Here's what other sites are saying:

From a moonlit showshoe hike on the west shore of Lake Tahoe to a quick ascent up Mt Rose, the Columbia Men's Heat Elite II Fleece Jacket is warmer than a traditional fleece and lighter than your winter parka; in other words, it's perfect for cold weather aerobic endeavors. Made from plush polyester fleece, this full zip jacket has tough nylon panels to resist abrasion in high wear areas. The reflective Omni-Heat lining keeps you toasty warm and still lets body vapor escape through the breathable fleece. Treated with an Omni-Shield finish, this winter jacket will shed light moisture and resist stains from the occasional spilled hot chocolate. Velcro tabs at the cuffs and a drawcord at the hem help seal in body heat and 2 zippered front pockets are compatible with your backpack hip belt. Articulated elbows and 2-way stretch fabric reduce bulk and give you lots of mobility as you scramble over boulders or attempt to win a snowball fight. You may be rugged but we know your chin will love the soft touch of the micro-chamois chin guard. Offering high-end features and breathable performance in a lightweight package, the Columbia Heat Elite II Fleece Jacket for men looks as good as it feels.

Whether you’re bombing through tight-knit glades or making a mad dash for the summit before the storm hits, warmth is good; bulk is not. Thanks to space-age heat retention technology, we give you a lightweight fleece that you can wear like a big bad parka. Omni-Heat thermal reflective and burly plush bonded fleece combine in a bonanza of lightweight warmth that’s totally breathable and moisture wicking. Reinforcement in the shoulders and chest add durability and protection as you’re rubbing elbows with snow-covered pines. The Heat Elite is also windproof, ultra-warm, and divinely comfortable with 2-way comfort stretch and articulated elbows to enhance mobility. Underarm vents can be unzipped to disperse excess heat.

- Columbia refers to the men's version

Whether you're layering it under a ski shell or sporting it alone on unseasonably cold fall and spring days, you have the cold beat with the Columbia Men's Heat Elite II Jacket. Plush fleece and abrasion- and wind-resistant nylon oxford are backed by the thermal reflective Omni-Heat lining that bottles in warmth generated by your body. But Columbia was not satisfied with that, oh, noit also packed in 80g insulation to make extra-sure you won't be shivering in your snow boots.
