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 ordered three of these fleeces to replace my Columbia fleece from last year; two navy and one black. The colors are not as pictured. The two navy fleeces arrived and were light blue. All three fleeces including the black were faded and weren't the same quality of fabric from those I purchased last year by Columbia. I don't recommend buying these fleece coats, not sure what happened to the quality control.
When I saw how small my Amazon box was I knew something must be wrong. Sure enough, when I took the jacket out, I couldn't believe the difference in quality from my other Columbia jacket that is now about 5 yrs. old. The fleece is so light and almost see-through thin. It is a pretty jacket to be sure, and I love the deep blue color, but be aware that Columbia products are not what they used to be.
Definitely not the quality I would expect from Columbia. I'm 5'4" 115 lbs and normally would wear a small but this was very roomy on me. I like the option of being able to layer under this jacket but I'm quite sure I could still do this with an XS. Jacket was stiff - especially cuffs. I did not wash it to see if it would soften because I plan to return it. The worst part about it was the pockets. Lined with some material that catches on your skin in 100 places when you put your hand inside. Ugh! Will look elsewhere for a better quality replacement for my current fleece jacket.
I bought this jacket in a size Large. It was great condition and all over I was very happy with it, but I decided I’d like a looser fit so I ordered an XL from the same seller. The XL came quickly, but it feels like it’s a 2X and the Columbia logo was a patch, not embroidered. I looked back at the website and it did say, in the small print, it could have the embroidered logo or a patch. Not cool. It makes it look cheap! Needless to say, I’m not very happy. They should give you the choice or make that a little more clear.
I really liked these jackets, but it seems the fit isn’t like it used to be. My old dark gray was starting to show wear so I replaced it with the same size and style, but it’s not the same. Too fitted through the waist and the sleeves are too long and too big around the wrist. I returned it and will try at a local store where I can try on several sizes to hopefully find one that fits better.
I thought this was the same as the columbia sweater that I've got. I ordered the same size as the one I have and then had to return it and order a size smaller in this one. Even still it is larger than the other one I've got; roomy in the mid section and baggy sleeves. The elastic at the wrists is a bit snug when I pull up the sleeves at all though, which I like to do. I am actually disappointed in this sweater and I should have returned it, but it's too late now. I hardly wear it. It is warm and soft, but not what I was wanting I guess. I wouldn't recommend this jacket.
I expected it to run a little small but it’s extremely small. It’s also a little lighter weight than expected. I purchased a heavier model in a medium (I usually wear small) and kept it. However, I’d consider buying a large especially if I were going to wear a sweater under it.
