Rated 5 out of 5 by nice vest! cozy, soft & warm...fits great & made to last April 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for layering! Love this vest! Living in Northern California with a 30 degree temperature makes this the perfect layering item. Good zippers and perfect weight makes it a favorite. March 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this vest! I really liked the bold colors and the strong zipper. The pockets are such that if I needed, I could store my kindle. Awesome vest! March 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by So warm This vest is perfect the winter that we are having in the east so far. It's warm and cozy. December 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it thank you Fits perfect I love it thank you so much December 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great vests! Love these! Since I tend to be hot natured, I wear one as a coat the entire winter; unless I'm up in the mountains, a vest, scarf, and gloves are perfect for keeping warm. Also, the zippered pockets are large enough to take the place of a purse for essentials if I want to keep my hands free ~ at times I have even carried a bottle of water in one. Since I wear a vest almost every day, I have 4 of them in different colors ~ definitely one of the best and most versatile pieces of clothing I've ever bought. December 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Classic keeps me warm. Classic fit a powder blue perfect. thought the material was a little thinner then usually but it keeps me warm. December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful even if a bit big I purchased this vest after searching high and low for 3 months to find just the one I was looking for. This was the closest I found. I recently purchased a Lady D down coat in the exact same size and it is a bit snug so be aware the sizes do fluctuate. It is a nice vest, warm, soft and comfortable. I think a more versatile color may be a wiser choice since it can be tough to pair many long sleeve shirts to some of the vest colors. I went with the plum and it looks very nice with a black base layer top. December 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfection! Great item to wear in almost every season - outdoors in the winter months and even in air conditioning in the summer months. Fit was great. Highly recommend. December 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful quality... Runs a little large.. Good quality items are made to fit correctly and I'm used to having to order larger on less quality items... Will continue to order these quality items in the smaller size❤️ December 12, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by It's Only Okay I bought two of these vests to wear over long-sleeved t-shirts and scrub pants at work, so I don't need them to be mountaineering quality, but for the price, I find these to be a bit thin and featureless. For the price, I was expecting a heavier fleece. For the price, I was expecting adjustable elastic around the bottom hem. This is a very, very basic and lightweight vest. The colors are true to the website, and very nice. They are true-to-size. I would recommend this product, but only with a discount or coupon. November 25, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Color not as expected The color of the vest I received is way off. It is turquoise/jade green. The color shown on my screen (emerald) is a very different color (and much darker) than the one I got. Since I have muddy paws around, the lighter color shows too much. Prob would spend most of its life in the laundry basket. The fit and length are good. November 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by travelling grandma Love this plush vest. The color plum is great. The vest is soft and comfortable. I know I will get a lot of wear from it. October 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vest is perfect! Soft ,looks good on ,fits well and have received compliments on the color! June 26, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by great looking item I love this Spring Fleece Vest, sleeveless, and the color is really neat, Pink, It does run a tinch small, but it is fitted, so i think that is why. Price was super too. April 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So great, I bought two. I purchased one of these for my mother for Christmas 2013. It seemed like half the time I went to visit them in the cooler months, she'd be wearing it around the house. I bought her one of a different color for Christmas of 2014! At this point I didn't even care because I new she loved it. January 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very soft! I love this vest! I have been wanting one for a while now and came across this. I ordered a 1X and it fits very well. Zip pockets are always a plus as well. November 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish & Cute this vest is comfortable and stylish. It fits true to size. I'm a 2X and it fits perfect. Highly recommended! November 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great vests! I needed a vest with pockets. It also needed to be longer. These vests are perfect and very comfortable. November 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this vest! I have found vests to be difficult to fit. This one is great. Snug--not tight. Have only worn it once so far, but I was pleased with the way it looked on me and the compliments I received while wearing it. If it helps, I am a plus size and this ran true to size. October 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful wardrobe addition Nice feel, nice fit, very warm. Ordered in 3 different colors - can't wait for winter to get here. I'm usually warm but sometimes have a colder work environment so a fleece vest will be perfect. Wore it once already on a fall, outdoor day - perfect for that as well. September 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great vest Great product and great price. Your customer service staff is very helpful and friendly. Thanks so much March 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Columbia Vests! Love Columbia vests! Great for most weather months in NC. Looked in stores for the Sea Salt color, finally just ordered online. Love it! Purchased larger size to allow for shrinkage since I throw them in the dryer. March 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the vest Just enough to keep the core warm. March 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Functional and Fashionable Flattering with the princess lines. I think they fit a little snug for my taste. Not too small or tight, just snug. So I ordered up one size and I love it. So warm and cozy. I have had three for 7 years and wanted new ones for a trip to Europe in May. Planning to wear the vest (bought three in different colors) most everyday with slacks, long or three quarter sleeve tops with scarf to match. You can dress up or down with these vest. So comfortable for flying too. Want my chest warm and my arms free. March 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect fit I teach in a high school where the temp varies. I have a vest in almost every color so that I can wear as needed. March 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these vests I have 3 of them, and I love them all. March 