Active Wardrobe Staple
February 18, 2011
This was a gift for my boyfriend over the holidays. He wears this vest to the gym, believe it or not! He likes to keep his core warm and his arms uncovered (he wears a short sleeve shirt underneath). Also, the pockets are a feature he has to have. The fit was perfect - he is a little heavier around the waist right now, and 5'8. His others have fit him in a Large so I had hoped the same would be true here - and it was true. This vest is of good quality and I love the texture (soft, not rough like some). He loves the vest and wears it often! I am very happy with the quality that we received for the price that was paid.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Great value
A great gift
January 06, 2011
I bought a jacket as a gift to my father. He is very happy. The vest is comfortable and very warm. Columbia did not disappoint.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use
January 23, 2011
We purchased this vest for my wife's dad (ok, my father-in-law). He has a couple of older vests, which he likes, but he was impressed with this vest from the time he took it out of the package. He says it is very warm and fits great. We ordered a second one for him.Pros: Build quality, Performance
May 19, 2011
Great Vest -- fits good, looks good, is good Love it -- Great buy for the money The only small thing I'd note is there is no "Inner pocket" -- could have been a nice addition
January 13, 2012
It was a good change to buy this great product with reasonale price. I always try to find big size one. altrec helps me!!! My father likes columbia gears but sometimes it is expensive for me. but I can find his favorite sytle after altrec's pre-notice e-mail and promotion. Thank you!!!Pros: Great design, Ease of use, Great value
December 17, 2009
This vest is an excellent value compared to the other brands, I am a big Columbia fan. I only wish that it had a drawcord at the waist to tighten the bottom of the vest.
January 02, 2010
The Columbia fleece vest is quality at an affordable price. I purchased one in the "Tusk" color for my dad for Christmas 2009 and he loves it. Highly recommended!
December 03, 2012
It is a very nice item I bought one for myself and my brother, there both stylish and versatile to actually keep me warm instead of for just the look. I recommend to everyone to have one of these in closet for a day outside with a nice button down underneath.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: Wears quickly
January 13, 2010
Great basic fleece at a fantastic price. Nothing special, but looks nice and fits well.
September 13, 2010
It's Columbia; nuff said. High quality; perfect fit; color true to Web image. Got it yesterday; wore it today.
Great look !
March 01, 2010
Very easy to order and love the choice of colors. The price was nice and looking to order more in the future.
June 02, 2010
Stay away from Columbia Cathedral Peak Vests. There is a good color selection but the quality is poor. The material is thin, the collar is not tailored well, the fit was poor and oh yes the zipper was sticky right out of the bag. I am not a hardcore outdoor person- just like to wear a good vest which I do most of the winter.
I purchased ten (10) Fleece Vests from Columbia for XMas.
December 21, 2009
I have used Columbia Gear/Clothing for over 35 years, the majority in the outdoors as a Professional Fly Fishing Guide and Instructor. These vests are lightweight and comfortable at exceptionally low prices. I sent nine vest to Texas and perfect for when the temp dips a bit. All but one in my family is getting these fleece vests from Columbia, including myself. They are roughly 150 weight, as fleece is measured. They fit larger than expected in the men's sizes. Superb confort gifts.
Excellent fit and color.
March 22, 2010
The "dirt" color is much nicer than pictured, and the fit is superb. I docked a star for two reasons: 1) the collar seems too large when you wear it up, and 2) the zippers on the pockets "ring" like little bells when you walk - no noticeable until you walk into a quiet room.
January 04, 2010
This vest was too thin for what I needed it for so I returned it.
Great product- great price
January 02, 2010
The vest looks and fits great. The Website makes it easy to pick color and size. I got free shipping- a great shopping experience.
columbia has the best selection of colors
December 28, 2009
i ordered this for my bubbe for christmas - she loves bright colors and Columbia had the best selection of colors by far. the quality was excellent.
Very satisfied with this vest
February 09, 2008
A light weight very attractive vest. I plan to order another one.
