I love the fit of this jacket. It has just enough structure to look cute & not boxy, but not so much that it feels constricting. The fabric is super soft. It is great for casual wear. It is the perfect amount of warmth for running errands during our mild winter - it keeps me warm enough in the mild winter weather to pop in and out of stores and my car, and keeps me from overheating from wearing a bulky winter coat. I even wear it around the house when I'm chilly.
Just received it today. I normally wear a small in shirts/sweaters but at times a medium. I struggled with which size to order because so many said it was tight. I went with the SMALL and I'm glad I did! It's still roomy enough to wear a sweater under but today with my fitted shirt it didn't look like I was swimming in it. For reference, I'm 5'6" and weigh 130. I'm a slim build. My natural waist is 27. My bust is 34. The small is perfect! I love that it comes down well past the waistband of my jeans but doesn't cover my whole rear end. The only thing I didn't care for is the elastic around the sleeve. I saw it when I ordered but didn't realize there were other Columbia style options that were also such a great price! I'm going to try another style soon in another color. I went with the charcoal in this one and it's a great go-with-anything-and-everything color.
It's super soft and well made. I will definitely order again!
I am very impressed with this fleece jacket. It's very soft, and is perfect for the weather we've been having. It's pretty much been spring all winter and since we are heading into real spring, I know this jacket will be my go to even on cool summer nights so this jacket can be worn year around if you're usually always cold like me.
The color is great - I ordered the Charcoal Heather. It's a little lighter grey than the photo, but is still rich and warm.
The pockets are also worth mentioning. Not only are there the normal pockets on the oustide that are fashioned with zippers, but on the inside are two very deep pockets that can hold more items than you can imagine. Think of a Mary Poppin's carpet bag on the inside of a jacket...
I'm 5'4" 120lb and the small fits loosely, but comfortably. I am ordering another Columbia fleece - the Fast Trek II style - in x-small because I would like it to be more fitted.
I'm hoping with two fleeces, I won't wear them out as quickly because I have not taken off this Benton Springs fleece since it came in the mail. I'm all about comfort and this jacket definitely meets those expectations. Worth every penny, and I have a sneaking suspicion that I will be purchasing a few more in different colors.
Oh and the tag that comes on the jacket does say $50 so that's another added perk to this already perfect product.
Bought this for my teen daughter for Christmas. She loves it. She said it fits well and is perfect for everyday wear. We all have several of these jackets and they are definitely the most used of everything we all own. They are warm, durable and with different color options, you can pair them with almost anything. I also wash them regularly and have never had any issues.
This jacket was such a bargain! It is very warm. I bought it in a heather gray and the color is exactly as shown. I am 5'5", 125 lbs 32c and the small is perfect. I don't want bulky fit so I end up looking like a dough boy but I need it to give enough room for a long sleeve shirt under it. This is perfect for that and to still not too tight fitting. The main reason I bought it was for an upcoming trip to Scotland. I will wear a long sleeve under it, then this jacket and a raincoat over it and it seems to be perfect. They quality of this jacket is really good and when I put it on, I started warming up pretty quickly. I think I will be buying another of these maybe to keep at my workplace. Can't say enough how pleased I am with this.
This a great fleece jacket to wear inside or outside. It's so soft and comfortable, and the material is high quality and durable. I like that the pockets zip up, and there are also pockets on the inside. Also, the elastic isn't too tight around the wrists, and it's adjustable at the hem line.
This is my favorite jacket. I wear it year round all the time. It's warm and comfortable and makes me feel outdoorsy without actually having to leave my house. My office is always so cold so I wear it in there and it keeps me nice and warm. It's the perfect transition jacket between fall and winter and winter and spring. It's also great for layering. I cannot say enough good things about this jacket. It is my everything.
The only thing is that the pockets are a little small and I have to make sure to zip up the pockets or else my phone (iPhone 7 plus) will fall out. Other than that, I will never take this jacket off.
These are very warm and soft so I bought them in three colors. Black, dark grey and blue. I can cinch the waists which is nice and a draft won’t come it and it’s not too long then. It’s roomy so I can layer if I need to. For the price, it’s worth it.
I really like this jacket. I bought it to take on a trip and didn't want something bulky. It is lightweight, but very warm. The material is soft. I am 5'2" and 119 lbs and ordered a small. The fit was perfect.
