User Review: Columbia Boys' Steens Mountain Full Zip
Source: bought it new
Excellent basic fleece, our son loves it
- Reasonably price
Got this for my son for Christmas and it immediately became his go-to jacket (by his own choosing). Now no matter what the weather, no matter what the temperature, he wants to wear this fleece — and he's always bummed when we make him wear his heavier coat when it's too cold and/or windy for a fleece. And this from a boy that generally doesn't give a hoot about what he wears!
He loves the soft wear of the fleece and it looks really handsome and masculine on him. The full-length zipper and raised collar make this more useful and easier to get on and off than a 1/4 zip fleece. It's a mid-weight fleece providing good warmth for its weight and it seems well-constructed and has been trouble free after a season of nearly daily use.
My son (7) is a little bit big for his age and we got him the 10/12, it's kind of big on him but still functional and with room to grow — he'll definitely get at least a couple of seasons out of it.
We paid $20 for it at a local department store, and it has proven to be a super purchase. Sturdy, understated but stylish, really comfy, and most importantly he loves it. Thumbs up!