Very comfortable and versatile
June 29, 2010
I wear these vests to work nearly every day. They keep me warm and give the look and feel of a slightly more formal manner of dress, even when worn with jeans. Great garment.
A very nice item for the cool weather...definitely good quality!
October 28, 2009
I think this vest will work well for fall, winter and spring weather. I can wear it with different color shirts underneath, and the pockets are great for anyone with kids and never enough places to put stuff!
August 29, 2012
nice, affordable vest by a well known brand. there are a couple flaws though, maybe because either i am a little smaller or because the vest is a little larger. either way i like itPros: Great value, warm, Cons: cheap zipper, runs a little larger, waistline is big
January 09, 2011
I bought two, tusk and Columbia blue, my sons for Christmas present . They loved them. The vests are light, good quality and fit great. Colours are better than in picture and zippers run well. My husband also liked, so I will buy one to him soon.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
Great product! Check the size chart - it's right on
June 28, 2009
I usually wear an xl, but the size chart said lg for a 42-44 chest. I was worried it would be small, but it is perfect. I wear it to bike in the early morning, and am thinking of buying several more so I dont have to wash so often!
Good all-purpose wear item.
September 03, 2009
I love this fleece vest from Columbia. The price is very reasonable. It is perfect for all seasons and looks just as great with jeans, shorts, khakis or slacks. It can take the chill out of too efficient air conditioning in the Summer, or fit well for layering warmth under a Winter coat. With the many color choices you can mix and match with numerous other items. They are soft and also durable.
August 17, 2009
A roomy vest with zipper-pockets and great colors, not to mention the price. Excellent deal!
January 05, 2012
I love the color and the light-weight softness of this vest, just a warning that it runs a little big. Not much more to say. Its a great buy and one of the most useful pieces of clothing for any temperate climate.Pros: Build quality, Great value
September 26, 2011
I think its a great quality product. Its comfortable and fits great. It might not be too warm for winter but a great item for weather between 45 to 65.
Great product-great website-great service
December 23, 2009
I buy a lot of things online. I like simplicity-good products with name brands I recognize and quick and reasonable shipping. Your Company provides all...and my shipping was free and I received the product within a few days-not weeks later-Thank you!
June 03, 2010
Great vest, versatile style, comfortable with a true fit
I ordered three. Great product, great price.
September 06, 2010
I wear them to my grandson's hockey games. These vests are warm but not bulky.
January 21, 2012
Overall, it's very good. After using this products, it is easy for me to fit perfectly. In spite of low price respectly, these products are so good. In color, durability, quaulity, I recoomend this brand. Thank you.
May 01, 2011
Bought 2 more of these for my husband because he was always wearing the only one he had. He loves these! They are just enough warmth for a cool day without getting too hot. Stylish enough to wear with jeans or khakies.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Good quality...thin fleece material...you get what you paid for.
February 05, 2010
This vest is not the quality you would expect from Columbia Sportswear.The fleece is soft yet thin.It is well put together...but does not say quality...durability synonymous with Columbia products.Never the less it meets with my requirements for now.If you are looking for a light vest to wear in a slightly heated workplace or at night while on a camping trip say...this vest will suit you just fine.
Great Vest, good quality, lasts forever.
December 24, 2009
I am very happy with this product. The only problem I have is that i would normally take a medium, but with this one I need to wear a Small. being between sizes is like that.
October 31, 2009
This vest is a very good buy. Quality wise, this vest is just as good if not better than the more expensive brands. I would recommend this a must buy for the price.
December 17, 2009
I bought this for my dad. He loves vests because they're great for those 40 degree days. He absolutely loves this vest! I may have to get my mom a matching one in her size....
wear it all the time
June 01, 2009
I am very pleases with the quality of the product. Biggest negative is that I found an outlet store selling the vest in a limited color selection for $5 less, but included the tax factor I paid $3.40 more at Altec but got the color I wanted
December 30, 2011
I was so excited to have found a vest my father could wear around his cold house. It is the perfect color and very soft. I assume it would be warm. The vest is so short up his back that he couldn't stay warm in this. I may try the next size but that may only change the around the body not the height of the body.Pros: Great value, Cons: Bad design
columbia quality item
December 24, 2012
the vest fits very good, the color is nice, no bright like i like, and keep the color after wash and wash, the quality fabric is exelent and warm, very light weight that make you feel that don't are using. the zipers in pockets make you keep your stuff safe.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
Very nice vest!
