Fits true to size, 6'4" / 272 and it fit is very comfortably large. Great transition piece from very brisk Northern Ohio fall mornings to cool day time. This is my third over the years and have loved each one.
I would recommend this product.

This vest is perfect for what I need on cool spring mornings or when I leave work late in the evening. The vest is very thin and lightweight which is perfect since a heavier jacket would be to warm to wear on a cool morning. I use it pretty much everyday.
My only suggestion/wish would be if Colombia would design a fleece with removable sleeves. As there are times when the day starts off on the cold side but by the afternoon, it's warmed up and a long sleeved fleece is not warranted.
I would recommend this product.

We love Columbia products and were eager to receive this order for an upcoming trip. Disappointment set in, once my husband tried on the vest. The color was great, quality of the materials as well, but the fit was wrong. My husband is 6' 7" and needs to get clothing labeled "tall", which normally indicates that the length is longer. The vest was short and wide. If you need a "tall" I would not recommended this vest or any other shirts or sweatshirts because it is not true to size
I do not recommend this product.

Any time I have purchased any columbia product it has been great,this is no exception. This vest is one of the only vests I could find that will accomodate a person with a long torseau. It is warm but thin enough to wear under another jacket if need be.
I would recommend this product.

Both my husband and I love Columbia products - they are great quality and last a long time, even with regular use. The Men's Cathedral Peak Vest is no different, however, the one issue with this vest is that it seemed to run a bit short in length, even after ordering a tall size. The overall size was not the issue, but the length could have been another 2-3 inches for it to fit perfectly.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this for my husband. He wears a 3XL, so it is a challenge to find him nice clothes that are not expensive. I was excited to find this vest in his size. Then when we received the vest, I have to say that I was disappointed. The vest is very thin. There is no draw string at the bottom, so it just kind of drapes over his large belly and hangs there. We will not return the vest since it does fit, it just doesn't look that great on him. Sadly, it just looks kind of cheap. Everything else Columbia we've ever bought has been of good quality. I think that made this purchase all the more disappointing.
I do not recommend this product.

If it fits I'm sure the quality and function would be very good. I am only 6'3" long in the torso and this "Tall" item comes nowhere near fitting properly.

I'd been trying to find a big & tall fleece vest for some time. There is so much inconsistency in sizing these days. This vest fit well without being too long (typical of many "tall" sizes).

I'm not your average size guy, at 6'4" it is very hard to find quality anything that fits well. Columbia offers Big&Tall sizes unlike almost every other big name clothing mfg. Comes with zippered pockets which are a nice touch. I probably wear this vest too much but it is comfortable in almost any weather.

I really like the vest, but I ordered the tall size in extra large, and although it is the length I need, it is too big around. Will probably order another, but just get the tall in the large size

My husband asked forvests for Christmas. After Christmas we went to your site on the computer and saw that you make the vest that he wears every day and loves it. He opted to sed back the vests from another company because your vest fit better, wear longer and are most comfortable than any of the other brands.

I bought the vest after having the same item with sleeves. Very disappointed that the vest did not have the same draw string at the bottom of the garment. I'll keep but see if I can find a way to add some elastic in some way

I enjoy wearing this jacket with a light long sleeve shirt or even a tshirt on cool days. It's not for colder days but might work with proper layering. I'm satisfied with the purchase.

Soft & comfortable fleece vest, great for wearing on it's own inside, or underneath a jacket as an additional layer. Neck is large enough even when zipped up that it doesn't irritate, which is great!
