the material is light weight, and very soft, and isn't super puffy so it fits under my coat. It's also nice and warm, and is a lovely color.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this for snowboarding in the springtime. Haven't tested it out as a snowboard vest but I have been wearing it around the house as the temps start to drop. It's very comfortable
I love the hidden chest zip pocket. That will be handy when I wear it snowboarding.
The length is good too. It's shorter in the front than in the back which I like. I hate it when jackets/vests don't cover the small of your back when bend over.
I got the purple (Quill) color and I like it cause it's a deep purple - not too bright.
I did say it was a little on the small side. I think it's cause the material doesn't have any give. If you are between sizes like I am (between 1x & 2x) go for the larger size.
I would recommend this product.

After I bought my Columbia Omni Heat jacket, I knew my Mom would also love this wonderful heat-preserving technology, so I bought her the vest. She is delighted by the Omni Heat technology, which keeps her nice and warm. I also know that Columbia products are always of excellent quality and worth the price, and I love to support Oregon businesses as well. Thank you for your excellent products and great company!
I would recommend this product.

The style and color are not great. The red hibiscus color was more of a bright orange. I was disappointed that it didn't have more of a fitted cut - like the website image suggested. It hangs straight down without any curve at the waste.
The red hibiscus vest could double as a life jacket.
I do not recommend this product.

Great color! Lightweight. I normally wear an xl top so I went up one size to a 1x to be safe since reviews indicated it runs small. It fits perfectly! You won't be disappointed!

I normally shy away from vests mainly because I feel like I look like I'm a walking hand grenade, but this vest is built thin, yet does the job! It's light and the reflective tech does the job without making me overheated. While I'm usually a 1X, I ordered a size up in case I wear something a little bulky, and the sizing was fine. The collar is a nice width for turning up or laying flat. Another thing I've noticed is with other down-type clothes, I build up a static charge that shocks me when I remove it, but this vest doesn't seem to do that. Until it gets colder outside, I'm wearing it mostly indoors as the temps chill down. This vest is an excellent addition to my wardrobe!
I would recommend this product.

This is my second vest. I love this product. It is lightweight and durable. I wear it with everything. It is great in fall and spring as the only layer I need to wear to keep warm when outside. In the winter it is excellent layer to keep warm without bulk.
I highly recommend this product. I have encouraged my friends to get one and many have. Everyone comments about its utility and warmth. Enjoy
I would recommend this product.

The Active fit improves the aesthetics of the vest, but if your waist and hips are larger, you may find you need to buy up a size and then you will have access room and larger than necessary arm holes. Not a problem unless the wind is blowing.
I LOVE Patagonia Nano Puff (PNP), but with no Plus sizes you have to by the men's version. The Columbia vest is much nicer looking and fits better. Seems to be as warm as the PNP, but not as thin (critical when layering under my waders and rain shell).
I would recommend this product.