November 18, 2008
I love this vest. It is not too heavy, not too tight and not too short. I bought for my husband, my son, my sister, my mother and myself.
Great piece of gear!
January 11, 2010
I love the fleece vest as a keep warm accessory. My only negative on this is I wish the collar were a bit smaller, and the vet was a bit more fitted. But for the money, it's a very functional piece of clothing.
March 05, 2010
Love mine...I now have five different colors!! Only knock is that the collar is a bit high
Excellent value and color choices
November 23, 2009
I have been buying Columbia Men's vest for years and still wear my original vest
March 01, 2012
i've tried multiple vests, and besides being very comfortable, i think my favorite feature is that the collar will fold down. many other vests will curl up, but not this one. i will get more colors soon, just wish they offered a chest pocket. would make it easier to excercise in. i really do like this vest....joePros: Performance, Great value
April 25, 2010
There are vests that are definitely better for hard core outdoor activities, but for the price that you pay this is a fantastic buy! Its thin and light, but does warm you up nicely. Something to have with you in your car or when you travel. No extras, but good, solid quality.
September 21, 2009
fits great! Good warm look,
November 10, 2009
I love all my columbia clothing - this one is as good. Remember that this item runs one size larger. I am a medium, small size in this item fits me perfect!
High quality fleece
January 06, 2010
Very happy with quality and the way this vest holds its shape. Will buy again.
December 30, 2011
Great fit, good quality, and great price. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a great way to stay warm in fall or winter weather conditions.Pros: Great value
December 26, 2012
This was a gift for my Husband. He loved it, very warm, comfortable fabric. Fits a little bit bigger than expected but a great gift. Very fast shipping, product as described.Pros: Great value
October 30, 2010
I wear this vest at the office in the winter. It's thin and light and provides the right amount of warmth when I'm working on the computer. I have run it through the washer/dryer many times and it still looked the same. It doesn't stand up to the elements like the higher quality fleeces but it's a good value.Pros: Great value
December 03, 2011
Vest is just what I wanted in black. It's cold here in New England and I appreciate the warmth. Competitive price. Columbia is a brand you can count on.Pros: Build quality, Great value
Nice, but Average
January 03, 2013
I own a couple of these vests. They are fairly lightweight and are not the same quality Columbia offers in retail stores. This particular vest is fine to use as a lightweight layer or outside a sport shirt if you wear it to an office or out for the evening. I wish Columbia would offer these vests in 200 weight Polartec.
March 03, 2011
It is my first vest. I need a vest to play golf or camping in windy, chilly day. It is a suitable vest what I thought. And the price is better than the other bran vest.Pros: Great design, Ease of use, Great value
Great gift for small price
January 05, 2011
I bought this vest for my father for Christmas and he loves it. It fits well, isn't restricting of movement but gives warmth on cooler days. He is wearing it quite alot in and out of the house!Pros: Build quality, Performance, Great value
Great lightweight vest.
March 05, 2010
Love both vests I purchased. Very well made, comfortable and stylish. Glad I ordered two of them, one of which will be going to my brother-in-law on his birthday.
Lite,Warm,Large Pockets- Great Vest
June 11, 2009
Lite,Warm,Large Pockets- Great all year Vest.
Great price very happy with item
May 05, 2010
Great quality for a great price. You won't even know you are wearing it.
Just as the heading says,
June 19, 2009
This vest is great. Comfortable fit, looks good, does just what a vest should do. Loved the price and quality! Will get more colors as can't live without it!!
January 01, 2008
It's not a high-performance vest, but it's great-looking and functional.
Nice, but Average

January 28, 2010
Real warm and great quality.
Decent for the price..
