Love it

I needed something that could keep me warm but not overheat me since my car does not exist and i bike and walk most places. This vest is wonderful for that. It keeps my upper chest warm but doesn't get me sweltering. I bought the cream and it looks elegant and sporty. I am a fit 5'7 and columbia runs big on me, so I bought the XS small because my upper chest and shoulders are quite petite, so it fits me very well. Normally I would wear a small. I am most satisfied with my purchase
I would recommend this product.

I got this best for casual wear in the Fall. But I will be wearing it any chance I get. It's light weight, flattering, and real warm. I love the pockets and the removable faux fur trimmed hood. I have the D down jacket coming in the mail.
I would recommend this product.

This vest is true to size--perfect fit even with layers. First time wearing it was to a football game on a windy evening--kept me toasty the entire game. Only wish I hadn't taken removed the hood that day!

I am a size 10-12. I ordered this vest in an XL in hopes of wearing a mid to heavy weight sweater under it. It is so small that I can't close it wearing anything other than a lightweight sweater or cotton t-neck. Kind of defeats the purpose of this nice warm vest !

This vest is as beautiful as it is functional. Fits snug, very slimming and the fur hood is an added bonus. The vest adds warmth without the bulky feel.

Women's Lay 'D' Down Vest - loooove it

I got this in a size small although I'm usually a medium on top because of the reviews. It fits perfectly! I've gotten so many compliments on this, and it's just so comfy.
The fleece lined neck is so soft and warm, and the vest itself has become my new San Francisco jacket alternative. It's also perfect when I travel - stay cozy and plush in my seat without much bulk.
One con is the velcro along the zipper. It cheapens the look a bit, although it's come in functionally handy.

Extremely warm, stylish, hood is detachable. Fits a little small and the shoulder ends perfectly on me great but for someone with bigger shoulders, it wouldn't work. Great thickness. Keeps out the winter cold in all types of weather.

Love, love, love this vest! It is slightly fitted so is very flattering. The hood is a little big but definitely keeps me warm in the wind. I am 5'7" 120 lbs. Ordered XS and it is just right.

Very warm, comfortable, and looks pretty cool. I've worn it every day since I got it, and find that it is perfect for those days I am running in and out of stores, schools, etc. The velcro is slightly annoying when it sticks to a scarf or clothing, but it happens rarely and should not dissuade you from purchasing the vest. Oh, and the hood is great to block the wind but you wont have peripheral vision. Great site, too. Easy to order.

I am quite pleased with my Columbia Lay 'D' Down vest. I usually wear a Medium and ordered a Large for layering purposes. It is the perfect size for layering. The vest is quite well-designed and of quality construction. It is perfect for cold and/or wet weather. The omni-heat feature is great! I also love the ability to remove the hood, if desired. The fur trim adds a nice touch. I definitely recommend the Lay 'D' Down Vest to anyone who desires quality at an affordable price. Columbia is truly the Best!

And with Columbia, you get a lot. As per normal, Columbia delivers great again with this. I bought it for my girlfriend as a present, and she absolutely loves it. In addition to it looking great on her and being a perfect fit, it keeps her warm without overdoing it. (And when it's that cold, her Columbia jacket does the job just fine.) I've always bought Columbia and will continue to do so as long as they make amazing products like this one.

I have other brands of winter vests but this one is the
prettiest of all! I am not crazy about the velco used to close the jacket over the zipper but the furry hood is an attractrive and functional feature along with the contrasting black zippers and gray material on top which peeks out. I went for a long walk with my 2 pomeranians yesterday in the bitter cold and did not feel a thing. I would have liked the vest to have been made a little less snug but it does fit. The vest is as light as a feather; I think my scarf weighs more! I think the vest is worth the money but I did use my birthday discount.
I would recommend this product.
