Columbia Benton Springs Vest for Ladies
Fits fine, but fabric not as nice as other vests
I had been in the market for a bright red vest for a while and thought I had finally found one, but I was disappointed when I got mine, so it went back. The fleece was just not as nice and soft as my other Columbia vest that I got about 3 years ago. I can't remember the style name of that vest, but the number S5 WL 1470 is prominent on the inside tag, and the color is called "margarita." If this vest came in other colors, I would buy about three! The Benton Springs "beet" color that I purchased was really more of a muted red or rust color, not the bright reddish purple that I had imagined. Also, who can't resist buying a vest called margarita? Put a shaker of salt and a lime wedge in the pockets, and you've got a winner!

I'm glad I ordered a size smaller than what I actually measured. I'm normally an XL, but the L fits me perfectly. It is snug in all the right places, which is what I was aiming for. Definitely keeps me warm whether it's under a jacket/coat or worn by itself. The quality is excellent and the material is very soft. I got it in black, which appears almost like a muted black (not intense or deep in color), but this does not bother me. I am definitely considering purchasing more!

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