I've tried several down vests and not one of them compares to this one. This vest is comfortable, warm and stylish. My only quip is with the zipper. At first, it was hard to start and undo, but it now functions perfectly- not sure why this happened. The vest does not smell like anything. Several of the other vests I tried had a water fowl odor- very unpleasant. Buy one and enjoy!
I would recommend this product.

Very snuck around my wasit, but still feel comforterble. I am about 148lbs, Large size fits very fit. Just wish a little more room around the waist. I still keep the vest, it is very comfertable and stay warm. I even wear a little thick layer under, it still fit okay. So happy to have a warm vest without the bulk look.
I would recommend this product.

I just got this, which was convenient as the temperatures in Portland (OR) just plummeted into the low 30's. I love the jacket, especially the higher color. It helps with the wind, for sure. The only con, would be that it is not super fitted when worn over a shirt, but I find it to be fitted enough. I think if it was super fitted, it would be tight, which would limit use if I wore it over anything of substance. Overall, I LOVE this vest. Also it is so compact. Love!
I would recommend this product.

I love this vest! It's perfect, really. It's warm enough to wear around town with a cute winter scarf but also thin enough to wear under a ski jacket without making you look like the Michelin Man. The collar is a higher collar than most so I often have to fold it down, but it's good for bundling up. I think it's pretty good quality as well. The fit is much more figure flattering than some other brands. I would recommend this product to anyone. It's worth the money.
I would recommend this product.

This vest is perfect. Warm but not bulky and has great princess seams for a thin profile. Would definitely recommend this vest!

I love Columbia products but this vest was not what I was expecting for the price. It ran large, at least for me. I ordered a medium. I like to wear just a long sleeve shirt plus maybe one more thin layer under a vest. If you like to wear a sweatshirt under, it would be perfect. It was pretty thin and not that warm (I was wearing indoors). Perhaps would have been warmer if it fit a little tighter. The color was a little lighter than it seemed online. I am returning for a cheaper vest. Quality seems the same, this one can't be much warmer, so why pay triple the price? I read another review about a different Columbia vest running large, so this time I ordered a small. I'll let you know when it arrives!
I do not recommend this product.
