Men’s Lake 22™ Down Vest is rated out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SeanMN from Awesome vest! I had been in search of a new down vest for awhile, and was looking at both this vest, and the Columbia Voodoo falls vest. Comparing the two, I figured both would offer comparable warmth, and price wasn't far off. The determining factor for me was style and color, where I felt the Lake 22 looked better and had better color options. This is my first Columbia product with "heat seal" which is suppose to be better at holding the down in the baffles (vs stitches) and I feel like this feature works as advertised - the down really seems snugly packed in the baffles. One effect of this, is it gives the vest a slightly more "puffy" feel and appearance (though not excessive). I layered this vest with a fleece zip up and was comfortable outside all day in 50F temps, yet still comfortable enough to wear inside as well. There's an exterior zippered pocket on each side, which are nicely sized. On the inside, the backs of the front pockets are stitched so that there's a cavity that's open at the top on each side creating additional pockets on the inside. A zippered internal chest pocket would've been nice, but it's not a deal breaker. I would say the vest has an athletic/fitted cut to it, which I liked. Though, depending on your build, it could make it feel on the smaller side. Conversely, it is somewhat long, hanging down past where a fleece zip or sweatshirt would rest; depending on your build, this could make it feel large. It does not feature a bungee at the bottom, instead it seems to be perfectly fitted without it. There's a bit of snugness around the arm hole which I liked, which should help to keep the warm in. I'm 6'0 and 175lbs and got the Medium, and enjoy how it fits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DarrellD from Cool Vest I really like this vest. It is very warm and comfortable. Compared to my other Columbia jackets, it seems to run slightly smaller, but not too much. Overall, great quality for cold conditions. I have been a Columbia customer for many years, and will continue to be because of the quality and affordability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by THEKIDWISCONSIN from Shockingly Warm I really don't mind winter and don't normally get too cold personally but when it does get cold I hate bulky jackets...especially when driving. This vest is shockingly warm for as thin as it feels. Not bulky at all. Even down to single digits...walking from vehicle to office with a long sleeve shirt is no problem for me with this vest. Zippered pockets are great for keys. Even two inner pockets (open on top but deep enough). Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TayG from For my boyfriend I bought my boyfriend and myself new vests. He really likes this one, though it runs a bit large (length wise). If you’re going to purchase this I would definitely size down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frostbite from Great Vest For The Price I was surprised by the warmth of this vest. The sealed seams keep the down from shifting and flatting. The vest is made so that it allows total movement. Light rain beaded up. A great vest for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jph4 from Lightweight Warmth This is a great, lightweight vest for layering. I'm 6' 3" 180 lbs and got the medium, as I wanted something I could fit under a jacket or over a shirt without too much bulk. It's a nice slim fit and it's just the right length, maybe even a little long, but I don't get that cold draft up my back when I bend over.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Fton from Good vest but now as expected The description says that it folds into one of its pockets I see no way or possibility that it will do that and that property is why I chose it. It is a good vest with two zip pockets on the outside and two glove pockets on the inside. It is light duty and suitable for layering. The cleaning instructions say to not dry clean which is odd since I have always had my down garments dry cleaned with excellent results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gus21 from Nice This vet looks nice. I purchased for my son-he's only 14 and a small 14. This is too big for him but I am keeping it because he will grow. Not sure how warm it really is since he hasn't worn it yet but imagine with a sweatshirt or sweater under it he'll be fine in average temp. winter days.
