Rated 4 out of 5 by redjim Well made. Ideal for children
The LLBean rep and I discussed getting a fishing vest for a friend of mine who is a tiny woman. We finally decided on the 14 - 18. It turns out to have been too small and I shall return it -- unused. The rep did her best and so did I but I am going to have to go to a larger size.

Our 6yr old grandson is going to attend a beginners fishing camp this spring and what better way for him to be outfitted than with
an LL Bean original vest.He absolutely loves it!..and so do we.
This vest will definitely last until he grows out of it..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mollie72 Fishing Trip Successful!
We sent this to our grandson for his birthday, and got an immediate and enthusiastic thank-you! He is an avid, and successful, fisherman, and his grandfather has a vest like this, so now they can fish together as 'professionals'--!

I bought this for my eight year old grand daughter. Just got a note from her mom -
She loves the vest! She has toys in every pocket and she just said, "I don't know why but I'm obsessed with this vest."
Fisherman or not, this is a fun vest for a kid to wear especially with all those pockets.

Bought this for our 9 year old grandson for his birthday. He put it on immediately and wore it all day! I know he will get a lot of use out of it not only for fishing but also to store all the "stuff" boys like to carry around with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NanaBear2 My Grandson Loves Vest!
Our son had the LL Bean fishing vest from back in the 80's. Our 5 year old grandson was so excited to try to find it in the basement, but it was nowhere to be found. We logged onto LL Bean website and it was delivered in 2 days. Grandson loves the pockets and zippers, he pretends it's a work vest, army vest, fishing vest.....I'm sure he will wear it to the beach this summer to fill with treasures. He is a little tall for 5 so I ordered the Medium 10-12 and it fits perfectly because it's cut a little short.

I ordered this vest as a field vest for my 10 year old nephew. He and my brother go on nature hikes and I thought he would enjoy the pockets on the vest for bringing along his gear as well as collecting small specimens. I gave it to him for Christmas and he was grinning ear to ear!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Farawayaunt First cast vest catches kids' imagination
My 8 y. o. niece and 6 y.o. nephew were thrilled with their First Cast vests. They spend a lot of time hiking and outdoors with their family. The vest has room for the treasures they find on hikes. They can also sew their junior ranger badges on the vest as they visit national parks and historic sites. Their dad gave them fly fishing lures for Christmas and they went right to their vests to hook them on. They'd outgrown their previous outdoor vests and both found the LL Bean vest to be an exciting step up with more pockets and a more grown-up look.
