Men's Mountainside™ Full Zip Vest is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad I am quite pleased with this vest. It looks nice enough to wear with a fancy button down, but is still warm enough to wear in snowy conditions. I went to Greenland and wore this almost the entire time I was there and get great the entire time I was there. 9/10 would recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right I've been searching high and low for the right vest for the right price and this was it! I had tried other brands with higher and lower price tags, but this fit the bill perfectly. I'm 6'1" 175 with a trim build and average length torso. This vest has just the right amount of length for good coverage and tapers perfectly along my torso. It's hard to find a good mix between "fitted" and "boxy", but Columbia achieved it for me. Wearing this with a flannel worked perfect in mid to low 40's outside and has enough room underneath for some more layering without being excessively large in the arm openings when it's shirt weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around vest I am used to fleece vests but this is so much better. It is wind resistant and does not catch all the hair from my dogs. I wear it almost every day when the weather is roughly between 45 and 60

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Vest This vest is sharp looking. Great fit and super cool color. It might not be perfect for colder weather, but it’s been great for days 45 degrees and warmer. All in all super nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Layering I use this as an everyday winter product. It’s a great vest for layering. Great quality and warm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Value Really warm for low bulk vest. Materials & workmanship seems top notch. My only disappointment is that the outside breast pocket is too small for my cell phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vest Case Scenerio Great fit. Great look. Perfect for keeping the core warm on those cool nights.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Happy with my purchase great vest just didn't fit. I'm 5' 9" 215 lb and normally wear a large in a Columbia shirt. The large was snug and the XL was to big around the neck.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from More sporty vs. utility & runs long I'm 5'7" tall and if your about this height or a little taller, this vest will be very long on you - it's cut unusually long and it runs a bit small. It doesn't have a 2-way zip, so if you are close to my height, you need to hike it up at the bottom when sitting down. To reiterate, the fit is weird if you're under 5'11" and there are better vests out there. I don't recommend it, even at its low sale price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great. Not good. Just meh. First, this product runs small. Sure, I could afford to hit the gym a couple more times a week—or even just once a week for that matter—but this vest is not forgiving, or even sympathetic to my mid-section. Just some simple elasticity around the bottom of this thing would be the perfect prescription for my Netflix binge-watching waistline. I would then at least be able to sit on the couch and breathe simultaneously. Second, the stitching on this vest is weak-sauce. Now before you blame my blossoming figure, I had noticed before I even put the thing on that there are multiple places around this vest where the stitching was straggling. There were threads just hanging around the joint with no discernible conviction to hold the garment together. I foresee this becoming a bigger issue as time wears on. Lastly—and this is probably more on me—I didn't sign up to be member of this establishment, therefore paying for shipping. By the time I figure it out and zipped up the vest, I wasn't about to pay more to ship the thing back. And it's not like I would be able to anyways since I couldn't get the thing off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite Vest What a great quality product. I bought it during a sale just to see and was pleasantly surprised. It is warm and looks sharp. It is built to a quality standard too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great vest at a great price. I really like this vest, but the challenge for me was the sizing - it just didn't fit quite right for me. The L was a little too small, and the XL was a little too big.
Date published: 2018-01-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for. This is a great, lightweight vest, that I find works well for both business casual and casual dress situations. I'm am 6'6" and 290 lbs, and the XXL fit me perfectly. Not too tight and not so baggy that it looks sloppy, as well as being warm without being "puffy" as many of these types of vests are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome Warm, yet light. Keeps the cold wind off your chest. I really like this vest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Vest I am someone who likes vests so that more core stays cold, but my arms don't get too hot. This vest is amazingly comfortable and stylish. It keeps your core warm. Another well-made product by Columbia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Columbia vest I love the best, it's a bit snug, however I've put on a few pounds over the holidays. The vest is very nice, colors look great with khakis or jeans!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very functional I wished that this vest was more insulated. It’s best for cool days but probably won’t work for a cold day. Overall quality was great and looks too
Date published: 2018-01-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, better for a tall person My new favorite vest, being in Colorado where weather changes all the time, it’s a great temperature moderator and love the longer/tall fit of it. Perfect for my lifestyle.
Date published: 2018-01-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like this! Always been a Columbia fan and own several things Columbia. So I had no doubt I’d be happy with this vest. This is very nice. Not too thick and not too thin. Great fit! FYI I’m 5’11” and 250lbs. I ordered the XXL but sent it back for the XL. The XL is perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Size The Men's Mountainside Vest does not fit like the Men's Saddle Chutes™ Jacket. The vest is considerably smaller.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice vest Good quality best that meets my expectations. I liked the two tone color combination and provides a nice extra layer of warmth and style. Like it!
Date published: 2018-01-12
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good, runs small Great looking vest. I wear XXL shirts and I was almost not able to zipper this vest. Since I like to wear all my vests open I decided to keep it. Not sure yet of how warm this vest will be since it is on the thin side but Columbia's technology is usually great.
Date published: 2018-01-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect vest for any weather I love this vest! It is warm when zipped up and keeps me toasty, but is also breathable when it gets warmer outside. It is not fat and poofy like other vests I have which make it easy to move around. Plus it's very light and I don't feel it on while wearing it. Really good buy!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vedt Had one vest from Columbia. When I saw the price of this on couldn’t pass it up vest fits and looks great love it. Will look into more in the future
