Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality, runs large I really like the vest, but wish I had gone one size smaller. I usually buy M, ordered a S, but should have gone XS. Otherwise it's really soft and warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOMEN’S BENTON SPRINGS™ HOODED FLEECE VEST I ordered this vest in black in a size small. This fleece vest is very warm, keeping your core warm. It functions as a vest should! The hood is an added bonus! I love having the hood on the vest. I tent to wear this Columbia vest under a coat when I'm out and about. Some of my coats do not have hoods, so I especially love the hood. The material is very soft and comfy. All if the zippers glide smoothly. Having zippered pockets is nice to secure your items. The inside or the pocket is sewn so that the bottom is attached to the body of the vest, which allow for a sort of (top) open ended pocket where you can store more of your items on you. I would definitely recommend this Columbia hooded fleece vest!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute! I love this fleece vest and the hood is a bonus! I originally ordered a small and it was too big. I’m 5’5 130 lbs and I sent it back for an extra small and it fits great. I never wear an extra small in any brand except Columbia, their clothes seem to be bigger than others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest with hood! This is a great, typical fleece vest with the added bonus of a hood! Good quality and craftsmanship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE the hooded vest! I got it in the white (sea salt) and I love it. It looks really cute and feminine in that color, and with the added hood. I got a medium and to me it’s definitely true to size. I wish all my Columbia vests had hoods, now! ;)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Vest! Love the hood feature on this vest. Quality is great, not too heavy. Only complaint is it runs a bit large, but not worth sending back for a smaller one.
Date published: 2018-02-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the vest Excellent quality, nice fleece, a good medium weight. I like the hood, it is very difficult to find a hooded fleece vest. I am 5’8”, 140lbs, and the Medium fits fine with a light sweater or cotton turtleneck. If I wanted to wear it with a heavier layer underneath I might have needed the Large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this vest! I bought this vest on clearance a few weeks ago and once I received it I have barely taken it off! Love the fit/length/price/color (I bought a black one). Wish I could buy another one but all sold out in my size. Great quality fleece and since it's from Columbia I'm sure I'll be wearing it for years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's Benton Springs Vest This is the perfect layering vest. It is thin but very warm and extremely soft. The hood is loose and the zipper zips up high.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this fleece vest! I've purchased 2 of these vests - I ordered the first one in black size small - I liked it so much that I ordered another in the sea salt color - They fit perfectly and fleece is very soft - the hood is great as it not only covers my head, but enables me to zip it up over my chin and mouth. It's also cool that the back has a slight tail. Very soft and washes well, too. I totally recommend this vest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality Nice material, a little bigger than I thought, but it does fit. Love that there is a hood on this vest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love that it has a hood Wonderful fleece vest and that it has a hood makes it a GREAT fleece vest. I originally bought it for a friend. Like it so much I bought one for myself. Perfect for those changeable weather days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Benton Springs Hooded Fleece Vest I purchased a size small, black colored fleece vest for my daughter. It runs a little large from her regular size. The hood is an added touch to protect her head from wind and the back of her neck from cold. The fabric has a decent quality ... not thin, not thick ... just fine.
Date published: 2018-02-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality Love the quality. I'm normally an extra large but that was too big so I exchanged it for the large. It's a little more fitted than I like but the quality is wonderful. I can just only wear a thin shirt underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really soft and worth the money I love this vest. It’s a tad big but with a sweater underneath should be a comfortable fit
Date published: 2018-02-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest Fits great under another coat. Not to bulking. Hood isn’t adjustable but it stays up very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hoodie with style This is the 1st hoodie fleece vest that I have purchased from Columbia. I love it. The quality is what I have come to expect from Columbia. Also, thank you for the zippered pockets. When I am walking, it is nice to know I can bring my keys or phone & put them in the pockets, knowing that they won't fall out. I will be watching for this style in other color choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the hood! I have 4 Benton Springs vests which I love. When I found out there was one with a hood I was so excited! I own 2, charcoal and stone blue. I couldn't love them more! I wear them all the time and the hood is the perfect addition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice cozy layering piece, love the hood I bought this for my upcoming trip to Iceland (because I haven't lived in a cold climate for four years and gained weight so my old fleece vest doesn't fit). I love the hood and the white color, which matches the Mighty Lite™ Hooded Plush Jacket I also got from Columbia (which I love). I love the zippered pockets. This is a perfect layering piece, and stylish.
Date published: 2018-01-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Extra Layer I love the oversized hood, soft fleece, longer length and zip up pockets. This is a comfortable, stylish and warm vest. It is great for layering, but also for wearing on its own. I was reasonably comfortable for short(10-30 minutes) excursions outside with just this and a long sleeve t-shirt on a 30 degree day. I am 5'5'' around 155 pounds and a 38C and the medium fit well. For someone larger chested or wanting more layers, underneath, I would recommend sizing up to a large.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hood fleece vest Vest is thick enough to be warm, black color is faded black, runs just a little big and goes a little below waist. I purchased an XS weight about 103lbs. 5.2 I do recommend especially at sale price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Points Bought this and a long sleeve jacket for my wife and both received the maximum number of good husband points available. She loved this sleeveless jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable I love this vest! bought 2 because I haven't been able to find a fleece vest that wasn't too tight or sit too high up in the middle. This one sits about right at the hip. Plus you can wear a thicker turtle neck sweater underneath without it being too tight. Love the hood feature too for days I don't want to wear a beanie hat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cte I bought the seesaw color in medium and it looks true to size. The sea salt color is a true white, and for some reason I thought that it would have a slightly gray-ish or cream tone

Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfy fits cute but runs a little big but without knowing if a smaller size would fit better. Figure I would be wearing a heavier top underneath so I kept it

Date published: 2017-12-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hooded vest! This is such a great and comfy hooded vest! It does run just a bit large, but that makes it that much better to layer underneath. It is also longer than the other Columbia Vests that I own so its great to wear with leggings or yoga pants to cover your tush!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and beautiful. Love it! This is exactly what I was looking for. A nice fleece vest WITH a hood. After reading other reviews about sizing, I ordered my usual size (SM) and the fit is right on for me. (5'3", 110 lbs). I selected the color "nocturnal" and it is a beautiful heather blue. I like it so much, may even order another color.

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.
