Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome 1/2 Zip This 1/2 zip is so warm and cozy. I love love love the colors of the teal, dark blue and cognac fleece. Medium fits me and my partner perfectly. I’m 5’9” and typically wear medium shirts and she’s 5’5” and typically wears a medium. Great quality and actually reasonably priced compared to in-store!!! 10 out of 10 would buy again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Will meet my needs Have not had a chance to wear this yet, but my assessment of it suggests it will meet my needs for the intended use. It is average in looks and quality. Lighter weight than I expected. Like hundr do of other such products out there being sold by everyone else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thinnest Material Ever I was super excited for my two 1/2 zips to come in, planning on wearing them hiking and during cold nights. I was extremely disappointed. THE MATERIAL IS VERY VERY THIN. So thin in fact that It can probably be very easily ripped by hand. I had higher expectations and thought the quality would be much higher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Fleece I absolutely love this fleece quarter zip! I throw it on and wear it to yoga. It's been washed over and over and has not lost its shape or gotten pills on the fleece. Highly recommend!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME I really like this thin fleece. I ordered the next size up because I want to wear layering underneath while camping, and I'm glad I did. I really like the color of blue w/gray. Happy with this purchase and I got it at a sale price.XL

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lite and simple I was kind of expecting this to be a little thicker but it's perfect and I would definitely recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight fleece This fleece is lighter than normal, which makes it great for spring days or summer nights. It looks sharp. I'm 5'4", 125lbs, 34B and the small fit great. The collar is larger than normal, so it's weird to wear it zipped all the way up but looks fine half-zipped up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute look! I do really like this 1/4 zip fleece although it is a little thinner than I thought it would be. The color is bright and beautiful and the fit is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Second Gift My husband bought me one of these when we were at Disney Springs and I liked it so well he bought me a second. They are perfect for outdoor wear with a shirt underneath, and look good enough to wear almost anywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable This product runs a size small, I typically wear a medium and so I ordered a large and it fits perfectly. This is a lightweight fleece and is very comfortable for all-day wear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fleece is too thin I bought this for my mom as a part of a present, and honestly I felt kind of bad when I gave it to her...the material is too thin and I don't think it's going to keep her as warm as I expected based on other fleeces I've bought from Columbia in the past...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Fleece! I purchased a size large in the Glacial Fleece lll Quarter Zip. I am 5'10" and 150lbs. This fits perfectly either with a base layer or without. I have several of these in different colors and they are a mainstay in my winter wardrobe. Actually in Idaho you can wear them most of the year. They are very comfortable and good looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely a Keeper Great weight for indoors or layering, excellent quality eg. seam finishing, construction, consistent fit (I have 3 of these), flattering fit with princess lines and bust dart. Love the eye popping colors, camellia, blue and plum and they hold through a number of washings. Cozy feeling and great length for movement. Stands up to washing and wear vey well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressive!!! I am impressed, that this thin fleece is super warm!!! I am a drivers helper for UPS, so I work outside in the snow, sleet & rain. I just wear the fleece over my short sleeve shirt & beneath my thin UPS jacket. I have yet to get cold!!! All of my children own the child size version of this fleece. They don't get cold, while wearing their's either. The product is great. I recommend getting a size larger, if you have long monkey arms. I always buy a size larger in Columbia, because the sleeves are always too short for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite all time fleece! I have owned a lot of fleece and this one has performed better than any other brand or style I've ever owned. I travel extensively with my family and I always have a Glacial Fleece in my suitcase and carry on. It great for all climates, layers perfectly, and it doesn't pill. Love, love this fleece.
Date published: 2016-11-20
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very thin jacket I was excited to get this jacket because I thought it would be good for fall or spring when you don't need a coat but don't want just a shirt either. I have a Columbia fleece full zip jacket that I love so I thought this would be similar since it's fleece as well. However, I was shocked to see how thin the fabric is, and that it is half as thick as my regular Columbia jacket. Do not buy this jacket if you are looking for something that will provide any kind of warmth at all.
Date published: 2016-11-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! The fit is True to size. Colors are as shown. I am 5'9" 134lbs and the Medium fits perfectly. I can layer it as there is some room to wear something under it; it is not super snug and you are not constricted as the material gives. The fleece is soft and I can't wait to wear it! The zipper is nice as it allows you to put the collar up or down. I really like everything about this fleece.
Date published: 2016-10-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light jacket I really love this jacket. It was lighter than I was expecting and the fleece isn't super thick but it is a great jacket to wear when you want something light and comfortable. I got it in sea salt and it is a beautiful color. I got so many compliments on it the first time I wore it. I will probably be ordering something a little heavier next time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointing VERY thin fabric....I could see through it which is not what you would expect from fleece. I am disappointed with the quality and will be returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very cozy I ordered the Light grape, and the Ruby red. The Ruby red is actually a magenta colour and I like it alot. The light grape is a blue and I like it too. Very cozy and warm. Bought it on sale at half price for an upcoming trip to Iceland this winter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just alright I absolutely love having thumb holes on my sleeves. I will not order this item again. Also, runs small, not comfortable :(. Giving it away to goodwill.
