About Columbia Sportswear
Founded in 1938, Columbia Sportswear Company has grown from a small family-owned hat distributor to one of the world's largest outerwear brands and the leading seller of ski-wear in the United States. Columbia's extensive product line includes a wide variety of outerwear, sportswear, rugged footwear and accessories. Columbia specializes in developing innovative products that are functional yet stylish and offer great value. Eighty-year-old matriarch Gert Boyle, Chairman of the Board, and her son, Tim Boyle, President and CEO, lead the company.
Columbia's history starts with Gert's parents, Paul and Marie Lamfrom, when they fled Germany in 1937. They bought a small hat distributorship in Portland, Oregon, and named it Columbia Hat Company, after the river bordering the city. Soon frustrated by poor deliveries from suppliers, the Lamfroms decided to start manufacturing products themselves. In 1948, Gert married college sweetheart Neal Boyle, who joined the family business and later took the helm of the growing company. When Neal suddenly died of a heart attack in 1970, Gert enlisted help from Tim, then a college senior. After that, it wasn't long before business really started to take off. Columbia was one of the first companies to make jackets from waterproof/breathable fabric. They introduced the breakthrough technology called the Columbia Interchange System, in which a shell and liner combine for multiple wearing options. In the early 1980s, then 60-year-old Gert began her role as "Mother Boyle" in Columbia's successful and popular advertising campaign.
The company went public in 1998 and moved into a new era as a world leader in the active outdoor apparel industry. Today, Columbia Sportswear employs more than 1,800 people around the world and distributes and sells products in more than 50 countries and to more than 12,000 retailers internationally.

In general, the Columbia fleece jackets are warm, attractive and durable. However, there has been a noticeable difference in quality depending on the color and the year! Some of the colors have beautiful, thick fleece that holds up and washes beautifully. Other colors look worn and drab after a just few washings.
The fit is inconsistent as well. My husband usually wears a Large, and sometimes the Large fits and sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes the Large Tall fits, and sometimes it doesn't. It's a toss up! If you get a good one, you may want to go ahead and order an extra, because they may be different next year!
Measurements: Size Large: Center back length, 28 inches
Width around bottom hem: 53 inches
Sleeve (from shoulder seam) 26 inches
I have an athletic build with wide shoulders and a narrow waist; for most clothes sold in the US I am somewhere between a size M and a size L. Usually size L fits me best in the shoulders but is way too loose around the waist. So I took a chance and ordered this jacket in Medium, sight unseen...bingo!
It seems to be cut for Europeans or Asians: it has a straight cut from the armpits down to the waist. Amazon's first 2 photos with the young male model is completely off, making it look like it's actually TAPERED or CINCHED in the middle, like an hourglass---thank god, it is NOT cut like that.
It's light and thin but nevertheless quite warm, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that the two outer pockets do have zippers on them. There is no inner pocket, though...but that's probably one of the reasons for it being ten bucks cheaper than the Columbia Men's Fast Trek II Full Zip Fleece which has a top front pocket and seems to be made of a thicker material. If I were buying this jacket to wear alone outdoors, I would probably pay the extra ten bucks...but for my purposes, this Steens jacket is EXACTLY what I was hoping for!
Super comfortable and super soft, this fleece is definitely necessary during the chilly months for a college football tailgate or a day out to the zoo with the family.
Added feature- this jacket is beer resistant (okay I actually can not verify this claim but I have spilled a lot of beer on it and it always cleans easily)
As always if you found this review helpful, please mark it as such so I know what to include in further reviews.
Recently my mall no longer carries this particular kind, and I've been using my gray one as a work jacket. The elastic in the wrists makes it especially useful for pulling up my sleeves out of the way, and the collar zips clear up to my neck, keeping me cozy throughout work. I tracked down the same model on Amazon and got the exact color and size I needed for an every-day jacket, while my older gray one now remains my work jacket.
The new black one arrived just in time for the cold weather, and a proper fit really makes a difference after wearing an over-sized one for so long. Having the zippers on the pockets is handy for storing away personal items and not having them tumble out while out-and-about. Nothing compares to these warm, durable jackets.
-Great fit (although would suggest getting a size smaller if you are on the fence)
-Good for layering but warm alone too
-Zipper is a little cheap
-Fiber density is a little low, but higher than I was expecting for the price.
This was the first article of clothing I have bought online and so I was a bit nervous about the size. I am 5'11" and 130lbs, pretty thin for my height, and normally I wear a medium but because of other reviews I ordered a small and it fits perfectly. The length in the torso is great and the arms are a good length without being too long. The stomach area is plenty big for me and allows me to wear a thick hoodie underneath without looking baggy.
The construction of this jacket is not top-of-the-line, but for the price, it is pretty good. The zipper is plastic and a little hard to get started. The fiber density is medium, a North Face jacket has much higher density which allows it to trap air and thus insulate better but it also costs two to three times as much.
I gave four stars because I feel that to earn a full five the product should exceed my expectations, which this did not. Overall a good jacket for a good price, and shipping was prompt.
