Thank you for your feedback.
It fits just perfectly, i like the adjustable waist and how the cuffs on the wrist are formed nicely.
It fits well, it's light, it was a great price($35), and it keeps the chill out on a cold night.
This jacket is very well made, fits well, and is great for layering.

    Overall, this is a wonderful jacket. You can't go wrong with Columbia. However, most of their jackets run slightly large. So, if you're on the edge between two sizes or if you like a tighter fit, it would be best to order down a size.

    When I look at reviews for clothing items, I like to see reviews that include the reviewers size, only because ordering clothes online can be difficult , and as we all know, manufacturers sizing belongs to their own, so a large on one product is more like a medium, etc etc... So I'll start out with that first... I'm 6 ft, with a 48 chest and 36-38 waist. My dress shirts have an arm length of about 34-35. The distance from the bottom of my neck/throat to my waist line is about 21-22 inches. And I weigh about 235 pounds. The XL sized fleece, which is the size I normally get in everything.... Was perfect for me. Plenty of chest room, arm room, and more than enough mid-section room, and I tried this one with just a thin under armour shirt on. I should add that the fleece does go below my specific waist line, approx 3-4 inches, which is a plus of course because I don't like jackets and fleeces that just end right at the waistline. After I wear some layers underneath, it can only be a better fit. I have to point out, I don't like tight jackets and this isn't one of them. So I hope this helps with sizing, at least with someone close to my size. As far as quality, no shortcuts taken. Stitching and sewing were done correctly, and the fleece is great for warmth.

    I ordered this jacket a couple days before a group hike up Icehouse Canyon in the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument. I knew it would be cold and would likely be raining on the hike and didn't want to freeze. I already had a Columbia waterproof windbreaker but wanted more warmth than a windbreaker could provide and didn't want to get overheated.

    When the jacket arrived, I was surprised by how well it fit. After reading all those reviews saying the jacket ran large, I wasn't sure what I'd get. But it fit perfectly and I took it on my hike up Icehouse Canyon. We eventually encountered a cold rain as expected but the Columbia Men's Steens Fleece Jacket kept me warm, even though my "waterproof" windbreaker was completely saturated. I was very satisfied by the way it fit underneath the windbreaker (first photo).

    I've also used this jacket for snow hikes like Mt Baden Powell (second photo) and it performed well. My only gripe with this jacket and the reason I deducted one star, is that the jacket is somewhat bulky and seems to take up the entire backpack when you're not wearing it.

    Overall, this is an excellent jacket for cool weather hikes if you don't mind how bulky it is.

    NOTE: For whatever reason, Amazon decided to strip out the two photos I had included in my review showing the Columbia Fleece jacket in use on rain and snow hikes. It's their site so I suppose they can do what they want. Even if it doesn't make any sense. In any case, you can view the entire uncensored review on my dayhikingtrails.com site in the Gear Review section.

    I'm very pleased with this fleece. It fits well, it's light, it was a great price($35), and it keeps the chill out on a cold night. Also the inside and outside pockets are nice and deep.

    My two issues are that the inside pockets have no zipper or buttons so I don't feel comfortable putting anything valuable in them for fear that they could fall out if I set it down(I've had that happen before in other jackets). And the color is not quite what it shows on the website. I got the Sanguine/Grill and thought it would be reddish and dark gray when it's really a dark orange and slightly dark gray. If I had paid more attention I'd have noticed the Sanguine preview being very orange(though on mine it isn't as bright) and gone with the Red Element/Charcoal one instead. The Sanguine/Grill colors do look good even though they are not quite what I was looking for and I won't be exchanging it.

    There is a picture on my profile showing the colors.

    *Update 12/16/13*

    The stitching on the right-hand inside that held the drawstring came undone at some point. I didn't notice it until I tried to put something in the right pocket and it just fell straight to the floor. The stitching also held the bottom of both the inside and outside pockets closed. Should be a simple fix with a needle and thread. Worth noting in terms of quality and durability though.

    I feel like I have to gentle with it but then again so worth the less than $30 it cost. It does its job effectively as one of several layers and keeps me cozy by itself when it's chilly but not too cold. No problem with the comfort & fit, can't complain.

    Sources: I exclusively used this in tandem with a rain jacket when I spent 3 months climbing in Glacier National Park's high country. I experienced some pretty gnarly weather during my time up there and I can say this fleece never let me down for what it's worth.

    Picture: I'm on the left with my middle layer of fleece keeping me warm and agile on top of Mount Reynolds, the tallest mountain in the area around Logan's Pass Visitor Center. It was awesome!
