Excellent warmth to the vest. Note that it is long in the back at 28 inches. The only issue I had was that the fit at the hips was tight and had to order up a size from a small to be able to zip the vest due to the snug fit at the hips on the smaller size.
I would recommend this product.

Really like all of the Omni-Heat products .. Have purchased vests, jackets boots and gloves ..
This vest feels like it would not keep you warm, but it's just the opposite .. very lightweight but keeps you warm .. great fit as well ... true to size .. I'm 6'0" and ordered an XL ..
Thanks ..
I would recommend this product.

I've only had the vest a couple weeks, but I love it so far. A lot of Columbia products don't always fit well but this vest fits perfectly. I am about 6'0" and 160 and the medium fits like a glove. For the price, I'm expecting this vest to last at least 2-3 years,so hopefully the quality is as good as the fit and function so far.
I would recommend this product.

This is vest that can go under sweatshirts, and jackets with ease.
The turtle neck feature allows the option of unzipped wear of the outer jacket. Incredible warmth for such a thin light vest. I will be looking to buy a jacket with this heat technology. Great product.
I would recommend this product.

I bought the vest through the Columbia catalog for my son in law who lives out of town. It was a little large for him, so I took it back to the Columbia Store rather than boxing it back up and sending it.
The store staff could not have been more helpful. They took it back, refunded my money, helped me to try and re-order in a smaller size, but it was unavailable. They took me to the dept in the store that has vests, and I replaced it with a similar vest. in the correct size. They could not have made the exchange easier!
I would recommend this product.

Bought this as gift for my husband. 6'2", 195 lbs. He can wear a large or XL, but bought XL to wear over sweater or polar tech. Works out great. Light weight material, not big and bulky like some down vests. Very warm. Absolutely loves it.
I would recommend this product.

This vest is not your standard unflattering, big, puffy down vest. It fits well and does exactly what Columbia states it will (very warm, wind-resistant) while being stylish and flattering.
I would recommend this product.
