Think about ordering two sizes down... I really like this vest for 3-season wear over a long or short sleeved T in central NC, and under a light jacket in winter. Great colors, really soft. Wish it were a little longer (or scooped) and had a "princess seam fitting," for a more feminine, not tight, fit. The Medium I ordered had 4 inches extra to grab down the sides (I'm a 38 chest) so I reordered two sizes down figuring on an extra 3-4 inches---It's cut very wide and boxy, and has about 1/2 inch stretch to it, so consider that when ordering: what you wear it over and what fit you like. The price/quality are good, so I will make a little compromise in the style and just order smaller. February 12, 2011
Perfect running vest I use this vest to run in and it keeps me warm though out the run! January 4, 2015
Columbia Vest This was a gift for my daughter, she loves it. January 3, 2015
Just what I wanted! I bought one of these vests in a large for myself and one in a extra small for my mother. We both love the fit. They aren't bulky and fit a female form very attractively. Although not very thick ,still a perfect warmth layer both for outdoors and in the house. I'm going to get more. And the color ( blue,and one in tropical pink) was pretty. December 29, 2014
Perfect Gift My daughter was very excited to receive this vest as a gift for Christmas. She wore it all day, and I know this will be one of her closet favorites. December 27, 2014
perfect Fit is excellent. The XS is not too small. Fits good, keeps me warm and looks good. December 13, 2014
Does the job I bought this vest based on the one my daughter has. Couldn't find the exact match but this is as close as I could get. It's a bit thinner than I had hoped for, but I do like the fit and color. You can't beat the price and I would purchase another. Hey Columbia can you make one in brown? December 9, 2014
Keeps me warm! I love this vest! It keeps me warm and the material is very soft. I love having a vest so I'm not putting layers upon layers of sleeves to get bunched up under my jacket. December 9, 2014
Love It I'm glad I ordered a size smaller than what I actually measured. I'm normally an XL, but the L fits me perfectly. It is snug in all the right places, which is what I was aiming for. Definitely keeps me warm whether it's under a jacket/coat or worn by itself. The quality is excellent and the material is very soft. I got it in black, which appears almost like a muted black (not intense or deep in color), but this does not bother me. I am definitely considering purchasing more! November 13, 2014
Great Vest, but white color (sea salt) is see-through I ordered this vest online and it's a nice, thin fleece material that I can tell would be really comfortable. When I tried it on, I was disappointed to see that the white is see-through, especially in the top half where there are no pockets. I didn't like the look of being able to see the tag on the side and the color of my shirt through the top area, so I am going to return it for a charcoal colored vest! I would just discourage from purchasing the white if it would bother you when it's see through. October 6, 2014
Perfect product I am looking for a vest for a while. This is perfect one no matter the size or the color. March 3, 2014
Fleece vest Very soft and pretty. Last good and are well made. February 6, 2014
Great vest This vest fits well and looks great. I'm always worried that a vest will fit good through the chest but not the hips. This vest fit perfectly for me who has hips but not a large chest. February 3, 2014
This vest is my favorite, which is why I have 2 already! The fit is very is so comfortable and warm, yet light weight enough to be worn inside. It is very functional and can be dressed up or down. I love that it is easy to clean and still looks brand new after being washed. I highly recommend this vest! January 27, 2014
Cuddly and warm vest I have ordered several of these vests to wear under a blazer. They do the trick to add another level of warmth, without being too bulky or heavy. January 20, 2014
Good quality I purchased this vest after having been very disappointed in a recent Woolrich vest that I returned. This is a solid vest and good looking. January 19, 2014
Great vest I love this vest. I have it in black, gray and white. I have had the black one for years. It washes great. I took it with me to South America and it was perfect. I wear a small in this vest and I am a size 8. It runs slightly large. I can zip with perfect room. These vests are great. January 14, 2014
Great vest Love everything about the vest, it is it everything you would expect in a Columbia product! January 13, 2014
My new favorite vest As soon as I put on this vest, I knew I would be wearing it a lot! It's a great layering tool for being able to match my clothing to the weather conditions, very important in the changeable northwest! I love the fit and the zippered hand pockets. The color runs more toward pink than red, but that's OK, maybe I need more pink in my life. Ha! The only small complaint I have about it is that the zipper seems like it might not hold up for years and years; I'm just being gentle with it. Other than that, I love this vest! January 11, 2014
GREAT PRODUCT! This vest is a great value and a great fit! Would recommend for sure! January 2, 2014
Great vest! Vest fits nicely, is well-made, and very soft. Surprisingly warm. December 29, 2013
Daughter loved her vest! Vest exceeded daughter's expectations and was delivered in a timely manner December 28, 2013
Light and warm I decided that I needed to order a large when I tend to fit in medium-sized clothes. Wish I had ordered a medium because this garment fits true to size. The good aspect of it being overlarge is that I can layer heavier garments under the vest. The weight is light, but the fleece is warm. The garment is well-made. The black color absorbs light which makes it extra warm in the Tucson sun. December 27, 2013
Awesome Vest! Bought this for my daughter for Christmas. She loves it! Very soft and comfortable. Great fit, not too bulky! December 27, 2013
