Women’s Benton Springs™ Vest — Extended Size is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 129.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Vest I love this vest. It’s warm and can be worn all day. I read all the reviews and most said it ran small so I ordered up, and I shouldn’t have done that. I should have stayed with my true size. Also the arm holes are a little too high and tend to rub under the arm pit which can get a little uncomfortable. I do love the vest, and will buy another one in a different color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a sweater but better I got this vest for outdoor layering, but I have decided to use it in my too-drafty old kitchen. The vest is so light to wear while providing core warmth, it is the perfect layer for kitchen working, other home activities, or relaxation. Of course, I've ordered another one for outdoors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I had one vest and I wore it all the time. I recently bought three more! The reduced price was a great value. I love them in fall With a long sleeve shirt and in winter under a coat. Their colors are so varied. I know I will get a lot of good wear out of them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too short for larger "ladies" I love Columbia wear and it's always my go to for jackets and vests. However, this vest in the women's version does not fit my body type well. I am apple shaped with 44DDD "ladies" so while this vest fits the chest it is very short and then flares out around the stomach. I would definitely recommend the men's version. It isn't as form fitting, but I like the look and it fits well. Still a great product! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Addition Bought this to use as an added warmth layer under my fleece jacket. It’s perfect! First the color is gorgeous. It’s a very soft creamy winter white. It’s thin enough to wear for a little warmth in fall, or to layer under another fleece or jacket. It holds body heat well without adding added bulk. I love it. The size is true & fits perfect with a little added space so it’s not skin tight. Would highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wide hips size up Great vest, warm but runs small in the hip area. My older fleeces seemed more robust. This vest just looked cheap but after wearing it, it's starting to look better. It's just thinner and that doesn't mean bad, just different. I believe it will hold up as Columbia is awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest I bought this vest and when it arrived I was thrilled. Great quality and true to size. I first bought it in orange. When it arrived, I liked it so much, I ordered coral that same day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't Be Happier This is one of the warmest, softest, vests I have ever worn. In Louisiana we measure winter in hours instead of months. This vest was perfect for most days, either over a long sleeve or short sleeve shirt. I got many compliments on the color and lines of the vest. It is a comfortable fit. Needless to say, I'm happy with this item. This vest, and it's counterpart long sleeve jacket, were gifts ... neither of which I would return or re-gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snuggly and comfortable This vest is a wonderful warm layer to add on cool days, indoors or outside. I noticed that another customer complained about the stiff, plastic feel of the fleece. Upon washing, the fleece becomes softer. It's really quite nice. I purchased this vest in the 'Bluebell' color; it's gorgeous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs a little big but great for layering This vest is SO comfy, but I probably could do with the size down as my regular size fits a little loose. I layer it with bulkier sweaters and its perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect but... Quality, fit, and design are all great; however, need to have a reverse zipper from the bottom; not just on this piece but ALL of your apparel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! I purchased a black polar vest from Columbia and am very satisfied. It has an excellent fit, is well made and warm. Do note that the black is in fact more of a charcoal grey. It is an attractive colour, but it is not black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this vest! I decided on the Bluebell. It's a denim color and I love it. The zip up pockets are fantastic. I'm pleased with the softness and fit. I plan to purchase another color soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cozy The Benton Springs fleece (in all Benton Springs garments) is not the nicest quality I've ever worn - feels plasticey - but it washes well and the fit is really comfortable on me, so I'll keep buying them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Super short and runs very small Overall disappointed, this is VERY short on me, and small as well. I ordered a hoodie at the same time in a size down, and it actually fits, that was ordered in a 2x. I ordered this vest in a 3x and it is considerably smaller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like wearing a grandma's warm hug! Bought this for upcoming Alaska trip - very pleased to find a Plus Size section and then it was in my favourite colour AND THEN it was on sale! Hello - that's a win! Arrived very quickly, fits like a dream, the fleece