Rated 4 out of 5 by Like not love In wanting to update my vests, I've searched to find the same trim princess cut I had in my old Columbia vests. I'm 36C and it seems by the time I fit my bust, many vests are too baggy in the midsection so I order this vest with princess seams. I found size SM to run a bit large overall, with the arm holes especially large. I kept this in charcoal, since I think the XS would be too snug for layering, but returned the haute pink since the bright color made the large fit more obvious. April 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I was looking for Perfect fit, high quality and good price. What more could you ask for? March 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by no chin guard on zipper This vest is great except it doesn't have a chin guard on the top of zipper which is slightly uncomfortable when zipped up for skiing or hiking in cooler temperatures. Add the chin guard and it would be perfect. March 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by What I was Looking For I had a Columbia Vest from several years ago. I wanted to replace it and it was what I was looking for. The style has changed just a little, and I think the seaming detail on the sides are a bit more flattering. Great vest for layering. February 25, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by love this vest It fits true to size and is perfect for what I need. February 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect The shipping was fast and it fits perfectly!! February 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vest This vest is very nice and comfortable and is great for those days where a jacket is just a little much for the weather. February 10, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Seams are off Or maybe it's me. I have two other Benton Springs vests in the same size that fit me well. This one felt a little tight under the arms and the princess seams did not hit me in the right spot. February 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish Love the vest... it looks and feels great.. but runs small. I now have 4 so must say I love the item! February 4, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very thin and poor quality Received the vest and it is completely see through because it is so thin. Does not help with warmth at all and is not good quality. Would not recommend February 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT!! I've wanted this for a long time and I'm so glad I bought it! You can wear it with anything and it's so comfortable and just amazing! January 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is perfect for so many outfits. I LOVE this vest!! All of my friends have it, and I finally decided to buy it myself. It's perfect for so many outfits. You can wear it with long sleeve t-shirts. You can wear it with cute long sleeve shirts. There really is no way that you cannot rock your outfit when you have it on. I'm not just saying that to sway anyone. It's perfect. Plus, it adds a little warmth. (PS: I'm 5'4 and 118 lbs & I ordered a medium, and it fits perfectly with room for layering too.) January 23, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Yes! Not very thick, more for fashion instead of warmth. I wear it a lot though. January 14, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wonderful for the price So soft and comfortable. Wish I had bought a large though so I can wear something a little bulky underneath. January 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous This is the second Columbia vest I bought this year. I absolutely love it. It's super soft,warm and very comfortable. It's true to size so it looks great on. It can be worn both as a casual look or date night. I will definitely come back for more the colors are beautiful. I'll recommend to all my friends. December 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the Color! I wear this jacket with a long sleeve t-shirt and it fits perfect. I love the color! I wanted a winter white and it fits the bill! December 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfy clothing! I bought these items as gifts for Christmas! They loved them!! Great price and quality! December 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The perfect vest! This is the perfect all-around vest. I got it in almost every color! Light weight and warm! Great material. December 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vest I love the quality, sizing and color! Everything was represented accurately. December 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Vest Comfortable vest that you can dress up or dress down. December 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So luxurious! LOVE this vest. The material has a very luxurious look and feel. It can actually work for a dressy-casual occasion, but is great to just throw on for hanging out and running errands. Has a slimming look on as well. December 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Black Fleece Vest I bought this as a Christmas gift. It shipped and arrived quickly. The fabric is very good quality and seems that it will last. The vest runs a little large, but not enough to change your normal size (which is how everything I've ever gotten from Columbia is). Ended up ordering Columbia for everyone this Christmas. December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this Vest I love this vest. I have it in multiple colors and it is the best all around vest! December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best for the price Price was great, quality was great. December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just Right! Perfect for cool days or driving/riding in the car. Light weight - colors are true to those on the website. I have light blue and white vests December 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Benton Springs Vest Great vest, bright colors,good fit December 8, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by not for me I was looking for the vest to be a little thicker. It was too lightweight to wear alone. Would be good it you use it as a layer under a jacket. December 7, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Runs large I looked at the fit guide before purchasing this product and a size small seemed perfect for me. When I sit down with the best zipped, it bunches up. I could fit probably four layers between me and the vest. So if you think a size is perfect, go down one. Otherwise, this vest is very warm and a great purchase. December 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Benton Vest Awesome vest for the colder months. December 2, 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
