Rated 1 out of 5 by Very Disappointing VERY thin fabric....I could see through it which is not what you would expect from fleece. I am disappointed with the quality and will be returning it. May 23, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Just alright I absolutely love having thumb holes on my sleeves. I will not order this item again. Also, runs small, not comfortable :(. Giving it away to goodwill. January 30, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Decent Fleece In full agreement with other reviewers that this fleece runs a bit small. I am consistently a L in Columbia tops/coats, and I ordered a L fearing the XL would be too big. This fleece is o.k., but is quite thin. Sea Salt is much more 'white' versus 'off white'. January 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love the Glacial Fleece top - just right Love this product, the light weight and soft texture feels great. I ordered 5 different colors that were available, wish there were more darker colors. I wear fleece tops every day in the winter thru spring. Columbia has the best, love the wider colar. Will buy more when there are additional colors and sales. Take one star off for color availability. January 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thin and comfy! I ordered this to wear as a thin fleece layer while hiking. It works great for that function. Its also become one of my favorite winter house layers as well. The neck is pretty long, but this isn't bad to me because it can really protect your neck if its cold, and it folds down nicely if it is unzipped. Runs true to fit, I'm 5' 5" 130 lb and a small fits great. December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeping Warm Fabric is wonderful. If you want to wear it over a heavier layer size up. Over a quick dry material it is perfect. Nice cuff trim piece makes for a clean finish. October 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it This is perfect for a light chill. I was dreaming of wearing this on my drive home from work the first cool fall day. It is very comfortable and perfect with a light t shirt. I got another I loved it soo much. October 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Pullover I purchased this fleece in the Purple Lotus/Light Grape color for a summer trip to Alaska and it was PERFECT! I loved the lightweight feel of this fleece. The quality was excellent, and I really liked the vibrant colors. After reading some of the other reviews, I decided to order one size up and I'm very glad I did. It was comfortable and just a little roomy in all the right places. If this fleece had been too snug or body-hugging, I'm not sure how flattering it would have been on my petite curvy figure. Can't wait to pull this pullover back out this winter! June 28, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ideal for use in any occasion It is the second to buy, and every time I like this model May 5, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Very thin "fleece" This is definitely a fleece-like material on the outside, not all the way through. The inside is like a smoother polyester. Overall, this is more like a shirt, not like what I would be looking for in buying a "fleece", which is soft and THICK! For winter. This is a fall shirt, plain and simple. For that, it's pretty good. Don't expect soft on the inside. This shirt is not. January 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not Fleecy On Inside This fleece is super cute, color is exactly like pictured. I got this thinking that it would be fleece lined on both sides but the inside of this is not fleece. It's a smooth fabric, still warm but not exactly what I was expecting. I'd give it a 5 star review if it was fleece on the inside as well. I ordered a medium and it fits great, not too tight, not too loose, it's definitely a flattering cut. January 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great, warm, light weight top! These tops are great! They are perfect by themselves on a slightly cool day but even better with a long sleeve t-shirt underneath on a cold day. They are great lightweight solutions for the active individual. Great fit, true to size! Bought two, will buy more! Purchased for my daughter. January 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I ordered Perfect pullover! Cannot complain I got exactly what I purchased. December 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great jacket Good quality as usual. Does run more than slightly small. October 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Color not as pictured I bought this in Coral Glow but its actually fluorescent and unwearable! Definitely not as pictured. August 29, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Snuggly This product is a classic 1/4 zip fleece. It is what it is - soft and comfy. However, the fit on Columbia tops in general is all over the board. I ordered a L in this one to fit my 5'10" frame. The sleeves are short and the length across the back is tight. I run into this a lot with Columbia. Sometimes I will exchange for a XL and then it looks like I'm wearing a tent, but at least the sleeves are long enough and the I don't feel like I'm going to bust through the shoulders like the Hulk. I am normal build and I love Columbia, but don't feel like wearing tents in all their tops. And then 1/2 of the L items I order fit perfect. April 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent! I love this fleece! it's super warm & soft without a bulky feel. You can just feel the good quality when you put it