Columbia Benton Springs Vest for Ladies
This is the third vest I've purchased
I love this vest and in fact, I purchased this for my mom who was using mine. She actually likes to wear it around the house in the winter and then uses it to go out in the cool days of fall. There are no sleeves to get in the way of her work, but it keeps her shoulders warm.
The only issues I have with this vest is that it is hard to find. For some reason no store in my area that sells Columbia was carrying them this year or maybe they were out by late January when I wanted one. Also, ordering was more expensive than buying it in the store.
Also, why don't you offer petites for shorter women? My mom is 5' 1" tall and the vest is a tad long.

Think about ordering two sizes down...
I really like this vest for 3-season wear over a long or short sleeved T in central NC, and under a light jacket in winter. Great colors, really soft. Wish it were a little longer (or scooped) and had a "princess seam fitting," for a more feminine, not tight, fit. The Medium I ordered had 4 inches extra to grab down the sides (I'm a 38 chest) so I reordered two sizes down figuring on an extra 3-4 inches---It's cut very wide and boxy, and has about 1/2 inch stretch to it, so consider that when ordering: what you wear it over and what fit you like. The price/quality are good, so I will make a little compromise in the style and just order smaller.

Just what I wanted!
I bought one of these vests in a large for myself and one in a extra small for my mother. We both love the fit. They aren't bulky and fit a female form very attractively. Although not very thick ,still a perfect warmth layer both for outdoors and in the house. I'm going to get more. And the color ( blue,and one in tropical pink) was pretty.

Perfect running vest
I use this vest to run in and it keeps me warm though out the run!
