Reviews

Women’s Mix It Around™ Vest is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 83.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would Buy It Again At Sale Price Although I can't wrap my head around this ever being a 60 dollar item, it is high quality. I've been wearing it a lot - LOVE IT !! It does provide a nice layer of warmth, and it looks stylish. I was concerned with the sizing, as always, but got the large - my regular size. I've never once yet been disappointed with ill-fitting clothing from Columbia.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awful collar The collar was too wide and reminded me of Elvis. The bluebell color is my favorite, but I couldn't get past the collar and the V stitching looked a little busy on me. I'm 5'6" 125 pounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't stop wearing it This is the most practical layer I've bought in a long time. It's got a nice cut, is long enough, has deep pockets, and really warms me up if I zip the neck. I use it instead of a purse when traveling--holds my phone, wallet, spectacles, handkerchief, each in its own pocket. It's not ultralight or superwarm so I consider it a city vest, and switch for a down vest when going in the cold. I only wish that it came in more colors. I hope colombia brings this item back next fall, I'll wear it with skirts, pants, over yoga duds, you name it. My only request would be to add a small zippered pocket for thinks like jewelry or credit cards that can get lost out of open pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from warmth I love the way it looks with the smaller waist and all. The only thing is it would be perfect if it has a thin fleece lining instead of just lining, it will go that extra mile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, lightweight vest This vest fits true to size and is very nice. It is perfect for adding a light layer to a light, long sleeved top. The blue color is very pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I wore this out in the desert for King of the hammers while running recovery and it kept my chest area nice and warm against the wind and cold at 6am in the morning. It fits surprisingly well even though I'm 6'1. It's easy to clean and lays flat when I wear a shirt underneath. Definitely recommend for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Vest Ever Love this vest. I have it in every color. It is a great layering piece. Just enough to fight the chill and very fashionably chic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent I have not used this vest for weather purposes, and I was seeking a vest more for look/style. I like the look and feel of the vest! It's not too puffy and it's comfortable. I didn't notice in the pictures, but the side of the vest is fleece. Not what I was expecting, but I like it nonetheless. The collar is a tad large, as it can be zipped up to shield your face. I do wish the Columbia label was placed somewhere visable, and not behind the neck. My biggest complaint is that it flares out at the hips, so it doesn't lay flat. Overall, I'm satisfied with my purchase for the price that I paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect out-the-door vest I purchased this in Bluebell/Medium based on previous reviews. I am 140#, 36C, and typically wear 8/30 pants. I wear a small in the fast beauty vest (sherpa) which has some stretch while this vest does not so I recommend ordering a size up. I love the soft slate color. I throw this on while running errands and wear around the house if it gets too cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight vest This vest is thin . Not for very cold days . The thickness would be similar to that of a liner. It fits nicely under a coat, not too bulky . It fits just below the waist. A little longer would be nice , as I have a longer torso. I like it because I can wear it under a jacket but be able to have a little warmth once I get inside. And it's perfect for those cool days , when a jacket is too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest I am loving this vest. It is actually long enough for me. I ordered size S, and I am 5'9" and 125 pounds. It's not quite as fitted as I had hoped, running a bit loose/big around the midsection.
Date published: 2017-02-06
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rather Disappointing I ordered this vest from on-line and I ended up returning it. I did not notice when ordering that the vest had fleece side panels. The fleece was rather thin and made the vest feel cheap and not as warm as expected. The bluebell was a very pretty color but it could not make up for vest's overall lack of warm/substance. Size-wise, I went up a size as it would have been worn over sweaters and it did fit well. But again, just not what I expected...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight vest I ordered this to replace a fleece vest which was too warm most of the time and also collected cat hair. This vest has great style, deep pockets (also has "pockets" on the inside which can be used for a phone, passport, etc.) and the fabric exterior doesn't attract cat hair. More of a fashion accessory than outdoor gear, but then that was just what I was looking for. It fits loose in the bust (I am small), snug in the waist and flares at the hips (a bit too much for me because I don't have big hips but was not a deal breaker since it makes me look more curvy than I am!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very light weight but stylish and form fitting I ordered the size medium and it fits perfectly! I'm 175lbs, 5'9", small chest. Be warned, the sides are made of Fleece so not everything is made out of the puffy material. It is a very thin material that I wouldn't wear for warmth at all. It's definitely only for looks. And this might not be a problem for everyone but I love zipping my jackets up all the way and the neckline for this vest was waaay too high. It did not look right at all so you would have to have the collar down all the time. Overall for $30 I don't think it was a bad purchase but I will be returning it because I need something warmer and thicker, plus a collar that can stand upright.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great really happy with the fit I'm 5 2" with a larger chest Usually I would have to go up a size to accommodate