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vests Add just enough warmth by themselves and a lot of warmth when paired with a jacket. Love them - so pretty! March 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful vests! As a large sized female I usually end up buying men's vests, which means they never come in pretty colors! So when I saw these lovely women's vests in extended sizes, for a very reasonable price, I decided to take a chance and order two, although I never purchase clothes on-line. I was thrilled when I received them, and I immediately purchased 2 more! Got many compliments on the colors, and both of my sisters ordered their own, after seeing how well mine fit. Great brand, great product, great value, great fit! March 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Runs a little big but love this vest I love the color of the gray, in my opinion it's what gray should look like! I bought a 2X and dare say I could almost wear a 1X. I usually wear a 2X in jackets. I'm keeping it though because I like the little bit of extra room. It's soft and warm. February 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Great color, great fit, love the material , worm but not bulky. The only change I would make is to add an adjustable draw string at the bottom. Will look for additional colors February 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Benton Springs Fleece Vest I have worn these vests for several years and I love them. They are just right for fall and winter when you don't really need a full sweater or sweatshirt. They are very pretty and soft. They launder good and are very good quality. I have 4. February 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Warm & Cozy Fits well, lightweight yet durable, and the color stays bright after washing. January 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Vest Love this vest the groovy pink is a great colour. January 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice layering piece! You won't regret this fleece vest - soft, warm, and the perfect layering piece for the colder months. The fit on this is great - the princess seams keep it fashionable and the length provides good coverage/warmth. So glad Columbia makes beautiful & functional clothes in true plus sizes! January 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by vest I ordered a fleece vest online from Columbia. I received it when they told it would be here and I love it. Fits great and looks even better. Thank you for quality products! January 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love Columbia vests!! I already had a pale blue and periwinkle fleece vest and ordered the kiwi one. Absolutely love them all! The fit, the colors, the warmth, the price--all excellent!! January 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Plus sizes It's often hard to find some name brands of this quality for women who are plus sizes. If you can find them usually their selection may be out of stock which is disappointing when you want a gift for someone special. This is my second Christmas buying from Columbia. Once again, Columbia came through for me. Not only was I able to have the quality but color choices in plus sizes. January 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by True to Size. I don't order a lot of clothing online, especially for other people. But this vest was true to size and fit well. December 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than expected Like the roomy armholes, wish the vest weren't quite so long. Comfortable when wearing in the car, may buy another soon. December 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I love the feel and fit of the vest! December 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Three are Better Than One I now own 3 of these vests because I like them so well. They are functional, but do not have the sleeves which is perfect for a person like me who easily gets too warm. They wash and wear well and I believe they are flattering. November 21, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Decent Vest Overall I like this vest. It fits a little loose which doesn't bother me. I wish it was a little longer, it comes about belt length. Soft material, doesn't attract lint or dirt. I normally wear a 1-2x in jackets depending on brand and cut, I purchased the 3x and if I bought a second I would buy a 2x. November 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Vest I've purchased many other fleece vests in plus sizes previously, but the Columbia Benton Springs Vest is by far the best of the bunch. It has a nice tailored fit, great zippered pockets, good cut to the shoulders (not too wide) and the color selection is the best. I think it fit a tad large at 1X, but if you layer a lot, it's probably perfect. I live at 7000' altitude and this is the perfect outer wear for much of the year. Received quickly as promised. November 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by plus size vest with zippered pockets This product runs very large. I usually find that products run smaller than charts indicate. This vest is at least one size larger I ordered 2x and am drowning in it October 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just What I Wanted My husband and I are both in our seventies and we try to get out and walk every day. I was searching for something to wear that would keep my torso warm without restricting my arm movements. These vests are exactly what I wanted. They are comfortable and are just the right layer for these fall days. When the rains come (and I know they will come) I plan to wear the vest underneath my water proof jacket. Also we like to keep our house pretty cool. These vests give the perfect amount of warmth and comfort for days when I am quilting all day. Plus I look pretty darn good! September 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The vest has great features. The color is great and the product itself is very fashionable and wearable in all types of weather. August 30, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love the vest. I love the vest, however the color was not at all what I expected. The online photo shows more of a pumpkin color, but the actual color of the vest is neon orange. The quality of workmanship is excellent. The fit is true to size. May 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ideal for staying warm in the office! I am very pleased with this product. My first purchase of this product was at Schells, but they didn't have many color choices in their store in my size. I was happy to find your product online. Thanks for providing my size. April 24, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Product Size Inconsistent This is a nice vest and I have three I previously purchased and wear all the time. It wears well and washes up nicely. I have two in size 2x and one in size 3x that I purchased at a local store. I decided to check online for one in a different color. I was excited to find the same vest in multiple colors. I ordered a 3x, but when I tried it on, it was smaller than the size 2x and 3x I previously purchased. Columbia is such a nice quality, so I was disappointed that the sizing wasn't consistent. The size may have been marked incorrectly on this particular vest, but I will not take a chance in ordering another one due to the high cost for return shipping. March 21, 2013
