Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest. I love this vest. I have this vest and the fleece vest also. This vest is less bulky than the fleece but just as warm. I love that I can layer it under my jacket for extra warmth without looking like a big puffy marshmallow man. This will definitely be a staple in my winter wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right Vest, Wrong Size! I purchased this vest after reading a ton of the reviews. I ordered a size up thinking I would need the room to wear a hoodie underneath. Well...I could fit 3 under! I will be returning this and ordering a size down. I am so bummed because this is a GREAT vest! It is so comfy and cozy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted! This vest is exactly what I was looking for. A light weight, non puffy vest to wear on cool days. Above zero temps are perfect with a light long sleeve shirt and up to -10 is comfortable with a polar fleece underneath. The Ruby Red colour is bright and will carry me through the seasons perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice - Pros & Cons of active fit The Active fit improves the aesthetics of the vest, but if your waist and hips are larger, you may find you need to buy up a size and then you will have access room and larger than necessary arm holes. Not a problem unless the wind is blowing. I LOVE Patagonia Nano Puff (PNP), but with no Plus sizes you have to by the men's version. The Columbia vest is much nicer looking and fits better. Seems to be as warm as the PNP, but not as thin (critical when layering under my waders and rain shell).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ELECTRIC BLUE VEST Light, warm and beautiful. LOVE the colour of blue. Great fit very consistent with all my Columbia clothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight vest! It's a great fit. I'm 5'10 and would prefer it if it was about 2 inches longer, but still very flattering. Wear it under my ski coat as another layer, or just bombing around town.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Utilitarian This is my second vest. I love this product. It is lightweight and durable. I wear it with everything. It is great in fall and spring as the only layer I need to wear to keep warm when outside. In the winter it is excellent layer to keep warm without bulk. I highly recommend this product. I have encouraged my friends to get one and many have. Everyone comments about its utility and warmth. Enjoy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best vest ever! I normally shy away from vests mainly because I feel like I look like I'm a walking hand grenade, but this vest is built thin, yet does the job! It's light and the reflective tech does the job without making me overheated. While I'm usually a 1X, I ordered a size up in case I wear something a little bulky, and the sizing was fine. The collar is a nice width for turning up or laying flat. Another thing I've noticed is with other down-type clothes, I build up a static charge that shocks me when I remove it, but this vest doesn't seem to do that. Until it gets colder outside, I'm wearing it mostly indoors as the temps chill down. This vest is an excellent addition to my wardrobe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for a great price! Great color! Lightweight. I normally wear an xl top so I went up one size to a 1x to be safe since reviews indicated it runs small. It fits perfectly! You won't be disappointed!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Style and Color could double as a life jacket. The style and color are not great. The red hibiscus color was more of a bright orange. I was disappointed that it didn't have more of a fitted cut - like the website image suggested. It hangs straight down without any curve at the waste. The red hibiscus vest could double as a life jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent present for Mom! After I bought my Columbia Omni Heat jacket, I knew my Mom would also love this wonderful heat-preserving technology, so I bought her the vest. She is delighted by the Omni Heat technology, which keeps her nice and warm. I also know that Columbia products are always of excellent quality and worth the price, and I love to support Oregon businesses as well. Thank you for your excellent products and great company!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this for snowboarding in the springtime I bought this for snowboarding in the springtime. Haven't tested it out as a snowboard vest but I have been wearing it around the house as the temps start to drop. It's very comfortable I love the hidden chest zip pocket. That will be handy when I wear it snowboarding. The length is good too. It's shorter in the front than in the back which I like. I hate it when jackets/vests don't cover the small of your back when bend over. I got the purple (Quill) color and I like it cause it's a deep purple - not too bright. I did say it was a little on the small side. I think it's cause the material doesn't have any give. If you are between sizes like I am (between 1x & 2x) go for the larger size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sizing not small like thought I ordered a 2x after reading reviews that they run small. That wasn't the case and would of ordered a 1x had I known a little large to be worn with a long sleeved shirt underneath. Good product just ordered wrong size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very comfy and warm the material is light weight, and very soft, and isn't super puffy so it fits under my coat. It's also nice and warm, and is a lovely color.
