Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice hooded vest This is a very comfortable fleece vest at a good price. It looks good with my other Columbia tee shirts. I like the hood for extra warmth and rain coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is overall perfect I bought this thinking maybe I’ll wear a vest some time and I literally have wore it every chance I get. I love it and the fact that it has a hood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hooded fleece vest I’ve tried this on and it seems like an excellent product. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it), the weather turned exceptionally warm for this time of year and I haven’t worn the vest yet to see how it performs!! Seems like it was a smart decision to buy though just by trying it on and seeing how well it fits!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect hooded fleece I absolutely love this fleece vest. The best part is the hood. I LOVE the style of hood. It is large, does not synch down (no draw strings to make it form fitting), and when on come just right above my eye brows. It is warm and cozy. I have never seen a vest with a hood before and was really excited to find this at such a great price. I wear in in the fall time on warmer days with a long sleeve shirt or in winter under a jacket. The length is perfect. The back is slightly longer, I think they call it dove tail, and it falls (on me) right on my butt. This is great because when I bend over or sit, it does not ride up and expose my back. Not only does it look good, but it is super warm and comfortable. I am 5'3", 128lbs, 34A. I saw that the fit is Modern Classic/Regular and this tends to run a little bit bigger and not so fitted on me. I got this in an XS because I didn't want it to be too big and the XS fits me absolutely perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this vest This is one of my favorite vests to wear during the winter. With the hood it completes my layers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel Great Fit as expected, Warm, comfortable. I am a 5'2 130 female and I bought a medium and I can put on a sweater and still have plenty of room.
Date published: 2017-07-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little big The medium had too much material around the middle so I returned it. Small fit much better. Bluebell and Spray are pretty colors- Spray looked darker on my computer than in person. It's a very light color. I'm 5'6" 125 pounds, not hippy.
Date published: 2017-02-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wear it all the time! Im usually an M/L and decided to get the L so I can wear a light hoodie/long sleeve underneath. The large does just that. I wear this all the time. When it's cold I wear on top of a sweater/hoodie, long sleeve. When it's SUPER cold, I can wear this under a jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great Columbia Vest Can't argue with cozy! Bought an XS in Charcoal Heather. I am 5'4", 116lbs - Fits perfect. Plenty of room for any kind of shirt underneath. Cuter than the pics. A+!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly for me It is warm and fits me very well. I am tall and it is long over my back, as i like; not short as when you sit down you back is nude.
Date published: 2016-08-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This vest fits well. It's flattering and is perfect for mild weather. I would absolutely but this vest again in a different color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love This vest is so warm and comfortable. I have purchased all colors. It is washable and looks new every time its cleaned. I love this vest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect vest I love the hood and zipper pockets. I took a hike yesterday and my phone, keys, gloves, small water, and protein bar fit in the pockets!
Date published: 2016-03-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish it was longer I went up a size to make sure base layers would fit comfortably and also hoping for a little longer length; that didn't happen, but I got a roomier fit and not a honking big armhole either. Couldn't be described as true tunic length, but I do appreciate the hood not often found on vests.
Date published: 2016-03-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and warm! This vest is so comfortable and warm! I found that it fits true to size as well! Happy to see that there is a sale so that I can add more to the Columbia collection :) !
Date published: 2016-02-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great vest for extra warmth I bought this to wear for a little extra warmth on those days where it's too warm for a jacket, but too cool for just a shirt. I was a little disappointed as it is a little larger than I was hoping, but nevertheless, it's comfortable and I love the hood option.
Date published: 2016-02-08
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too large to keep I was so excited when the vest arrived only to be completely disappointed when I tried it on. It was at least 2 sizes too big. I'm 5'7 and 150lbs with an athletic build so I ordered a large to have a little extra room to layer (like I have with other modern classic fit items), but it fit more like an XL. I'm sure a medium would fit wonderfully, but since it cost me over $10 to ship it back I won't be finding that out. I would recommend this product though as long as you order the correct size.