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So versatile! I got this vest because I already had one in another color and I wanted one I could wear with more things. Our winters aren't too harsh, so the vests are something I can wear almost every day and be comfortable. I plan to buy at least one more just for a little more variety, but I love them!
Date published: 2017-01-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice design This vest is very light weight, but my wife tells me that it is very comfortable. She does not like to wear bulky coats/clothing, so this works well for her. She can put a long-sleeved shirt under it and stay warm in the winter months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from light layer I like this vest a lot-very stylish with the collar. It is a light layer though, so I wear it more for looks than extra warmth. Nice big pockets and very comfy.
Date published: 2017-01-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Vest! I love this vest! Its lightweight but still really warm over a long sleeve top. I've worn it so much! I got it in plum, and would definitely get other colours. The pockets are deep which is great for my phone, iPod, and hands when I exercise. I'm 5'11" and the M fits great lengthways, and big enough to wear layers underneath

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Lightweight This vest is much more lightweight than expected, it seems to be more fashionable than functional for warmth. I returned it, the quality is great, just not what I was looking for.
Date published: 2016-12-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect vest I like that the vest is warm but not bulky like a puffer vest. I am 5'2 and 135lbs. I bought the black in a medium and It fits perfectly. It has multiple pockets and they are deep. I love it and highly recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fits well I bought this as part of a present, I was OK with the front and back...not so happy about the sides of the vest, they were like a fleece like material...not sure how it will hold after a couple of cycles in the washing machine...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gift! I have grown daughters and sometimes find it difficult to get creative, fun gifts that they will enjoy. This vest is perfect! Great look, just the right amount of warmth, nice colors for any mood, add a cool scarf for extra fun!! The side fabric ensures a good fit. The girls love the vests!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice weight for running. I got this vest for running in cool weather when I just needed a little extra warmth. It is exactly what I wanted. It fits well (I'm 5'3" and 130#), and I got a medium. The pockets are deep enough for my IPhone without concern that it will bounce out, because there are no zippers on the pockets.
Date published: 2016-11-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vest The large "collar" is fleece lined and super warm. I like that the vest is warm but not bulky like a puffer vest. I am 5'4" and 116 lbs. The XS fits perfectly. Bought the blue and love the color. Will likely buy in additional colors. A+!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very functional vest This is the vest I have been looking for. Does an excellent job adding that extra layer without bulk. Highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good vest, but runs small. I have a 44D bust and ordered size XL. The vest's material/weight is just what I wanted, a little extra warmth for spring/summer hiking when I wouldn't want to wear a whole jacket. Unfortunately, the sizing runs small. I tried it on over a thin t-shirt and was able to zip the vest closed, but it really squeezed my chest. I couldn't even sit down in it. I would recommend the product, but if you are a busty lady, then order one size up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected Very thin material, very small sizing. Color was good, but product not at all quality I expected. Will b returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile This is my favorite go to vest. It's light weight and fits under a jacket for extra warmth or does a great job of keeping my chest and neck warm without having to where a jacket on hikes. This vest fits to your curves ...It's definitely not a "guy" vest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Spring Vest Material was a bit thinner than I expected, but would work well in spring and fall. I got my mom the large and while it was loose throughout, the arm holes were a little on the smaller side. Otherwise, great length, and she enjoys it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MyVest I really love the color, a bluish green. It is such a cheerful color and so refreshing for the dark winter days. It fits very well and is comfortable. I love to wear vests in the winter all the time and I hope this one will last for many years..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this vest! Was so happy to get this vest. It is perfect for our Louisiana weather. The fit is very nice. Helps my figure!
Date published: 2016-03-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super buy I had my eye on this vest but hesitant to pull the trigger at $60.00 so when it was reduced to a $19 I snapped up the white w/gray. So happy with my purchase. Note: The vest is very thin so a down vest would be better than this one in colder climates. I live in Florida so this vest is perfect for a winter day 45-65 degrees. It does keep my core warm during an walk, jog, cycle etc. and it is as light as a feather so very comfortable. I also wear it for errands and such. I am 5'4" 140 lbs and the MED fits perfectly but size up if you plan on wearing a thick fleece underneath. For $19 it's a steal. Thanks, Columbia!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from To big, to thin !!! I was looking forward to this vest arriving and when it did I was very disappointed, it was to big, way thinner than it looks . I have purchased two jackets that I love, I was hoping the same for the vest, mailed back for a refund.
