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.
This fleece was extremely comfortable, however it was not thick enough to provide adequate warmth. I bought his to hike in Yosemite in 35-45 degree weather and layer lighter sweaters underneath, and I had to purchase a different one there because this one wouldn’t even keep me warm in chilly California weather. Great sweater for comfort, not for actually providing extreme warmth. It also runs small, I’m usually an xs in everything, and bought this in an xs and it barely zipped.
I’m not sure if this product is not an original Columbia product or if it’s a faulty piece. I have the same jacket in a different color, and this one fits differently. This jacket won’t even zip up all the way because the neck collar is too narrow. Besides that, it looks like an original, no one would really be able to tell.
