Rated 5 out of 5 by Bevy20 from Perfect for travel This vest fit me just right. I was looking for something with lots of pockets that I could use while traveling. I needed places for my passport, wallet, money, boarding passes, and sunglasses. This vest fit the bill perfectly. I love the zippered pockets and the 'hidden' pockets behind them. The vest is light and not bulky at all. Just what I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jnp16texas from Little better than expected I always loved vests and different styles of them so when I saw this one I had to get it! This one gives me more of an adventurer-look compared to other vests I've seen and it was exactly what I wanted out of it. Not to mention, the many pockets on this vest give it a nice touch. This vest is light and comfortable and perfect for the weather here in Texas where I am. I highly recommend this vest to anyone who wants one that is light weight, can carry many things, and wants to have that adventurer look to them. This vest has it all!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ChasD from Utility and Asthetic On my second Sliver Ridge vest, very satisfied with this product. The pockets are not voluminous though serve nicely. Zippered and enough room for glasses (no case) and a wallet on the opposite side. Lower pockets for hands and small zippered pockets on outside. On the inside there's meshed pockets, slightly narrow but lengthy enough for maps and tablets. Very cool in the Sun and a decent windbreaker, potential use for layering too. Getting on in the years, the need to carry accessories is part of the territory so these vests fill that need. The first one in Fossil color goes well with khaki & brown pants. Later, I decided on a second vest in Grill color for blue and grey attire. Use these constantly in journey's around the States and overseas (room for passport). The vest also packs tight in carry-on luggage or in a glove box of a car. Great addition for wardrobe and frees clutter in pant pockets, wear them constantly, though I did hesitate wearing it at a Black-tie event. Still lookin' good... Thanks, Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Heidi27 from If you want a lightweight vest, this is the one! My husband needs a vest to "carry" his phone, paperwork etc on his job. He usually wears a down one, but summer arrived in a big way, so he needed something lighter! I found this one, was very very happy with it, he wears it almost every day. It is just a smidgin' tight when zipped, as it is slightly taiored. He would wear it unzipped anyway. He's a little chunky, so XL vary, and we expected it might be. YET STILL, you get an A+ for this. great quality and value. A little spendy, but worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gene20 from This product is great & I would order it again. I found this product originally at the Scheel's store in St. Cloud, MN but they did not have my size. I loved the fabric, style, and fit. So, when I got home I ordered the vest directly from Columbia. Love, love, love it. Fits perfectly, feels great, and I have worn it many times since I received it. Keep up the good work!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by SummerW from Runs way too small I got this vest for my husband. It's exactly what he's been looking for as far as light weight and quality. However it runs very small, he wears 2X in everything else with plenty of room. Very disappointed in sizing, will be returning, which is too bad because other than that it's a nice vest

Rated 5 out of 5 by gxgxx from practical and stylish I bought a mans vest. I liked it so much I bought another color. My sister saw it and wanted one too, so I purchased her a vest for our trip. Columbia provides quality cloths at an amazing value. I shop at REI and always end up purchasing Columbia cloths. When traveling I bring my Columbia cloths, they are practical and stylish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrDavid from Great Piece of Summer Gear I expect this will be a got-to piece of summer gear and can't wait to get it out in the field. Great semi-athletic fit, light weight but durable, super functional with lots of pockets, nice colour. Only thing I'd tweak is the hand pockets: since they're not really able to warm they should be closable, in which a little velcro tab should do quite nicely. PS: Pretty styling all-round, even looks good in urban settings. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by DJ001 from Exactly what I was looking for So far this vest seems to be exactly what I've been looking for. The fit is perfect and the vest seems well made. I haven't had a chance to try it out in warm weather or travel situations (the real reason for buying this) but I am hopeful that it will function as planned. I ordered the vest online. I wish more retailers carried your line of clothing. But I had an impossible time locating this vest in a store. And the stores that do sell Columbia products only carry a fraction of what you sell. Very disappointing. Love the vest. Once the warm weather returns, I will no doubt order 1 or 2 more if the vest performs as expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Arcturus6 from Excellent Vest I found this vest at a consignment store, and found it to be excellent. It is light, but warm; I can wear it with just a long-sleeved shirt in 40 degree Colorado weather and be just fine. I haven't tested it in warmer temperatures yet, but it is very breatheable (while still keeping you warm in cooler temps!), so I imagine that I'll be able to wear it with a sleeveless shirt when in warmer climates. It is made of a strong Ripstop nylon, and has so many pockets, it's crazy. I probably will order one in a different colour later on. Overall, it's a must-have.