Women’s Mix It Around™ Vest is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 173.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest for cool weather I ordered this vest to take on spring/fall weather camping trips. Lives up to the hype! It's cozy, warm without being bulky, and the color ("Nocturnal" - whoa so nature) is just like the photo. Love the pockets, the zipper, and the fleece accents on the sides and interior of the neck. My only complaint is that the collar, which looks great when folded down, looks too big/disproportionate if popped up and not zipped. Sometimes I just want a warm neck without it being zipped up to my nose, ya know? That being said, I consider this a solid purchase and would recommend it to my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product, not what I needed This vest fits fine and seems to be good quality, but it just isn't what I was looking for. I was looking for a quilted vest to wear under lighter windbreaker type jackets, but this one is very light and not quilted. No complaints specific to the product though, other than that it is very thin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest w/extra long collar to keep cold out! I recently moved to Colorado where the temperatures can fluctuate a lot from morning to midday to night. The vest is for layering to give me some extra warm but not too bulky to fold up and put in my bag when it gets warmer. I am between and 8 and 10 and the vest fits rather loosely. I can wear bulkier sweaters under it on colder days.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too big for me I liked the product but it's too big for me so i'm not going to be able to use it. If i try to return it, i would have to pay for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from well rounded vest! I love this sporty vest! It worked well for extra warmth under a coat for skiing. And over jeans it adds a little warmth and sportiness for plain old hanging out. I bought it on a whim (thanks to a great sale), and ended up wearing it tons during our 2 week winter trip in the Alps. I could see wearing it loads now that I'm home too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vest I have been in the market for a nice vest to keep me warm in the cooler months. I enjoy the one I bought here, although I do wish it was a bit more fitting (I'm tiny though as is so take that into consideration) and was a bit puffier. Otherwise, AMAZING material and super cute! Would purchase again with maybe some slight altercations to make it a bit smaller/fitting for me. Get it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cozy vest Nice colors and comfy. The neck is roomy and allows you to duck down into it if it's cold and windy. My only criticism is that it's not very fitted, and it could be a little longer. That said, I'm 5'9", so it may be perfect for someone a little shorter. Easily accommodates a bulky sweater underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great and feels good Very stylish, comfortable, and keeps you warm! The size is very true! The Columbia logo is hidden under the collar in the back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Beautiful blue color. I'm normally an xl... 5'9", with a 36dd chest, but it's just a little big even with my base layers. Not big enough to exchange. :) Absolutely love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made for NorCal I have two of these, and will probably order another. Perfect weight for morning 2-3 mile walk in the bay area, blocks the wind and chill just enough. Flattering fit, not too boxy, not puffy. I am 36DD, 32 waist, 40 hip and the medium fits in the bust with a bit of room to spare in the waist and hip. Washes up well in cold water, I hang to dry. Great value on sale!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Water repellent vest I wish the best could be a little beat better finished in side and slitly thicker with zipper in both pockets. The Columbia name is hidden in the back and I wish it was visible, small somewhere in the front. But overall still very good .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vest I love my new vest! It's perfect for PNW layering. I originally bought a S, but it was too big, and I would only be wearing a long sleeve shirt underneath, so I exchanged it for an XS. It's not snug, but I love it all the same. I guess I might be able to fit a sweatshirt underneath it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect weight, not too bulky I normally don't care for "puffer/quilted" winter wear--many of them make people look like the Michelin Man! This vest is nice, though. I don't feel like I'm trussed up like a turkey. Keeps me warm without visually gaining 15 pounds! Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mix It Around Vest Made well, great for cold weather , hence the zip around collar. Color will match most. Price was good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and right size The vest is light weight and it’s best when I wear it inside a winter jacket. And it can easily gives me warmth for a bit cooler days. Very comfy and just fits me perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very cute! This vest is very cute! Unfortunately, I ordered a size too big and wasn't able to keep it. Of course, the color I wanted quickly sold out (because it was so cute). I definitely would have reordered though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable This vest is light and very warm. Comfortable to have on when doing chores, work etc. It’s just perfect if you want a vest that’s not bulky yet provides the warmth. Had to buy another since someone stole my previous one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful vest We bought this for my mother in law and she really enjoys it. It's not too heavy and easy to keep clean. She wears it often and likes the rust/brown color as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Layering Vest This is a great thin vest for layering. I especially love the collar that zips all the way up to cover my entire neck, which is very handy! Overall very pleased with my purchase!
Date published: 2018-01-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Short in length Great weight vest but two things I dislike, it runs short if you have a long torso and second I wish it had the Columbia name more visible. It’s tucked under the collar in back so you would never see it. Overall it’s a great weight vest and serves its purpose!
Date published: 2018-01-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful color I really like this vest but wish I had bought it one size down. I normally wear a large shirt. I thought it would be a bit warmer but maybe that’s because it’s a tad big? I do wear this vest all the time during sport or regular everyday places and I love the Phoenix Blue!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it I love this vest. It fits snug as they should. I thought it would be a little more insulated then it actually is. Which maybe my mistake. Maybe I didn’t read the description well enough before ordering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Would pass on this one I bought this vest on sale and although it wasn't the one I was looking for, I thought I would take a chance. The vest is okay, but that's it. It's very thin and runs a bit big compared to all of my other Columbia clothes. This might be because the fleece on the sides is really thin, stretchy, poor quality fleece. I'm not sure how or if it will even hold up. If I would have seen this in a store, I would have passed on it. I'm opting to keep it only because I got it on sale and I would have to pay to ship it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Lightweight Vest Bought one of these for each of my daughters for Christmas. They like them but one was a little small. They are nice weight but nothing that you would want to wear outside on a really Cold day! Nice quality.
Date published: 2018-01-13
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slightly disappointed I bought this vest to layer under my winter jacket as the temperature had fallen below average and I realised my usual winter get up did not provide me enough warmth on my long commutes. I love the jacket in that it fits well and feels good, however I'm not sure how well it will do for added warmth as it's is much thinner than expected, there is no padding. I will keep it though for I love the color and believe it will serve it's function at a more appropriate time, probably closer to spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOMEN’S MIX IT AROUND™ VEST - great layering piece This vest is true to size and a great layering piece. Perfect for a chilly day and walking to dog, running errands and everyday activities. The vest isn't bulky at all so can be rolled up small and put in a purse or backpack for later use. Or worn under a bigger coat if needed. I really like that the collar can be folded down or zipped up to create a "turtleneck" effect against the wind or colder weather.
