Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket! This is the perfect jacket for NC winters. I can get by with just the vest on about 75-80% of the cold fall thru spring days. Wear it all the time! Warm without all the bulk. The medium fits true to me as an athletic 175 lb build. March 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice and toasty I am very impressed with the warmth of the vest,a plesant surprise coming from a vest.highly recommend it to anyone.. March 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Fits well, excellent! February 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Friend was right I live just south of Atlanta GA and play golf year round (as long as temp above 37 to start) -- a friend recommended this vest -- and he was RIGHT. I have several vests (including down models) and this is the BEST cold weather vest I have. The special lining print works well. I heartily recommend - warmly recommend too! February 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Suprisingly Warm I bought this primarily to add extra warmth in my parka for extremely cold days (10deg.F or less) when I plan to be outside for an extended time, and to that purpose, this vest works great. Those omni-heat silver dots, which I assumed were going to be some sort of marketing gimmick, actually do work and work very well. On top of that, the vest is very light and doesn't restrict movement. Another small but significant feature is that the pockets are behind the insulation, so they actually warm your hands. I've seen many coats and vests fail at that small detail. The only negative so far is that it does run large. I'm 5'-11", 190lbs with a 42" chest; a typical large fits me 99% of the time in most clothing. This vest is a little baggy on me and I wish that I would have ordered a medium, but the price has since gone up since I ordered so I'm keeping this one. The extra room in the vest should be enough for a heavy fleece jacket under it (which would eliminate the need for the parka completely in fair weather), but if you're looking for a trimmer, snugger fit, I'd recommend ordering a size smaller than you usually do. I should also mention that my praise is based upon the price that I paid; $65. Had it been full price, I never would have purchased it nor would I recommend anyone else to. You can get better vests for $130. February 12, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Examine garment carefully before wearing My husband was really pleased with the vest, but, the first time he wore it he noticed that the lining had pulled away from the body of the vest causing a 2” gap. The stitching had not caught enough of the fabric to hold the lining in place. As I had not kept the packaging I did not feel that I could return it, so, I will probably hand sew the lining back in place. I have always felt that Columbia Sportswear produced a quality product and was disappointed to discover this flaw. In the future I will examine each garment carefully before it is worn. If it had not been for the lining issue I would have rated this product "Excellent". February 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Puffy but not obnoxious! Warm and true to size. January 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Vest I bought this vest to replace one I have had for 8 years. This one is warmer and fits better. I was so pleased I bought the full size jacket. This is warm, gives great freedom of movement and fits well. The reflective heat leader is great! I do a lot of pistol shooting and this allows me great freedom of movement when I do completion shooting without restriction. This vest keeps me warm while allowing my arms unrestricted movement. Great warmth. December 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gold 650 vest This is one of the most versitale layers/outergaents i have owned. The weight/bulk to warmth ratio is astounding. Works well as outler layer for moderate days and is slim enough to fit precidely under a softshell for cold days. Hard to believe ive gone without this ling in the northeast where temps can start in the 20s then "soar" to the mid 50s by the afternoon. Two recommindations for future designs: please add vertical chest pocket for wallet/phone and consider fleece liner on collar against skin to avoid any eventual sweat/funk buildup. Great product.
