Rated 5 out of 5 by Great inexpensive hoodie! Great to wear for fall weather! August 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Colors The fleece is pretty nice. I just imagined the color to be darker because online it's perceived to be a dark purple. That's all August 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by True to size I bought this item in Razzle size large because I am large chested and I normally wear a large in shirts. The last time I bought a Columbia jacket was spring 2014 and the medium was tight in the chest. I have a 39" chest and 31" waist and I'm 5'6". I love this jacket and I think it will be perfect for colder months! July 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome hoodie I found one of these in an outlet store and had to email customer service with all the details to find out how I could get a few more. It is comfortable, warm and holds up better than fleece. I am cold natured so I like to wear this with a t-shirt and a pull-over sweater underneath. Perfect warmth indoors and out. I have washed it dozens of times and it is holding up great. Wish it would go on sale so I could order a dozen more :) March 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fleece Jacket Love this Jacket. Finally a Fleece with a hood! I link this because I can wear it under pretty much any jacket. March 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love My Hoodie!! I love my new Columbia Fast Trek hoodie, I do not like to wear a heavy coat while I am driving so this is perfect for me, light weight but still warm and cozy! March 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect suitability I'm 5'11" and slim with long arms and the sleeves and body length fit perfect. It's nice and soft too! The color was more pale than the picture indicated but still pleasant. I had purchased the "razzle" color. Highly recommended :) February 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Decent sweatshirt Sleeves could be a little longer, I'm afraid I'll rip it if I try to move my arms around with my thumbs in the thumb holes. Body is fleece but the hood is non-staticy material, which is nice. The hood is a bit tight around the face though. I prefer to have a more visor-like forehead part of the hood to keep rain out of my eyes. It is warm and the medium fit is good for 5'8 130lbs. September 19, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by great hoodie I got this hoodie on sale. For $25, this is a great hoodie. It fits well and is very flattering. The elderberry color is beautiful. I only wish that the inside is lined with something other than fleece, but of course that would be asking for too much for the price. :P September 19, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Extra Small I was disappointed by the size of this jacket. It is smaller than the standard Columbia fleece, at least my XL was. Fortunately the wrist warmer add about 1.5 inches to the arm length, making it wearable. September 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Only complaint is the color This is a great fleece. Very warm, feels like it will last a long time. My only complaint is I ordered the "eldeberry" - thinking it would have some purple but it just maroon. They should just call it maroon. September 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this jacket! This jacket is very lightwweight but warm on it's on. Thin enought to layer also. Not cold enought to wear yet but believe it will be great to run in on cold mornings. September 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great hoodie (but runs BIG!) This is a great hoodie. Heavy-weight enough to feel substantially protective, but not bulky. The hood snugs around your head so the wind can't blow it off. It has a flattering fit. My only complaint was how BIG it is! I normally wear size L in tops (I have small shoulders but am well-endowed up front) and this was waaaay too big all the way around. Returned it for a Med. I recommend ordering a size down. Oh, and if you order the orange prepare to look like a construction worker - it is BRIGHT!!! July 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 Fabulous hoodie This is so soft and comfortable. I own 2 and may get another color. The fit is right on July 1, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pure comfort! Bought this hoodie on a whim, after reading the reviews. Some said smaller than normal, some said larger. My experience is that it is true to size except it is a straighter, slim-ish cut. Does not hug my body tightly, it fits just right. (I am size XL, and I do not look like a sausage in this hoodie.) lol It is a microfiber fabric that is very cozy. The sleeves are long-ish with a thumb slot in the inner cuff. Zipper closure rises up to the nose, so you can tuck your face down is blustery weather. It is surprisingly wind-resistant. Deep, full, zippered pockets accommodate even thickly-gloved hands. All in all, an excellent purchase if I do say so myself! March 7, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE this Hoodie I love this hoodie!! Everything about it is perfect. Fits great and I love the thumb holes in the sleeves. I also love the shape of the hood. I bought one of these hoodies and decided that I liked it so much that I bought and extra one! February 6, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome! I love this hoodie, it's a great product that is so warm! I love the feel and functionality of this jacket! January 25, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by great fit Absolutely love the fit and function with the thumb holes. The only issue is I'm on my third one. Had to return the first one due to the stitching coming undone and returned the second one due to the stitching where the two materials came together was twisted. Not up t parr with what I am used to from Columbia, but can't wait to get one I can actually keep and wear! Love the look and the fit with! January 23, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Well made, warm This hoodie is more fitted than I expected so it didn't work as well as the Benton Springs Full Zip jacket when wearing over a shirt, but if I'd ordered a size larger, it would have been perfect. I'll use it over a knit shirt and it will be perfect for walks and the gym. January 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product and Service I was thrilled with my purchase and the service I received as well. 1st quality my daughter was thrilled and it fits perfectly. Received it in miraculous timing. and a great price. My daughter rides horses and she said it keeps her super warm without the bulk and uncomforableness of a heavy coat. January 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fleece Jacket I originally saw this jacket in Blue and got it for my mom for her birthday, I tried it on to make sure of fit and thought it was so awesome I had to get myself one and so I picked up a Pink one for myself. We both love our jackets and wear them walking the dog, going on a brisk walk, or out for whatever. December 27, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by just sized smaller ordered XL as this is what I wear in every shirt, sweater etc however this hoodie was too snug when zipped so am returning it Color and texture was great and will probably reorder a bigger size December 11, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by The fit of this product is completely non-functional I received this product in an online order with multiple other jackets and sweatshirts and this one stood out for being completely ill-fitted. The size was much too large and the way it is constructed doesn't make much sense. The side panels flare out at the bottom so you won't retain heat well. The fit at the neck is much too tight for how wide the bottom is. The arms are too long. I wouldn't recommend this sweatshirt. December 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Attractive and fits nicely but not as warm as I expected. I bought this for running outdoors. I love the comfy and moveable fabric but was disappointed by the lack of wind-resistance it offered. I don't like that the hood is so fitted, not drapey in any way...think small opening for your face and tight against your head. Good coverage for your neck, though. Great for cool running, not so good for colder weather running (below 40 degrees). Did well with light drizzle water resistance. December 1, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by The product is of excellent quality. I have not ordered from you before. In receiving the hoodie, I was very pleased with the quality of the garmet. I was also pleased with the swiftness of receiving the order and the notifications that the order was received and when it was shipped. Thank you again. November 29, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm and stylish! Really wanted something that would be cute and not too bad of a price. I do recommend if you are unsure if you can get it! November 26, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for Alabama climate Bought this for my granddaughter and it fit her perfect. It is a nice weight for our climate. Color and style as advertised. Great little jacket. November 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Trim Fit Wind Blocker Great jacket to wear against the wind. The hood contours around head without the help of strings - although strings are optional. Awesome jacket that doesn't add bulk - streamlined and sharp in appearance. November 9, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product I haven't washed the hoodie yet so I m still waiting to see how it fairs after that, but so far I love it! It fits perfectly and it's just right for how I use it. November 8, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice hoodie Bought this for my grand-daughter, she liked it alot, fit her nicely. I searched many stores to find a hooded Columbia sweatshirt and had no luck so I went online and was pleased with the selection, ease of ordering and styles. This hoodie looks as if it will be very warm for her. October 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase Can't stop wearing this hoodie. Very warm, comfortable, and looks great. I'm very happy with the purchase. October 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing! My parents bought me this jacket to wear around campus. I can't wear it enough! It is super warm, and super sporty looking. I like to wear on rainy days because of the hood. Also the pockets are nice too. It is the perfect jacket for the perfect price! (: September 24, 2011
