Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for fall I bought this because I was looking for a cute vest.for fall family pictures. I love that it’s not bubbly looking or bulky. Will go great with a long sleeve tee. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely color I LOVE the dark ivy heather color and the quilting on this vest. The pockets are a good size and there are snaps to close the front with a hood if needed. I am typically a size xs in Columbia but I feel this vest is large around the armholes and I have extra fabric on back and sides. I understand that if you are wearing something bulky underneath that this could be a good thing, but if you are wearing a t-shirt or fitted shirt underneath, it’s too big in my opinion. I wish there was an xxs option. I love the color enough to keep this vest but just be mindful of what you plan on wearing with this vest when choosing your size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest! I ordered this vest for cold summer nights and transitioning into fall in the North Country. It’s perfect for my needs, femininely cut and flattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this vest! I love this vest. The material is so soft and I love that the sides are stretchy. People are saying this is running large, but I disagree if you plan on layering, plus it snaps closed instead of a zipper so you wouldn’t want it to be tight fitting as it would pucker out. I have a larger chest and I was concerned about it being a snap closure, but it’s perfect on me. I love that the pockets have a snap closure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs large This vest is phenomenal! I fell in love with the style and color online, and was eager to buy it at the sale price. When it arrived, it was even prettier than I thought! The only downfall is that it does run large. I read other reviews, but decided to stick with my usual sizing (medium) for Columbia outerwear. I should have sized down! I'm 5'4" and about 135 pounds. I could afford to lose 2-3" in fabric all around- the arm holes were the largest gap, and the sides are pretty stretchy, which gives me confidence that a small would work for people with similar body types. Just re-bought mine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best vests! This vest is lightweight, yet warm and very comfortable and not big and bulky light some others so it's more feminine looking!! I highly suggest this vest!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I absolutely love this vest. It can be dressed up or down. I usually wear a size 8 in tops and purchased a large because that was the only size left. The large fits great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the fit Wonderful vest for the Pacific NW. It works for hiking in the forests, walking along the beach and going up to the mountains to see the snow.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from More of a fashion piece than a function piece Love the look of this vest but found it a lot thinner than I expected. I was looking for a more stylish alternative to my standard down puff vest but this piece is too thin to provide much warmth. Keeping it because it looks great though. Also less than impressed with the snap buttons on the front... they leave gaping holes (added reason for no warmth) and are somewhat hard to snap closed. Wish there was a zipper instead. Fits like standard Columbia gear, runs true to size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Quite Perfect This vest is really lightweight and a lot warmer than it looks, but I think it could have had a little more reinforcement in the snaps. I feel like if I pulled too hard, they might pull out. I also don't like how the hood doesn't lie flat when down. It kinda bunches up in the back. If I had long hair, it would be a mess. I got it on sale and feel I paid too much for it. I'd never pay $75 for it. Sorry Columbia, but you asked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Evergreen State Vest When I first felt the fabric I thought, ‘how is this going to keep me warm?’ Then, I realized it had buttons instead of a zipper (not sure how I overlooked that from the picture). I put it on already thinking I was going to return it. But once I buttoned it up I changed my mind instantly. I love it. It’s so different from all the black vests I own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Vest for Fall in North Texas For reference I am 5'3" and currently 190lbs I'm originally from Washington but currently living in Texas. Not only did I love the name of this vest, it's turned out perfect for Texas' "fall weather". I'm in the process of losing weight so I ordered a large based on other's reviews of the vest "running slightly large". If I had gotten the XL it would have fit me perfect right now, but I wanted to be able to lose more weight and still wear it down the line. It's a bit long on me, but I'm short and tend to enjoy longer cut shirts and jackets to cover my bum. The snaps are surprisingly strong! So strong that I can button the whole vest with it being a size slightly too small and it'll stay closed even if I sit down. My favorite way to wear this vest is with a hoodie or long sleeve shirt underneath. It keeps me just warm enough for those chilly days that I don't want to wear a parka. The inside pockets (which I don't think are suppose to be true pockets?) are also a great bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Vest This has become my new favorite vest. It looks great and functions wonderfully. The side panels have a bit of a stretch to them, which makes it easy to move about. I have received lots of compliments on this vest - and its fit is flattering yet generous enough to move

