A little TOO versatile... must be magic.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Columbia Women's Fast Trek II Full Zip Fleece Jacket (Apparel)I've concluded this fleece must be magic.
How else is it that I, a recent transplant from Texas to Massachusetts, could walk out in only this fleece over a thin cotton sweater - in 30something degree weather - and be fine in not just the cold, but the wind?
And how is it that this fleece transitions so well from outside to inside? When I got a chill at work and threw on this fleece, I was fine. I wasn't too hot, even though it had just made me comfortable in 30something degree windy weather.
I rest my case.
(For those of a more serious demeanor: "just kidding." But really, it's a great fleece. I was raised in Texas and did my undergrad in LA, so Boston is my first experience living long term in a cold climate. If I can handle cold, windy weather in just this fleece, so can you.)
For sizing purposes: I'm about 5'6", 32B chest, and 27" waist. The XS fits with enough room to layer light sweaters underneath. The length is great - it falls around mid-hip for me. It also has a bit of a bias cut, so it's not boxy.

Since I'm living in TX, this should be a perfect jacket for my college student, right? all weather in our winters? Because her North FAce gets too hot.

I'm sorry! I never got a notification from Amazon that someone commented on my review. This fleece may be too hot, like her North Face. Both Columbia and North Face offer thinner fleeces, though - I would look at some of those.
