, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product was nicely designed Beautifully tailored and snug. Makes you feel as if you are wearing a stylish hug where every you go in it. September 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pockets are too low on the jacket. The primary issue I have with this jacket is the pockets sit lower on the sides and are at the sides of my hips. The pockets themselves add bulk to the hip area and then when I put my hands in the pockets the silhouette is not flattering at all. I am short but have several other Columbia fleece jackets and the pockets on those jackets are near my waist. June 1, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too bulky, not good quality It looks like it will loose it's shape quickly...didn't feel nor look like it was quality May 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Pleased with purchase!! I received my jacket just in time for warmer weather. I love it!. It is a form fitting more tailored type jacket which can be very sliming. It has a different look to it than other fleece jackets because of it's length, which is perfect. I bought it in the purple lotus which is more like a beautiful lavender. My only complaint is that the sleeves are very long. But that's not stoping me from considering getting it in another color. April 17, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Womens Benton Spring long Hoodie Love the jacket. Sleeves are way too long but I will hem them. April 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I Like it Fashion and warmth. Everyone noticed it. March 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the length and warmth. Love the jacket! I would recommend this poduct and have had lots of possitive comments on it. March 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by it's very warm I bought this for my mother, she loves it. She said it is very warm and she loves the way it feels, it fits true to size. February 19, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Returned I was excited to find this item because of the longer length, attached hood and 2-way zip. The photographs on the website suggested that it was made of a thick fleece. However, I was disappointed to discover the poor quality of the fleece. Not only is it thin, I get the impression that it will not wear very well. I am 5' 7", 160, full bust. The Large fit OK, a little snug across the shoulders over a long sleeve turtleneck, but that's common for me. XL was definitely too large. Will be returning. February 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Long Benton Springs A little big around the waist, but it's comfortable for lounging and acceptable to wear running errands. I got the one in grey and it goes with anything I need it to. February 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by good value Great fit, quality material, good value. Plan to get much use out of this jacket. January 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this jacket! This jacket is very soft and very warm. Yet it is weighs almost nothing. I will be ordering more of these! January 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the longer length! Not your standard fleece hoodie. This one is tailored to fit and the below the hip length means it is warm and stylish. January 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Fave! Wish there were more colors! New Fave! So comfy for lounging, running errands, you name it! Longer length is perfect for layering or wearing like a sweatshirt with leggings and boots! Wish there were more colors! January 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the look and Comfort Jacket fits well, is so warm and looks nice on. Love the zipped pockets too January 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I will be living in this!! As a layer or alone this is fast becoming my "go to" apparel. Cozy is the perfect word! The fact that it looks cute is just a bonus. December 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Hoodie, Extremely Comfortable Being that I am 5'8", the medium is the perfect length for me as I am taller for a woman. The feel of the material is awesome and it is very warm and comfortable. It does fit a little large in terms of overall size. This could be due to the type of fit as I normally wear figure fitting clothes. Definitely a must have in your wardrobe. Highly recommend. December 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great quality Love it, very warm and the quality is just right. Great price November 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice but Thin I got this in black. It's more of a charcoal black instead of true black, but it's nice. I usually wear size medium in tops but I sized up and got the large. Love the fit and style of this hoodie. Sweaters fit perfectly underneath. It is soft and I like that the pockets zip shut. However, the fleece is very thin and it's not warm at all. Regular cotton hoodies are warmer than this. Overall, comfortable, cute, good to wear under a coat or over a warm sweater. November 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by favorite fall jacket Love that this jacket is long, perfect for fall weather in OH. During winter weather i wear it under a coat, fits really nice because it's warm and not bulky. I'm 5'5" and 118lbs, and ordered the Small, fits perfect, with a room for a sweater under it. Definitely recommends. November 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it so cozy! I ordered 2 in a medium. I'm 5'1" 135 and chesty. The fit is great not too tight not too loose. Love that it has a hood. The black and pink are