Columbia fleece half zipped,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Columbia Women's Glacial Fleece III 1/2 Zip Jacket (Sports)
I have been wearing these Columbia half-zippers for several years. A couple years ago they changed the design [and keep doing it every year.] I wished they hadn't. The collar is much wider now and it's just not as comfortable. The one I bought this year feels tighter than the older ones. I usually start wearing these first over a T-shirt when the Fall starts and later over a long sleeve shirt and eventually over turtle necks in the winter. This year's version felt too tight already over a thin long-sleeve shirt. I felt it pulled over the chest area. I do like them nevertheless. I buy one each year to replace one that retires! I also don't like the bright, heavy green and blue etc. I wished they had more mellow colors.

I definitely agree. I have worn these several years also. I have always worn the size Small. This year I ordered two more and they have changed the fit and style just enough to make this a little more snug around the chest and a little narrower on the upper arm, so not as comfortable. They have added darts at the bust which may or may not hit at the right spot. Don't really see the point of them. The collar is overly big and somewhat stiff. I do like the longer body as it gives good coverage. The nylon finish on the sleeves makes it warmer but also harder to pull up the sleeves. I don't layer anything under this top, but I do put a fleece vest over it and it is definitely soft and warm. I think a size Medium would be too big, so overall I am happy with this top but prefer last year's style.
