Rated 5 out of 5 by correction on sizing Earlier I posted a review regarding this vest. However, I would like to correct my sizing selection. I suggested this vest runs about true to size. I don"t know that for sure . I typically take a medium but medium was not available in black so I ordered the large . With a 38 chest the large is a bit big but will still work with my layering process. March 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Omni Heat feature does work. As noted above this vest is well made. Not bulky, light weight and you can feel some warmth generated by the Omni Heat feature. I will be using this vest as I layer my clothing during Hunting seasons here in New York State. Perhaps I can give a follow up review after this years hunting season. March 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Vest The fabric has an nice feel and is very soft. It's not too bulky like some of my older vest yet it still provides excellent warmth. It's very cold now but I expect to get a lot of use out of this in the spring and falls months. January 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this vest! Not only does this vest fit perfectly, but it's warm and stylist. I can wear it alone or under another jacket since it is not bulky. It is a great vest, and I strongly recommend it! January 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The vest The vest was a present for Christmas. My son-in-law loves the vest! January 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great fit This vest keeps you warm yet very flexible while wearing it December 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good construction Perfect for cool day or evening in S CA winter. Very light weight. Runs true to size. Quite warm for the very light weight. February 16, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by A good purchase When the vest arrived it was everything that I have come to expect to get from Columbia Sportswear products. The construction is good, fit was right on, unfortunately when I finally received it the temperature rose so I have not been able to use it extensively. The only issue I have with the vest is that I ordered it in Gold Leaf and it apparently there were black or dark feathers used. Not a lot however, they are visible with that color. When I first put it on I thought it was a smudge or dirty spot when I noticed about three more. This is the only reason I rated it with four out of five in quality. As I intend to use this as a layer under other items I'm not concerned. If this would be an issue for anyone considering this item stay with the Black or Ebony Blue. January 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfy vest This isn't your dad's puffy down vest. This is a relatively thin vest but still warm. Being thin it works well as a layer below a shell. I enjoy the freedom of motion i get from a vest (with no shoulder or arm constriction). The reflective surface inside the vest might be adding some heat too, it certainly doesn't hurt. Vest seems well built and is a nice length (I am tall and it doesn't ride up). January 15, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Men's Power Fly Vest Very light weight and warm! January 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A little snug at waist I wear a 42 jacket and 36 waist trouser, the POWERFLY fit perfectly for a 42 chest, but was just a bit snug at the waist. perhaps at the waist at the sides of the vest, provision might be made to allow an easing of the fit. Alternatively, the zipper might be be re-fitted with a two-way zipper, so that once the upper-most zipper is pulled up, the wearer might, while seated, or for other reason of comfort may, using the lower toggle of the double zipper, pull the second toggle upward; in so doing effectively increasing the waist dimension. I would enjoy learning if the decision is made to accept either of my recommendations. It would be a further encouragement to complete future requests for comment. January 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very true to size. Warm light-weight vest. This is exactly what I want in a vest. December 31, 2012
