Women’s Dotswarm™ II Fleece Full Zip Jacket - Plus Size is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 59.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort, Function, and Fashion I love this jacket! I’m heavier on top and usually have problems with jackets fitting comfortably, but this jacket was true to size. It’s very fashionable and the color is beautiful. I’ve never felt so glamorous running errands with yoga pants and a jacket before!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty, waiting to see if it works I purchased this jacket in XL because I have a snow trip to Wyoming and needed winter clothing. The interior of the jacket felt strange with the patented technology but am looking forward for its use in cold weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice The pockets ate set back q little further than I'm used to but I've only ever own benton springs line before. I do not regret buying this at all. The inside is a bit flashy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant Jacket Love the jacket. Its warm all by itself and thin enough to wear under my coat for extra warmth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great jacket Overall, I really like this jacket. It is warm, functional and has a great fit. However, the product picture is deceiving. I thought I was getting a dark grey (charcoal) coat. What I received is more of a light, heather grey. I decided to keep it, but really wish it would have been darker in color or not misled by the product picture!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft, light weight and warm I bought two of these, one in charcoal with black collar and one light blue with white collar. Charcoal one fit snuggly at first but stretched a little to just right after first wearing and then stayed that perfect size. Light blue one perfect from start and still is. Great fit and zippers good. Collars soft. Thin enough to layer under rain jacket but thick enough to stay warm in alone down to 35 degrees with light wind if you keep walking. I am 5' 8" and 200 lbs and bought 2X. Perfect length and cute enough in charcoal and light blue to earn some compliments from others on both.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dotswarm II Fleece is Comfy and Warm The fleece was a gift we knew couldn't miss with since the recipient has one in a different color and loves it. This one was no different. She said it keeps her warm and toasty whether there is a chill in the air indoor or out. She couldn't have been happier with the Dotswarm II Fleece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this by accident and I am SO glad I did! I have a dozen fleece jackets, all with my employer logo on them. I was looking for an inexpensive fleece jacket for when I didn't want to be asked about what I did there, and whom I knew there. I certainly wasn't looking for anything with a fancy lining. I didn't realize how wonderful that lining is! Since it runs a little bit small, it's great for throwing on under a regular jacket if you need a very warm under layer (Eagles' Superbowl parade was COLD, and I'm thrilled that I thought to put this under my jacket! I was toasty warm, and didn't complain once about the cold. I only wish they had them in solid black!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Columbia Jacket Purchase I am so happy with my lightweight Columbia jacket I recently purchased online. The store didn't have the one I wanted and I found this one online. I wish the fit was a little looser but I still love it anyway

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money! This jacket is perfect for the crazy Mississippi weather in the winter. It is perfectly warm when it’s cold but when it isn’t that cold outside, you don’t burn up in it either. It features an adorable fur collar that I’ve gotten a ton of compliments on. I am extremely happy with my purchase in all honesty & plan to order another color as well!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Probably the best fleece jacket you can get. And I say this solely because most fleece jackets have a fleece interior - which is just plain dumb for a jacket as all it does is create friction and static on your shirt. The interior of this Dotswarm jacket is Omni-Heat reflective material, which is mostly smooth and frictionless with the added benefit of being slightly warmer than a regular fleece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Omni Heat Reflective Shield Works Great Light and warm. appears sturdy, too. a little small in the shoulders.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and light I like my new omni heat fleece. It is light but warm. The zippered pockets are a very big and a bit weird as they are placed a bit different than usual, further back instead of the front, but all in all I'm happy with it and it kept me warm during my travels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dotswarm 11 Fleece Full zip I love this jacket, it's lightweight and if you're going shopping and don't want a heavy jacket it's the jacket to be wearing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is ok I ordered a size 3 XL and it was true to size I gave it to my mother in-law for a birthday gift who is way smaller than I am and it fit her well and she loves it so that’s all that really matters I love Columbia products so I just brought a similar one in the men size and can’t wait for it to get here

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good jacket I really like this jacket. I normally wear a l/xl but because I'm over 6' foot the sleeves are always to short and the jacket doesn't seem long enough for me I got a plus size. Almost the same feeling but I do like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm Works well for warmth which is what I wanted. Just a little bulky, and the pockets were too far back on each side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dotswarm ll fleece jacket Nice color, size is accurate, light to wear but provides warmth from the dots. The red orchard is very pretty and goes well with the gray collar.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not realy warming Very thin fabric. The isolation doesn't help because its too thin to keep me warm. very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Fleece While I was expecting a red, it's more like a dark pink. Love the fuzzy collar and the inner heat system. I'm also glad that I read the reviews and upsized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Hockey Games I purchased this coat to wear to my son's indoor hockey games. At a tournament this weekend, I saw other moms in their winter coats, hats, and gloves. I was warm and cozy in my Columbia coat. For a lightweight coat, it kept me warm and the pockets were roomy for my hands. My only complaint is that I really wanted a red coat. The coat looks red on the internet, but it is really more of a hot pink (it is called Red Orchid). I bought a size larger than I am based on other reviews and their is room for bulky sweaters underneath. The sleeves are long enough for my 5'8" body.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fall jacket I bought this jacket to be worn in the fall months. It is pretty warm and cozy. I bought it specifically because it has the omni-heat and I wanted to have that feature in a fleece. So far I like it. The bluebell color is way lighter than what is pictured, though. I expected it to be a dark blue, but it isn't and I didn't want to go through the hassle of paying for return shipping to have the color changed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Womens Dotswarm II Fleece A nice fleece, but it runs true to size. At first I ordered up a size, and it was very large. I returned it and reordered. My size fits correctly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty but sleeves are short It is very pretty and fits well but the sleeves are not long enough. I would have given it 5 stars if the sleeve length was satisfactory. However, it keeps me warm and is light weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This jacket does it's job!!!! I work outside and have been looking for a jacket to keep me warm. I have tried many jackets and been unsuccessful, until I bought this one. I thought because it was very light that it wasn't going to work but it DOES!!!! The best part was that my hands kept warm just by tucking them in my sleeve cuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Jacket I have a Columbia Winter coat with the heat dots and love it so I thought I would give the light weight jacket a try. A great buy for quality and it keeps you toasty without the bulk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lightweight coat I wear this coat running to and from the car. It's very warm and lightweight. Knowing that Columbia runs small i purchased a larger size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from color I ordered the color black for the second time from online. The jackets where diffent stlyes but the color was the same. the color is more of a dark gray. I was hoping for a true black with this different style. Other than the color I like the fit and the warmth it provides.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good jacket at sale price The Mayan Green is much more teal than any shade of green. The fleece isn't near as thick as I expected but I caught it at the end of year sale and I'm happy with it for what I paid. Definitely buy a size larger. I am a perfect 20 and the 3X coat fits well with room for a sweatshirt or layers underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Warm but not hot I really love this jacket it is so warm, so cozy. I am allergic to alot of material that annoy my skin but this material feels soft and it moves with you. I love it with omni heat inside. If its chilly above 30 I can wear this alone and not be cold at all. I also love how in real cold weather the collar flips up and keeps my face warm without irritating it. Also on dressy nights I wear under a thinner coat and keeps me warm but dressy..I bought purple one with out Omni for other times. The material is so snuggly. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND...
