Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good I expected it to be a tad more snug than it was for a size small but it fits fine anyway. I can wear a light top underneath it and still be comfortable. I also expected the fleece to be thicker for the price. This fleece jacket can be worn indoors and out. Over all I'm happy with my purchase and expect this fleece jacket to last for a very long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Go-To Fleece Great heavyweight fleece, more fitted and tighter nap in fabric than the Benton Springs jacket. Disappointed by color though--more lavender-y than brown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacing My Old Helly Hansen In the PNW, we need a light rain jacket that can be layered over warmer layers, when necessary. This jacket is perfect for that. The construction on this Columbia jacket is just beautifully done, and it is not a surprise considering I have a vest from Columbia that is over 12 years old and still looks fabulous. I was price conscious but still wanted something good looking, and I'm just thrilled with my pick. It's a 5-Star buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great fleece Nice and soft. Great when you need a light fleece (even though it is a nice weight). Wear it in my air-conditioned office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I recently lost my old Columbia jacket and needed to replace it. I originally had the Benton jacket but wanted to try the Fast Trek. I was nervous that the sleeves were going to be too narrow compared to my old jacket but it has plenty of room for layers. Great quality, great price, and great fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product The size was a perfect fit. I don't care for jackets with hoodie's and they are very hard to find without​ them, so when I seen this without​ one I had to have it. Thanks for having them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's Fast Trek Fleece Colour is a vibrant blue as illustrated. Fleece is a little heavier than I anticipated from description so a little warmer than needed to go with the summer shell of same colour. Quality excellent. Chose small over medium and happy I did as it fits perfectly even though my measurement were between small and medium. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and Warm This is my first time buying a Columbia fleece. All others have been fine up until now. The fleece is nice and thick, soft and and provides so much warmth. It's perfect for California spring nights. I'm looking forward to using it for backpacking when I sleep at night.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seems warm, a little boxy Only worn this a couple of times so can't truly speak to it's function, but the quality looks good: nice fleece material, no loose threads, and the zippers work. I ordered a medium and the fit is a little boxy....a little too wide for me (I'm 5'5" and 135lbs). Would be good as a top layer if that's what you're looking for (I wasn't, I was looking for a middle layer). I ordered it in "stormy blue" because I like strong colours, but it's more of a periwinkle blue (more pastel), which isn't as preferable. If you're looking to obtain "the basics" of warm or outdoor gear, I guess it's a good one to have on hand. It's your basic fleece jacket, nothing too special. I'm not in love with the fit nor colour, but as long as it is functional (warm but not sweaty, which fleece is known to be good for) that's all that really matters at the end of the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and warm! I'm so impressed with how warm this fleece is. I always gravitate toward it as a light layer to throw on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it, but I wish it were warmer I bought this in black. I've been wearing this a lot, though it's not as warm and thick as I had imagined it'd be and I live in Southern California. I usually have to wear something long sleeved or a sweater under it to feel warm enough on a cold Socal day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but too big I love the Fast Trek II fleece jacket that Columbia has brought back! I own two that are five years old. It's still a great, sleek jacket but it has now been sized larger than in the past. The sleeves are very long and the arm holes are big. The body is also too large. I am going to try this jacket in a medium and hope it fits better. The colors are wonderful but slightly different than shown on-line.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice light fleece This fleece is actually super warm for me! It blocks the wind very well and also functions fine with light rain or snow. It is a perfect, snug for me (size small and I am 62" 130 lbs.). Sometimes it gets a bit too warm. I use it as more of a lightweight coat than a jacket. Good quality. I have had mine for over a year and it still looks brand new!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer beware: zippers do not last Over the past 4 years, I have purchased 7 of these in various colors for myself. I really liked the feminine cut. The major flaw is the quality of the zippers— they do not last. The toggles or handle part of the zipper snap off leaving you with nothing to grab to zip. I now have one of these where, additionally, the sliding cartridge of the zipper fell off in the laundry. There is nothing to zip and the jacket is now permanently open. Columbia does not warranty these over a year. Columbia does not consider this “jacket” to be outerwear. I can also speak to inconsistency in sizing. These are all Larges… but some fit like XL, some like medium, some middle of the road. You’ll have to order and do trial and error.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very flattering and functional I recently ordered this item as a mid-layer for a fall hiking trip to the Great Smoky Mountains. It kept me warm and wasn't too hot when I was being active. The only negative factor would be that it is a decent weight and doesn't pack down well, So if pack weight or room is a factor for you this isn't the best fleece. It also crossed over very well to trips into town. The deep marine is a pretty color and the fit was flattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent jacket for MN's cooler months This coat is very handy for when it's too cold outside to go without a coat, but you don't need a heavy, below-zero-type coat. Even though it is just a fleece jacket, it comes across as stylish. I wear it daily. Color: I ordered black but the color is more of a charcoal. Size: I ordered a women's Large, and the body of the coat is fitted but roomy enough for a sweater or sweatshirt under the jacket. I have long arms though, and while the sleeves are just long enough, I wish they were another inch longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fleece Fleece jacket fits great and very comfortable and soft. I like the added pocket on the arm. Fit is somewhat small - I often wear a small but ordered a medium for this fleece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and product I was looking for a no-frills, comfortable fleece to bring to my work this fall (I'm an environmental technician) as I've trashed my previous fleece, may it rest in peace. This one looks presentable and professional, the fleece has a nice weight without too much "fuzz" to the fabric, and it fits nicely. I'm 5'4 and 110 and bought the size XS. It's too hot here in Tennessee in August to wear it and give a more thorough review, but so far I'm happy with it!
