Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cozy and Toasty The first day I received this I put it on and took it for a spin. I live in New England and it was 38 outside. This fleece kept me warm and cozy. I didn’t layer and have been just wearing it daily over my tops. I love the fact that it also has a good. It is very rare that I find a fleece with a hood let alone one mybsize that fits well. I wish the sleeves were a little longer though and/or had the thumb hole. My mum even says I’m killing it because I’ve worn it every day since getting it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice Very nice jacket! Love the zippered pockets. Runs true to size although I would've liked for the sleeves to have been about an inch longer. Love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it but the zipper.. I love this jacket, its perfect thickness, fits amazing, I love the high front but the zipper is so difficult to get started to zip the jacket that I dread putting it on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from fit, comfort, and design falls short I was a huge fan of your previously designed benton spring hoodies (they were all that I would wear over the course of the chilly, upstate NY winters) and highly recommend to friends/family. I adored the long length, flattering style (non-boxy), long sleeves (great for putting over gloves in the winter), wide arm holes, and the zipper design (allowing me to wear my hoodies often without the zipper splitting). As a loyal and returning costumer, I was beside myself with excitement when my new hoodies arrived today in the mail. However, after wearing the hoodie throughout the day, I was very disappointed. I will start out with the pros: the overall material continues to provide unlimited warmth and has a nice and cozy feel, however, cons: the size (XL) that I have always ordered in the past is significantly tighter in the shoulders, the arm holes are much narrower and sleeves are significantly shorter in length, the zipper has already split (bc they have gone with a 2 zipper system, which lacks in durability), and the zipper starts much lower on the jacket, which makes the hoodie a tighter fit around the waste/butt area (not as flattering, more boxy shaped, unlike previously designed 13' 14' hoodie). Unfortunately, I will not purchase this winter staple to add to my winter collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice jacket I really like this jacket. I found it runs a bit smaller than some of the other Columbia products I own, but I also wanted to give myself some extra space to wear sweaters under this! It is a great length and the sleeves are also long enough! (short sleeves are a life-long struggle of mine) It is just heavy enough, definitely not a middle of the winter coat, but I got it for late fall/early Spring. Also nice for travel as it can roll up pretty small. Very happy with the product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect jacket for fall I bought this long fleece jacket to keep warm once the weather turned cooler as I work outdoors. It fits nicely and is very easy to move around in. The fleece is very soft and the jacket is incredibly comfortable.
Date published: 2017-09-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Fall. The coat is a lovely dark dusty blue. Very well made. Nicely finished seams, sturdy zippers, lush soft fleece. Perfect to wear on a brisk Fall day in true ‘upstate’ NY to watch my grandson’s soccer game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Coat! I really do love this coat, but the colors weren't to my liking. I did return it. The coat is true to size and very comfortable. I would recommend it to my friends!
Date published: 2017-09-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat, color and hood a bit off I love this coat, it is cozy, soft and well made. The color is a bit off - it looks black on the website, but appears more charcoal gray/faded black in reality. Also, the hood is HUGE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Benton Jacket I've worn Columbia products thanks to my son who lives in Alaska and my Navy spouse (issued jackets). They are wonderful and keep this Florida girl warm in all kinds of cold weather. (I get cold below 75 degrees)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best most comfiest I have 2 of these and they are great. Good enough for a cold fall night or just lounging around the house. Love the extra length and thickness. Quality comfort!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this hoodie! I love this hoodie, I needed something light weight but not too light weight. This hoodie is perfect,especially for Chicago indecisive weather! It's not bulky and it's roomy to move around in. It's flattering for a plus size figure and the hood is a super plus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Carolyn - Upper Marlboro MD Love this jacket. Keep me warm and the length is wonderful! I ordered a size 1X and it fits good with room for a sweater.
Date published: 2017-02-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the length of the coat! I have 2 toddlers so it is great when constantly having to bend down to pick them up! I am glad I ordered a size down. Per the sizing chart I should have ordered a 2X, but went with my gut and ordered the 1X. It fits appropriately and is still roomy. It will be great for fall and spring weather in the Midwest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go 2 Jacket It's warm, functional, and just the right length. I wear a prosthetic leg, so I needed something that was not to snug around my hips. I would buy another if it was available in black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love this fleece! This could be the perfect fleece. Longer length & a hood is exactly what every other fleece in my closet has been needing....and trust me, there are several. An added bonus was I found it when it was 50% off makes me love it even more, although I'd probably pay full price for another one if they were available! It might run a bit on the larger side, but that's fine since I always dress in layers during the colder/cooler months. Another top-notch from Columbia for the girls with a little more of us to love...which doesn't mean we don't want quality, cute, warm, technical clothing which suit our active lifestyle!
Date published: 2017-01-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice fit, but runs ont he smaller side The sleeves are nice and long, the pockets are great too, but I found it to fun on the small side. Size up unless you prefer a more snug fit. The weight is nice.....not thin and not too thick. I would have liked it to be a bit longer But it's very good quality, not flimsy at all. Whish it came in white too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking jacket We purchased this jacket as a gift for our daughter in law. We bought a 1X based on the sizing info and it fit perfectly. It seems very well made and warm. She loved it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall I'm pleased with my purchase I have the regular short Benton fleece but I wanted a longer one with a hood so I figured this one would be perfect, the one I have is a 2X and it fits well. I ordered this in a 2X and it was a little on the large side but I'm impatient so I will keep it and just wear sweaters under it. It's warm and fits nice as it flatters the waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Julie H I love this hoodie...the coverage is good, it is comfortable and I like the hood to the jacket. The hoodie runs true to size. I can wear something heavier under it. I order a size larger just because I wanted to make sure that it would fit well.
