Rated 1 out of 5 by Bad Would not recommend this product May 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great warm hoodie I have this in all of the colors but white. LOVE them. I'm 5'6" 115lbs got the small in all of them. Colors are great. They wash well and if you stretch them back out before you put in dryer no shrinkage. Great for under fleece jacket or I bought a couple of the 1/2 zip fleece in matching colors works out reall well. The colors are perfect match. As another reviewer said it is more of a shirt not a jacket. Like some of the thin cotton hoodies out there but better fit more feminine . Found more colors on Amazon and plan to order some of them too! March 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Soft and lightweight This was thinner than I was expecting, so I had to return the M and kept the L so a warmer top could fit under it. Could be longer (with some pulling it barely covers my butt), but makes a nice cheery late winter/early spring "jacket". Really love the Harbor Blue with light-colored jeans. March 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hoodie I love this fleece hoodie! I like the gathers in the back which makes it more flattering and feminine! I have 2 of these! March 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice product It's very comfortable and pretty, I bought the sky blue one, love it. Also it's surprising to find that it's very easy to dry after being soaked with water or washed. February 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good buy I got this for my daughter. She usually wears a small but had to get medium because of her long arms. She loves it. It's warm but thin which is good since she doesn't like bulky clothes. February 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by So soft Fit as expected. I wear a small and am 5'4'' and 115 lbs. Very soft material. Has a flattering gathering in the material on the back. February 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by So comfy Great fit and very soft. I love the back. It's a very cute hoodie. February 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's a top; not a jacket! I took the recommendation to order a size up and that was wrong. This is a top: a lightweight, fleecy soft and warm top; not a thick jacket. It can be worn under a jacket. A size larger looks like a size too large. I returned for my usual size and I have plenty of arm movement and it doesn't sag awfully under my arms. If you're looking for a jacket, you probably don't want this. If you want a top with a bit of warmth, get this -- in your regular size. January 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it so much I bought another one I really like this hoodie. It is lightweight but still warm. It has a more feminine style than other hoodies. It does run a bit small-I needed to size up to fit properly across the shoulders and chest, (40C) and as a result it is loose everywhere else. The sleeves are quite long but that is a common issue for me. My only complaint is that the color I ordered-Ruby Red, looked like a true red online, but when I received the hoodie it was actually a bright fuchsia color. I returned it and got another color. January 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Like the fit! I am 5'6"and 140 lbs. I usually wear an 8-10, but in Columbia and some other fitness brands, I often size up as I do not like a tight fit. That was the right choice, as the large fits great - a little loose. I can wear it by itself or fit something light under it. I think the medium would have fit as well, just not the fit I wanted. The nocturnal color is a beautiful blue/grey. My only complaint is that the fleece has a definite "stripe" pattern only on the front panel. I thought it would work out when washed, but not so. I believe it is a flaw in the fabric (only 3 stars in quality). It doesn't really bother me, so I am keeping it. January 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by GLACIAL™ FLEECE III HOODIE Amazing soft grat on my Psoriasis skin. Not itchy I love it and would buy it again if needed. January 20, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Hoodie Not crazy about the gathers on the back January 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfy! Great fleece, it is comfy and warm. I would recommend going up a size though. It fits if you get your regular size but I believe it would be more comfortable if you went up a size. I gave this one as a gift to someone who is about a Med/Lrg so I went up to a XL. She wasn't offended, just grateful it was roomy. I have the same one in my usual Med fits great but wish I went up because arms are not as loose as I prefer. I usually wear Talls but the length on sleeve is good. January 4, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by not a jacket This product is more like a pullover shirt, not thick enough for a jacket. The fabric is very thin like lightweight pajamas. It runs small, tight. December 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fleece I really like it!!!! December 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredibly soft and high quality! This fleece is super soft and comfy, I love it! I am 5'6", 115 lbs, 32B chest and the size small fits perfectly. The sleeves are nice and long like I like them and it's not too tight or too baggy either, just nice and comfy. I've owned these for a couple years now (I have about 10 of them now) and they still look brand new. They wash very well and don't show any pilling or anything. They're just as soft as when I bought them! They are very lightweight and thin, but quite warm. I love that they're not so bulky, but still insulate very well. I actually use them for pajama tops because I'm always cold and they keep me cozy and warm with my fleece PJ pants. If I used them for outside, they would be great for chilly evenings or fall weather - but I have a nice Columbia fleece jacket for that. They'd be great to have in a backpack though to throw on if the weather changed suddenly, as it definitely does here in Colorado! Since I just wear them by themselves or with a tank underneath, the small is perfect for me. I probably would've bought a medium if I was wearing them on top of any other clothing. They're more like a warm sweatshirt, only thinner, so if you're looking for something warmer than that or wind/rain resistant, get a fleece jacket instead. Otherwise, they are super cozy and definitely last a long time! December 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm in the rain I love this sweater! Although the material is not as thick as I'd expected it's the perfect layering piece, and works just as well as a top layer inside or in mild weather. I was looking for something like this to wear under my rain jacket and couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. The medium fits perfectly. I definitely recommend this product! November 30, 2015
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
