Benton Springs fleece
March 27, 2010
I ordered a pink and yellow fleece jacket. The colors are true to the website and fit is true to size. I will watch for more colors in the future.
Comfort At Its Best
December 06, 2010
This jacket is perfect for wearing on crisp cold fall days or layering under a raincoat for extra warmth. So comfortable and warm. I ordered it in black but want to work on getting it in many more colors to go with everthing I wear! This jacket fits true to size where I have found many plus size outerwear garments either run small or the sleeves are extremely long the larger the size. This is not the case with this coat. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a high quality all around jacket.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value
A nice buy at the sale price
December 27, 2010
I ordered the Benton Springs fleece jacket in barn red, which is a very pretty soft red, almost a faded red. The raglan sleeves provide a flattering fit through the shoulders. The fleece was not as thick as I expected. At first, I was disappointed, but now I'm kind of glad, because I can wear this top indoors. There is an elasticized cord running through the hem that you can snug up if you like. To me, the cord feels somewhat stiff and heavy, in comparison to the weight of the fabric, but it's functional and would come in handy on a windy day. As for wind protection of the fabric, I don't expect there's any more than any other item of clothing that isn't specifically designed for wind protection. I like the fit of this jacket. I was between sizes and ordered down. I think it would make for a nice baselayer under a winter coat. All in all, I really like this jacket and was very tempted to buy the bark and lime green, but thought I should at least wait until after Christmas -- ha!Pros: Great design
Great fleece sweater; gorgeous color
December 31, 2009
The sweater fit our niece perfectly. Great for her to wear under a coat or vest, or alone during fall or spring. Great price for it on altrec.com, as well.

Greatest fleece I own, washes well, fit is true to size. Great to where in place of winter coat when going to the mall.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, overall worth it
My mom likes it!
April 19, 2011
I bought this fleece for my mom as something just to hang out in so she'd stop wearing sweatshirts from my HS softball tournaments (my class just had their 10 year reunion). My mom is notoriously hard to shop for, give her a garment and she can find fault with it and return it. When the fleece came it looked like it was going to be a little small for a 3x, but when I made my mom try it on it fit great. The only complaint she had was that it didn't cover her butt, but I told her it wasn't supposed to and thus far she's been okay with it.Pros: Lasts forever, Great value
Great fit, light, and does not lose shape.
August 27, 2009
It is great to find a jacket in 1X that has shape and a great fit. Was no worse for the wear traveling in my backpack. Always looked fresh. Light to carry but warm enough to cross the ocean on a ferry and be very comfortable. I love the red color!
February 15, 2010
Thought that the shipping was a little slow but the product was very nice and true to size. Great for layering
October 12, 2010
I love these fleece jackets. I buy one every year and this year I bought two(bark and black cherry). They are perfect for fall and mild winter weather or you can layer the jacket with a sweater underneath. The fit is great and so are the colors. I am a plus size so I need width but the sleeves have the gathered cuffs so the jacket fits and the sleeves are not too long.Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value
Benton Springs fleece
August 05, 2010
In Minnesota, I have a wardrobe of Columbia fleece. I wear fleece jackets daily, indoors and out. Columbia fleece are made well and a great value.
great products, not so great customer service
December 31, 2009
I placed 2 orders on 12-06-09 and 3 days before Christmas called to find out the status of one package not rec'd yet. Basically I was told that it wasn't going to make it before the 25th and I was SOL. I love the products that did come but was major disapointed in the "free shipping, guarenteed by Christmas" which didn't happen.
April 26, 2011
I love fleece jackets. I purchased the navy and it goes great with jeans. It has become my go to jacket this spring. I purchased the 1x and the fit is true to size.Pros: Great design, Build quality
Just what I wanted
May 19, 2010
Not too bulky. Sized correctly. Thanks for the reviews; they gave me confidence to order. Am getting two more!
I love this sweater.
February 18, 2010
This is my all time favorite sweater. I live in these all year round. I buy it in as many colors as I can and as I have put on weight through the years I have replaced smaller sizes with larger sizes but I always have as many as I can.
November 17, 2010
I have wanted a fleece jacket with medium warmth, a beautiful color which would fit me nicely with a little extra room. Also, I wanted pockets which this does. This fleece is just perfect and fits as I hoped. All I want to do now is order a few more in some of the other great colors. Thank you for the perfect jacket and perfect price !!!!Pros: Performance, Ease of use, Great value
LOVE love love!

This is my third Benton over about 5 years. I wear it nearly everyday (I work from home and snuggle in from Sept - May in WA!). It is perfect for camping and layering under cold weather gear or to and from the gym in early cool mornings. It wears well and is just perfect to throw on running out to pick up kids or take out the dogs. My Son and Daugher also have the kids version which they wear constantly. True to size and color! Columbia prevails again and the service through Altrec too, have order from here for years and they never ever disapoint! Thank you!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

shipping was slow, jacket was really short, not consistent with other Columbia jackets I already have. colors were great.

I live in the South and don't have a need for a large bulky coat. This fits the bill perfectly.

The size was a great fit and very accurate. The Color is true and fabulous. The quality of the fabric is execellent. The fleece was exactly as I hoped. I was looking for a fleece that would fit over a shirt for extra warmth and had saw it on someone but I needed a plus size and could not find one like it. Thanks for making me happy.Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, great color, great material, great sales

Have 16 in all different colors. They are the mainstay of my winter wardrobe. I layer with long sleeve t-shirts or turtlenecks. They are also perfect weight for spring and fall as a lightweight jacket. They a very soft and comfortable and warm and they wash great.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Great Jacket for Fall or Winter indoors
October 23, 2011
I really enjoy throwing this jacket on at work when my office gets chilly because it looks very professional, but it feels like wearing a blanket. I bought in 3 colors so they will pretty much match any shirt collar I happen to wear on a given Fall or Winter day. I have really enjoyed that the more they are washed the softer they feel too.Pros: Build quality, Great value
Perfect for Fall
November 17, 2009
I was looking for a cuddly jacket to bridge until big coat weather. The Benton Springs is perfect for that!
The best fleece I've ever owned!!!
April 15, 2010
Great product...I will definitely buy more colours. Launders well and fits true to size. Love the variety of colours!!!

I am very pleased with my two jackets. They are the perfect weight for our spring weather. I purchased the Black and the Corange, and I love the fit of both jackets - not too tight and not too loose - but just right. I also wanted to order the Bark color but it was not available. I have my name on the list to be notified if it becomes available. If not this year, I will order it next year.
