Product Description

Made from 360 g mtr fleece, this jacket is as rugged, warm, and durable as it is soft

When you can't be there on the slope to wrap your arms around your child, let this fleece sweater do the hugging. The Steens Mountain Sweater from Columbia Sportswear features 100% polyester non-pilling MTR fleece that dries quickly and continues to insulate when wet. Fleece-lined pockets warm chilled fingers. Radial sleeves allow freedom of movement for sports and extreme activity. The full-zip front has a stand-up collar.

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.

    Got this for my son for Christmas and it immediately became his go-to jacket (by his own choosing). Now no matter what the weather, no matter what the temperature, he wants to wear this fleece - and he's always bummed when we make him wear his heavier coat when it's too cold and/or windy for a fleece. And this from a boy that generally doesn't give a hoot about what he wears! He loves the soft wear of the fleece and it looks really handsome & masculine on him. The full-length zipper and raised collar make this more useful and easier to get on and off than a 1/4 zip fleece. It's a mid-weight fleece providing good warmth for its weight and it seems well-constructed and has been trouble free after a month and a half of nearly daily use. My son (7) is a little bit big for his age and we got him the 10/12, it's kind of big on him but still functional & with room to grow - he'll definitely get at least a couple of seasons out of it. We paid $20 for it at a local department store, and it has proven to be a super purchase. Sturdy, understated but stylish, really comfy, and most importantly he loves it. Thumbs up!

    My son's are 12 and 5 so I ordered the size that they normally wear for their age. They fit body wise, but the sleeves were too short on both boys. I was going to send them back, but I sold one and gave one away. I'm going to order some more and go the next size up. There great jackets its just the sleeves are to short.
