Columbia Glacial Fleece III Hoodie for Ladies
Perfect! Loose but flattering
This is my new favorite lightweight hoodie. I can wear it with a t-shirt underneath when it's a little breezy or easily layer it under a coat. Because of how lightweight it is it works better as a top than a hoodie, but I prefer to wear something underneath since I can feel the seam across the back if I wear it by itself.
One thing I LOVE about this hoodie is the little extra length in the arms. Even with my arms stretched out in front of me they don't pull back past my wrists.
One note: super busty people might want to size up. I'm 5'10" with a 41" chest and I show little stretch lines on the chest. Not much of a problem, I just wear it with a sports bra but if you were larger I could see it being uncomfortable.

Comfy but layer up if you're gonna be out in the cold!
I love the color, I got the red hibiscus, it wasn't really red, more like a deep coral. I wear it over my normal clothes and under a jacket so it's warm.

As a customer who has bought many of the Columbia Fleece it seemed a good idea to try out this hoodie. In my mind I had imagined it exactly like the full zip fleece, but in hoodie form. Unfortunately, I felt like the quality just wasn't as great as all of the other Columbia products I have bought... and for the same price, I could have had the full zip (better quality) and would have been more satisfied.
Reasons lending to this belief:
-It is very light fabric
-long sleeved "shirt" feel
If you are looking for something very light, this would be a great option for you. I just needed something a little more heavy duty and durable for my up and coming trip to the mountains.

Satisfied w/Lightweight Hoodie
The hoodie is very thin and light weight. It does seem to keep me warm when I am chilly. The fit I guess is true to size bc it is not meant to be baggy. I am 140lbs, 5'5", 32D and the large is a comfortable fit. Not too small and not too large. Hope that helps give you an idea. I like the design bc it is more flattering to wear helping create shape and complementing to a woman's body rather then a big oversized baggy hoodie. The price is decent as long as it is on sale and you don't pay more then 30-35 for it. I would give a thumbs up review.
