I wear these vests every day, and this winter went through three of them due to zipper failure. The plastic zipper is sewn to the backing with very small gauge polyester thread which does not wear well. The zipper will eventually separate from the backing, making the vest useless. I checked with my tailor about replacing the zipper and was told it would cost more than the vest does, new. Unfortunately Columbia and all stores I can find on-line are out of stock at this time of year (late winter, early spring). I would expect sportswear of this type to last more than a few month's use!!
I do not recommend this product.

Too expensive for such a flimsy fleece. Runs a bit large, but appears to be made well and oftens some warmth. I've been using it as a layer under my jacket when outside shoveling snow, etc. Also, wearing it over short-sleeved shirt when dressing casually.
I do not recommend this product.

I needed a good quality fleece vest, and this one fits that bill. Very well made. Fit is accurate and comfortable. It is warm and easy to layer when needed.
I would recommend this product.

This product functions great. I use it to play golf in and the vest makes it easy to swing a club in while staying warm on cool mornings.

I bought the "same" vest some years ago... the recent purchase is not as well-made nor as thick material as the earlier version... you have cheapened the product....
Shame on you!!!

I have enjoyed this vest so much that I ordered another today. I had looked everywhere for a vest to wear in moderate temperatures. This it it. In the South we don't need a heavy outer wear very often. I would like to find a vest that is water repellent.

Purchased this for my hubby's Christmas gift. He likes it. He has another one from several years ago. This one seems slightly smaller around and the material slightly thinner is why I didn't rate it as excellent. Prefer the quality of the older model.

In the past I have purchased similar items from other stores - in fact I recently sent the same item back to another store because of the workmanship. There was no comparison when I received my vest from Columbia. the attention to detail was worth every penny I paid.