Women's fleece vest The product is fine. If you know what size you usually order from online stores, you will want to go down one size with Columbia. Maybe even two sizes if you like things fitted. December 26, 2013
Outstanding Easy to use website. Recieved my order in record time. I would highly recommend using Columbia for quality products and great customer service. December 23, 2013
simple comfortable reasonably priced fleece vest In an XS size, this is a slim fitting vest, perfect for over a turtleneck and staying warm. Nice lines to it. More colors choices are needed. December 19, 2013
Awesome vest Great quality and excellent fit December 18, 2013
Vest The pink is a bit bright, but the grey is great and both are excellent quality. December 12, 2013
Present for wife Columbia never disappoints. True fit, great quality. Highly recommend. December 8, 2013
Product lives up to its description! I had shopped for a fleece vest for a long time and looked and a variety of different brands. I have known the Columbia brand having worked in retail and know it to be a quality brand. I saw this vest on the website and decided to give it a try. I am glad I did. It is a good fit, provides good core warmth, is extremely soft and a great value! I would certainly buy another! December 6, 2013
Women's Benton Vest I absolutely love this vest ... this is my third one! It's very light weight, but provides warmth without the bulk, and it looks great. December 3, 2013
Great fit, Good Quality This is the first Columbia Vest I have owned. Love the quality, color and fit. Will certainly recommend to my family and friends. And, will purchase additional items in the future. I am very satisfied with my purchase. December 2, 2013
Fit is a problem I started with a 1X assuming true to size. Returned it for XL. Returned that for a Large. Satisfied now. December 1, 2013
I love this vest and think it's a great buy for the money. I already have it in 2 colors: black and a nice rich medium blue. ...but However, this year's colors seem way too bright to me. The bright red I recently ordered is close to a neon orange, not a very flattering color. I plan to return it and wait to see if your colors are less intense next year. November 29, 2013
Great InVESTment I bought the Benton Springs Vest in two colors, and bought two more for gifts. Warm, soft and comfortable -- not too form-fitting, and slightly longer in the back for a flattering fit. Weight is a little lighter than most, which makes it a good layering piece. Excellent value. November 27, 2013
Perfect fit I was leary to order this vest online as Columbia products were always cut too straight for a curvy figure. After reading the reviews I decided to give it a try and ordered a Medium. Very pleased that I did, as it fits perfectly in the hip area, and I love the colour of the deep blush. November 25, 2013
really like the purple, but had hoped for a dark blue nice vest, fits fine and true to size...comfy and warm. What I really want Columbia to bring back is the jacket with a hood like they had 2 yrs ago, and in good ol' standard colors. November 22, 2013
Bright vest These are a bit longer than other fleece vests, but I like that. It fits well below the waist. The color is bright and cheerful and the fabric is of nice quality. November 22, 2013
warm Not as warm as a fleece with sleeves for wearing in the house or outside as an extra layer with less bulk. November 9, 2013
Excellent Product, sized perfectly I always shy away from buying clothes online because I never know if they'll fit quite right. I always worry that an item will be snug on the hips, or not long enough down the back. When I saw that this product has a feature called 'Fit' and it was marked "true to size", I was convinced to give it a try. I was extremely happy when the vest arrived and it fit perfectly! October 30, 2013
Fleece Vest--too small Apparently, this vest runs really small. I had to return it. October 28, 2013
great product I ordered the vest and love it! It is a perfect fit and is very comfortable. Great price too. I ordered the color black and look forward to ordering more colors : ) October 23, 2013
Disappointed My previous vest I've had for 8 yrs & the fleece is just the right thickness to keep me warm and barely looks like it's been used. The zipper actually broke first. This one I had to return because it was way to big, and the fleece felt a lot thinner then my 'old' one. I was going to exchange it, but I don't think so. October 22, 2013
great fleece vest for active women I bought this vest in 3 colors. Love the zippered pockets, the higher collar which is perfect when the wind blows, the quality is apparent the minute you put it on. I bought red for tennis, gray and black for running or hiking or even to wear to work. Columbia is always a company I depend on as all the clothes I buy fit perfectly. October 20, 2013
great vest This vest is a great value. Fits nicely, and keeps me warm. October 20, 2013
too wide I returned this vest. I was looking for a more tapered fit and this was too boxy. I wish it had worked out because it looked like a nice vest. October 18, 2013
Just what I wanted It is very well made with external zip pockets and one inside deep pocket. The weight is just right when you just need a little something extra. Being true to size is very important when buying online and this fit perfectly. October 16, 2013
Birthday Present for Daughter in College My daughter loved this vest from the moment she opened it. It fit her perfectly. She always wears a small or xtra small. The small gives her a little more room to wear a sweater under it. September 22, 2013
Good product; colors not completely true I purchased two vests, one black & one red. The "true red" color was more on the orange side than a true red. I wasn't completely satisfied, but I did keep the item. The black vest was more dark gray than true black. I returned the item because the left armhole was larger than the right, creating too much extra fabric in that area. If I had tried this vest on in a store I would not have purchased it for that reason. Overall, I have liked most every Columbia clothing product I have purchased. September 18, 2013
