I was very disappointed at the waist line distance from shoulder to tie. Overall length down around hips was great. Fit through the shoulders and across breast was great. I am only 5'4 and evenly proportioned. The waist tie hit me under my ribs and not at my waist. Very odd spot. Would be perfect for a petite stature. I usually wear a 10/12 and purchased the large vest. Very light weight and had lots of potential. I sent it back due to the short waisted-ness only.
I would recommend this product.

I got it in fossil, a sort of khaki, and it is a perfect fit and weight for the spring and summer months. I tend to need a 1X so that my tops fit across my chest, and this is a perfect fit.
I would recommend this product.

I'm naturally short waisted, but this vest with the drawcord waist hit me under the breasts, and is cut way too short waisted! The fabric is what I've been looking for, but it's going back.
I do not recommend this product.

Know that the India Ink color is not black. Still, I love the washed-look colors. They look sporty or dressy enough to go anywhere!
I would recommend this product.

Very lightweight and long enough to cover it all
Should have got a size smaller.

I ordered this vest with warmer weather in mind and ordered a size up since I've always heard/thought/experienced Columbia clothes run small. It was not small. Had to return it and order a smaller size. It arrived and fit fine. Nice light weight vest for layering in warmer weather.
I would recommend this product.

Love the new style, slightly gathered sides and a little longer than the old style. Great product.

I loved this material and style but your 16-18 or 1X's are too small around the breast I think if you cut this product in a roomy cut it would be perfect. The 2X i purchased in last years vest was really huge and now this time I purchase a 1X and it is too small accross the bust. I'm very sad, because i will only be able to wear these vests if i lose about 15-20 lbs.
I do not recommend this product.