Date published: 2016-01-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Fleece In full agreement with other reviewers that this fleece runs a bit small. I am consistently a L in Columbia tops/coats, and I ordered a L fearing the XL would be too big. This fleece is o.k., but is quite thin. Sea Salt is much more 'white' versus 'off white'.
Date published: 2016-01-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Glacial Fleece top - just right Love this product, the light weight and soft texture feels great. I ordered 5 different colors that were available, wish there were more darker colors. I wear fleece tops every day in the winter thru spring. Columbia has the best, love the wider colar. Will buy more when there are additional colors and sales. Take one star off for color availability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thin and comfy! I ordered this to wear as a thin fleece layer while hiking. It works great for that function. Its also become one of my favorite winter house layers as well. The neck is pretty long, but this isn't bad to me because it can really protect your neck if its cold, and it folds down nicely if it is unzipped. Runs true to fit, I'm 5' 5" 130 lb and a small fits great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping Warm Fabric is wonderful. If you want to wear it over a heavier layer size up. Over a quick dry material it is perfect. Nice cuff trim piece makes for a clean finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This is perfect for a light chill. I was dreaming of wearing this on my drive home from work the first cool fall day. It is very comfortable and perfect with a light t shirt. I got another I loved it soo much.
Date published: 2015-10-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Pullover I purchased this fleece in the Purple Lotus/Light Grape color for a summer trip to Alaska and it was PERFECT! I loved the lightweight feel of this fleece. The quality was excellent, and I really liked the vibrant colors. After reading some of the other reviews, I decided to order one size up and I'm very glad I did. It was comfortable and just a little roomy in all the right places. If this fleece had been too snug or body-hugging, I'm not sure how flattering it would have been on my petite curvy figure. Can't wait to pull this pullover back out this winter!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very thin "fleece" This is definitely a fleece-like material on the outside, not all the way through. The inside is like a smoother polyester. Overall, this is more like a shirt, not like what I would be looking for in buying a "fleece", which is soft and THICK! For winter. This is a fall shirt, plain and simple. For that, it's pretty good. Don't expect soft on the inside. This shirt is not.
Date published: 2015-01-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Fleecy On Inside This fleece is super cute, color is exactly like pictured. I got this thinking that it would be fleece lined on both sides but the inside of this is not fleece. It's a smooth fabric, still warm but not exactly what I was expecting. I'd give it a 5 star review if it was fleece on the inside as well. I ordered a medium and it fits great, not too tight, not too loose, it's definitely a flattering cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, warm, light weight top! These tops are great! They are perfect by themselves on a slightly cool day but even better with a long sleeve t-shirt underneath on a cold day. They are great lightweight solutions for the active individual. Great fit, true to size! Bought two, will buy more! Purchased for my daughter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Snuggly This product is a classic 1/4 zip fleece. It is what it is - soft and comfy. However, the fit on Columbia tops in general is all over the board. I ordered a L in this one to fit my 5'10" frame. The sleeves are short and the length across the back is tight. I run into this a lot with Columbia. Sometimes I will exchange for a XL and then it looks like I'm wearing a tent, but at least the sleeves are long enough and the I don't feel like I'm going to bust through the shoulders like the Hulk. I am normal build and I love Columbia, but don't feel like wearing tents in all their tops. And then 1/2 of the L items I order fit perfect.
Date published: 2014-04-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! I love this fleece! it's super warm & soft without a bulky feel. You can just feel the good quality when you put it on! I ordered a size small and it fits great! not too tight ( so its easy to put a baselayer under) but not overly loose. I would defiantly recommend this fleece to a friend.
Date published: 2014-03-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fleece, but its NOT red Columbia seems to have its OWN version of the color red. This is the second time I've ordered a red top and both of them have a pinkish/orangish hue to them. They are a fine color (I kept both products) but they absolutely are NOT red. The fit is good for me, the fabric is a not as heavy as I was expecting, but in the Pacific Northwest, we need a variety of outerware to be comfortable as the weather is so changeable. Given these drawbacks, I would still recommend the product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not As Expected Purchased this 1/2 zip to wear over a shirt. I ordered a medium to ensure it would fit with room. To my surprise, it was extremely small and fit way too snug. This works more as a base layer as it is a very close fit. It is also a very thin fleece in terms of material. Not sure I would even rate it at 100. As a layer on top of a shirt, it did keep me warm. Recommend you consider ordering one to two sizes up from what you normally wear to ensure you have plenty of room.