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PaulN from Tight on the bottom, loose on top The quality of this product is good and the design has many good features with zippered pockets throughout. Unfortunately for my body type, the bottom was a little tight and the top bloused out at the shoulders. I couldn't use it so it was returned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SeasonedTraveler from Good vest Good vest, I like the longer length . A couple of design improvements I would suggest,1. inside zippered pocket 2. A double zipper on the front of the vest would make the fit better and things would not fall out of the side pockets when you sit down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MOJAVEGREEN from Dangerous inside pocket. Columbia, Under Armor and The North Face are my go to clothing. I buy a lot of Columbia clothing because its well made and I like the softer outdoorsy colors. I do a lot of camping in very remote and sometimes dangerous areas. I wanted a hiking/camping vest to hold my ACR "PLB", GPS, and maps. Santa came through, under the tree was the Columbia Silver Ridge XXL Vest in a soft green color, I think they call the color Gravel. I was very happy, it looked good and seemed very well made. Best of all it didn't look like a fishing vest and was very light weight, The XXL fit perfect I'm 6'3" 250. New Years eve I packed up the Jeep, my trusty Germen Sheppard and headed to the Geologist cabin in Death Valley. The Geologist cabin is first come and its yours. I arrived to the Cabin in about 3 hours from Las Vegas, 17 miles of very rough dirt road from the paved turnoff. Plenty of daylight left so I loaded up my new vest and hiked to Striped Butte. It was about a 6 mile hike there and back. NOW THE BAD PART! The vest has 1 long inside pocket along with other inside pockets, ( by the way the ACR PLB fits perfect in the zippered top outside pocket) I put my Jeep keys in the long inside pocket and went hiking. When I got back to the cabin I downloaded the vest and there was NO JEEP KEYS! UHOH!!! BIG PROBLEM! Even though it was cool in the day and I had a PLB I was not looking forward to a 17 mile hike out with my dog, to the paved road. The SILVER RIDGE vest has a hole for no apparent purpose. It was designed and sewn into that long inside pocket, the hole is on the side edge of the pocket and it hidden by the zipper flap. The hole/slit it 3 INCHES LONG! Why would they make it like that? Anyway next day set out to find my keys that also had a small $200.00 Al-Mar knife on the ring....GONE!! Could not find them. The good news, crawled under my Jeep peeled away some magic black duct tape and got my hideout key (never go off road with out one} I don't understand why Columbia would make a pocket with a hole in the side, and if there is some reason at least point it out. The way its designed you can not see the hole. So When I got back I went to Santa's workshop (REI) to look at the other vest, They all had the hole, no one at REI knew why there was a hole in the pocket and all thought it was crazy that it was made that way. To sum up I still like clothing from Columbia, I have never had a problem with it until this vest, (that I kept) I still like it but will sew up that pocket. Jeep key $80.00, Al-Mar knife $200.00, hidden Jeep key priceless!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Streusel from Very utilitarian yet stylish This is a great looking vest that is also fully functional. Many pockets to handle whatever life brings at you. Only request I have is for a dedicated exterior pen sleeve/pocket for easy access. Otherwise, it's well thought out and designed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ZiggyJoe from A couple of suggestions for functional improvement The vest is long and would benefit from a 2 way zipper up and down. The inside pockets are great for a photographic lens or water bottle. A button or fastener 1/2 way across the top of the inside pocket would help distribute the weight in the pocket better and secure the item from falling out, when it it taken off and folded . Otherwise it is well designed and quite functional. the weight is perfect. More when I get back from a 10 day trip to Ethiopia

Rated 5 out of 5 by IBMOM123 from Versatility in the Men's Silver Ridge Vest I bought the vest for my son. He said:The vest fits true to size, but with enough space to wear a sweater underneath when your out skiing. It has enough pockets to carry cellphones, keys,etc. It is light weight and perfect to take on the slopes in MILD winter conditions, yet it is also perfect for evenings around a college town while your riding your bike.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Curt54 from Unknown value I would love to give a review if I only had the vest to give my opinion. I was supposed to have the vest on the 19th and as of yet I have not seen it. It is a gift for my son who is in Michigan for Xmas but will be heading back to Fort Worth, TX Saturday 12/28. It looks like that when and if I receive the vest I will have to pay the additional cost of shipping the vest from Michigan to Texas. My opinion thus far overall, Not Too Good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tjfunk from Great fit, look, and function I bought the Silver Ridge vest for a camping trip to Yellowstone in the fall and I wouldn't have survived without it. Kept me warm when I needed it to and nullified the wind. Plenty of pockets came in handy. The turtleneck keeps you very warm and combined with a thick flannel, the combo is unstoppable in all but heavy winter weather. Works well as a lining for a heavier winter coat as well. Fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sharon22 from Silver Ridge Vest My husband loves this vest with all the pockets, places for glasses, phone, wallet, keys. Very cool, yet warm, good looking. The XL is not extremely large - just right. A little long and snug... so if you are deciding an XL might be too big (sometimes they are)... this one is an exact, if not just barely, an XL. The L I bought for my brother was too tight around the stomach... he's a little hefty there, so I exchanged for the XL He thought I had bought him the XL long. If this vest is going to be so popular, you might want to make one shorter/fatter and one for the thinner/taller guys. Maybe you already have. Need a ladies' version and I'm petite and don't want it too long! How about gray?