May 25, 2010
pros: Lightweight, warm, nice feel, really quick shipping. cons: neck too long, a drawstring at the waist would be great. Overall a good product. will probably buy one more:)
Great vest ... great value
September 16, 2011
I just received the cathedral vest and I love it! I'm a smaller guy and sometimes it is hard to find a vest that doesn't feel huge and baggy. This vest fits great! The material is very comfortable and the construction is sound. I also really like the Navy color! It isn't too bright and is more versatile that I was expecting. I would recommend this vest! I will probably look to purchase another one in the near future!
Exactly what I was looking for
November 07, 2011
Purchased this as a gift. I was looking for a vest with good clean looks and something that could be worn as an extra layer - for everyday indoor wear and outdoor wear under a coat. Fit was perfect, looked handsome on, a great buy, and shipping was very prompt.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, fit
Columbia Fleece Vest
October 18, 2012
Exactly what I was looking for and your prices are absoltely great! I have your website bookmarked on my Favorite's List and will be returning again to do more shopping. I would recommend your company to anyone who is looking for the decent prices and great customer service, along with lightening fast S/H too.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
As advertised...predictable, reliable.
January 09, 2013
As advertised...predictable, reliable. Colors as expected. Arrived on time. Seemed a little on the pricey side, but that may be because we caught a fleece vest on sale last year before Christmas.
January 18, 2012
Just as described! Price was great. The vest fits my needs to a t ! I received the product very quickly and I'm completely satisfied. Look forward to my next purchase.
Great vest and service.
July 15, 2009
An excellent vest!!!
May 07, 2009
I really like this vest. Lightweight, feels great and the one thing I was looking for was "zippered pockets". I didn't want just a hand warmer insert and this vest has two great pockets with zippers. Great price for a fleece vest!
good light weight layer
January 05, 2011
This vest was lighter weight than anticipated. Thin fleece layer not consistent with Columbia's usual quality.Pros: Great value, Cons: Wears quickly, Poor quality
Great Find for the Price
December 26, 2010
I was MOSTLY satisfied with this item, as it was true to form and fit -- and the right price! But I suppose something a bit more elaborate or expensive would warm better; this occasionally did not help cut the cold in chillier climates. Overall, though, I would recommend.Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: not as warm as others
My brother loves it
December 28, 2010
I bought 2 cathedral peak vests for my brother for Christmas. He really loves them. He uses it everyday going to work, fishing boating and all year long. He told me these are the best vests ever. He has had them before and it was time to get new ones. His old ones were looking old from so much use every day. Keep making them. Thanks Altrec!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
my brother loves this
February 26, 2011
I purchased this vest for my brother. He wears it for both his private and work. He says its warm enough and he doesn't need any inner clothes such as sweater. Just wearing this and a shirt makes him comfortable both in house and office. As I expected it a bit larger, so I bought one size smaller and that was the right size. When I saw him in the vest, he looked cool enough and felt I bought the right stuff for him.Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Another great Columbia product
April 21, 2010
I had purchased a Cathedral Peak vest months ago in a light color. It was very satisfactory so when I saw it on sale, I ordered its mate in black. They pack light and are great with a windbreaker for winter travel.
the vest was perfect
December 21, 2008
I bought this for my husband who is a crane operater on the night shift and he said this vest was absolutely perfect. Not to heavy or bulky
December 23, 2009
I ordered 12 Columbia vests for my office staff. The vests are lightweight and can be worn around the office. Love the color choices as well.
Comfortable, stylish, just the right fit and look
January 19, 2010
So easy to order, free shipping, and the online information helped me pick out the perfect items! And when an item turned out to be unavailable, the customer service I received was "over the top" helpful!
March 12, 2010
Its thin and fits perfect. Great quality. Exactly what I was looking for.
Great price for a quality vest
March 17, 2009
Excellent value. Columbia products are one of my few brand loyalties. The usual Columbia standards of design and materials are met.
Probably will meet desired use.
October 27, 2009
I use a vest as a layer under a ski parka in place of a sweater. The real test will be in its use. Fit seems fine. size is right.
