Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm and comfy Perfect layering piece! November 13, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Needed larger size Bought this for a friend in a size L originally - her usual size but had to exchange for a XL. Once she had the right size, she wore it just about every day of our vacation. She layered it with a tee and liked the fact that it was lightweight and yet warm. October 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute warm and cozy Love this, fleece but not the really thick kind. Comfortable for wearing anywhere casual. September 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product Good color, light weight, very comfortable. June 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! This fleece hoody is great for a Spring or Fall walk in northern Wisconsin! Very comfy & snuggly warm! June 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect size my wife loves this product June 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So comfy I have three of these in different colors. No pilling after being washed and the cut is flattering. It's not bulky thanks to the thin material and the gathered stitching in the back. It's long enough in the body for good coverage. I'm 5'6" 125 lbs with long arms and the medium fits perfectly. June 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! I was looking and looking at this item due to conflicting reviews (I don't have Columbia store nearby). I'm 5'8" with long arms and generally 6-8, have several Columbia outerwear items in M (like several jackets, ski pants etc.). I didn't own any Columbia fleece tops. Anyways, I bought this in S and it's perfect, it's slim fit, but has long sleeves, just right for me. I don't think this style would look good loose. April 10, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Thinner than expected The material was thinner than I expected but very soft and comfy. It could be warmer but its still nice. February 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect cool weather fitted hoodie! I bought one of these (purple) light fleece hoodies last winter at Cabelas while shopping with my husband. What else is a girl to do in a huge manly store?! I wear it literally all the time. I love it so much that I bought another one (pink) from Columbia online this winter. I wanted the blue one too, but were out of my size :(. It is perfect because it is fitted, but not too tight, therefore it has a womanly fit unlike a big bulky sweat shirt, yet provides the same cozy warmth. I love that it has a pocket for your hands too. The value is exceptional - on sale for $24.90 - what a steal! It is casual, but you can "dress it up" if you throw on a cute scarf with it. My favorite cool weather outfit: warm leggings, Columbia fleece hoodie & UGG boots!! Thermal cup of coffee optional! February 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have this in 5 colors. I love this hoodie. It is very comfortable and flattering. I am 5"5" 110lbs and the extra small fits me perfectly. Not too tight and the sleeves are just long enough. Sometimes sleeves run short on me, but not this hoodie. It also washes very well and looks close to new after 5 washes already. February 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shirt! I love the detailing on this shirt, like the shirring across the back and the seams running down the sides and on the upper chest. Very feminine, and takes a cozy fleece to the next level. Great for casual workdays, running errands on the weekend, lounging on the couch. Hood is really roomy and cozy too. Runs about one size smaller, I am 5'3", 125lbs, 34B and the small is roomy enough for a thin shirt underneath. I really love this shirt and would absolutely recommend. February 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this hoodie! I would buy this again but it is sold out. Please make it again! The fit is slimming and the micro fleece feels so soft. I really am disappointed I can't order more. February 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Light weight and functional I odered this fleece hoodie in blue color. I am 6ft tall and normally wear size M, but got the fleece in size L and it fits perfect, with some room to spear. It is light weight and functional, perfect for outdoors or a coold summer night by the beach. The only complaint I have is that the hood is a bit large and not quite sits well, when fleece is on. I would have prefered it without a hood better. Other than that is it is great product and I will have a great use out of it. February 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice and comfy This hoodie is nice and comfortable. Sleeves little bit too long. February 11, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by It's not Sea Salt it's White! I ordered again based on the reviews, as recommended I went up a size to an X-large when I normally wear a large in majority of items like this. First of all I ordered the Sea Salt color thinking it would be an off white, it's not it is a White. Secondly as mentioned, it is thin and will need to be layered. Which I had ordered the Benson Springs Jacket in a what I would call Sea Salt color which will work well. I guess I will keep it for that reason, otherwise I would recommend wearing a cami underneath it! February 10, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very Soft, comfortable to wear I read most of reviews before I purchase this item,Its very soft, very