Rated 5 out of 5 by Dejala from Perfect for my needs Love that the top zipper is lined with soft felt like fabric so the zipper doesn't rub on your neck and chin. The inside breast pocket is large enough for a cell phone or glasses. It is also a good length.

Rated 4 out of 5 by atravelgal from Good Basic Layering Piece We have experienced unseasonably low winter temperatures in the teens and mid-twenties and the Mighty Lite III has come in very handy to keep me warm and toasty on those days. The outer material of the vest is thin, but the Omni Heat lining makes up for that with the warmth it provides. It's a great layer over a sweater or long sleeve tee, and I was able to wear my Columbia Snow Eclipse jacket over it without feeling bulky. I ordered my vest in a medium and it is an EXACT fit at the hips where the zipper begins. It fits close to the rest of my body without being uncomfortable. If I were to order another vest, I believe I would order a large to give me a bit more wiggle room. Overall, the Mighty Lite III is a good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kfleisch from A cozy warm stylish vest I bought this vest because I was looking for a down vest that was versatile.This vest can go from the ski hill to apre ski drinks while keeping you warm not hot and looking good.I have another puffer vest that I like but when worn over a thick sweater I feel likethe Michelin Man,this is lightweight and tapered in the waist so it fits great.Its great under a coat for extra warmth or over a sweater for when you want to look good while staying cozy.Im 5 ft 7" and 150 lbs and the large fits great with a little room for a sweeter underneath This red colour is beautiful and I would call it watermelon.Its so bright and vibrant and it stands out.I have bought lots of Columbia outdoor wear as they are amazing quality and if you take good care of your stuff they last forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HCoop from Bought to Replace my old vest Just opened the delivery package and I like what I see. I've had an older vest and it's lasted me a few years, bought this one as a replacement and like the subtle improvements. The XL is larger but since I like to wear it over big sweaters, it's perfect. Hopefully, this one will last as long as the old one. Columbia products have always been a sure bet. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kailey333 from This product is amazing I live in a cold winter climate and for years I have searched for a product that would actually keep me warm even on the coldest days! Last years I bought a Columbia winter jacket and it's been the best jacket I ever owned. This year I wanted to get a vest for the more mild days and of course I came back to Columbia and boy am I happy I did. This vest is warm, comfortable and doesn't restrict you from any movement or activities. On the colder days I still want to wear it I just add one of my Omni heat Columbia sweaters and they work perfectly together for all day warmth and comfort. This vest fits true to size, it isn't bulky and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fashionable, practicable and warm vest! I will be a forever customer of Columbia thank you so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anastasiarae from Vest A perfect light weight vest that is not bulky so you can wear under your bigger jackets. The insulation liner inside keeps you very nice and warm. This vest is an amazing addition to wear on top of sweaters and long sleeves in the winter! I am a size 8 and bought a medium. I feel the vest is very true to size. It fit like a glove so I would suggest getting a L if you want something a little baggier and not as form fitting/tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kapayne from Love it! I've been looking for a vest that wasn't too poofy yet still kept me warm! This one is perfect, fits true to size and is very cute on. Also, easily folded up to store in a pack. The one complaint I do have is the collar is kinda of long, I have to keep it folded down so it doesn't bother my neck... But overall I love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by GirlWhoHikes from Good Lightweight Vest I bought this vest on sale in XS and it fits exactly as expected. It matches the description and picture perfectly. I have not had the opportunity to test it in winter condition yet but so far, it seems like a good lightweight method to layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ivonne from Lite Vest I absolutely love this vest. It's light enough to wear it on a windy day and I am sure it will be perfect when using it in chilly days because it keeps you warm enough not to be super bulky. If they had it in different colors I would get another one!. The length is a bit long (but I am a short person 4'11")

