Great light vest for travel
I bought this vest for my husband. He tried and it looked good on him. Great travel vest and it looks nice. He was looking for a travel vest for a while, this vest is not too bulky.

Quality and value from Columbia (again!)
I have used several lightweight walking vests over the years, but this one is the best. Very solid construction, wind resistant and breathable. High SPF sun block. Useful selection of pockets with good closures makes it ideal for helping to transport small photography accessories, for example. Chosen colour looks smart.

Very utilitarian yet stylish
This is a great looking vest that is also fully functional. Many pockets to handle whatever life brings at you. Only request I have is for a dedicated exterior pen sleeve/pocket for easy access. Otherwise, it's well thought out and designed!

Excellent bit of kit
I was looking for a lightweight summer vest to carry my bits and bobs (camera, phone, glasses, etc) when out and about and this ticked all the boxes.
I've been wearing it for a few weeks now and have to say that I'm very pleased. It's comfortable to wear, doesn't make me feel warm, and has enough pockets for what I need.

A couple of suggestions for functional improvement
The vest is long and would benefit from a 2 way zipper up and down.
The inside pockets are great for a photographic lens or water bottle. A button or fastener 1/2 way across the top of the inside pocket would help distribute the weight in the pocket better and secure the item from falling out, when it it taken off and folded . Otherwise it is well designed and quite functional. the weight is perfect. More when I get back from a 10 day trip to Ethiopia

Lightweight and cool; especially important qualities here in Texas. Excellent fit. Performs very well in the activity for which I purchased it. This is my second one and I intend to buy another in a different color. I highly recommend this product.
