Keep it cozy to the core in the Women's Columbia Catalina Crest Vest. Perfect for cool nights and crisp mornings when a full-on jacket is too much but a thin softshell just won’t cut it. Layer it over a wicking long-sleeve tee for moderated warmth or zip it up over an ultra-comfy turtleneck to take “snuggly" to a whole new level. The narrow chevron stitch pattern creates a flattering, feminine look and the polyester shell is soft to the touch but resists pilling. The high neck and perfect insulation will fend off chills so you can chill outside late into the evening.

Very lightweight
December 27, 2010

This vest is very comfortable and lightweight. I usually order up a size (large instead of medium) but should have ordered my normal size in this vest. Very nice quality.

Great Vest for casual comfort
October 25, 2010

This vest is wonderful and is so comfy. The combo materials make this vest a very versatile one. It can be worn casually for warmth or dress it up with a nicer base layer top and scarf for a more professional or going out look. Love it and am going to get it in as many colors as are available!

Satisfied Purchaser
December 28, 2010

I purchased this for my Wife for Christmass. She has never owned a vest before so I thought I'd get this for her to try. This vest looked to fit nice on the pictures, and with Altrec's return policy this seemed like a no risk purchase. It is the 28th now, and since Christmass she has not missed a day without wearing this. She loves how warm it is, how it looks and as a matter of fact she just suggested that a black one or tan one would be a great addition to her wardrobe so she has a neutral color to match and mix. Another great gift from this site!!!

Great vest!

I wear fleece vests frequently and was hesitant to purchase this one but thrilled with the results! The outer shell is very soft and the whole vest very lightweight and perfect for Southern spring mornings and evenings.

Great fit
May 03, 2011

I have the columbia bently springs fleece vest and didn't like how sloppy it fit. I ordered this vest hoping in would fit a little more form fitting and it does. It is not tight at all. It fits just right and it flattering. I do agree with the other review and wish there were more colors. A black one would go with everything. Very Happy!

Pros: Great design, Cons: Cost
