Great Insulation

    I use this jacket as my insulating layer during late spring and early fall backpacking. I am very happy with the purchase, obviously fleece has its downsides, but for the price this jacket outperforms much of the competition. It also looks good and has a durable feel. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a good fleece jacket.

    Excellent, though not a heavyweight fleece

      This is a great jacket, high quality and nicer than the fancy brands, not to mention a quarter of the price. A word about the "weight" though: The product description says 360g, which I believe translates to 200 "weight" fleece. However, this jacket feels more like 100+ weight. I know because I've had to buy a lot of 200 weight fleece for a camping trip, and this jacket is a lot lighter & thinner than the other fleece specifically labeled 200 weight. Get it if you are looking for a basic layering piece for everyday wear, or you intend to layer a heavier jacket over it for extensive outdoor use in cold weather.

      Columbia Steens Mountain Full-Zip Jacket - Men's

        This is the second one of these jackets I have owned. This one seems to be a bit less beefy than the one I bought about a year ago and so in my opinion is not quite an honest midweight fleece. It's a basic fleece jacket not very fancy. No adjustable cuff closures at sleeves but there is elastic in the cuffs. I am skinny and bought the large size to get the length since I am tall and there is alot of open space at the cuff closures around my wrists. The integral adjustment cords in the lower garment seam provides secure closure at the bottom. I don't use this jacket for backpacking. I have a very light weight down jacket for that. I wear this fleece around the house and even sleep in it at home for some extra warmth and comfort. The garment satisfies my needs and that's why I bought another one. Would be a five star for a cheap basic fleece jacket but the fabric is a bit flimsy in my opinion.

        A good deal

          I bought this fleece based on the reviews I read. This is a pretty nice product which I like to wear around the house. I've only had it for a couple of weeks but so far so good: its warm enough and looks pretty good. The colors are a little hard to match up based on the product page but thats the case for most representations on line. You can't beat the sale price!

          One Excellent Lightweight Layer

            Purchased on a whim due to a $20 customer loyalty certificate BackCountry.com provided. It is hard to go wrong with a $10 Columbia fleece. It makes an excellent layer under a separate Columbia shell I was given. The fleece is lighter weight than my other one which makes it easy to layer. Really am enjoying it and would recommend for similar purposes to others.

            Great under a shell

              Like any fleece, it's not windproof. That's what your shell is for. What it is, is a good, inexpensive, warm fleece. Sizing runs true, size up if you layer up beneath.

              I got this as an insulation layer under a softshell, and together, they hold up to any 3-way jacket at half the price.

              Awesome Fleece

                One of the absolute best products that I have ever purchased. Seriously, it is about the best $30 bucks that I have ever spent. I live in Florida and the weight of this fleece is perfect. Even down in the 30's, I just throw my Marmot Precip jacket over this and I am good to go. It is lightweight and packs small, just about perfect if you ask me.

                Just what I needed

                  I was looking for a casual fleece, full-zip, to wear around town on cooler days that wasn't overly bulky. Based on previous reviews, I ordered a medium and it fits snugly (I'm 5'11" and 200 lbs.) which is what I was looking for. It seemed a little small at first, but I think I was just getting used to it. The wife says it looks good on me, so that's worth a fifth star all on its own.

                  Great Fleece Jacket!

                    Bought this jacket for my husband. This is his second one. First one lasted for 10 years. He loves it and it looks great on him, especially the color Gypsy. Perfect for cool nights or out on the boat. Also REALLY liked how fast I got this from Backcountry.

                    size is too large

                      size was 2 large. i ordered L, but its very large ... and looks loose and boxy on chest.. usually L fits me perfectly. but this aint. its also hard to return as they charge for 7 $. so I am thinking of washing these jackets so that it may shrink to a proper size for me ? material s gud otherwise, everythin else is ok but the size s 2 large.

                      Unfortunately I ran into this problem with the vest style purchased elsewhere...ordered a small and it's closer to a medium or large. I just bought another at the local mall, size small, and fits like a glove. I tried to shrink the other one in warm/hot water and dryer, but unlike cotton this didn't work. Great product of course, just disappointed in the varying sizes

                      IN LOVE

                        I originally bought this jacket for my boyfriend as a christmas gift and when I got it in the mail, I was shocked that the quality of this jacket was extremely high yet the price is extremely low. I loved his jacket so much that I bought myself one. He wears his jacket almost every day and has requested me to buy him the same jacket but in a different color for his birthday coming up. I would definitely suggest the male and female version of this jacket!

                        What weight of fleece is this jacket ? 420g or 360g ?

                        The product description says 360g, which I believe translates to 200 "weight" fleece. However, this jacket feels more like 100+ weight. I know because I've had to buy a lot of 200 weight fleece for a camping trip, and this jacket is a lot lighter & thinner than the other fleece specifically labeled 200 weight. It's a great jacket, high quality, better than the fancy brands, but not a 200 weight fleece.

                        Best Answer

                        Yes, the Fall 2008 model of this jacket should work with that. I just picked up a new Steens full zip and it is NOT compatible with my older Bugaboo - the zippers have different sized teeth.
