Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fleece jacket I just received the package and didn't have a chance to wear it yet. I usually wear medium but ordered small after reading the reviews. If you like a slimmer fit, definitely go with one size small.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Small bigger than medium I bought this as a small, when I received it it's actually bigger than an older zip-up medium. Would've preferred it to actually be a small and maintain some of the qualities of the older design (zip-pull tightener at waist, elastic at wrists)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Overall this product is everything I wanted and was looking for. Love all the Columbia products I have bought and it has been a lot. I have purchased from your web site, 3point5 and the store I work at and have yet to be disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fleece with a Nice Pricetag I've worn it just about every day since it showed up on my doorstep. Great mid-layer, love how the zipper comes down farther than average fleece, makes for easy taking off and putting on. Sizes, I find, run about a size and change big. I wear L in Patagonia, North Face and Medium Columbia. Fits well if slightly large. Can't do better for the price. I am a huge Columbia Fan, will continue to buy their awesome products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted I love the jacket. It is of quality materials and make and it attractive and comfortable. I like the chest pocket but would prefer side pockets. That is my only criticism. Otherwise it is a fine garment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Light Fleece Great light duty fleece, good quality, seems to hold up very well during everyday use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great This is a great midweight fleece. It does run large - I am 5'11"/170 and the Size S is perfect. I initially tried a Size M and it was way too big.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big variances in fit Ordered three - all mediums. Charcoal fit great. Marine Blue and Navy measured out like larges. Significant (one plus) inch differences in length of arms and back and across chest and waist. Disappointing that the fit was so different and that the two mediums noted above fit and measured like larges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fleece This fleece does all is supposed to do. Comfortable and basic. It is great under a shell or just for lounging around. Like the chest pocket for cell phones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right This jacket is very comfort and warm. I wore it while attending my son's soccer game in 48 degree weather and I felt very comfortable the whole time.
