A favorite fleece is like a good friend. It provides warmth and comfort and always makes you feel good about yourself. Problem is, the finest specimens can cost a bundle. But sometimes the outerwear gods smile upon us, offering access to a pricey piece for a fraction of the typical cash outlay. This, dear friends, is one of those moments.
Amazon has just slashed the price of its top-selling fleece — the Columbia Benton Springs jacket. With top quality material, a slimming cut, excellent hardware and a seriously impressive name, this jacket is a home run. The only thing that's kept us from it in the past is the price — it's normally $60. But right now you can get this fall fleece for just $40 (prices vary based on size and color).
Made of soft maximum-thermal-retention (MTR) filament fleece, this piece keeps works to keep you toasty on cool fall days. It's thin enough to also serve as the perfect under-layer with a parka or puffer in winter. Large side-zip pockets securely hold phone, keys and cash. And the collared neck is not only super-flattering but it's also ultra-practical, negating the need for a scarf.
With five stars from nearly 25,000 shoppers, the Columbia Benton Springs jacket is a clear winner. Right now there are 36 colors to choose from, in sixes XS to 3X. But at this price, we feel pretty sure this item will fly off the shelves. So don't hesitate. You deserve the best, and just think how pumped you'll be to get out in the crisp air and exercise when you have the perfect jacket for the job.
One five-star reviewer loved hers so much, she bought six! She shared: "Ok, I’ll admit, when I find a garment that fits me great and is extremely comfortable I tend to become obsessed with it. I own 6 of these and I love all of the colors, especially the Lily red, the colors are so beautiful. I wear these every day from early Fall to late Spring, they are my go-to jackets for my mountain hikes, park walks and all my daily outdoor activities...I love this jacket and dare you to choose just one!"
A nursing student shared that this was a must in her book: "I am a nursing school student and it gets really cold in our classroom," she explained. "They recommend us to have these thin lab coats to wear with our uniforms and they don't do anything in the way of keeping us warm! But then there is this! It goes with my uniform very well and is WARM! I love it so much!...!"
It's great in almost any weather: "This is my favorite jacket," a shopper noted. "I wear it year round, all the time. It's warm and comfortable and makes me feel outdoorsy without actually having to leave my house. My office is always so cold so I wear it in there and it keeps me nice and warm. It's the perfect transition jacket between fall and winter and winter and spring. It's also great for layering. I cannot say enough good things about this jacket. It is my everything."
