Women’s Benton Springs™ Vest is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 279.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect vest I needed to replace my old worn out fleece vest and could not find one anywhere. I have purchased several Columbia items made for women fishers so thought maybe they will have a fleece vest also. They have several, this one fits perfect, has side zipper pockets and is very comfortable under jackets and coats as a core warming layer. I couldn’t be more pleased and look forward to fall and winter hiking, walking and fishing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vest I love that this vest isn't bulky. I drive, and my dress pants don't have pockets that hold much. This gives me the chance to keep things like phone and keys on me without looking like I'm jugging. It keeps me looking professional. It gives warmth when it's chilly out, but doesn't seem overly warm when it is on the warmer side out. Slim profile fits great under other jackets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and comfy Fits well, feels good, does the job! The cut is not as lengthy as some vests seem to be lately but I like it. Vest fits nicely under my rain jacket or over a hoody. What's not to love?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, comfortable and great quality This is a high quality vest and looks new after years of use! It does not pill or shed like other brand fleece, fits well and the zippered pockets prevent items from falling out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's fleece vest I bought this and one in white. They fit correctly to size, thick enough for outdoor and comfy to layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cozy Layer This vest is cozy and warm! Living in Florida, the weather can vary a lot and I do not always need a full coat. This vest is a nice option to keep my core warm and is layerable. The fit is true to size and is not overly fitted or loose. The style is good for outdoor exercise or just wearing around!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Received one a year ago at Christmas and have worn it frequently! However, I've lost 30 lbs and it was too big so I bought a smaller size because I couldn't live without it! It's perfect for Texas weather. Often wear it over long sleeved shirts and can add a coat over it if needing the extra warmth since I work outside doing equine therapy. Looks great and several people have bought one because they liked mine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs rather small/inferior fabric While very well crafted, the material is thin & feels rather cheap. The larger issue is the poor fit. I am a size 6, or Small, but in ordering this vest, thought of ordering a "Medium" to be able to wear layers under it. It's obviously not marked properly because it's smaller than another (size "small") vest, and was looking like it's tight on my 5'4" frame while wearing only an undershirt. Must be returned. Oh dear :-/. If ordering this item, you may have a hit or miss with sizing, & realise the quality of the material will leave you a bit disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit over-priced I like this product but I do think it is very light and cheap quality for the price. The sale price of $29.99 is okay but if I had paid $45.00 I'd be upset. If you're looking for great quality and durability I would recommend another brand but if you're simply looking for something light to match your outfit, this'll do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from changed this vest! I always order Columbia vests and have several in my closet. I needed another black one, but this one was so small that I thought they had sent the wrong size! Nope~ just changed the way they fit now, I guess.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am so frustrated with Columbia sizing! I read all comments about products, study the "fit" given for each item, and double-check my measurements. Still, in some shirts/sweaters/fleece jackets I wear a large and in others an extra large. Getting tired of paying to return things! Ugh... That said, this is a well-made fleece vest in a gorgeous color (Bluebell). I do recommend it, but good luck with sizing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fleece Vest This vest lives up to all my expectations save one. The Nightshade color, which I thought would be navy, is not even close to it. It is an odd shade of purple. Having said that, I am keeping the vest because I do like it, but I just wanted other buyers to be aware if they are looking For a navy vest, this is not it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality vest It's a tad big in the bust area but I'm quite small there. Very warm and breathable. Great to wear underneath a jacket and not look bulky.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WOMEN’S BENTON SPRINGS™ VEST Product is great ... but the sizing is way off According to the chart I should be medium but the vest was huge on me

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like not love In wanting to update my vests, I've searched to find the same trim princess cut I had in my old Columbia vests. I'm 36C and it seems by the time I fit my bust, many vests are too baggy in the midsection so I order this vest with princess seams. I found size SM to run a bit large overall, with the arm holes especially large. I kept this in charcoal, since I think the XS would be too snug for layering, but returned the haute pink since the bright color made the large fit more obvious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for Perfect fit, high quality and good price. What more could you ask for?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from no chin guard on zipper This vest is great except it doesn't have a chin guard on the top of zipper which is slightly uncomfortable when zipped up for skiing or hiking in cooler temperatures. Add the chin guard and it would be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I was Looking For I had a Columbia Vest from several years ago. I wanted to replace it and it was what I was looking for. The style has changed just a little, and I think the seaming detail on the sides are a bit more flattering. Great vest for layering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not surprised this is sold out! Nice vest for the price, I would have preferred a darker colour but the white is a nice balance to more colourful running tops. I love Columbia and proud to wear this. It is a little boxy but maybe after a wash it will shrink a bit. I bought an XL, 5'6, 165 pounds, curvy figure, 38D chest. I think L would have been too tight. Great casual going out piece and for on the trails!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vest This vest is very nice and comfortable and is great for those days where a jacket is just a little much for the weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seams are off Or maybe it's me. I have two other Benton Springs vests in the same size that fit me well. This one felt a little tight under the arms and the princess seams did not hit me in the right spot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very thin and poor quality Received the vest and it is completely see through because it is so thin. Does not help with warmth at all and is not good quality. Would not recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is perfect for so many outfits. I LOVE this vest!! All of my friends have it, and I finally decided to buy it myself. It's perfect for so many outfits. You can wear it with long sleeve t-shirts. You can wear it with cute long sleeve shirts. There really is no way that you cannot rock your outfit when you have it on. I'm not just saying that to sway anyone. It's perfect. Plus, it adds a little warmth. (PS: I'm 5'4 and 118 lbs & I ordered a medium, and it fits perfectly with room for layering too.)
