I already owned a previous version of this vest, so I knew I liked it. But this seasons model is even better. It fits a little on the big side - I have room for a hoodie or pullover under it, which is a huge plus! I've already worn it for iceskating, work, and going around town and it holds up great. I've even caught it on something a few times and it didn't tear! The center back length says its only 25" but it fits longer than my first one (which is also 25"). Another big plus for me because I have a long upper body. Overall I'm extremely satisfied. I've already recommended it to others and bought another one as a gift!
I would recommend this product.

Wow! This vest is wonderful. I am allergic to Down so it's difficult to find a warm vest that's not made from feather. I wasn't sure what to expect with "omni-heat" but thought it was worth trying. I wore this into work today and usually turn on a space heater because it's so chilly in the building. I haven't taken the vest off as it keeps the chill out of my body and I haven't needed the space heater at all. This is great! I highly recommend this vest.
I purchased a Large because I'm busty and it zips up just fine. I find this very true to size. I purchased this in Black, but definitely going to order one if another color.
I would recommend this product.

I looked for something warm but not bulky. This is a real find! I live in the Northwest and walk about 6 miles a day with my dog. We have lots of wind-- making winter temps feel lots colder. The vest works perfectly over a sweater--or if it's raining--under a rain shell. Can't beat it!
Plus--it's attractive; although a little large on me--even over a sweater. Columbia often runs small---this didn't. I may order one in Small.
I would recommend this product.

I wear this pretty much every day now. It's lightweight and very warm without restricting movement.
Note: the collar is much taller than it appears in the picture. It will not stay up if zipped the way it is in the photo.
I would recommend this product.

I love this vest. I'm allergic to down, so I'm grateful to have a warm vest without down. I do feel it runs small, like all other Columbia products I've tried. I read the reviews first and so many people said this one did NOT run small, that I went ahead and ordered my regular size. It's quite snug, and I'm still deciding about that. Also I can see what looks like a tiny amount of stuffing emerging from the seams. Probably nothing to worry about, but it gives it a less neat appearance. I love the high collar--it's nice and warm against the cold wind. Overall I like it, but it's not totally perfect. Next time I'd order a size up.
I would recommend this product.

I got this to wear indoors at work so I don't have to wear a jacket all day. The fit is a tad big. I am 5.5 and 130 lbs and got a small but I think the extra small would be to little. I can wear a shirt and hoodie underneath if need be. Excellent product! I was gonna buy another but they were sold out.
I would recommend this product.

This is my 4th purchase of a Women’s Mighty Lite™ III Vest, each one a different color. It is warm, and perfect either alone over a long-sleeved shirt on a chilly day or under a lightweight Columbia jacket on a very cold day. Beautiful colors.

I RARELY write online reviews, but was inspired to do so after receiving this vest today in both black and sea salt (white). I LOVE THEM! I live in Denver where winter months are sunny, mid to high 40s. I'm a stay at home mom who lives in black yoga pants, half- zip collared long-sleeve high performance long sleeve shirts, and down vests. I was looking for something light, no bulk and love the new "packable down" concept. I''m 5-10", 132 lbs, and usually wear a size 4 - 6 small in tops. I purcahsed this vest in small and it fits great & I appreciate the longer length. This vest adds that extra layer that makes your sporty outfit look complete. Also, I play a lot of tennis & this light weight vest will work well in the cool fall/spring months when playing outdoors is a bit chilly. Good for golf, too! Please offer in carnation pink & red! Consider making an inch smaller around the waist for a slightly more femine cut. Otherwise, perfect in every way! I'm looking forward to buying more of these if the color is right, don't really dig all the dark jewel tones....sorry.
I would recommend this product.

This vest is great! Before purchasing I was thinking Omni-heat was simply a hype-filled marketing technique. Not so! This vest is light weight, slim but incredibly warm. Wonderfully versitile & comfortable, perfect for our Minneapolis fluctuating temps. I have received tons of compliments & everybody asks where I bought it. And yes, it makes me look skinny. Looking forward to different colors next season.
