To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased this to replace one that I had purchased years ago. The fleece is very soft and so far has washed well. All the seams and zippers seem good. This fleece is thinner than the one I had before, but warm enough for cool days (50-60 degrees F). Roomy enough to layer with a long-sleeved shirt underneath, but it’s not too bulky to wear under a warmer coat.
This jacket is a lightweight fleece, light enough that you can just see dark colors through the white jacket. The sewn-on label is exactly how it appears on the Colombia website, so it's not a fake. The material is a not super soft, but it's still comfortable. I sized up for an oversized fit, but my normal size would have fit fine. Good length on the sleeves for those of us with long arms.
This is a perfect light-weight jacket. The sleeves are long enough to ride comfortably at the wrists for my long arms. My only complaint is that the colors of the Columbia jackets are off. I bought the navy color first and it wasn't navy; it was like a faded denim. I returned it and bought the black, but it is not a true black; it is more like a charcoal grey. If the color is important to you, this coat may be disappointing; otherwise it is perfect.
Very soft and warm! I ordered a medium - I’m 5’3”, 135 lbs. It fits a little big, but that’s how I wanted it to fit. I could probably have gotten a small and it for fine, but I prefer a looser fit for my outerwear. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because the black wasn’t as dark as in the picture. The black looked a little faded. I still really like it though.
Love the material, very soft. I got the black and it does look slightly faded but I don't mind. Wish it had a bit more of a flattering shape to it, instead it's very "square-ish." My favorite is the sleeves. I am 5'10, 155lbs with long arms and it's difficult to find sleeves that are long enough. These fit me perfect so they might be a bit too long for the average size.
Purchased from Rocky Mountain Trail through Amazon and they sent it promptly and packaged well.No excess packing unlike so many things ordered through Amazon.The jacket is soft and comfortable - the medium size has sleeves that are a bit bulky but not something that would prevent me from ordering again. The color - brown- matches the picture perfectly. Update -May 2017: I purchased the oxygen color of this jacket and I must say a better color description Columbia could have chosen would be "light baby blue". I was expecting a light blue/grey color but it is really baby blue. (The brown jacket that I wrote about originally is rather dull looking with minimal wear. I am going to donate it.)
I like this jacket because it feels warm in a freezing cold weather.. I bought it for my North Dakota trip in early April where it was still snowing and freezing cold. It is light weighted and feel soft & warm. The size is bit smaller compared to other jacket.
This is a nice jacket and a very responsible price. It runs a little large and the sleeves are a little long. I bought the large and should have gone with a medium but I’m keeping it. It looks nice and is a true navy blue color. Not as cozy as a North Face but for the price it’s well worth it.
A bit more baggy than I had imagined; I'm 5'6" and this goes past my hips; otherwise, I love how much warmth this provides. Although it's still summer right now, I know it'll keep me warm during the winter because as soon as I went to try it on, I started to sweat a little. Overall, well worth the price!
**UPDATE 4/30/16: I have worn this so much throughout this past fall and winter -- even some colder days of spring! I love it even though i may not be everyone's cup of tea. They are not technically the most "fashionable" but personally, as a student, I would rather be comfortable when it comes to big test days.