just as pictured. It's nice and warm and will be perfect to layer under my coat in the freezing cold. November 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice cozy jacket The jacket is nice for fall. I wouldn't recommend wearing in lower than 50 degree weather, its not quite warm enough for that. I did order a size up because some of the reviews show it runs slightly small. It is a bit too big, but still very comfortable. Its not as long as I thought, but reading the description again now, it does say how long the jacket is. I would definitely recommend ordering this if you want it. November 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Long fleece hoodie Love the length but will get a bigger size next time because a large is snug for a medium to large shirt wearer. October 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very warm Love my sweater And I'm going to order another one October 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for short girl Excellent for petite woman including arm length. Warm. Well constructed. Happy with purchase. October 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A little big, but warm & cozy! I purchased this hoodie in a Large, because all of my other Columbia fleece (half-zip & full-zip) are all a size Large. However, in a Large this seems to be more of a "coat" than a hoodie. I had read the sizing and reviews, but decided to go with my "normal" size anyway. It was pretty "Large" all over. I really love it, and it is very warm compared to the regular fleece, but I do wish it had been a bit smaller. For reference, I am 5'8" and 157 lbs with more bottom than top... October 23, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by cozy hoodie This jacket was a little bit big on me and I ended up taking in the sides to have a better fit. The length is perfect! Its nice and cozy, I don't think Ill be taking it off at all this Fall! October 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cozy Size medium fit my 5 ft. 4 inc. 125 lb. frame. I ordered the gray and love the color since it can go with pretty much everything. I love how cozy it is. The picture makes it appear thicker and more rigid than it truly is. It is a perfect light to medium weight jacket. I never go wrong with Columbia. October 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice. I was looking for a longer fleece jacket, and this is perfect. I did notice in the description, that the material had no stretch, so I sized up from a medium to an XL, and the fit is good for wearing layers underneath. I do carry my weight in my hips, so sizing up might not work in everybody's case, but it did mine! October 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket I was a little hesitant on ordering due to the ratings on size. I received the fleece jacket, the size is perfect, the jacket fits like a glove and is very comfortable. Perfect weight for chilly mornings. September 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Almost Perfect I ordered this fleece in a M because the description said it ran slightly small. It was way too big. It is not fitted cut, just slightly fitted. I sold it to a co-worker and she loves it and it fit her great. It is good quality and just the right length to wear with leggings and a long shirt. I would like to order it again but I am not sure wether to order a small or xsmall. I did order anther fleece in another style that is the same fit in a S and it fit perfect. I still gave this 5 stars because this is a great product and highly recommend it. I am 5"3 and 125 lbs. September 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Benton Springs II - Long The length of this jacket is great!! Pros: double zipper * thigh length * great fit * cozy and soft * tall collar for those windy days * hoodie I purchased a Medium (I'm a 6-8) and it will accommodate a light sweater. If you want to put bulky sweaters under (why??) buy one size up. Cons: Hoodie doesn't adjust but it's great to have it. I would add inside knit wrist warmers to prevent the breeze going up the sleeve. I bought Deep Blush and may have to purchase another in another in Quill (I refuse to wear black in winter!!) September 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Jacket The new Benton Springs II long hoodie is a perfect lightweight fleece. The length is long, which is exactly what I wanted. The hood is NOT lined, so lies flat in the back. The sleeve lengths are just right; they hang an inch above my knuckles, which I prefer. Any shorter and the sleeves would be too short when you bend your arm or wear a light sweater underneath. Besides the two outside zippered pockets, there are two additional pockets inside (no closure), although they are quite long - 12.5", so reaching for something at the bottom is a struggle if it's a small item. Minor complaint, as I'm just happy that there are inside pockets! I purchased a black in Medium and it fits just right. I normally wear a small or medium depending on the style of clothing. September 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect for Changeable Weather This is perfect for hiking or just outdoor wear. I love the addition of the hoodie for inclement weather. The quality is excellent and the pink color I ordered is true to the picture. It's runs a little snug. I wear a size 12 but wanted space to wear a heavy sweater underneath so I needed an extra large size. July 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product! I love my new sweater but it's been too hot lately to actually try it out. It's very warm and cosy, very soft as well. It will come in handy on those chilly fall days. August 16, 2015
