This is a very versatile vest and is very comfortable. It is a staple in my outdoor clothing items and is a key layering piece for outdoors adventures or everyday excursions. A zip-closed security pocket keeps valuables stashed safely.
I would recommend this product.

Very unhappy with this purchase. My husband wanted a brown vest and as it appeared online, this vest was brown (I ordered the buffalo color). That is not at all the color that came. I thought I received the wrong color, it is definately gray, not brown. Please if you need a brown Columbia vest as I have seen elsewhere, DO NOT buy from here. It is very misleading that the colors are that different from the actual product and the picture they put online.
I do not recommend this product.

Good item at sale price.
Light weight which can be good for Seattle shoulder months (transitional weather) Runs large - I can't remember buying a medium size for my 6' 2" 195 lb frame but I returned the large for a medium on this item.
I would recommend this product.

I have four Columbia vests of different colors. That should tell you what I think of their products. They keep you warm without overheating. They work great for wearing under a coat on those very cold days. The vests allow movement with ease.
I would recommend this product.

Hi
They are very nice - but the size I bought was too big - can I return and get a size smaller on all 3?

I own an older version of this vest. It is an XXL Tall, which is a size I often wear. But it's too roomy and is longer than most of my sport coats. I wear it to bed in the winter, however, as it keeps me warm and my cats like it for cuddling. The construction is excellent and it's worn well.
Based on this positive experience I purchased three new Columbia Cathedral vests. I went for an XL regular, instead. It fits me perfectly (6', 210 lbs) and is just long enough to overhang my tush. Some would say the lack of elastic in the waist lets in the cold. I've found it to fit me fine, however, and it gives just a bit when I'm walking.
I also love the current color choices. The red is especially rich while the sage green is a very warm, deep color. I'm not sure the depth of color comes through on the scans.
That said, the fleece in the new vests is a bit thinner. That makes them lighter but not quite as warm. Fleece weight can be confusing, however. I've found some with a lighter hand subjectively warmer than the heavier versions. Go figure.
I find these new vests especially useful when layering over a River Driver shirt which has a thin layer of cotton and a layer of cotton/wool blend. The overall effect is surprisingly thin, the vest allows for arm movement, and the zipper allows for venting. Amazing function at such a reasonable cost.
Overall, I'm happy with my older "sleeping bag" vest. I isolate its use to the bedroom and it provides much warmth. I'm also very happy with my new vests as they fit better and are quite versatile. I'd recommend them to anyone. But do keep in mind they run just a bit large. I'm sure Columbia can furnish you with exact dimensions prior to purchase.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this vest for my dad. I didn't know which size to pick so I got one in L and the other one in XL. L fits my dad perfectly and XL is way to big but I can give it to my cousin. Not a problem.
This vest is a little bit thin than I expected, but as long as it can keep my dad warm, I am happy with it.
I would recommend this product.

I got it one third off at the end of the season, so it was a good value for me. The material is a little lighter weight than the other vest I had and it runs a little long on me, down past my hips. Otherwise I'm happy with it.
I would recommend this product.

Im a college student and I bought this to keep me warm when it was to warm to wear a fleece jacket but too cold to wear just a t shirt and it works great. My only complaint is that it the fabric is starting to mess up where my back pack rubs my lower back.
I would recommend this product.

The lighter gray is more of a light brown than a gray. So just know this before purchase. But it fits perfect and looks good just not the color i was expecting.

I purchased 3 of these vests for my husband and kids for Christmas. I thought I was getting a great deal because they were on sale for half off. The quality of the vest is so poor. The fleece is so paper thin you can almost see right through it and it is not lined with anything at all. Nothing like the fleece vest I purchase from Columbia 5 years ago. I would not recommend this vest.
I do not recommend this product.
