Rated 5 out of 5 by love it i got a size up from what i usually get so i can wear the vest over a sweatshirt for my morning walks and its perfect. i think i will get another one. it was a little lighter than i thought it would be but now that ive been wearing it for a couple of days i love it. i love how it has a long neck November 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by EmTheAmi I like this vest to accompany a long sleeved shirt on a chilly day. It adds a little bit more warmth, but not too much. It's not big or a puffy vest and good for lounging or going out to a pub in the evenings. I am 5'3" and weight 125lbs. I ordered the small, but it runs a size bigger - I would have gotten the XS, if I would have known. Otherwise, very happy with it! November 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this vest! Great vest for everyday. Light weight, packs well for trips and always looks good. I would recommend this vest to everyone. I purchased this vest in black two years ago and now I am purchasing another one in a different color. October 24, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by HIDEOUS SO first of all this vest is thin, definitely would not keep you warm. Second, it was way too baggy at the bottom. Third, the vest had a collar that is completely awkward, this picture is very misleading. If you are looking at the picture of the black vest, it makes you think that the columbia logo will be able to be seen. But it can't be seen since the collar is so huge and hideous. At the front the vest cuts in too far and looks weird around the bust. Now I have to pay to ship it back. VERY disappointed in Columbia and will not be ordering anything online again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great vest This vest is very comfortable, just right for cool days. The color was true to the picture. Love it! January 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flattering, comfortable vest Loved this vest! It's flattering with the side panels of a different color. It is versatile, so you can wear many undershirts with it. The pockets are very deep. It keeps you SUPER warm! Definitely a great price for a great product! January 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish and great color I ordered the Deep Blush and I am in love with it! It was a little pinker than I thought it would be, but still a gorgeous color. I am 5 foot 4, 190 lbs and a 36 DD. The chest is just a bit big, but fits well everywhere else. A large would have been better, as the sides are a stretchy fleece fabric. But I love it, and will be keeping it. January 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Vest I live in South Carolina, so for me the vest is perfect for our mild winters. Its not bulky and therefore very fashionable for winter wear. If you live in a colder climate, its probably not for you. I found it to be a little long. I ordered a small (im 5'1, 115 lbs) and it looked like I had four breasts because of the silhouette and where the chest fell on me. I ordered an x-small and im hoping it works because the hibiscus red is beautiful. December 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it I wear a lot of vests and this one is one of the best as it is warm and functional. December 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super cute vest!! Bought this vest to survive mountain winters where I live in Northern Utah. Everybody complained that the vest runs small, but it doesn't. I am 5'0", 119 lbs and the small is loose. I should have gotten my regular size of XS. Regardless, it's beautiful, well made and I plan on buying another one in a different color! November 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Vest This is a fun and functional fashion vest. Fit is good, look is great. I have all colors and love that there are matching tops to wear beneath. October 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Five stars except for the sizing This is a really nice vest! Flattering and well made. When I finally found my size, I ordered 2 of them but the sizing on this does not even come close to what their size chart says! The Chart says that an XL will fit a chest of - 46-49" and hips will fit 44-46". The ACTUAL measurement on mine is, chest (under arm) - 44" and hip is 48". I also ordered a polar fleece one and the same applies so these are both going back. If you can find the right size, then these are super-nice vests! September 19, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Pointless This vest is very thin and not really filled with anything. My wife did not like it and will be exchanging it for something else. It looks ok but is essentially an expensive piece of fabric. You may as well spend a few bucks more and get something worth wearing. September 18, 2014
