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 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
Light weight but warm with great color options! I use this vest for my work outdoors with urban youth. I love it for fall and spring when I don't want to be taking layers on and off all day. The fleece is warm enough to keep your core warm on chilly mornings/evenings, but light enough to breath and wear all day! September 16, 2013
thos product is excellent in all senses. Excellent. That's all. July 2, 2013
Sleeveless Fleece Vest Perfect. Bought for layering on a 2 week trip to the Baltics where temps vary throughout the day. Wore every day. Very pleased with the look and performance. Runs true to size. June 4, 2013
Fits perfectly I was looking for a light weight vest to wear over a tee shirt. Some vests are too bulky and warm. I purchased the small based on the size chart. I am 5' 7"and 122 lbs. June 1, 2013
Color ???? Although this is an excellent vest, the color on the internet was listed as Violet. It was not any shade of violet, and I would call it Magenta or some type of pink. I had ordered these for a group of volunteers and unfortunately, had to pay over $20.00 to have them returned. Tough when working on donations from sponsors. It would be wise to change the color noun to something closer to the true color. PCH May 31, 2013
Love my Benton Springs fleece vest! I'm a return customer annually for at least one fleece vest. The garment washes well, and is very comfortable to wear. I especially like the light weight and ease of packing! May 30, 2013
not as good as it was The fabric was not as good as in the one I ordered about ten years ago. May 23, 2013
Great for Layering I just bought this vest. I'm taking it as part of layering for an upcoming vacation to Alaska. We were advised to prepare for all kinds of weather so this will be worn over a couple of long-sleeved layers and under a rain jacket. I've also worn it around the house on cool nights and mornings since I received it. It seems to do the job and offer the right amount of warmth without the bulk. May 20, 2013
very pleasantly surprised I have been looking for a black vest for use on the tennis court. I wanted a snug fit and a length that didn't hike up when I went to serve. When I opened the packaging, the fabric was so light weight, I asked myself how could the vest offer the warmth I was seeking. Wow, is my comment to all my questions. Even though I am a medium, I ordered the small (for a snug fit) and am so happy with the vest. It washes and wears for my constant use both on and off the tennis court. I am now considering other colors. March 31, 2013