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, stylish, This vest is fantastic! It is not bulky, incredibly comfortable, and easy to use when layering. I would recommend ordering your true size even if you are layering with it as it does run a scoatch big so there is no need to upsize. I ordered a size up just for that (I normally wear a medium), but should have just gotten the medium. Unfortunately they are out of the color I want in the Medium so will have to stick with the Large. No big deal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for fall I wanted a nice light vest with a hood, and this is exactly perfect. It's not bulky, and cute looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thin and stylish If your looking for a warm insulated vest, keep looking. This very stylish vest is warm enough for fall/spring layering. It’s thin, the fit is feminine and it runs a little large. I typically wear a medium and based on other reviews I bought a small and am glad I did! Received many compliments the first few times I wore. I like the convenience of zipper vests, but the buttons are a nice look so I don’t mind them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute vest I am 5’9” 155 pounds and a medium fits perfectly. Other reviews said this vest was long but since I am so tall it hits at normal vest length (which is great because most vests look short on me). I do wish the hood was removable so it would be easier to wear under coats, but otherwise I love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Definitely runs large I was so disappointed because I loved this vest so much. I'm 5'0" and the small was waaaaay too big. I actually ended up giving it to a friend of mine who is about 5'9" and it was a perfect fit for her. I would definitely still recommend this, but go at least one size down.
Date published: 2017-10-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I have never put a vest on that is so comfortable! It is thinner but still warm. I absolutely love this vest. It does run a bit on the bigger side. I am 5'3, 130lbs and I ordered a small and could probably get an XS but I am keeping the size I got in case I wear a thicker shirt underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the dog park or hiking in Autumn This vest is perfect for this time of year. It's not yet cold enough to need a coat but it's nice to have an extra layer for my body. I also like that I can throw the ball for the dogs without movement being hindered by sleeves.
Date published: 2017-09-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this vest This is a great vest but what I love most about it is the longer length that covers the bum. I think it runs just a bit roomy-- I am 5'8" 145 and the medium has plenty of room for layering. I do wish it had a zipper as well as the snaps but not a biggie. The pockets snap as well so that is a plus. I got the bloodstone heather and love the color--goes with everything. Might get the shark color if it goes on sale. I think it is just a bit pricey.
Date published: 2017-09-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs Large The vest runs a little large. I typically wear a small but when I tried it on in the store it was too big. I liked the vest so much that I ordered an extra small online, and it fits perfectly. The snaps are a little loud when they aren't snapped together, but other than that I love wearing this vest!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight perfect for fall Love the color, great fall layering piece. Runs a little big, wish I had gotten an xs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite vest This vest is super comfortable and has kept me warm on cool summer nights. Runs true to size for the most part. Love the vintage style! Wish it was waterproof for winter but still my go-to item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from **Highly Recommend**!!!!!! I've been searching for a vest for the longest time that was comfortable, had a hood, fit perfectly, was functional while outdoors and also stylish. When I came across the evergreen vest the looks of it had me reeled in. I am 5' 4" , 120lbs and usually wear a small but this time I got one size bigger than I normally do so I can wear a lightweight jacket underneath. It's perfect! Definitely my go to vest-- love it so much I got another color!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, Good Product I really like this vest. Don't listen to the reviews, this does NOT run small. I ordered up a size because of the reviews, and it was way too big! Unfortunately, that meant I had to return and reorder and pay extra shipping. However, I did like the vest enough to still have made it worth it. Overall, I really liked the vest.
Date published: 2017-08-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable and cute! I'm normally a size large but fit better in the medium. Overall, I love this vest. As summer ends and I begin to picture fall activities, I always see myself wearing this cute and functional vest.
Date published: 2017-08-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't wait for cold weather now! I bought this vest in preparation for when it cools down. I decided to go up a size in case I wanted to wear a thicker sweater or even a sweatshirt under it...which I will definitely be able to do. The quality is great! I can imagine this vest will hold up very well. I went with the gold color and it's gorgeous! Just to give everyone a reference...I am 5'4", 145 pounds, and an athletic build. Normally, I wear a medium in everything but if you want some wiggle room I would recommend going up a size.
