Reviewed by girltime from Knoxville tn on Monday, December 9, 2013great price, great shade of black, can wear year round
Reviewed by Citybiker23 from Chicago,Il on Thursday, October 17, 2013This vest would be ideal if I was a bit longer in the torso(I'm 5' tall) and a smidge thinner( I ordered a small) otherwise it is exactly what I wanted!
Reviewed by lford from Texas on Tuesday, October 15, 2013This is a great alternative to the puffy and fleece vests. the fabric is smooth like soft canvas, and is thin, but very sturdy. It molds to the body a little closer than most other vests, which creates a slim silhouette. Because of that, it would be easy to layer under a jacket. The fabric is a dense enough weave to feel protective from wind and light rain. The collar can lay down flat or pull up snug around the neck. I expect to be wearing this a lot.
Reviewed by AZ Gramma from NE California on Wednesday, September 25, 2013Great lite weight vest that helps keep you warm too! Nice fit and good length. I will wear it a lot.

“Im looking for a warm, soft vest of this style. I know recent buyers have commented this vest is lightweight (which is good) but I was also wondering if it keeps you warm enough with, maybe, a long sleeve shirt underneath?”

“Several reviewers mentioned it is a thin, light-weight vest (which is good). I'm wondering if it is at all translucent, especially the white. If I wear a colored shirt with the white vest, will the color show through?”
The Columbia Sportswear Arch Cape Vest will not be translucent in most of the colors, the white maybe depending on the color of your undershirt.
no ,it's not that thin.
I only have the black one, but the material is heavy enough that I don't think your shirt color would show through.
