I Love Half Zips
Over the last couple of years, i seem to have developed some type of infatuation with half-zip pullovers. seriously... I don't know what it is... It has gotten out of control. I now own around 15 half zips from a wide range of brands. Merrell, Marmot, Mountain Hardware, Patagonia, Sierra Designs, Outdoor Research, Mammut, Arc'teryx, Oakley, and of course, Columbia. it still baffles me how Columbia keeps up in terms of quality and comfort with all of these other brands when they are pricing things at half of what the other brands sell them for. This pullover is now one of my favorites. It is actually a little lighter than i was expecting, but I have come to really enjoy it. Take it from a Half-Zip connoisseur of sorts... This pullover is quite a good deal.

Great Lightweight Microfleece
I recently purchased the Columbia Klamath Range II from Altrec during an after-Christmas sale. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the purchase and would recommend this to anyone looking for an inexpensive, lightweight microfleece. I primarily use this as a replacement for a long-sleeve shirt to wear on weekends during the Seattle winter. It's warm enough to wear with just a short-sleeve shirt underneath in about 55 degree+ weather, but you'll probably want to wear another layer on top if the temperature drops any lower. I am 5'6, 145 pounds and the small fits me perfectly with a base layer underneath. I normally wear between a small and a medium depending on the fit, so I'd say the fit runs slightly large.

Have purchased Columbia microfleece in the past and just added the Klamath 1/2 zip to my collection. These are very low maintenance shirt/jackets and I like them because they are warm when you need it to be but as the day warms up they remain comfortable. I plan to purchase another couple of colors !

great fleece, great weight
It is hard to find lightweight fleece, but in a lot of situations they are exactly what I want. I had one of these with me when I was recently in Europe for about a month, and I wore it almost every day. When I got back home it seemed like having only one was not enough, so I got another one. A person needs heavier weights too, but this is a great addition. It also takes up almost no room packing, or it fits easily with what you carry onto a plane, where it's also just the right thing to wear.

Awesome Columbia Half Zip
This is one of the warmest and most comfortable shirts I own. I actually bought 2 in different colors so I could wear one more often. It's now fall in Wisconsin and this Columbia half zip is perfect for afternoon walks when a coat isn't needed quite yet. I have other Columbia coats, shirts sweaters etc. I have always felt the Columbia name means quality and the half zip it yet another example of this.
