Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight layering Very nice light weight fleece. Great for layering, folds up small, takes up little room in backpack or suit case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light weight Needed to return this because it was too short in the sleeves, but I am 5'10". Otherwise probably nice for transisioning into spring

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great fleece I love Columbia fleece--this one is a great weight for the cool mornings of spring. They shrink so i leave all mine out of the dryer

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fit not what I expected I had ordered the same style a couple of months ago, the Breast Cancer version which fits great. Was surprised that this sweatshirt was cut different and found the arms to be tight but the fit everywhere else. I did return and even tried to see if there was something similar in Men's to exchange but no luck !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fleece jacket I loved the color and look of this jacket online but after I received it, it had bust darts that ruined the look of it in the front. They were not necessary as it is active wear. I returned it due to bust darts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute but a little large! It ended up looking really baggy and unflattering on me, but I gave it to someone else and it fit great! She loved it! It's really light so it would be great for cooler days but not so much the colder, bitter days outdoors. I'm not cold natured so it would have been great if I ordered my size! My mistake but now I know!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for bigger girls This fleece has darts so for large chests its very flattering. The inside of the shirt is not fleece so its very easy to put on over another.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Color The color is not red by any definition - it is coral. I like the fleece, but was disappointed in the color
Date published: 2016-12-13
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sleeves too short The size I ordered fits great except for the sleeves, they are more like 3/4 length. I also thought the sweater would be warmer than it is.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Will be returning all three shirts... too thin material
Date published: 2016-12-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight Fleece There's nothing special about this half-zip fleece pullover. The fabric is soft and warm as to be expected. I purchased the white and plum colors. The white is a nice off white, like a facial tissue. The plum is okay. Sleeve length is good. Fit is a little boxy, meaning that it hangs straight down from my large bust...no darts or tapering back toward the body. I'll have to put in my own tailoring to keep from looking dumpy. I would normally wear a 2x, but there were none in stock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOOVE LOOOVE! Great fleece warm but not thick. Great for layering. Very form fitting so go up a few sizes if you prefer them loose.
Date published: 2016-12-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from SaddleTramp I was a little surprised that the weight of the fabric was so light. It is very soft and comfortable. I'll will were a shirt under it for extra warmth. The colors are very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt I have three of these shirts and live in them in the winter. I wear a light layer, t-shirt top underneath for warmer winter days and wear a long underwear top underneath when it's cold. I just ordered another one as a stray cat sliced my newest one open with his claws trying to get away from me. He just got adopted by a new family so it was well worth the effort!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from WOMEN’S GLACIAL™ FLEECE III 1/2 ZIP I'm returning due to the fit. The collar area how it lay down... Size is definetly off I order a size up and still was more fitted than I like.
Date published: 2016-11-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft, fuzzy, warm - but a bit tight This pullover is everything you want in warm and cozy top. But it does run small across the chest. I am both plus sized and busty and so I can wear this alone - but I'd never be able to wear it with a layer underneath it unless I went up a size. Just as a note - it is tailored at the waist as well, so it is more fitted overall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love, love, love ❤ Love this fleece. I currently have 3. Perfect for cool nights. Packable and east to care for. Love the colors and sizing is true fit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light Layer This lightweight fleece is perfect when you just need a little something extra on a cool night or under a jacket. Nicely fitted and the Sea Salt goes with everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this I was looking for a 1/4 zip pullover fleece that wasn't to heavy but would still keep me warm. This perfect! I can wear comfortably alone or layer either way I'm sure to be warm and comfortable. And to that is important because I am always having hot and cold flashes and this just enough

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great as always I buy this fleece all year long when I see a color I like. I wear them as shirts and for hiking. They are light weight but warm. The cut is very flattering.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but wanted it to be great. I have one from a few years ago in XL but ordered a 1X in the two-tone green and black hoping it would be a little bigger. I should have ordered the 2X. The colors are nice. It's light and warm. I did need to wear a tank underneath since it's a little thin. My biggest complaint is the sleeves need to be longer. Overall it's ok but it will probably be the last I purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Fleece I love these fleece shirts. Lightweight, comfortable, great for layering. I like the fit, loose enough for comfort, but not sloppy. I came back for more colors. Haven't washed yet, so can't speak for how they launder.
Date published: 2015-10-30
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love look, fit and feel...just wish it was warmer! I love the look. I am 3x and it fits great. I just wish it was warmer! I had hoped it would be warmer than just throwing on a long sleeve T but no dice. It doesn't offer much warmth which surprised me since it is fleece. Every other Columbia product I have bought I have loved so I was disappointed that this didn't fully deliver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from travelling grandma Love this. Can wear alone or can put a top under it for contrast. Pretty both ways. The Mayan Green is gorgeous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Love these, I don't want to call it a sweatshirt, because it's not your average big bulky sweatshirt, but provides the same comfort and warmth. You can wear these with most anything and everywhere. Perfect shirt when it's chilly outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does what it is supposted to do I like this fleece, it is very light but keeps you warm when needed. The material is very soft, the quality is excellent. I have had higher priced items previously which couldn't reach the level of this product. Satisfied and happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Basic Solid well fitting basic that everyone should have multiples in their wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, comfortable - love it! This is a great top for cold days! Very soft and thin fleece but much warmer than heavier ones I have owned. Runs very small, however, so go up a size. I am a regular 16 in most clothing and the XL was way too tight. The 1X is just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KelseyC Loved this jacket. It's light enough to be worn all day and it's warm!!! Great quality!
Date published: 2015-01-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought 2 more I purchased one of these tops and loved it so much I bought 2 more. The top is nice and light and because I bought a size up I can put a tank or t-shirt under it for extra warmth. The top washes very nicely and looks great with the pants I also purchased. I just wish it had pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it; sized up Love the harbor blue color. Lightweight, yet warm. Sized up since the website said it runs small. Glad I did. Now I have an easy fit. Highly recommend.
Date published: 2014-12-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I ordered the 'red hibiscus' and it is a good product. The material is nice and I like to wear it as an extra layer under a jacket when it is windy or a little chilly out (I live in the Midwest where the weather can change at any given moment). I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for an extra layer to wear under a jacket or coat, a layer that is not too heavy. Also, the sleeves were a little (about half an inch) too short at the wrist.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product is well made and comfortable but is not true in color. From the picture on line, I expected a red shirt. The color name is red hyacinth but it is more coral or light orange. Very disappointing.
Date published: 2013-12-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not to heavy and not too light Great all around pullover that isn't too light that you don't feel warm but also isn't too heavy where you are sweating. It's a great for layering. Love the color also

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy Love the color and the fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and warm I purchased this pullover to wear over other layers. The fit is not constricting as are so many other products made today. I am very satisfied.
Date published: 2013-12-03
Rated 2 out of 5 by from product not the same. I ordered this product because my old one is/ was my favorite garment. The new one is longer, tighter and the collar is higher then then one I love had to send back.