comfortable to wear. I am 5'4, 115lbs. XS is fit but a bit long on the sleeve. But I don't feel as warm as other viewers. Good thing about Columbia is they sew their logo of most of products instead of print it. That tells me they focus on detail even just a shirt. Very impressive. I use to purchase NF al but they are not into detail anymore. so I purchase Columbia instead. There is one thing confusing me is they change their number all the time, you will need to find the right time to purchase in order to get good deal. February 9, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Runs Small I am 5'7" around 150 lbs. and wear a size 10. I ordered a M and it was too snug. The fabric was thin. I thought it was cute but had to return due to being too small. February 4, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice but Thin Got this on sale. It looks and feels nice and is very soft. But it is also very thin so if you live in a cold place this will be one of many layers you will need. I would recommend it on sale as it is nice but at its full price I would expect something warmer. January 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable, stylish, and KEEPS YOU WARM! I am 5'7" and 133lbs, and hour glass shape. I could not be more happy with this hoodie!! I ordered red hibiscus in S and it fits perfectly! This color is actually more of a bright deep coral than red, which I loved. I have a long torso and arms and this fit me wonderfully. January 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Hoodie Love the hoodie - very lightweight but warm. Soft material and cozy feeling. Will probably order another in a different color. January 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfy but layer up if you're gonna be out in the cold! I love the color, I got the red hibiscus, it wasn't really red, more like a deep coral. I wear it over my normal clothes and under a jacket so it's warm. December 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect! Loose but flattering This is my new favorite lightweight hoodie. I can wear it with a t-shirt underneath when it's a little breezy or easily layer it under a coat. Because of how lightweight it is it works better as a top than a hoodie, but I prefer to wear something underneath since I can feel the seam across the back if I wear it by itself. One thing I LOVE about this hoodie is the little extra length in the arms. Even with my arms stretched out in front of me they don't pull back past my wrists. One note: super busty people might want to size up. I'm 5'10" with a 41" chest and I show little stretch lines on the chest. Not much of a problem, I just wear it with a sports bra but if you were larger I could see it being uncomfortable. December 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great buy Love this! The pocket and the hood really make this best fleece I own! Not to mention the price was reasonable. October 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the style This is a very flattering fleece. It looks like I've had it for decades and that it was made for me. It is very casual and very comfy. It is not a thicker fleece, so I end up wearing it with a fleece vest on colder days. I have a long torso and usually wear a 6-8 top. Based on other reviews, I went with the small and it is comfy without being baggy. February 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great fleece This fleece is light weight, but very warm. I love it! I'm 5' 6" and weight 125. A size small fits well. February 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Columbia quality, but not their warmest product. This is NOT going to be the warmest winter hoodie you own, but the micro fleece is a very soft, dense and thin material. It all makes for a really lightweight, yet very cozy hoodie. The first time I put it on I just melted. The thickness is great for layering under a coat or jacket and I really enjoy the large hood for days I feel crummy and would rather run my errands incognito. I am a muscly and chesty 150lbs and the size L fits with a nice amount of wiggle room. Very true to size. My only complaint is that the front pocket is not fully lined with fleece. The front half obviously has it, but there is only a thin layer of athletic jersey mesh between your hands and your tummy. I haven't experienced a windy day with this hoodie on, but I can't imagine the unlined pocket keeping even a modest draft out. If they fully lined the pocket, I would give it 5 stars for function. February 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by warm warm and comfortable, but I don't like it in black. February 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by very lightweight I usually wear a small. But bought Medium to add layer underneath. Fleece is soft & thin for indoor wear. Additional layer(s) needed for outdoors. February 7, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Satisfied w/Lightweight Hoodie The hoodie is very thin and light weight. It does seem to keep me warm when I am chilly. The fit I guess is true to size bc it is not meant to be baggy. I am 140lbs, 5'5", 32D and the large is a comfortable fit. Not too small and not too large. Hope that helps give you an idea. I like the design bc it is more flattering to wear helping create shape and complementing to a woman's body rather then a big oversized baggy hoodie. The price is decent as long as it is on sale and you don't pay more then 30-35 for it. I would give a thumbs up review. February 5, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Looks better online I was very disappointed in the quality of this hoodie. It is soft as they say but thin and runs very small especially if you have a larger bust; and I went by the sizing chart. Unfortunately, I sent it back. February 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by MWear it anytime product Loved it because it is so light, you dont´hesitate carrying it with you anytime. Great cut, quality and color. January 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This hoodie is very soft and comfortable. The material of this hoodie is very soft and warm, and the styling is made to be very comfortable yet still very fashionable. January 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this Hoddie wonderful fits well looks nice with the little extras in the seams January 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEST HOODIE EVER I love this hoodie so much I just bought two more. I live in WI and this has been the perfect snuggle hoodie in the current sub zero weather. It's incredibly soft, light weight and warm. I highly recommend this...in every color. January 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hoodie Love this hoodie! Lightweight but still keeps you warm. January 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by cozy cozy hoodie, perfect for a cold day. i bought two sizes due to the mixed reviews. i usually wear a small or medium in womens sizes....the small was roomy but not too tight so it was perfect! the medium was too big. January 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great hoodie! I love this hoodie! Its comfortable and fits nicely. Perfect for cool weather. I bought this hoodie in sea salt white, it is see-through but it still looks good. I would definitely recommend this product. January 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic I ordered it a size to big for myself so I can layer it with other clothing items. Works like a charm. The hood is a nice size and stays on. Love the front pocket to keep hands warm. January 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fleece love it! Love it! Ordered a size bigger tho... January 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thin and Warm! My husband thought it was way to thin to be warm but as soon as I put it on I realized he was very wrong! This fleece is perfect indoors and since it's thin and super soft it's really comfy to wear all day, anywhere. I will be buying more of these for sure!! I am also 5'11" so I love love columbia's sleeve/shirt tail length! Fit is perfect for me!! January 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I Love Columbia I love Columbia clothing. The clothing is so warm and comfortable to wear. I own a lot of Columbia shirts, pants, and coats. SO WARM. January 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Odd. As a customer who has bought many of the Columbia Fleece it seemed a good idea to try out this hoodie. In my mind I had imagined it exactly like the full zip fleece, but in hoodie form. Unfortunately, I felt like the quality just wasn't as great as all of the other Columbia products I have bought... and for the same price, I could have had the full zip (better quality) and would have been more satisfied. Reasons lending to this belief: -It is very light fabric -long sleeved "shirt" feel If you are looking for something very light, this would be a great option for you. I just needed something a little more heavy duty and durable for my up and coming trip to the mountains. December 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Glacial Fleece III Hoodie One of the best purchases I've ever made! It fits me perfectly, it's super comfortable, and the color is awesome. It goes great with my turquoise ski pants. The only thing that could help this jacket is make it retain body odor less. I'm not a smelly person but when I take of my layers at the end of the day this is the only one that stinks. Other than that I love it. December 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect sweater very fast delivery and best sweater. exactly what i expected. December 6, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable, Light Weight Good to lounge in, very comfortable. December 3, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Warm but.. Fleece does keep you warm. I love the style and cut. However the color is nothing like pictures. More like a pink/orange. December 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cozy cute! This hoodie is super soft, the arms are long (hard to find in hoodies) and I love the material that was used inside, helps make it more breathable. The pockets are deep and the hood actually fits over my head, even when my hair is pulled up. And even though it is thin, it's still warm. Perfect for fall weather and layering under jackets in the winter. November 8, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Feels Great Love the feel of this fleece and it looks good But like most Columbia products, it does run small. November 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm and cozy This sweater is super warm and cozy. Is also nice enough for work. I ordered a small and medium because I wasn't sure on size and small fit me better. I'm 5'7 125lbs ( I know I may find this helpful when looking for sizing) The baby blue is my fav colour. The green is also very nice. The size I need isn't always in stock though. November 2, 2013
