Women’s Going Out™ Vest is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Vet Ever This vest is so warm and soft. I sure wish I was quicker and bought this vest in another color before it went out of stock. This vest is one of the best purchases I have ever made from Columbia. The vest feels amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Vest Ever! I wear this vest with so many different types of outfits whether it be casual or for a hike. It's warm and the material is top quality. I get compliments every time I wear it. I am 5'4 and 102 pounds and I order the small size. It's perfect because I can wear it as is or with a sweatshirt underneath to layer up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional AND Stylish! I was immediately drawn to the shawl collar on this vest. It gives the piece a decidedly dressy appearance, making it a great choice for...going out! The fabric is soft to the touch and has a matte finish. I've gotten so many compliments on this vest. It is a functional, exceptionally-made piece of outerwear, but design details and a flattering fit take it to the next level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable ever This vest is SO comfortable! Its warm, but I haven't tried it in any really cold weather- so I'm not sure how it will compare to down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort And Warmth This vest ran true to size. I wore a long sleeve shirt underneath and found it to be very warm in my chest where I needed it. The comfort of this vest is great - not to snug but does not hang loose. It does have drawstrings on the bottom of you wanted to pull it in some for a tighter fit on the hips. This product was exactly what I expected it to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very soft This vest runs a little large but looks good over a thick shirt. It is very soft but I am worried the material might snag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved the vest, material etc. This vest runs very small, especially in the hip area and I was also not able to zip it. I can usually order a Sm. but am going to re-order in a Med. or even thinking Lg. as I want to be able to layer underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dressy casual yet versatile This is a great dressy casual and very warm vest. The collar makes it more feminine than the other standard stick up collars. I ordered a medium and Im 5'2" 145lb with an athletic/stocky build. This vest fits great as long as what's under it is thin and not bulky. You can easy dress this up or down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super soft material! Love, love this vest. It is super soft and comfortable. Runs a little small. I wear a medium and went with a large. I wish they had more colors. Ordered the black and dusty purple and before the order shipped, the purple was out of stock. Bummer. Love the black though. Would definitely recommend this vest. A little pricey, but worth it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from vest I like the look of the vest though, with V collar, it isn't too practical. It runs true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO SOFT! I purchased this vest as a gift and fell in love with the fit and fabric. It's so buttery soft with the perfect amount of warmth. I ended up going back and getting another one for myself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Vest I am a 'vest' person & absolutely love this vest. I purchased every color. Although it runs true to size, I reordered a size up to allow more room for layering underneath. So soft & cozy! Can dress it up for work or dress down for casual. I highly recommend it....wish came in more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and attractive vest This vest is great quality and a perfect fit. Not only will it clearly help me to keep warm, but looks great - very stylish and attractive. I put true to size, but it does allow room for a thicker top under it. I bought a small and I'm 5'10" and 140 pounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So soft! This vest is extremely soft and I love how it looks nice than a typical vest. I am 5'3, weigh 130lbs and ordered a small. I could probably do an XS but I like the room I have on this one.
