Men’s Cascades Explorer™ Full Zip Fleece Jacket is rated out of 5 by 80.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MinSilverSpring from My son lives in this jacket This fleece jacket is my son's uniform for about 6 months out of the year. It never loses its shape, it's consistently warm but not too warm. It's light enough to leave on in classes but warm enough for the adventures outdoors. Pockets are deep enough and the zippers are really high quality. Love this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Misti3058 from Fantastic Quality at a Good Price!! I got this jacket for my husband, who is very picky about what he wears and he loves this jacket---luckily I bought him another one in a different color too. My husband is 5'8" tall and about 190 lbs thus on the short n stocky side. This jacket was a great fit as an XL, not too long that it goes to his knees or fits his waist like a girdle. He has the room he wants with a great and manageable length. He loves the zipper pockets too so he can wear it no matter what bottoms he has on. He wears them for our son's soccer games--usually 2 games over 3 hours and it kept him warm and dry when we had the sprinkle of rain with big winds coming off the lake shore, the rain just shook off and he was dry n warm inside. Overall a great buy for the northeastern fall weather and definitely recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by tmkm130 from Not what I expected I was hoping for a soft fleece jacket and found out that the material wasn't very comfortable. I'm disappointed because it was a gift for my Dad and he was polite and kept it. I would have returned the product. The sale price was great though. I wish the description was better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beezer12 from Great fleece This is the fourth Columbia fleece that I have purchased and it is another great option on cool days. It fits great and I really appreciate the drawstring waist. It's roomy enough for a base layer underneath or you can wear it under a windbreaker. I like the light blue color too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DennyJJ from Great and Surprisingly Warm! I bought this jacket a few weeks ago and with the up and down of the weather this jacket has been great! I thought it wouldn’t be warm from the looks of it but this jacket really keeps the warmth in. Columbia was great...the first one I bought had a hole in the pocket and I returned it and got this one. The quality is great and the color is amazing. Great experience and definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Diane53 from I ordered a new one cause I couldn't wear out the old one I have worn Columbia fleeces since I moved to New Hampshire. Perfect for layering under a soft shell or wind breaker or wear alone. Make sure to buy it roomy enough for a sweater. My old fleece is still worn after 6 winters! No broken zippers or wear, still looks good. I just wanted a new color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kevincorey from Woud you expect anything different? As Always with Columbia this Fleece is PERFECT. Just warm enough for the chilly mornings but not overbearing if the temp rises a bit. The fit is always Perfect from columbia and I love getting colors that are just a little different, It also works great for golf which was a great suprise. Not too much fabric so there is no issue swinging!

Rated 4 out of 5 by coronado2170 from Nice light weight jacket I bought this for my son who is 6' 192lbs., 43 1/2 inch chest. I was worried about it running small, but it turned out to be a perfect fit. It's more of a zip up sweatshirt than a jacket, but nice for 50-60 degree weather. Maybe a little colder if you layer it with a long sleeved shirt. Good quality for its $50 price tag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeanMN from A Great fleece that's a step up from the classic Steens Mountain I'm a big fan of Columbia's Steens Mountain 2.0 full zip fleeces, though I was looking for something that was a little bit higher quality then that. I found it in the Cascades Explorer. The qualities which differentiate this fleece from the Steens, are: this one has more of a fitted / active fit, compared with the Steens' slightly more casual fit. The fleece is also finer and less fluffy, but still soft - which I think makes it look a bit more upscale. I also like that it has a 3rd pocket located at chest on the left side. Regarding warm, I would rate both of them about equal Overall this is a great fleece jacket. It fits great (size M, 175lbs, 6'0), is soft and warm, and it looks very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NachoJones from Great jacket Bought this to replace my old L.L.Bean fleece and I am really happy. The extra ticket on the breast is nice feature. The inside pockets are nice too. Lots of room. The draw string on the side is nice. Stays out of the way. I bought this during the winter sale. So it's a great jacket for the price. Might be a little pricey at full price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MrOwl08 from My Go-To Jacket Comfortable, durable, and functional. Keeps the chill off when temps fall into the low 60s, and is as much cover as I need into the low 40s. For most of the Texas winter, this is my "coat". I haven't had occasion to use it in a layered fashion, but I would expect it would work well. It isn't form fitting, but it is thin enough that it shouldn't be too bulky under a coat. Bottom line: this is an essential piece of fall/winter gear for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by papadave from too thin for warmth for fleece it was very thin material and would not be warm enough for our winters. I like to wear fleece as a layer under a coat when I go out and this just would not be what I would want. I had ordered a Steen's Mountain previously and was hoping this be warm yet, but is was far thinner material, I ordered another Steen's mountain fleece but was looking for something a bit heavier weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kenny29t from Comfortable and warm I had already bought this product for my self, so when I was looking for something for my fiance, I ended up getting her the same thing I bought for myself. It worked out great since she is a 2x in woman's. My XL size is the same as her 2X size. No brainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Drew100 from Good lightweight jacket Good all around lightweight jacket. Nice athletic look with clean lines so it can be worn most everywhere. Has a good zipper and inside pockets. It's a little longer past the waist with an adjustable elastic helps keep the chill out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nik1176 from Great Fleece! I really like Columbia fleece jackets, this one is no exception. However, the one thing that seems to be gone from them is the lining which makes putting them on and taking them off a little tricky when wearing long sleeves as the fleece creates a bit friction to the sleeve causing it to bunch up. If it had the lining this would easily be 5 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Erik88 from Sleeves too long This fleece jacket fit good, except the sleeves were too long. The thin cuffs on each sleeve barely hold on to the wrists. Also, it seems the quality of the jacket is okay, not great, especially for the sleeves and zippers. I will be returning.
