Men's Fast Trek Half Zip
October 23, 2011
This review is for the Columbia Fast Trek Half Zip Fleece for Men in dark gray. I compared this purchase to a very similar shirt of a different brand that I purchased last year for the same price. The quality of this fleece is equivalent to the more expensive brand. I plan to purchase another one of these Columbia shirts in black. You cant beat the value and convenience of shopping at altrec.com.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value

I got this for my husband last year, and it has been through many washes and has held up great. I got him the bright red color, and it is a gorgeous, rich color and is great b/c he goes out in the woods with our dog during hunting season, so the color stands out. It's very soft, warm, wonderful!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Warm, comfortable, good looking, good fit, exactly what I expect from Columbia gear
Good Idea for Purchase
January 03, 2011
This jacket was warm and durable and provided excellent protection against the wind. Only complaints were it was a little cooler than I had thought but not so much to make it a huge deal.Pros: Great design, Performance, Great value, Cons: Cost
December 07, 2010
I wear a medium but this medium was too small a fit. I had problems getting it on and off. This felt like a small but the sleeve length was perfect.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Cons: small cut
Great looking fleece
December 29, 2009
Quick shipping, true to size, great item.
good jacket overall
January 20, 2010
jacket is good.
December 05, 2010
I recommend this fleece for comfortable weekend wear. It's great as an underlayer, but can't really stand on its own to protect against cold winds.Pros: Great value
December 27, 2010
My son loves this jacket so much he wants to buy another.....thought I might take advantage of your after Christmas sale. He is short and the jacket fits him perfectly--usually they are too long on him.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value
Nice and warm!
January 02, 2012
This fleece is perfect for hiking, skiing, fishing, hunting and pretty much anything to do with the outdoors! The thickness of the fleece ensures that you'll stay warm and comfortable! Best used for layering.Pros: Lasts forever, Performance, Great value
just the ticket

does what it says on the tin
October 07, 2009
Not true to size. Runs very very small
February 02, 2010
all is excellent. I have one XL in BLACK. Thanks.
Great Overall Fleece!
November 16, 2010
This is a great in between fleece! I have purchased 3 of these and wear them (with a T Shirt underneath) on my early morning power walks in 42 degree temperatures. Theyll still work fine when the temps drop even more. The fit is a bit athletic but thats one of the things I really like about it. Because its not bulky, it easily fits under my soft shell jacket as a base layer for other activities. Im 5 foot 9 and 154 lbs and a medium fits perfectly. You cant beat the price or Altrecs excellent service!Pros: Build quality, Great value, Cons: can't think of one!
Tight sleeves and snug body
October 25, 2010
I normally buy large sweatshirts. I wanted this to fit over my casual shirts so I purchased an XL. Glad I did. the fit is very snug and skimpish on the length of the garment.Pros: Performance, Cons: all around snug fit
November 08, 2010
Great buy on a good product! This Columbia jacket is an 'old standard' that can be worn in our CO. weather year around. Have never found the fleece jacket for this price. Altrec rocks!Pros: Great value
March 14, 2010
The piece is exactly what I expected. Nothing extra special about it, but a soft pull over for everyday use. True to standard sizing. Constructed well. An overall good value.
August 17, 2011
Great inexpensive fleece that is warm and durable and the placement of the pocket makes it very handy. Overall it is a great fleece that is a great product to wear.Pros: Performance, Great value
December 08, 2010
I was so excited to see the trek jacket on sale! My fiance loves the half zip and not the full zip, so when I saw this one I was super pleased. It should fit him dead on, he is 5'8 and weighs about 145 lbs. He wears a medium in most everything. This jacket will be a great gift!Pros: Great design, Great value
Best Fleece on a budget!
March 23, 2011
I gotta say this fleece was everything I thought it would be and more! I went on an overnight backpacking trip into Angeles National Forest recently and this fleece was exactly what I needed. It kept me warm and even though its as half zip it didn't really get too hot or get in the way of my fire wood chopping duties. The one caviat I have with it is that the wind really creeps though it but I guess that's what a windbreaker is for. If I had to pay $30 bucks more on this same fleece pullover to make it windproof i'd totally do it, that's how much I like it.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value
Great fleece for the price!
November 15, 2011
This is a surprisingly warm fleece for the price. The fit is nice as well, not too baggy. I'm 6'0 180lbs and the large fits perfect. The softness compares to more expensive brands also.

I bought this product a year ago and have been satisfied with this product. Design: I really liked the design of the product, especially the stand-up collar - as is portrayed in many pictures. However, in reality the collar doesn't stand up well and is intended to be used as standard/fold-down collar. Quality: Overall quality is great. The only downside I've noticed is that the fabric near elbows has worn-out even though I haven't used it much. I'm not sure if this is common with other brand-name fleece as well - so it could be an issue or not. I would also agree with other reviewers that its not good for wind protection. Its best-use is as a layer or in chilly (but non-windy) weather. Size: Many reviewers had me scared regarding the size - saying it runs short. So I went ahead and ordered Medium, but that turned out to be big for me. I would say if you like "columbia authentic" fit, then order standard size, if you want a bit loose or will be wearing it over a shirt, then go with one size-up.Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: Wears quickly
Nice, solid, lightweight mid-layer
April 10, 2010
I love these Columbia fleeces. "Columbia" doesn't have the pizaz name like Patagonia, MHW, whatever, but I keep buying these products because they are a solid value and seem to fit me perfectly. Check out Columbia clothing next time you buy hiking/climbing gear. I knocked it down to 4 stars because I thought one flaw was its length, a tad short. But I have a very long torso, this fleece is probably plenty long enough for most. The size seems right in line with other products; the Large fits me well (except the above mentioned length) and I usually wear a large in most clothing. The description says this item is good for "casual, urban," etc, etc, but I wear mine as a perfect mid-layer climbing mountains in Colorado in winter. This is capable of more than just casual use.

I love this fleece. It is a little short, as it is intended to be worn as a layer. It is impossible to beat the price and quality of Columbia products.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Great value
Great looking fleece
February 24, 2010
Heavier weight and trimmer fit,long in the sleeve, which I like, and shorter in the torso so it doesn't show below a jacket.
comfortable and good touch sense
May 14, 2010
True to size and with good fleece, wearing comfortable and good look. But I think it wearing not very handsome, even a little cute. Because the bottom hem is a little wide than shoulder. Maybe the Windsor color is more suitable for young people.
Too small, too short
December 05, 2010
This Columbia fleece is good quality but it fits a complete size smaller than normal and it is too short. A good inch or two shorter than my other Columbia fleeces.Pros: Great value, Cons: Bad design
Men's Fast Trek Half Zip
January 01, 2012
I purchased this fleece jacket in 2011 and wore it quite often. It is comfortable and warm, and fits true to size. It is still in very good condition after many times of machine washes.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value