Date published: 2016-12-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lightweight House Coat Surprisingly, it runs a little larger than normal for Columbia. It is cosy and warm. Soft. It would be a nice spring or fall coat outdoors. Or a nice home coat in winter.
Date published: 2016-12-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice jacket I purchased this jacket in black(best describe as an ashy black). It is really nice. Very warm and comfortable. I love the fact that when zipped all the way up it covers my neck and pockets have zippers as well. Reading most of the reviews had me very confused as far as sizing. Some reviews saying it was too big some saying too small. I usually where xl or 1x. I went ahead and purchase the 2x which is a little big on me I honestly could have went with a 1x. So as far as sizing I would say it fits true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the weather now I enjoy this jacket because the weather is changing and I can wear this now. Just right for the weather now.
Date published: 2016-11-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unflattering cut to get started... Ordered the black, which looks more like a dark gray or faded black. The jacket is not flattering and looks a bit like a sack. Also, the fleece is not soft. It looks cheap and I didn't like anything about it.
Date published: 2016-11-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the fall This fleece is just like the previous ones. This one is longer and has a hood for breezy days. I love it.
Date published: 2016-10-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this longer version I purchased this for the long days I work outside in the cold. I already have the shorter jacket versions of this heavy fleece, wanted something with a little more coverage. Has not been cold enough in my area yet to wear, I'm sure I will enjoy the extra coverage when it is.
Date published: 2016-10-26
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me This was a real miss for me. I found it to be TTS, but that's where the good ends. It's boxy and unflattering, hitting in a super weird place just a bit below my hips - too short to be a long jacket, too long to be a short jacket. Also, it has zero style. So, back it goes, and it's a real drag that you have to pay for your own return shipping - basically with the shipping both ways, i paid almost 20 bucks to try on a dull blob of a jacket. Won't be purchasing directly from Columbia again - not with a million other retailers that have much better shipping and return rates. Highly disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the price The picture makes it look like a nice thick jacket. Very thin, nothing to it. Worth about 20 dollars. Very disappointed in the quality.
Date published: 2016-10-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it! I bought this for winter. It isn't heavy fleece so I am hoping it will be warm enough. It is fitted somewhat in the waist area which is flattering and the sleeves are perfect. Not huge at the wrist and length is just right (even when you stretch your arms out).
Date published: 2016-10-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE this jacket I ordered this as a jacket to wear at one of my jobs as the room I work in is always chilly. It is perfect, nice and warm and a little more coverage than my regular Benton Springs fleece jackets. The fit was a little large on me, but leaves room for sweaters underneath. I will be getting more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Liked this coat alot I only had one issue it was and still is to big for me. My own fault for not returning it for the proper size ( and now I think it's to late) but it's just what I wanted otherwise Shame cause I have lost so much weight since then that now I definitely will never wear it and I really wanted a coat that covered my upper legs
Date published: 2016-01-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great with layers I Love this coat. I wanted something snuggly to wear over winter layers so I bought a size up. It's roomy like I wanted and looks great with boots and fleece leggings. I have literally been wearing it everyday.!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fleece Coat Yet! I am SO HAPPY with this coat. The fleece better quality than others in the same price range. What makes this coat stand out, though, is the cut is very feminine. Not just a bulky blob. I'm a plus-size gal and this coat looks great! I will buy from Columbia from now on! It does run small...so order one size up.
Date published: 2015-12-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs Large in Size I should have listened to the other reviews but I was scared that something would be "too small" yet again. I checked my ski parka for size and then ordered the same. Not a smart thing to do. This jacket truly runs large. I didn't re-order because I paid so much in shipping to return the jacket I didn't want to risk another one not fitting. I think I would have liked the jacket had it fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Columbia Fleece Jacket This jacket was a HUGE disappointment. Save your money and do not buy this. The fleece was very cheap. The zipper does not function well - it is a constant struggle - actually I have to have my husband zip this up because you basically cannot zip it up yourself. AWFUL! I bought the 1X which usually is very ample for me but I like having a lot of room when I drive. The sleeves are very tight. Poor sizing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with this jacket I live in New Mexico where we get tons of sunshine; nevertheless, the winds here can be extremely cold. We're not in the depths of winter now, where I will need my Columbia down parka, so I needed something in-between, and this fits the bill perfectly. It gives me satisfying warmth and is quite comfortable. Everything is well-made, it's light but seriously warm. I'm totally happy I bought this - and on sale, too!
Date published: 2015-12-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Columbia good I got this on sale because I wouldn't pay for this full price.. that's the brand driving. I do notice the quality of pockets and lining make it far better than other brands - it get 5 star.. we'll see how it wears (pilling, etc). I haven't washed it yet-- bought 2 for gifts as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great buy. Bought for my sister and she loves it!
Date published: 2015-11-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket, getting another one It's fleece, its comfortable -- great fall/spring or travel coat. What I love the most is that the pockets have zippers. When I travel I zip my pockets, and don't have to worry about my stuff falling out on the plane when I take my coat off! I wear it so much it is getting a little ratty. I was happy to see they are still selling this, and I ordered a new one!
Date published: 2015-11-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plus size runs large I ordered the 3X based on my measurements and the recommendation that it runs small, but it was basically a shapeless tent. I returned it and bought a 2X. The 2X is still a bit loose, but that is ok, as I'll be able to wear it over bulkier sweaters and sweatshirts. I am glad I purchased a smaller size, as this jacket is very warm and cozy.
Date published: 2015-11-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just buy it! No regrets! I don't go anywhere without this hoodie now. THE best hoodie I ever had. Thought at first it was an odd material, but WOW, it comes out soft, and works well in the elements. Rain was beading off and it is quite wind resistant for a fabric hoodie. Nice and long and being able to unzip from the bottom works really well when you are driving.
Date published: 2015-11-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, I'm going to order another color... It's my go-to jacket.
