Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect A go-to jacket that is soft, warm and the perfect weight. Will be getting a lot of wear! October 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. October 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! August 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 9, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fleece Jacket Great fit she loves it. May 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent jackets The jacket that I purchased was actually a gift for my sister. She loved it so much! I will continue shopping with you all. Thanks for your service! January 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast Trek Fleece Jacket The colors are vibrant, size is true to size. Delivery was prompt and ordering was easy. December 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! December 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by excellent I absolutely love Columbia jackets.. I brought everyone a jacket for Christmas!!! December 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fleece! This is my third jacket from Columbia. I wanted a nice fleece and I definitely got it with this! December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 November 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. November 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect fleece This runs big, but for the price I'm going to keep it because it doesn't run TOO big. It's super soft, super warm, and will be perfect for my needs! The sleeves are nice and long. November 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fleece Very soft and comfortable. Keeps you warm on a chilly autumn day. Need a couple more in different colors. October 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great fit, feel and quality I wear Columbia shirts every single day of the year. I have 43 of them. In the winter I only wear a Columbia fleece jacket over them. nuff said. great products. great service. August 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 11, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. May 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent! Have bought this for outdoors professional purposes, I wear it intensively and goes into washing machine and back on. Love it! May 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! March 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. February 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. February 13, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by disappointed I had owned amazing Columbia products in the past but the quality has declined. I bought a larger size as the product description said runs small. It does not. I ended up with a too big jacket. Its not as well made or warm as previous garments. The bottom is tailored not adjustable so it just sticks out in an ill fitting manner. This is clearly something you need to try on in a store. Color was accurate and its better than most other brands but not as good as it once was. January 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect everyday jacket and so comfy! This jacket is perfect for everyday day use! I live in Houston and we've actually have had some very cold weather, the fleece keeps in the warmth and isn't to stuffy. I'm the average size women 5'5 and a size10- 12. I ordered a large and fits perfect! The zipper on the sleeve is great for an ID, CC, and some cash! I will be repurchasing other colors, truly impressed and well made! January 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product It was a great sweater. My girlfriend loved it. Fast shipping. January 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value - nice look I purchased this and am very happy with the look and feel. I have received compliments on this and it looks much more expensive than it was. The cut is good and its not bulky either. December 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Time for more sophisticated colors! I love this jacket and own three of them, frequently bought on sale. The zippers are terrific and you can usually do without a purse and rely on safe and secure zippered pockets. The only complaint I have is that many of the colors are ugly. December 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by nice lite jacket wonderful jacket when you dont want anything to bulky. love this product December 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice fleece This is a flattering fleece, I like how it is tailored. The only thin I wish it had was a cinch cord at the bottom to keep cool air out. Other than that the material is comfortable. I'm 5'1, 110 lbs and got an XS, I was happy with the fit. October 28, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not True to Color I love everything about this jacket but the color. I ordered Red Hibiscus, which appears a light, pretty color. The actual jacket is WAY more red (like a true red). Not sure if I want to exchange for a different color or just return. October 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fitted black fleece I purchased the black in a size small. I wish I would have gotten the X-small. Great quality and comfort. Definitely recommend. September 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it Love my fall jacket. I do sometimes wish it had a hood but i knew that when i purchased it. It would be nice if it was an option though. When i put it on im instantly warm. Not a jacket i would use for spring chills as it is to warm, but it's perfect for fall and maybe even winter if you have a hat and dont plan on being out to long. Oh i also put it was true to size and for the most part it is. I typically where an xl and purchased a L. I notmally wear Xl for more room in the chet area but that wasnt needed on this jacket. September 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Blue is great. Pink is not pink. I love this fleece. It is comfortable and the sleeves are long enough for my arms. I love the light blue one. I purchased what I thought was pink, but it turned out to be orange. When you see it on other sites it is orange but here it is pink. Sad, because I really wanted pink. So, I took it back. In general, though, this is a quality fleece. September 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love it and wear it all the time! Love this jacket! I have had it for about a year now and I wear it all the time! I wear it for work a lot, but also when I need a light jacket that looks good. I get so many compliments on it! September 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! I