Rated 5 out of 5 by from Layer First Hoodie The perfect clothing item! Great fit, beautiful design with detailing, and gorgeous jewel colors. This was my first Columbia brand purchase. I immediately bought three more Columbia tops and love everyone of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable,like butter This shirt is even cuter than expected! the material is super soft and hangs beautifully. I had a similar style shirt from Columbia and found the length was short in the body but this one is plenty long in the torso which is awesome! normally wear a size 4 and originally bought a small but sized down to an XS as the S was a bit blousy!Too cute not to keep!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not for curvy girls This is an 'active fit' so it clings to your body. It looks good if you are fit, no back fat or muffin top. I am giving it a high rating because I have seen it on other women and it looks good. It is also well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish layer Looks nice enough to wear out, yet put on to keep warm with other layers. Long in a good way in the arms and torso- as you'd want it to be. Fitted style. I'm sorry I didn't buy this for friends for Christmas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from new favorite shirt Love how this shirt feels and I really like the fit. Very feminine. I also like the hood and how high up the neckline is. Good for any activity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Terribly happy with this sweet top! I love wearing this top. It's close fitting without feeling tight or too revealing. I had to take 3" off the bottom but otherwise it fits me perfectly. A little too perfect. The thumb holes are actually a little short--and I'm small. I am 5'1" and purchased a medium.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Suffocating Neck High quality, great fit; but, the neck came up so high it felt like I was being suffocated. It was like having hands around my neck as soon as I put it on. Need to bring it back for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute top- a little short I am about 5'7" and 120lbs. The small was way too wide on me and the length of the top was too short. It came down to about the top of my pants and then flared out on the sides. I tend to run into this problem quite often and usually take in my tops to fit me but the seams on this top do not run along the sides and are outter seams so I am unable to take it in & will be returning it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute hoodie, great fabric, weird fit This was a really cute piece, could see it in my fall hiking wardrobe. However, it was way too long on me. I am 5'5" 125lbs. so not petite. It is going back. I must not be sized for Columbia. I ordered 5 items and they all had fit issues.
