Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mid layer not a heavy layer Soft and comfortable, but was a lighter than I was anticipating. I thought I would use this as my heavier outer layer when skiing, but instead I have been using it as a mid-layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good layer This is a nice thin, but warm fleece for layering. It is true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great micro fleece top I love this top...I have several from 5-7 years ago, they were also mediums but ran a bit, 1/2 size larger? This Medium was a little sung. I will order a large next time. The quality and style is the best on the "market" and I searched.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Weight and Tappering This fleece top is light weight, warm and perfect for winters in the South, maybe not for winters in the North. I especially like the fit, some tapering which adds a feminine touch. I bought the sand. It goes great with blue or black pants. I am 5'5, 123 lbs and the small fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love these These are a great value and perfect to wear under coats in winter time to keep me warm. I just moved to a cold area and have bought these in every color. I also need to look semi-professional and these do the job. Also, everything came early even during Christmas time. Thank you Columbia. For reference. I am 5'9" 155 lbs. I ordered Medium and it fits me perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Thin & clingy I had read previous reviews & heard repeatidly this runs small so went up a size But it's also very thin for a fleece top so putting a loyer under makes nicer but then clings..... So if I were to buy again I would go up another size!
Date published: 2017-12-19
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very thin fleece Loved the look of this quarter zip online. Thought the price was too good to be true. When it came in the mail, I realized just how thin the fleece is. The material is more like a fleece t-shirt in thickness as opposed to a normal fleece quarter zip. It fits perfectly, but it is far from warm. Since I purchased the white one and the material is so thin, it’s actually see-through, which I wasn’t expecting. Looks cute, but isn’t functional for a winter in NY.
Date published: 2017-12-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylishly cozy I look for functionality first, but style should come a close second. This top filled the bill on both counts. It layers beautifully, adding that goldilocks 'just right' element beneath a jacket, vest or coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Cozy I love this fleece top. Comfortable and soft.
Date published: 2017-12-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this top! This is the perfect light weight fleece to wear around the house or outside on a mild fall day! I have a number in varied colors. I prefer the solid colors. Great fit and soft! Fits a bit small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thinner than expected The jacket was thinner than I thought it would be, but it is soft so that's good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome gift idea!! I bought this for my sister for Christmas and she absolutely loves it!! It’s super soft and durable! Definitely can’t beat it!!!
Date published: 2017-12-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sooooo comfy Super soft and warm layer while still breathable. Very slim - not at all bulky so easy to fit under a jacket. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
Date published: 2017-12-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right thickness Love this fleece! It is nice and thin so I can layer it over a light shirt for added warmth and no bulk. I will be able to comfortably layer this under additional light jackets as well. Very happy and would like to own more colors!
Date published: 2017-12-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Soft I received one of these for a Christmas present last year and I loved it so much that I ordered another one in a different color. It's so soft and washes up as if it were brand new.
Date published: 2017-12-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy Lightweight Fleece This is a very comfortable Fleece! Extremely soft! Just a touch tight for layering over a baselayer. It is fine for cool weather but definitely not warm enough for cold weather. I wore this on a backpacking trip and was chilly once temperatures reached the 50's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft, light weight fabric. Confortable, soft fabric with slightly elastic wrist band, which accommodates long and short arm lengths. No thumb hole though.

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!!
Date published: 2017-05-23
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 Very versatile and comfy This jacket is great! Super comfy and great for spring! Love the colors.
Date published: 2017-04-16
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!
Date published: 2017-04-15
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.
Date published: 2017-04-07
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.

Date published: 2017-01-03
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.
Date published: 2016-12-29
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.
Date published: 2016-12-27
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...
Date published: 2016-12-19
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.