on! I ordered a size small and it fits great! not too tight ( so its easy to put a baselayer under) but not overly loose. I would defiantly recommend this fleece to a friend. March 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice fleece, but its NOT red Columbia seems to have its OWN version of the color red. This is the second time I've ordered a red top and both of them have a pinkish/orangish hue to them. They are a fine color (I kept both products) but they absolutely are NOT red. The fit is good for me, the fabric is a not as heavy as I was expecting, but in the Pacific Northwest, we need a variety of outerware to be comfortable as the weather is so changeable. Given these drawbacks, I would still recommend the product. March 5, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not As Expected Purchased this 1/2 zip to wear over a shirt. I ordered a medium to ensure it would fit with room. To my surprise, it was extremely small and fit way too snug. This works more as a base layer as it is a very close fit. It is also a very thin fleece in terms of material. Not sure I would even rate it at 100. As a layer on top of a shirt, it did keep me warm. Recommend you consider ordering one to two sizes up from what you normally wear to ensure you have plenty of room. March 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by ggirl i love this shirt.....it is really comfortable.... February 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just right! I was looking for a pullover that wasn't too heavy or bulky. This was just right. It is perfect under a jacket or vest and provides just enough warmth to wear around the house when it's chilly without weighing me down. The size runs a bit small so I would recommend if your tummy isn't perfectly flat going a size up. I ordered medium which I wear in most everything and it was a little snug at first but loosens up after wearing. I will stay with the medium. Style-wise it is very cute on with plenty of coverage in the back. I will order more of this item for sure. I got it in white and love it! Very versatile. February 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fits great Collar a little bit big but I love it January 24, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Way to large I bought the hoodie at the same time size L this one also a size L is so huge that I use it to sleep in.I am to lazy to send it back so that is what I use it for. T he hoodie was perfect! January 23, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs Small But Love It It seems lately that the Columbia womenswear is running small. I normally wear a large, but read the "active fit" comment on the item description. The XL fits perfectly and is quite comfortable. It's lightweight, which I love for hiking and daily activities. January 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Glacial Fleece III 1/2 Zip Love it - fit is great! January 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fleece zip Love the color and the comfortable feel wearing it January 7, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dislike the new design and size I have absolutely loved the Glacial 1/2 zip fleeces - I have 5 of them. I wear them daily and love the lightweight warmth and flattering fit they provide. I recently purchased a new one to add to my collection and am totally disappointed in its fit and style. I HATE the "roomy" sizing, the extremely large collar, and the darts at the bust. It has a totally frumpy look. Please, Columbia, go back to the last 2-3 years' style in this fleece. December 31, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Very thin, very small, no pockets Very thin, runs very small (size up!) and has no pockets. Collar is wide when zipper is down. December 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite IF there were more neutral colors! I really like this half zip fleece! I would order a bunch more of them IF they were offered in several more neutral colors, such as grey, charcoal grey, navy. I don't want hot pink and purple fleece. I have the black and it is my favorite everyday fleece. Soft, lightweight, and I like the zipper hight if fully zipped. Very comfortable and flattering. Columbia - if you read these reviews, I think you'd have a lot more orders if you included some more neutral colors. I'd order them all. December 20, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Sweater but not the color I expected I love the sweater, its warm beyond belief and it is very cozy my only complaint is that the color was not what I expected. It is described as "Red Hibiscus" but it more more of an electric neon red color. November 22, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Would recommend.... I really like this pullover, however it's something you would wear over a tank or sports bra, unless you went up a size or two to be an actual pull over.The fit its a little clingy, but very comfortable. November 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product not only looks sharp, but feels soooo good! As I bought this on line, I had not seen it or tried it on. I was a little apprehensive, but know Columbia has great products. I got an email telling me the top had been shipped and to expect it within 7 days...the time was much quicker! The package was very light and my first thought was...oh no....this cannot be a fleece top as they are usually thick. But it was.....and so soft. Tried it on...and it is perfect. True to size and a perfect weight for wearing all day! And it washes like a dream! My new favorite