Men’s Cascades Explorer™ Fleece Vest is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vest is GREAT! Shipped promptly. Vest was as advertised. Wasn't too small as some reviews reported. Just right. Fits great and is just perfect for early spring or late winter days. I live in Texas where the mornings can be cool but then it quickly warms to the 80s. This is perfect for putting on in the morning and taking it off by lunch. Seem to wash and wear perfectly. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Vest I live in Florida at a nature center, so my work takes me inside and out. I found that this vest is excellent for the kind of work I do IN THE WINTER. Florida doesn't get that cold, and the afternoons are usually pretty warm even in January, so this vest is great to wear in the mornings during the fall and spring, and all day in the winter. It keeps me looking professional at work and keeps me warm, but not too warm cause again, this is Florida. I love that it has the extra pockets inside so I can hide "treasures" from my students like cool rocks or bones. having the outer pockets zippered is also very useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cascades Fleece Vest - GREAT !! I'm happy with the purchase. It's replacing an older fleece vest i've owned. Great for my travels. Lite weight, easy to pack. Fit is true to size, zippers and stitching is perfect. I got the Collegiate Navy. The colour is hand is a bit darker than the website shows. More of a royal blue - less purple :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I ordered the Cinder Heather because of the picture that was advertised but got something else Number one, I am mad that I paid for shipping when I could have bought this on Amazon with free shipping. I chose Columbia because of the color of the Cinder Heather vest in the on-line catalog. It is all one color on this site! On Amazon, the vest in Cinder Heather is TWO-TONED with the zipper and trim a very dark color. On the Columbia site, the vest is all one pleasant color ---- this is what my husband wanted so I paid the $6 for shipping. Number two, I am going to have to pay shipping to have the thing sent back. Grrrrrrr!
