Love it, too much.

I found myself looking at this vest in the store and walked away from it due to the price. It stayed on my mind and I'll be honest I looked at it a few times online, got made fun of for doing so by the girl friend, and was later convinced (by the girlfriend) to just save up buy it and stop pining over it.

So glad I did.

Great fit, the zippered pockets are awesome, breaths well in hot weather and packs easy if it gets too hot. The UV rating is very nice. It's been used in hot and chilly hikes in Arizona and to storm a few parties. A very fun and versatile item of clothing.

It's an all around awesome vest I couldn't be more happy with. Though while wearing it I feel like I should become more knowledgeable about all things wild and maybe explore a few ancient runes...ADVENTURE!

Put this vest on and you look and feel awesome. Just ask someone to touch you and they will agree--awesome. There are so...many...pockets! There are pockets hidden by pockets with pockets on top. This is a TSA nightmare, but great storage solution for you. The pictures DO NOT do it justice. I love this vest. It fits great and my wife's eyes twinkle when she sees me in it. The ventilation is unmatched by any other vest I have ever tried. Now, I can wear a vest to work and not sweat to death since my boss is a stickler with the AC.

I am REALLY rough on clothes, and Columbia did a great job with durability.

It packs small too.

I would buy another one, but this one will last me too long.

I have now used this product for many months and it has held up great. Just suffered a bit of sunburn from a day at the water park. Pop this thing on and you don't even feel the sun even when hiking in full sun. Breaths great, packs small, resists snags and tears.

All the zippered pockets are very nice for those who like to climb trees, scramble up rocks and roll around.

Great vest!

I use my vest almost every day to conceal a pistol. Good pocket arrangement without looking too "tactical". Lightweight and strong. Washes well. Most of the stuff I get from Columbia is of good quality and this vest is no exception. Reasonably priced, too. My only complaint is it could use one more inside pocket. This is a warm (not hot) or fall weather vest.

The Vest of Impirtance

I took 4 teen grandchildren on an African Safari Aug. 2013. It was a tour, but I was responsible for 5 passports, money and credit cards, extra insect wipes, hand wipes, tour documents & schedules, Kleenex, etc. It all fit into my vest and was nicknamed by my grands as The Vest of Importance. Best clothes buy I made for this trip.

Silver Ridge Vest

Very useful item for every day wear. It's light weight and breathable for layering even indoors and the varied pockets are extremely handy. I think the only thing I might add would be a lumbar pocket (like a fishing vest)and change the upper interior mesh pockets to seal-able fabric pockets preferably zipper not Velcro or perhaps buttoned.
kevharde at REI on 04/04/2013

Exactly what I was looking for

Lightweight, breathable and water repellent. Has lots of zippered pockets inside and out. Fabric appears to be durable and looks sharp. Will be great for travel as its small enough to pack efficiently. I'll wear this for both everyday wear and for hiking, etc.

Columbia Silver Ridge Vest

I purchased primarily for base camping and hiking / backpacking but I have ended up using the vest as casual wear to work and all around town. This is a great vest with plenty of pockets to store stuff
Gary the Scout at REI on 02/02/2013

Nice & functional vest

Comfortable and functional vest. I wore it three weeks while in Africa. The only problem I had was one of the front snaps fell off.

Versitale for Warm Weather

Overall versatile for hiking, fishing or for an extra light layer when needed. Columbia quality is finely displayed with this vest.

A little disappointed

I like Columbia sportswear and have several vests, jackets etc and several pairs of shoes/boots. I ordered this vest sight unseen with the expectation of the excellent quality I have come to expect from Columbia, and frankly, it fell short. It feels cheap and fits a little small. I will wear it, however, it is inferior in quality to other Columbia gear I have purchased.
