Thank you to Columbia Sportswear Company for providing me with product in exchange for this honest blog review. All opinions are 100% my own.

Columbia specializes in outdoor apparel for your entire family. They have everything from hats to tops, bottoms, and shoes.

During the winter, I am usually cold. I almost always dress in layers. I specifically look for tops that I think will help me retain heat and stay comfortable. I found three new tops at Columbia, that I thought would be nice for this winter.

For my review, I received a Hideaway Haven Cabled Crew Neck Sweater, Castella Peak Striped Hoodie, and Tested Tough in Pink Camouflage Fleece Hoodie.


A Hideaway Haven Cabled Crew Neck Sweater is made with a soft cotton-wool blend. The cable knit pattern is easy to dress up or dress down. I wear the Hideaway Haven Cabled Crew Neck Sweater with a long-sleeved t-shirt, scarf, jeans, and boots. I wore this to my daughters’ school one day. One of their teachers stopped me and told me how good I looked that day.


The Castella Peak Striped Hoodie is designed to move with you. It has a roomy cut and is perfect for layering. The material used for the Castella Peak Striped Hoodie is unlike anything I have ever seen. The seems sometimes irritate my skin so I make sure I wear the hoodie with an undershirt. I enjoy wearing this top with jeans and my Nike shoes. It is perfect for a day at the park with my kiddos.

A Tested Tough in Pink Camouflage Fleece Hoodie shows her support for breast cancer research. The hoodie has a snug active fit. Thumb holes and two pockets keep her hands warm. I adore this hoodie. It is lightweight but keeps me warm. The fleece material is super soft. I absolutely love this hoodie. I usually wear this top with jeans and my white Converse shoes. It is great for running errands in.

Proceeds from the sale of the Tested Tough in Pink Camouflage Fleece Hoodie help fund the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s key prevention programs.
