Rated 5 out of 5 by BlFord from Fleece Vest - An excellent value! The Men’s Cascades Explorer™ Fleece Vest is an excellent vest. I have tried many different brands of fleece vests and find the Columbia version to be the best. It is warm, great for layering. It works great for golf in early spring and later in fall when range of motion is so important. The Columbia vest is reasonably priced and a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WestCoastMomHB from Great fit for my dad I bought this as a gift for my 72 yr. old father. He is 6' and a slender build. It fit him perfectly. Overall construction made it fit very nicely. zipper works well. color is a nice lightish gray (Charcoal heather) that goes with everything. He has never worn a vest before but now he's in love with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kp18 from Runs a little large, but will shrink a little after laundry I wanted a more snug fit so I went a size smaller and it was still a bit loose. However, after running through the washer/dryer, the vest became more form fitting. Overall, great vest!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chuck16 from Great for every day Great product, wear it around the house on chilly mornings, great for adding extra warmth layered under a long sleeve fleece or jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cepjr from Excellent for Layering I purchased this product primarily for golfing where I need body warmth under three to four layers and this works perfectly to protect my core and can be easily managed as the temperature rises. In addition, the material provides the necessary flexibility without restricting my swing. I wear it in the house during colder months when it is chilly in the morning or when I need to go outside for short periods of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 90640 from Recommend Vest is wonderful forr everyday wear, by itself over shirt during mild winter temps and layered under jacket for temperatures below 50. Like the convenient chest pocket for phone/small notepad and pen. Another good feature: Chest pocket and 2 side seam pockets all have zippers. I’m 5’3”, weigh140 lbs and size small fits perfectly, not tight nor loose, good length and light-weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by J713 from When your arms are hot and your chest is cold But seriously, this is a comfortable vest. The fleece is not a thick as the jackets, so wearing it inside isn’t too warm and is just enough for cooler temps outside. The three pockets are big enough to hold all your stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MEA2311 from Great Purchase! Bought this for my husband. Great quality & fits true to size. Has been washed multiple times and still looks brand new. He can wear this for a casual look with jeans and can also dress it up with a button down and khaki pants for work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Docta2002 from Very comfortable. This is a very comfortable vest. It is warm on its own and is a great layering piece of it's too cold outside. The reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating is the front chest pocket. I would exclusively use it to put in my wallet or my phone but with the zipper all the way down, the depth of the pocket isn't much so i have to put the phone horizontally in, I'd like it to be vertically but overall it's a great vest. The collar is also somewhat tall, good to seal up your neck area or you can fold it back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OddThomas40 from Step up from steens This vest is a step up from the steens vest as it adds a draw string at the hem and the fleece feels a better quality. Also seems to be a tad longer. All good things. Now if we could see more color and prints on this style. 5'10 42 chest 35 waist. Medium fit perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BobbaLouie from Nice Fit, Color and Warmth I'm on the upper end of the medium size with a 41 inch chest, but the vest fits just right. The Charcoal Heather color is very versatile. The material is thinner, but makes it easy for layering it over and under other clothing, and provides the right amount of warmth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris1255 from Vest is GREAT! Shipped promptly. Vest was as advertised. Wasn't too small as some reviews reported. Just right. Fits great and is just perfect for early spring or late winter days. I live in Texas where the mornings can be cool but then it quickly warms to the 80s. This is perfect for putting on in the morning and taking it off by lunch. Seem to wash and wear perfectly. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michaelsg from Good Vest I live in Florida at a nature center, so my work takes me inside and out. I found that this vest is excellent for the kind of work I do IN THE WINTER. Florida doesn't get that cold, and the afternoons are usually pretty warm even in January, so this vest is great to wear in the mornings during the fall and spring, and all day in the winter. It keeps me looking professional at work and keeps me warm, but not too warm cause again, this is Florida. I love that it has the extra pockets inside so I can hide "treasures" from my students like cool rocks or bones. having the outer pockets zippered is also very useful.