shirt! Will definitely get more Columbia products! November 3, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not up to Columbia's Standards Quality not what I have come to expect from Columbia. Will take this into consideration when ordering in the future. October 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by new favorite fleece This is a comfy, cute, warm fleece at a great price. The fleece is thinner than some other Columbia products, but still provides plenty of warmth. Love the fit! October 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product!! I have two of these now and I wish I had one in every color. These are so soft and comfortable. They make you feel warm and cozy. I am a stay at home mom and always running the kids around so these are handy on cool mornings when bringing the kids to school, they keep you warm but you don't get hot. They are really thin micro fleece. I can't say enough good things about this. Buy one you will not regret it. August 25, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice fleece, but very thin I bought this fleece for running, but it's very thin. It works well layered over other things, but if I'd realized how thin it was I would not have bought it for running. It is a nice cover-up in general. February 12, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Too long I have 3 other Columbia tops purchased 2 yrs aago & love them. The new one is 3 inches longer..not good for short waisted/long legs like me. Will have it altered because of good quality. February 7, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice fabric Lighter weight than expected. I agree with earlier reviewers that the collar design is too high. Order next size larger if you want to layer. Design could benefit from side slits at bottom because fabric clings to garments underneath and tends to ride up. February 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Soft Fleece I love this top. It is so soft and warm. The ONLY complaint I might have is the collar is slightly large. January 6, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Review of Women's Glacial III 1/2 zip I am extremely disappointed you changed the design of the women's glacial fleece. I have purchased many of the Women's Glacial Fleece 1/2 zip AL6082 and practically live in them in the SF Bay Area in California. I do not like the design with the higher neck or the fit and length of this design. It runs larger than the AL6082. I didn't realized you changed the design and wasted the shipping charges returning two of them. I have a large variety of colors and the pale turquoise is my very favorite. If you brought it back I think it would be a great seller. Other products disappear in turquoise and it is a current popular color. January 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great top! I got this fleece for my mom for Christmas. She absolutely loves it! She said it fits great and it's soft and cozy. I will buy one for myself soon! December 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Layer warm but not bulky great layering piece December 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very soft! Love this pullover. Fits great and is so soft. December 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great gift- they loved it. Bought this for a gift for my daughter-in-law. She loved it and let me know how much all the time December 24, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Last Year's was better fit Little weird darts that don't hit in the right place...who needs them in a turtle neck? Last years was just slightly fitted . Not sure what to do with the neck. It is too big, wide and tall to zip up, it is on your chin. You can't fold it over so must be worn open like a collar. Loved everything about the fit last year, no darts and the neck was perfect! Columbia please bring back that styling! December 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Soft So soft, love it. I want every color. I usually wear an xs but wanted it loose so I got the small. December 23, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice top This is a very nice fleece top, but I did not realize it would have bust darts, which do not look good on me. It's hard to tell from the picture, even magnified. I ordered it in white and a lovely pale blue, but returned the pale blue after seeing the poor look (on me) of the white. The fleece is quite thin and not very warm, but I'm sure the top would suit other people that aren't icicles like me. It's nice and stretchy, a good length on the body and arms. I like the cuff trim, zipper is a good quality. Just not the darts - I think this is the only brand with darts this year. Regrets. December 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loved this shirt Just the right temp. With a t under it! December 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite Top, New and Improved I own several of these tops. The new version is slightly heavier fabric, the top is a bit more fitted and slightly longer, with a bit of elastic around the wrists. December 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light weight is comfy at home. My favorite time to wear this light weight fleece is in the evening around the house. It is the perfect weight for taking the chill off when living near the foggy coast. The Light Grape color is really a lovely dark periwinkle, which I am delighted with. The length is long on me, below the hip, and I'm rolling up the sleeves, but I'm cozy and comfy in my periwinkle fleece. December 14, 2012