bought 2 and especially love the Groovy Pink! More form fit that previous fleeces I have bought from Columbia. March 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by All around great jacket I wanted a fleece jacket with a little more style than the basic no-shape fleece. This jacket fit the bill perfectly. I found it to be true to size, not smaller than what other reviews stated. It can be dressed up with a pretty scarf or worn with sweats for walking or hiking! Great all purpose jacket! March 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love except.. I love my columbia jackets. I wish they wouldnt get covered in lint so easily though. Its a pain to keep the lint and hair off. Other then that it is a great product!! March 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful jacket! I always wanted a Columbia jacket and this website had the best priced ones and the size medium was perfect for me! Came in about a week and I love it! March 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flattering design. Very warm. Very comfortable. This is a great fitted design that is very flattering. It's still roomy enough to be very comfortable. Love this design! For sizing reference, i'm 5'3" and 115 pounds and purchased a size small. March 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my new jacket! I got my this jacket as a birthday gift from my husband. I love so much. It keeps me warm. February 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sea Salt - very functional item Received compliments on this fleece.It runs small since it's tailored as another reviewer noted,I like this.For me,with an athletic build,I wanted a medium versus the tighter fitting size small to allow for movement;sleeves are a little long. Having a pocket in the arm of a technical fleece layer's great for things like lip balm,key,MP3 player.As the seasons change,I've worn a ultra light down vest over it,still comfortable. Washes great,and I hang dry it. February 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Columbia Women's Trek ll zip up fleece This fleece is the perfect weight not too heavy...not too light. It has a very flattering fit, but not tight. I have 4 of these in different colors...love this style!!! I weight 125 and 5 1/2' tall and the size small is perfect. I wash it on the cold cycle and just hang to dry. Fits as if its brand new!!! February 10, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed I've been a big fan of Columbia in the past and have bought many products but the quality just isn't the same anymore. The fleece is thinner than before, the zippers are much cheaper and of poor construction, the collar is proportionately too big, and the sizing is definitely off (although I think they run big rather than small). I've bought other sweatshirts for less of better quality. I hope that Columbia improves its quality again because I have liked this brand so much in the past. Their order processing, customer service and web site are great and these things have made me come back and try again but I'll only come back so many more times if the product quality stays poor. February 10, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not quite right I bought this and a Benton fleece --- kept the Benton and returned the Fast Trek II --- even though it is more stylish. The Fast Trek II size S was a bit tight in the shoulders and the zipper was finicky. The Benson size S fit perfectly. February 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Air Stream This was my second Columbia Fast Trek fleece, so I knew I would love the fit. My original fleece was black, but I wanted a bit of color so I purchased it in Air Stream. It appeared to be a light blue color in the picture, but when I received it in the mail I was a little bit shocked! Wow, was it bright! I would call it more of an electric baby blue. Or even more aquamarine. Despite my initial shock, I am keeping it to combat the depressing winter colors around me. Not sure if you can tell in the picture, but the "Columbia" lettering is white on the actual jacket, so it definitely pops. I did not find it to run small like other reviewers. Just keep in mind that it's more form fitting than most of the bulky, shapeless fleece jackets out there. True to size for me, got a S. I'm 5'9" and typically wear a size 4 or 6. February 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by soft and warm I got the red hibiscus and love it. The minute I put it on I knew it would be a favorite. I love it so much I got another one in a different color. It is soft and warm and you can wear it almost anywhere. January 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect, I love it I think I have worn it every day since I got it. I wish the shipping had been a tiny bit faster but that is literally my only complaint. It fits nicely, not too tight and not too loose. For reference, I'm 5'2", 117lbs, 32D and I ordered an XS. January 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful quality and color I bought the color "Air Stream" and find it to be much brighter than in the little color box on this site. It is a color that would look well w a variety of skin and hair colors. Bc this was my first Colombia purchase, I decided to err on the side of a little too big than a little too small. I bought the large. It is very roomy and the sleeves cover past my wrists. The fit is "cozy" more than "stylish". It is a little bulky on me although I prefer this to an item being too snug. The fabric is very durable and plush. This was a delightful surprise compared to the continuously decreasing quality in fabric that characterizes many clothing items these past few years. I would buy this item again and even buy the size large again. January 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great all-around fleece I purchased this fleece a couple of weeks ago and have worn it nearly every day since. It's warm for outside, but lightweight enough to keep on inside, so it functions almost like a warm cardigan. I want more in additional colors! January 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Fitting Softest Fleece Jacket Love this jacket I wear it almost every day instead of a sweater around the house but I also wear it out. It is a fitted jacket in the softest fleece and looks great on instead of the boxy fleece that everyone else sells. I love the fact that it does not have a hood adding bulk to the back. I have the light turquise, powder blue, sea salt and emerald green. Just love it. Purchased it intially at the Columbia Outlet and the rest online. January 23, 2014
