Fall-to-spring comfort.

The Columbia Women's Benton Springs Hooded Fleece Vest feels fantastic over a long-sleeve shirt for autumn hikes and under your ski shell in winter. Its super soft fleece offers midweight core warmth, and it helps with moisture management and dries quickly. Both hand pockets have sleek zippers for security.

Love it, Right price

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

For the price this is a great vest. I'm 5'9 and it covers my butt, which is what I like. It's not a flimsy fleece either, like you get at a department store. I really love it when the weather is above 40 for hikes!! Would love to have it offered in more colors. But grey goes with alot. Totally satisfied with this purchase!

Great for layering and very flattering!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

  • Size Bought: XS

Finally, someone's made a fitted fleece vest with a hood!!! I am usually a small, but sizes seem to run larger nowadays. I bought both the XS and S to try, and it turns out the XS fit perfectly. I'm 5'2" and 123 lbs. I have a small chest and am more hippy (chest 34"/waist 28"/hips 37"). The XS has room to layer, has a flattering shape, and the length is just right. Two small complaints: 1) The pockets are only as wide as the princess seam to the zipper. That means, for the XS, the pockets are only 4 1/2" wide, so my hands *just* fit inside (= exposed wrists). 2) I wish there was a zipper garage. The collar is a little high, which I like, so the zipper hits my face and can be cold to the touch. Overall, lovin' it!

Nice for the winter

A good vest with hoodie. A bit wide at the shoulders but the length is just right.
