Women’s Optic Got It™ III Half Zip Fleece is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warmer half zip The quality of this half-zip fleece was good and the fit snug, so definitely a layering item for colder weather use. Size small was a good fit for 36C and 110#, but a tad long for 5'4". I passed the top on to my daughter who is much taller.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing This was VERY small. Maybe the wrong tag was sewn into the jacket??? This is not wearable and will now become a gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Look! This is a very trim and stylish top. It reminds me of something Emma Peel might have worn while driving her Lotus Elan through the drizzly UK countryside. Not skintight, but just the right amount of nipped in waist and forgiving hip length. In fact, the solid fabric panels on the sides visually nip in the waist even more to a very pleasing effect! I'm 5'2 106 lbs and usually wear a small. However, I bought this top in medium since it runs a bit small. It is a medium weight fabric and is best for very cold days. The option of unzipping it a bit works well when entering the warm indoors. It would probably also be great layered over a tank top. Not sure why it’s called a “Jacket.” I’d just call it a sweater or top. Bought a second one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Jacket that fits like a shirt I bought one of these "jackets" in the Columbia store, but wore it as a shirt, and it is so comfortable, and fits so well, that I had to buy another in a different color. I couldn't find it on the website, as I didn't realize it was a jacket. I think it should be classified as a shirt, but still, would definitely recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved it, couldn't keep it This was on sale, and was not available in Medium. The reviews said it ran small, so I thought a Large would be okay. They were so wrong. It ballooned on me around the waist, and looked terrible. I had to return it. I think a Medium would have been fine, and I loved the way it looked (except for the hugeness around the waist) and the way it felt with the fleece inside. I just couldn't wear it looking like that. I even considered taking it in myself, but for this price, I didn't want to cut it up and find out it still didn't look right. If they get these in Medium again, I may try again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish it had pockets and was longer This jacket is very comfortable and as mentioned has nice long sleeves. It would be absolutely perfect if it had pockets and was a little bit of a longer fit. I would still buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Activewear This is my FAVORITE active wear top for winter. It's warm without making me sweaty & breathes wonderfully due to the well placed panels. The half-zip is perfect for warming or cooling as needed. Well made. After I bought the first one and wore it, I immediately ordered another one in a different color. Would highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the fit Feels great to wear, soft and figure flattering. It runs just a little small, but not enough to order a size up.
Date published: 2015-03-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it The shirt/jacket fits well. It is fitted and soft in the inside and inner neck, I usually just where it with a tank underneath on cooler days. I'm 5'2" and about 116ish, small in the chest. I bought a small in the oceanic and love the color and it fits well. My only complaint is that it appears to give me lovehandles where the grey is. But I use it as an inner layer when bundling up and with the longer sleeves and smooth outside quality its easy to pull on my heavier jacket thats lined in fleece (doesn't bunch up)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit like a charm. Zipper is perfect. Fit is perfect. Material is soft and wears well throughout the day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the color..... This looks so good with black ski pants. I love the color and I love the shape of the sleeves at the hand. It covers a bit longer onto the top of the hand and makes gloves that much warmer for skiing. It is a good functional piece.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Top I bought this top again because I love the design detail and the fabric. I wish it was still available in 1X as it runs small. I also experienced some shrinkage in the length of the body and sleeves in the one I bought previously. I will air dry my new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and flattering This top is a great winter option used alone or in layering. The way it tapers through the waist is very flattering. It is soft and fleecy inside, next to your skin. My only negative comment is that some of the seam work is sloppy, especially around the cuffs. There are numerous loose thread ends that haven't been tied off, and I am afraid they may unravel at some point. I would still buy this top in an additional color, none the less.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Looking Wonderful top - a nicer looking "sweatshirt" layer. Love the marbled deign and very cozy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfy This top is ridiculously soft! I like the stretch panels. I would have ordered a medium if I had realized they are in the arms (I think the arms on Columbia clothing run a bit narrow for me). I also like that the sleeve extends over my hand on the top for a little extra warmth:)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the cozy feel, not a fan of the fit There isn't a lot of elasticity in this pull over, and the sides are cut a bit strange, so they aren't very slimming around the waiste. It needs more stucture or a material with more stretch to hold its shape when you wear it, but its super coze and I LOVE the sleeves. I'm 5'9, and sleeves are never long enough for me! These are great. So if you are ok with less flattering cut for cozy and comfortable- its for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great product to stay warm and work out with in the winter r I purchased the Black color and love it just as it is. I wanted to buy the other colors but was concerned about how much contrast the there would be with the side panels. I hope they make this product with the heather as the side panels as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute and warm The pattern is a cute variation on a nice knitted outside fabric, the fleece part is the lining inside. This makes it great for doing this outdoors and not getting all kinds of dirt/etc stuck to the fleece. I wear a medium and the fit is comfortable and snug but not too bulky. The collar is a bit high which is nice to zip up when it's brisk and cold out. My only negative on this is the zipper seems a little light and not substantial. I'll have to see how it wears over time, but I'm slightly worried about it breaking or catching. So far after 2 washings it comes out looking great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy it again. I love my new 'optic got it', the color, the fit, it is very flattering. I have not washed it yet, only tried it on and like it. Fits well! I usually wear a size 10 and the large works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and Flattering I've lost some weight recently. Wasn't sure what size to purchast. Bought both M and L. M was perfect and return of the L was so easy! Very comfortable and flattering. Product wears well and holds up well. Would definitely purchase from you again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Look This is a great fit, nice and warm. I got alot of compliments. It is true to size. I would recommend this to my friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Half zip I now have 4 "half zips" some in heather and fusion. I love each and every one! I'm always too warm and the zip allows me to cool down or warm up. Going to cold climates soon and envision great flexibility and layering with the half zip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1/2 zip sweater Fits great - and looks great with skirts. I love this sweater - I bought two!
Date published: 2012-10-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice and soft This pullover is very soft and warm and cute. I wish the cut was slimmer, it feels a little like it's floating around my middle and since it has a curvy cut it hangs a little weird. Overall I think I'll use it alot, it looks great with jeans or on the trail.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this with some small reservations I bought this pullover in 2011 in the teal color and really loved it. I have a slight (narrow) build and the xs fits really, really well. One small issue that I had was that the thumb holes on the sleeves pulled a little more than was comfortable, which I guess means my arms were a little too long for the cut. I went above and beyond in caring for the pullover, washing it only in cold and on my machine's gentle wool cycle. No dryer. After a year of regular use, the color is still vibrant, and there is a small amount of pilling. Fast forward to 2012 and I bought the deep purple color. The fabric quality/texture etc... appears to be exactly the same as 2011. I was pleased to see that the thumb holes have been nixed from the end of the sleeves in this year's version. However, the 2012 design added panels into the sides in a different fabric. The panels bunch on my small frame ever so slightly, so the fit doesn't quite skim the body as the version without the panels. I'm keeping the jacket b/c the color and all else is just perfect. My wish for 2013 would be to nix the panels so the fabric is all in one piece and lays better - and I'd load up on a few more! Thanks Columbia!