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barbara60 from What I was looking for I wanted a thin vest but warm as well. I find omni-heat excellent, I got the warmth without the bulk. This vest is true to size and stylish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Annie123 from light vest I said it runs a little large because I have a larger bust size and was able to do it up comfortably. Instead of buying a 1X. Is light but warm. Also it doesn't puff up at the at the bottom back it stays next to your body. Then no drafts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sash1080 from Vest for every occasion I debated about this vest for a few weeks. It is lighter than I imagined but being plus size that worked in my favor. You don't have that unflattering down puffiness. I got a size up so I could wear it with a sweatshirt. It was perfect. Happy with my purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by GreyhoundGal from Happy with this vest I've been impressed with the Omni-Heat Reflective material and also bought a hat with this material. Over all, this is a great lightweight vest that keeps you warm. Throughout the torso it fits as expected. The length is also great and what I was hoping for, it stops about mid gluteus maximus for me. However, it would be nice if it flared out a little at the hips as it is tight at this point and I have to bunch it up to zip it up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sherry77 from Sadly Dissapointed on Fit I got a new Columbia jacket for Xmas and decided to order the same style vest on Boxing Day due to the sales. Unfortunately when it arrived the fit was not the same as the jacket. Still holding on to return which will be at my expense. Not sure on ordering the size up or just returning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KimmieKat from GREAT product but runs a little small I love the fact this vest isnt "puffy" Its warm and gets the job done without making me feel like im being suffocated!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KJill from Warm without bulk I wear a vest frequently in the fall, winter, and spring and this is my go to vest for warmth without bulk. The Omni-heat insulation does keeps me warm without much fluff, so the vest is thin enough to layer well. The zippered interior pocket is great – much better than the Velcro that some companies use. The exterior hand pockets are generously sized and are also zippered. Also, I like the style of the collar, I can wear it zipped up for added warmth. Overall, this vest is warm and stylish. I’m 5’5”, 120 pounds and got my usual Columbia size small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AZLady from Keeping me warm I live in Arizona and do not like being cold. I really like the reflective lining and find that I can be toasty even when I'm in the cold places. The fit was a bit more snug than I expected, especially around the hips. Normally, a medium would be my size and I've even lost a few pounds so I was a little surprised at the snug fit. I don't think I can really put an sweater of any significance under the vest.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MonLou from Inconsistent Overall Fit This is the first time I've purchased a Columbia product and do not "love" it. The fit is strange: the armholes are large and the shoulders sit above my own shoulders slightly, when zipped, the vest tapers to fit more snuggly as tapers along waist and more so at hips. The pattern seems to be a wide V shape from top to bottom. Odd. This would also be better if there were a Double Zipper, makes an item like this far more useful. I'm deciding whether to return or nor, I wanted this because of the Omni heat reflective lining, it really does work and keep me warm. I work outside a lot during the winter season on tv/film sets in NYC, but the lack of double zipper along with not great fit make this less appealing. I'm a petite small framed woman, 5' tall 105 lbs, and bought an XS. Not one of Columbia's best products.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Emspatti from Disappointed I was really looking forward to this vest, but it arrived and I am disappointed. It is so incredibly thin, it does not even feel like it has any filling in it at all. It is also rather large, I bought size Large and I am a solid sz10, athletic build, 5'6" and 155 pounds, 36C. The large was gaping in the arms and around the body. Looked really sloppy. Almost considered trying a medium, but it just doesn't seem like it has enough warmth to make it worth it. It may be cute in the right size, but I am looking for as much function as style.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Christinaclimber from Thin Attractive looking but seems thin. I don't noticed Increased warmth. 5'5 140 muscular build, medium is too big but I usually wear a small. Some of the reviews said to size up. Will try to layer with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DianaNYC from WOMEN’S MIGHTY LITE™ III VEST Light thin vest. I wear size large & bought a large. I wear the full zip fleece underneath this vest. Together, the vest is a snug fit. Buying an extra large, would then have the collar and arm holes too wide. This vest keeps me warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fishchick from always good This is super light weight, very warm and no bulk. I love the neck. You can wear it fully zipped up and straight or folder over while zipped. Always the option for open collar. The one feature I wish it had is adjustable waist. However the interior zippered chest pocket makes up for this. This is a great piece.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DDew from Great product I was looking for a vest for slightly warmer days and also for an added midlayer when doing outdoor activities during winter season. The vest works great; you can feel the heat-trapping technology is there. Only problem is that I feel that this product, as other clothing by this brand, is made for taller people. I am 5'2", hence the bottom of the vest hangs at the base of my hips or bum, or maybe even a few cm below it. If you're taller, this should be perfect. ++tall collar a plus! Love, love this part especially. -purple looks more like blue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LJ820 from Love the Might Lite III Vest! This vest is cute, stylish and warm without being bulky. My normal size was a little big (it is a regular cut, not a feminine cut) so I had to exchange it for a smaller size. It is easy to wear it under other clothing without looking like the Michelin Man. I highly recommend the vest!

Rated 2 out of 5 by MichiganGoBlue from Highly unimpressed Wow. Am I disappointed. So thin. Runs small. I'm 5'5" and 110 and the small is a little too small. It's not even stylish. For a winter vest I expect a little puff to it. But yikes I wouldn't even consider this a winter vest. More like a fashion vest. Big disappointment.
