Reviews for Amazon Essentials Men's Full-Zip Polar Fleece Vest
People say Amazon Essentials is really similar to Columbia.
I usually buy Columbia but they ran out of fleece vests my size. This vest’s material is a little thinner than Columbia, but still a nice quality.
Just as good as the cheaper Columbia vest
Fit was great. Just a slightly longer than I’d prefer, but I’m 5’9 with a shorter torso so almost all vests are on me. I bout a medium and weigh about 160lb fyi
I have had this style of vest for years, Columbia. Zipper pockets lightweight and warm. I was thrilled to find the quality of the Amazon vest as high and for the price it was beyond expectations. Very happy
Really great value. I wear it around the office and it looks just as nice as the Columbia vests that others are wearing. Very happy
Great for the price.
This is a great layering piece vest when the temperature isn’t quite cold enough for your coat, but a little chilly for a long sleeved shirt. Excellent fit. Not as thick a material as a Columbia brand fleece vest, but half the price and very comfortable.
Quality and price more than worth it!
Awesome! Quality better than last Columbia vest I bought. I’m getting more.
Not just for guys! Better than AE or Columbia's Womens Vests!
I'm a woman and have ordered 8 of these vests for myself. I prefer buying men's fleece items as, in most cases, the fleece used in womens clothing is thinner and the length is too short. I want my core warm and have my bottom covered (hello, it's cold out, that's why I'm wearing fleece!). I want deeper pockets (and, a variety of color choices is a nice bonus). I bought these vests in size small (I weigh 118 lbs). My bust, at its fullest, is 37" and I can wear a heavy weight sweater under these without feeling smothered. The neck stands up enough to keep my neck warm, even without a scarf. And, with a scarf, it folds down nicely to give the appearance of slight lapels in the front. Length is great, I'm 5'2" and the vests cover my bottom. Terrific deep outer and inner pockets (outer pockets zip). All are roomy/deep enough to comfortably hold my phone (3.25"x6.1" in an Otterbox case). I expect I'll keep ordering these as new colors appear. Our winter temps drop below zero regularly and we get lots of snow. With a sweater underneath, these vests are great for walking on sunny, way-below-freezing (10°) days. Missed out on buying one when they still offered them in bright red. PLEASE, bring back the RED!
Pretty Good Item
Good price for the quality. Little more snug around the chest than my Columbia vest of the same type.
Low cost, decent product
Styling is nice. Construction, seams,pockets stitching and zipper are all quite fine. The main difference compared to pricier items from Columbia, Lands End etc is the fabric. Fleece is thinner and less deluxe but still decent. If this vest proves reasonably durable I'll consider it a good purchase. I got my money's worth or more.
...Good Bang For The Buck!
...I've only had this vest for 5 days now, but have worn it over a flannel plaid shirt, and it keeps my core nice and warm even in temps near freezing. It's warm and soft, and a great bargain compared to a similar item from Columbia. This vest has nice large zip-slash pockets to keep your hands warm, and two interior pockets that are also good-sized. This vest makes a great addition to layering for warmth and the zip-front makes it easy to control the amount of heat while being active. At this point, I would recommend this Amazon Basics item for anyone who spends time outdoors in cold weather...
