Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Fleece Jacket I bought 2 of these ones. One for me and the other one for my daughter. We both love it. I don't like the interior so much because it looks like a disco ball (reflective fabric) but it keeps me warm. if I zip it all the way then you won't see the reflective fabric. I got size small - I am 5'2 and 116 lbs

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good I have this in two colors. I'd prefer it without the fur if I were to do it again. I overall like it and keeps me warm. It's a little stiff so doesn't allow as much flexibility and movement as I would like. But overall a good looking light zip up. Also ran slightly big for me. I usually would get small but needed xs to fit nicer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is recommendable! I ordered this because I wanted a good quality and warm jacket. It runs a little big, but that's all good. It is also true to color and feels super soft!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returned without a second thought I was VERY disappointed with this product. It isn't red - it's a magenta or some shade of pink. It sits a little too short on the waist and the fleece is very stiff and awkward. I returned it the very next day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful Notes If you normally wear a small get a medium if u normally wear medium get large and if you normally wear large get extra large. The coat is nice quality and warm and stylish I love this coat and it's on sale right now which is awesome, great service with the customer service, it was only a day behind and it was due to the snow. I highly recommend this coat and any omni heat coat/coat from Columbia. It's worth rhe money and it's not bulky and can wear it to work and drive in it and move around and the sleeves are good length and the coat is the right length it the inside that is a little smaller than a normal large or medium or small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great warm Jacket Love this Jacket very warm, was surprised how it has like a tinfoil material in the front in back inside. Really holds the warm in. Wear a 6-8 and ordered the medium and still have room for a sweater or sweatshirt. Great fitting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seam under armpit is uncomfortable The material and construction are top quality you expect from Columbia. However, the double edge binding seam that extends from the neck and under the armpit is very bulky and annoying. You sure wouldn't be able to put a light weight sweater on under the jacket. It felt as if your arms couldn't lay flat next to your side. It also made the arms feel restrictive if reaching forward. I hope this helps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Red Orchid is not red! Everything about this zip-up is great besides Red Orchid is not red, it is more pink then red. The inside is Omni-heat so it has the reflective material on the inside which is kind of flashy. Material is very warm and fits great, true medium.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! Works wonderful for outdoor runs and keeping warm on Bay nights. Runs a little large, but the drawstring at the bottom works well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little disappointed I bought this fleece to replace my old Columbia fleece that I had for years. I love Columbia fleeces (and other products) because they are warm and have zippered pockets which is great for the gym and being active outside. I thought this fleece would be an upgrade because the torso is lined with omni heat. It is very warm through the torso and I like that. My only issue is the quality of the fleece. It is stiff and already looked "aged" and worn fresh out of the box. It seemed to be lower quality fleece than the fleece I was replacing from years before and I wasn't all that excited about wearing a fleece that already looked worn out. It is warm and a pretty color but I expect more from Columbia products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket! This is such a cute jacket. Great fit. Warm, just right for spring. I bought the Plum color (love it) in medium and it fits true to size. I love the fluffy grey color. And it's warm with the Dotswarm II technology. I hope they keep making it because I'd love another color. I get compliments on it and that's rare for a fleece jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I think I'm in love I decided to add this fleece to my collection of Columbia wear and I am so glad I did. Yesterday, 48 and sunny: walk the dog and it was perfect(thin long sleeve tee underneath), standing in the sun talking to the neighbors I actually got a little to warm, but no worries as this does have breathability. This morning 34 and sleet.. I had on a heavy sweatshirt and put this dotswarm on with my rain jacket to venture out with the dog again. I was toasty warm. I must say that this fleece exceeded my expectations. I have much older Columbia fleece I adore but this one has me head over heels in love.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light jacket I bought two of these. The blue & the red. Blue exactly as pictured red has a bit of a pink undertone to it but still nice. The only reason I didn't give these a total 5 star rating is the zipper. It's a bit of pain to get started. I'm 5'6" 115 lbs small fits very well. Been using them for " in between " coat and sweater walking my dog 3 miles a day. They work great. Warm, soft, not to thin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I bought this jacket as a winter substitute for my Benton Springs fleece jacket, which I generally wear when in the spring/fall when it's 65-75 degrees, as opposed to 50 or below. I fell in love with the Omni-heat lining on my Lay-D Down coat (which I've also reviewed), so when I saw that Columbia made a fleece with omni-heat, I knew I had to get it. It's very light and comfortable, and not so thick that I can't wear it under my Lay-D Down coat when it's extra cold outside. What I love about the Omni-heat lining is that it keeps you warm without making you sweat -- I layered a sweater, this fleece, and my coat for when I recently visited Steamboat Springs, CO in January, and I never once broke a sweat, even when I went on a two mile hike. It fits true to size -- I generally wear Mediums and that's what I got, and it fits nicely, not too tight and not too loose. I highly recommend this jacket if you're looking for a layering fleece or something for the slightly warmer but still chilly end-of-winter days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product protects you from the cold. This product keeps me warm at places that are cold especially at work. Also, I love using this product because the quality is great and the manufacturer doesn't lie about the features it has.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Golf! I've already tried this jacket out on the course and it's perfect for chilly days. Normally, I layer up so much that I can't move, but this is great and I love the collar for a little extra warmth. I can definitely tell the reflective lining is working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought 6 of these jackets I bought 2 for each of my two daughters and 2 for myself. We all LOVE them! The colors are awesome and the fit is true to size. We love how we can cram the jacket into a large purse or backpack super easy, and its is not bulky. It keeps us warm without sweating and your body temperature really does radiate thru the omni-heat lining. My daughters are excited to uses these jackets to run around on campus going to classes. They're stylish and look so cute on different body types!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs large Despite what the fit says, these jackets run large. I haven't worn the item as I intend to return it for a smaller size. I ordered a Medium that's too large.
Date published: 2015-12-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits small The jacket fits OK if only wearing a Tshirt or thin shirt under it. Living in MN I tend to wear much heavier sweaters and sweatshirts. The jacket does not fit comfortably over them so had to return to try get a larger size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful color and warm I love the color. It is very light weight but makes you warm especially here in Manitoba. The sleeves are longer and I like it. I'll be wearing this everyday with my winter jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super! Again I didn't know what size to buy as I don't have a Columbia store nearby and the reviews were conflicting. Since the black had only S left in stock, I went with that. I'm 5'8" with long arms, normally 6-8, have Columbia M outerwear and some S fleeces. This in S was the right size, the sleeves were long enough and it wasn't even fitted. Very happy with the purchase, have been wearing it since it came a few days ago!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This was just alright The product is soft. It is a nice dark black color. But it is not what I expected. The sleeves seemed too short for a medium. The fabric attracts everything around, which is a nightmare in my household because I have pets. When I lint roll, not everything comes off. Very frustrating. I can say, however, that I love the zippered pockets! I've heard wonderful things about Columbia, and this was my first purchase. I'm not very impressed. I went with a smaller jacket to test the waters before I purchase a heavy winter coat. Not sure if I would purchase this brand again.
Date published: 2015-02-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sharp looking jacket Very nice looking jacket that really fits as I wanted. My only disappointment was that it is not as warm as I expected, being rated for "winter" wear. Maybe it's just not intended for Michigan winter?!