Date published: 2016-08-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! It ran a little big, so I returned for a smaller size (Medium). It's great for bustier woman (I normally have to order one size up for this reason alone), but it stretches well and is form fitting on bust and waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TREK FULL ZIP FLEECE JACKET I love this jacket. The colour was just as I imagined. I have worn it several times and washed it. The jacket held its shape. What impressed me were the inside pockets, easily large enough to hold travel documents, passport, etc. The zip outside pockets were also adequate and secure enough to hold a cell phone or passport. The jacket is a lightweight fleece and will be perfect for travelling in the summer when sometimes you just need some extra warmth for cooler mornings and/or evenings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome jacket I'm big into jackets and having a nice variety of them so I am so glad I bought this jacket. It's a nice size and works for running into town or wearing around school. The fleece isn't thin, but isn't thick either. Hands down one of the best jackets I've owned. It serves it's function- keeping me warm! I ordered the medium in black and I am obsessed. What I love especially with this jacket is since I have 2 dogs and 2 cats, their fur doesn't stick to it as much as my previous jackets. If you're looking for a nice quality jacket to keep you warm and wear on those nice fall and spring days, this is it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good jacket Used it recently in Las Vegas and it kept me warm on a windy 45 degrees cold day. The zipper pockets are very useful and secure. I initially ordered S but changed it to XS as I wanted it a little bit tighter and it fit just perfect making me look very curvy and stylish. The pomegranate color is beautiful!! Liked this jacket so much that ordered another one in black. I'm 5'2" and 125 lbs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Butter Soft, Dense, Ultra-fine This thing is top quality. Soft micro-fleece type of finish. I can tell this thing will stay nice after washing. It is thick and dense. I believe it does a decent job of not letting too much light wind in because it is a more dense construction and tighter weave/knit/whatever. Super-fine. My mom wants one. So now I have to buy her one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection in a sweater This sweater keeps you warm without over heating you. And cools you without making you cold. It's the perfect combination. Not to mention the stylish cut and color. And the fabric it's self is too soft to describe in words it's something you have to experience yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit! I bought this sweater for camping, my two friends and I go camping in Northern California once a month and we call our gang "the mountain mamas". We wanted to have jackets made so we decided to buy some fleece sweaters and add patches of all the parks we go to. I am a 5'7 female, I am 136 lbs, bra size 34 B, size 5-6 pants, and the size small fit me perfect. Very flattering on my body and I can't wait to break it in camping.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved it for 19 months Maybe 19 mo is considered a good run these days, but I was disappointed by the zipper breaking down in less that 2 years. Otherwise, loved the fleece. Needed the large for 5'6''145lb athletic build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fitted and fabulous This is the third color I've purchased of this fleece zip up. The high neck keeps out drafts, the long length keeps kidneys & lower back warm, and the fitted style keeps my torso warm. And, ladies, the fit is very flattering! The cut suits a slim frame rather than a fuller frame in terms of the waist, but curvy should be no problem. I may get a fourth! I live in them at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket Had this in black. Also have have other brands of this type of jacket and my favorite is my Columbia. Like the fabric, the warmth it provides, still looks like new after many washings and I wear it year around here in Iowa with our ever changing weather. So I had to order a second and plan to buy more!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! With all the varieties of fleece available I wasn't sure what I would receive. This jacket is a nice weight for cold but sunny Colorado weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More colors? I LOVE this fleece and have it in black and purple lotus. Any chance you could make it in chocolate or dark brown? I'm sorry, but the other colors are horrid, but if you had a navy or brown, I would definitely buy it. They are GREAT fleeces.
