Rated 5 out of 5 by Utilitarian This is my second vest. I love this product. It is lightweight and durable. I wear it with everything. It is great in fall and spring as the only layer I need to wear to keep warm when outside. In the winter it is excellent layer to keep warm without bulk. I highly recommend this product. I have encouraged my friends to get one and many have. Everyone comments about its utility and warmth. Enjoy November 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best vest ever! I normally shy away from vests mainly because I feel like I look like I'm a walking hand grenade, but this vest is built thin, yet does the job! It's light and the reflective tech does the job without making me overheated. While I'm usually a 1X, I ordered a size up in case I wear something a little bulky, and the sizing was fine. The collar is a nice width for turning up or laying flat. Another thing I've noticed is with other down-type clothes, I build up a static charge that shocks me when I remove it, but this vest doesn't seem to do that. Until it gets colder outside, I'm wearing it mostly indoors as the temps chill down. This vest is an excellent addition to my wardrobe! October 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product for a great price! Great color! Lightweight. I normally wear an xl top so I went up one size to a 1x to be safe since reviews indicated it runs small. It fits perfectly! You won't be disappointed! February 22, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Style and Color could double as a life jacket. The style and color are not great. The red hibiscus color was more of a bright orange. I was disappointed that it didn't have more of a fitted cut - like the website image suggested. It hangs straight down without any curve at the waste. The red hibiscus vest could double as a life jacket. January 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it I love vests and this is no exception. I ordered a size up and that worked well. Keeps me warm! January 27, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent present for Mom! After I bought my Columbia Omni Heat jacket, I knew my Mom would also love this wonderful heat-preserving technology, so I bought her the vest. She is delighted by the Omni Heat technology, which keeps her nice and warm. I also know that Columbia products are always of excellent quality and worth the price, and I love to support Oregon businesses as well. Thank you for your excellent products and great company!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight and Warm The Quill color is a pretty purple. This vest is warm and lightweight. Glad this is available in an extended size. Highly recommend. December 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Purchase This vest is exactly as advertised. Its extremely light weight and packs down to almost nothing yet is still very warm. I highly recommend this item! November 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bought this for snowboarding in the springtime I bought this for snowboarding in the springtime. Haven't tested it out as a snowboard vest but I have been wearing it around the house as the temps start to drop. It's very comfortable I love the hidden chest zip pocket. That will be handy when I wear it snowboarding. The length is good too. It's shorter in the front than in the back which I like. I hate it when jackets/vests don't cover the small of your back when bend over. I got the purple (Quill) color and I like it cause it's a deep purple - not too bright. I did say it was a little on the small side. I think it's cause the material doesn't have any give. If you are between sizes like I am (between 1x & 2x) go for the larger size. October 3, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by my new vest I love it. I only wish that I would have purchased it at the begining of winter. It is sooo light weight but warm. You feel nice and toasty wearing it. March 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product for cold weather I really like this product and it is very durable n warm... I think all women should have a black vest in their closet... March 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sizing not small like thought I ordered a 2x after reading reviews that they run small. That wasn't the case and would of ordered a 1x had I known a little large to be worn with a long sleeved shirt underneath. Good product just ordered wrong size. March 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by very comfy and warm the material is light weight, and very soft, and isn't super puffy so it fits under my coat. It's also nice and warm, and is a lovely color. February 4, 2013
