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.
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 live in an area where we rarely have very cold weather so this is perfect for when our weather dips into the low 50's. Lightweight, not bulky. I love the zippered pockets. I'm short (5'1") and this is a good fit. Jacket falls a bit past my hips but the sleeves aren't too long for ne.
I really love this fleece. I got the Dark Raspberry. The color is gorgeous and just as appears online. It is plush, affordable, and comes in great colors. I am 5'6" and 130ish. I wear a size 4 to 6 in chlothes but sometimes medium in tops and often mediums in jackets because I have broad shoulders and long arms. I ended up keeping this in medium. I liked the look of the small but it was too tight in the neck when fully zipped on me. The zipper pressed into my neck too much. The medium also has longer sleeves for my long arms so I like that. The size small arms were long enough for me too though. In medium it does have a slightly baggy fit on me but nothing too bulky. I mostly wear it indoors as a lounge jacket so it's perfect. I will definitely purchase more colors as time passes. One issue I had was the first medium I was sent did not cinch tight at hem. The toggle did not hold well and cinch did not stay. I exchanged with the free returns/exchanges and quickly got a new medium that stays cinched nicely. The irony is that I have never cinched it. I still expect the function to work though!
The material is great for the cold Fall season in So. California, exactly what I need. I'm 5'3", 120 lbs, size M fits perfectly. The color is beautiful, not too red nor too purple. The price is just right, not $60.00, but $35.00! I will be wearing it a lot in the weeks to come (it's early October now).
