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.

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 was unsure at first if I was a medium or a small but I took the chance on the small because that would typically be my size for a vest. It ended up being the perfect choice. It is very warm and I would recommend it to anyone. It can be worn as is, under a jacket for extra warmth, or even with a business dress shirt and it has a nice look with any of them.
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.

Luckily I now work in a casual-dress office in a building that's over 100 yrs old. I bought two and I keep one there full-time. As the temp drop (and varies widely), this has been great to throw on. I bought the gray so it goes with everything.
Spend the few extra bucks on a brand like this. You'll like functionality and appreciate the look.
I would recommend this product.

The vest I received was a large which is slightly smaller than my old Columbia vest. I ordered five different colors and monogrammed them and when I received them back from the embroiderer I noticed that it was smaller than the original vest that I had.
I would recommend this product.

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 recently purchased three Cathedral Peak II vests in various colors having owned fleece vests from Columbia for several years. I have always been very pleased with Columbia vest products. However I was very dissatisfied with the quality of my recent purchase - the vests were "paper-thin" and as such had a very cheap feel to them. I promptly returned all three vests. I expected a better quality of vest for the money. On a positive note the customer service staff was very helpful and emailed me a shipping label for returning the product.
I do not recommend this product.
