This fleece does what it is supposed to do. I use it as a mid layer, between a slimmer fitting fleece and my work coat. Seems to run a little large, which is good for my purposes. There was a LOT of excess thread at most seams when I received it, so I trimmed it all out with scissors rather than return it. So far, it has held up well, though I've only had it for a couple of weeks.

Am very pleased with the Columbia Fleece Jacket so far: it keeps me comfortably warm in typical winter temperatures and can easily accommodate a thermal vest layered over it when necessary; the "tall" size provides good coverage for a tall frame; and can easily adjust the fit around the waist with elastic ties. Best of all,it provides excellent range of motion and light weight with reliable thermal protection. External zipper pockets are good-sized and hold gloves and knit caps fairly well; internal "secure" pockets are a useful touch. The jacket seems well-constructed as well. Bought this on an end-of-year sale at Dick's, so at that price it was an excellent value. At its regular price, it would be an "average" to "good" value.
