Weekends are where it’s at; and the Steen’s Mountain Full Zip fleece is perfect for those casual days when comfort is at a premium but performance is still a factor.
Nice fleece, poor zipper

I have three of these in different colors. They are my favorite fleece zip-ups, and I wear them all the time. The other thing they have in common is that the zippers are very cheap. For some reason, Columbia has put plastic zippers (the part that seams the two halves together) on these, and after about a year of use and washing, the loop that the zipper pull attaches to breaks off in the wash. This leaves you with a nice fleece that has a jagged piece of plastic as your only way to zip and unzip it. For $36 I expect to get a decent zipper.