is very soft and not pilly like cheaper fleece can be. LOVE the zippers, the inside pocket, the zip-up exterior pockets - I will never lose anything out of my pockets again. Fits great under my new Columbia rain jacket. Can't lie: I've started checking this website a lot more often, knowing that the quality is excellent and the cost per wear works out. Very pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect vest I feel a bit like a lumberjack when I wear this with my plaid shirts, but it's just what I needed to stay a bit extra warm. Also great layered under my winter jacket when I have to wait for the bus I the cold. Every bit of extra insulation helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vests! Love these! Since I tend to be hot natured, I wear one as a coat the entire winter; unless I'm up in the mountains, a vest, scarf, and gloves are perfect for keeping warm. Also, the zippered pockets are large enough to take the place of a purse for essentials if I want to keep my hands free ~ at times I have even carried a bottle of water in one. Since I wear a vest almost every day, I have 4 of them in different colors ~ definitely one of the best and most versatile pieces of clothing I've ever bought.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic keeps me warm. Classic fit a powder blue perfect. thought the material was a little thinner then usually but it keeps me warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful even if a bit big I purchased this vest after searching high and low for 3 months to find just the one I was looking for. This was the closest I found. I recently purchased a Lady D down coat in the exact same size and it is a bit snug so be aware the sizes do fluctuate. It is a nice vest, warm, soft and comfortable. I think a more versatile color may be a wiser choice since it can be tough to pair many long sleeve shirts to some of the vest colors. I went with the plum and it looks very nice with a black base layer top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection! Great item to wear in almost every season - outdoors in the winter months and even in air conditioning in the summer months. Fit was great. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful quality... Runs a little large.. Good quality items are made to fit correctly and I'm used to having to order larger on less quality items... Will continue to order these quality items in the smaller size❤️

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's Only Okay I bought two of these vests to wear over long-sleeved t-shirts and scrub pants at work, so I don't need them to be mountaineering quality, but for the price, I find these to be a bit thin and featureless. For the price, I was expecting a heavier fleece. For the price, I was expecting adjustable elastic around the bottom hem. This is a very, very basic and lightweight vest. The colors are true to the website, and very nice. They are true-to-size. I would recommend this product, but only with a discount or coupon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Color not as expected The color of the vest I received is way off. It is turquoise/jade green. The color shown on my screen (emerald) is a very different color (and much darker) than the one I got. Since I have muddy paws around, the lighter color shows too much. Prob would spend most of its life in the laundry basket. The fit and length are good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great looking item I love this Spring Fleece Vest, sleeveless, and the color is really neat, Pink, It does run a tinch small, but it is fitted, so i think that is why. Price was super too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So great, I bought two. I purchased one of these for my mother for Christmas 2013. It seemed like half the time I went to visit them in the cooler months, she'd be wearing it around the house. I bought her one of a different color for Christmas of 2014! At this point I didn't even care because I new she loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this vest! I have found vests to be difficult to fit. This one is great. Snug--not tight. Have only worn it once so far, but I was pleased with the way it looked on me and the compliments I received while wearing it. If it helps, I am a plus size and this ran true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful wardrobe addition Nice feel, nice fit, very warm. Ordered in 3 different colors - can't wait for winter to get here. I'm usually warm but sometimes have a colder work environment so a fleece vest will be perfect. Wore it once already on a fall, outdoor day - perfect for that as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional and Fashionable Flattering with the princess lines. I think they fit a little snug for my taste. Not too small or tight, just snug. So I ordered up one size and I love it. So warm and cozy. I have had three for 7 years and wanted new ones for a trip to Europe in May. Planning to wear the vest (bought three in different colors) most everyday with slacks, long or three quarter sleeve tops with scarf to match. You can dress up or down with these vest. So comfortable for flying too. Want my chest warm and my arms free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I teach in a high school where the temp varies. I have a vest in almost every color so that I can wear as needed.
