A favorite fleece is like a good friend. It provides warmth and comfort and always makes you feel good about yourself. The problem is that the best specimens can cost a fortune. But sometimes the outerwear gods smile upon us, offering access to an expensive piece for a fraction of the typical cash outlay. This, dear friends, is one of those moments. Amazon just cut the price of its best-selling fleece: Columbia’s Benton Springs Jacket. With quality material, a slimming cut, excellent hardware, and, well, a pretty impressive name, this jacket is a home run. The only thing that’s stopped us in the past is the price: It’s normally $60. But right now, you can have this baby for just $35.
Made from soft, maximum thermal retention (MTR) filament fleece, this layering continues to work to keep you warm on cool fall days. It’s thin enough to double as the perfect under layer with a parka or down jacket in winter. Large side zip pockets keep your phone, keys and cash safe. And the collared neck is not only super flattering, it’s also ultra practical, negating the need for a scarf.
With five stars from over 30,000 buyers, Columbia’s Benton Springs Jacket is a clear winner. Right now there are 55 colors to choose from, in sizes XS to 3X, with petite and plus options. But at this price, we’re pretty sure this item will be flying like hot cakes. So don’t hesitate. You deserve the best, and think how excited you’ll be to get outdoors and exercise when you have the perfect jacket for the job.
One five star reviewer loved it so much she bought six! She shared: “Okay, I’ll admit when I find a piece that fits me perfectly and is extremely comfortable, I tend to become obsessed with it. I own six of them and I love all the colors, especially the red lily, the colors are so beautiful. I wear them everyday from early fall to late spring, they are my favorite jackets for my mountain hikes, park walks and all my daily outdoor activities… I love this jacket and I dare you to choose just one!”
Another adds, “This Columbia jacket is my all-time favorite fleece. It’s softer, thicker, longer in the sleeves (which is important for tall women like me), has a better cut, and has pretty zip pockets.” that open like Patagonia. The quality blows the Patagonia out of the water. There’s even a curl at the bottom hem.”
“I’m so glad I finally bought a Columbia!!!” said a longtime admirer. “This thing is so damn warm and comfortable that I just want to live in it for the rest of my life. It’s a comfortable fit, enough room for a long sleeve and a hoodie underneath.”
