Rated 5 out of 5 by 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! It's great for layering, a cute additive to a winter/fall outfit, and it's so comfortable! Definitely getting another one in black! November 12, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite Vest This is my favorite fleece vest by far. It even fits my long, tall body. I wear these all winter. Love them. August 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product fits very well Love the way it fits! Just enough room to wear a long sleeve shirt underneath without it feeling too tight! August 20, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs Small I ordered this vest in a medium and after washing and drying I have realized that it runs small. I can only wear it if I don't zip it up. Still a very nice product just order a size up. August 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Vest Only gave it 4 stars for now as I live in Florida and don't anticipate wearing this any time soon unless I travel. Looks good, fits well, seems very functional. As a Floridian I can see this being a go-to item and if I travel as a layering piece. Great sale price too. August 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for spring. As April came, I could not bear to wear my black vest. This is great for a cool spring morning. May 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great vest! Such a good vest! It is so comfy and I love wearing it. It runs true to size and fits really well. May 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable vest, but sizing.. According to my last experience (a jacket), so I ordered the size XL. However, it's a little bit larger than what I have expected. So I ordered another L. It fits well, but not with a sweater -- only can wear t-shirt under the vest. But, I must say that this vest is very soft and comfortable -- not for windy weather. I wear it almost everyday indoors and outdoors in the cool weather. Will recommend this to others. April 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Vest This vest is warm, comfortable and stylish. I own several of them and am very happy with the product overall. April 21, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fleece vest I love these vests. They do run small, but the fleece is so soft and the colors are pretty. March 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I love it, will recommend March 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great warm vest I got the baby blue color and an XS. I'm 5'2' and about 115 and it fits great. I usually wear a S so think this runs a touch small. Great buy - February 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great shipping and just enough warmth! I purchased this for my mother and she was impressed with the shipping! Received within two days of purchase! I don't know how your sales system is but thumbs up! Efficient yet good quality. Not enough warmth but it will suffice for PNW weather. February 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Surprise It was a gift for my daughter and she had been looking for one for a long time.. She was very pleased with the vest and fits perfect.... February 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by vest Great vest, daughter loved it January 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very comfortable I love wearing my vest, but I ordered black and it is not a true black. It is more of a charcoal gray. January 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect running vest I use this vest to run in and it keeps me warm though out the run! January 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Columbia Vest This was a gift for my daughter, she loves it. January 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect Fit is excellent. The XS is not too small. Fits good, keeps me warm and looks good. December 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fleece vest Very soft and pretty. Last good and are well made. February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great vest Love everything about the vest, it is it everything you would expect in a Columbia product! January 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT PRODUCT! This vest is a great value and a great fit! Would recommend for sure! January 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great vest! Vest fits nicely, is well-made, and very soft. Surprisingly warm. December 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Daughter loved her vest! Vest exceeded daughter's expectations and was delivered in a timely manner December 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Vest! Bought this for my daughter for Christmas. She loves it! Very soft and comfortable. Great fit, not too bulky! December 27, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