Date published: 2016-02-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the hood but.......... I have several Columbia fleece jackets and love them. I ordered this vest to wear under coats. I love the hood. Unfortunately "Sea Salt" looks white on the website but is cream color. I returned the vest because I was looking for lots of warmth and it was quite thin. I found a Columbia Dotswarm fleece vest instead. Very warm. I had to give up the hood though. I would love to see a very warm vest in white, preferably with a hood.
Date published: 2016-02-06
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Try before you buy Fleece vest with a hoodie ~ great idea! But, the armholes gaped in front while the bust was tight on the Small, and the Medium was overall too large on this middle-age body. Try it on in the store if you can because overall it's a good product.
Date published: 2016-02-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable, but fairly thin/light This vest is adorable with the hood! It fits great (I'm a 36DD and the XL fits *perfectly*), and is very comfortable. The material is light though, so it is not the warmest/heaviest vest. For the price, it's great!
Date published: 2016-02-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from very feminine & fitted ..love zippered pockets,& nice length as well I would wash in cold and air dry.also I went up a size I like my vests on loser end to have the option of wearing sweaters underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Vest Love it I Double it with another fleece an My Columbia coat with no hood in this Chicago Winter LOVE IT an Lil longer then what I thought but overal It was worth the Price
Date published: 2016-01-24
Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little to big. The material is really nice and it felt good. I definitely was glad to have something with a hood. I ordered a large, but should have gotten a medium. I sent it back for a different size. Looking forward to getting it back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, runs large Solid daily use vest. When zipped all the way up, the hood is scarf-like. My only disappointment is that it runs large. I wish there was more of a standard in Columbia's sizing.
Date published: 2016-01-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like it Runs a little large; I am a size 8 and bought a medium size. It's a bit long and not quite snug. I like the zipped pockets and the softness.
Date published: 2016-01-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Color is off I ordered the Ruby Red vest for work. I am required to wear red as part of my uniform. This vest is more of a hot pink. Way too pink. It is no where near what I expected Ruby Red to look like. I can not wear this to work. If I did, I would get sent home or asked to change. I was really looking forward to having a vest for work.
Date published: 2016-01-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for layering! I bought this for the early mornings where I need just a bit of warmth. It is absolutely perfect! The hood is useful. The pockets are deep and zip! I like EVERYTHING about this and looked at many different manufacturers before I purchased this one. IT IS PERFECT!
Date published: 2016-01-13
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not like the jacket with the same name I purchased the Benton Springs Jacket earlier this year and assumed that the vest would follow the same pattern. It is not nearly as long (one of my favorite things about the jacket) and the fabric is not as heavy. Probably would not have purchased it had a known about the difference in length.
Date published: 2016-01-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Benton Springs Hooded Vest (Womens) Nice product, just runs a little small unless you want a snug fit.
Date published: 2016-01-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest Everything I expected it to be. Cozy and warm. Works great under a jacket for a layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The hood makes it! Hooded vest! Enough said! Great quality! Great color choices!
Date published: 2015-12-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wear everyday - love it. I wear this vest as a mid-layer while skiing five days a week. Good quality, nice fit.
Date published: 2015-12-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits a little large I bought this vest as gifts for 5 women in my office - all very different sizes and shapes. Only one of the 5 went for the Large - when usually 2 are large and the rest are medium. Pretty color and nice styling that looks good in correct size.
Date published: 2015-12-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from buy this vest! I bought this vest in grey and then had to buy another one in plum. It fits well (the princess seams accentuate my figure), the fabric is soft and very warm. It's a great layering piece- I wear it over longsleeved shirts, and depending on the weather, over wool sweaters too. I'm very happy with my purchase!
Date published: 2015-12-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice fleece! Nice thick, but not too thick, fleece vest. I'm 5'3 and it hit me about mid hip. I ordered a large but could have gone with medium.
Date published: 2015-11-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from YAY for a hoodie vest! I've been looking for a hooded vest for years, and I'm so happy that Columbia offers one. And an extra bonus: lots of colors to choose from and nice looking.
Date published: 2015-11-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fleece I think this is the first vest I've ever bought. I like that it has a hood on it, too. The color is great (emerald) and I get a lot of compliments on it. It's a nice thick fleece for this Alaska fall weather.
