Rated 4 out of 5 by TexasClothesDude Comfortable, good fabric
I'm an outdoors guy: fish, hunt and wear a lot of vests. I also wear them to tool around. For the money, this is a great vest. I wear a large, but I ordered an x-large. It gives me more room to wear a shirt underneath. It's got enough pockets to carry all of my outdoor stuff.

I'm new to fly fishing and was looking for a vest that would meet my needs at a reasonable cost This product did both there was ample "pocket space" to keep my fishing equipment and the fit was just right and the color and style was terrific. Also the price was great within my budget plan for getting started with fly fishing

This vest is simple, lightweight, very well made, and inexpensive which is exactly what I wanted. My fly boxes fit the pockets and there are enough pockets for my needs. The fit is as expected. I normally wear XL in most all things and the XL was a good fit for me even over a hooded sweatshirt/jacket. Keep in mind if you want to wear this vest over larger clothing you may want to go to XXL in size (common sense). Also being 100% cotton you need to follow the instructions on washing and care to avoid shrinking.

My husband loves this vest and he wears it to work nearly everyday. Yes, a little weird. However, he works in IT and needs a place to carry small items. The material is durable, and my husband loves the vest because of all the pockets with zippers, 2 rings and comfortable fit. We are purchasing 2 more vests.

This has turned out to be the perfect vest for my fisherman. He loves the pockets and has a use for every one of them. It is constructed well and of excellent quality and doesn't "drag" with all the extra weight in the pockets. The one time I was "given permission!" to wash it, it washed well and came out of the drier looking good as new.

we are loyal L.L.Bean customers due to the quality of your products and the ease of ordering and returning items. The fishing vest was all I expected. The material is rugged, the pockets adequate for all the different fishing needs, and the fit comfortable.

I was going to purchase this vest last year but didn't. When I looked at it this year the price had went up 50% making the price of it at the level I wouldn't be willing to pay. I was informed by customer service the very color I wanted was on sale and I was quite pleased with the vest after I had a chance to look it over on its arrival. I feel this is an excellent vest and I am sure I will have many years of use from it. As I said I feel it is very well made but I wouldn't purchase one at the higher price. LLBean says they made improvements to the vest but I don't know what improvements the vest could have needed in my opinion.

The vest says 2XL and it isn't. It's much smaller. It fit very poorly across the shoulders and the lower back extended outward. I'll be returning it.

Great vest- fabric, color, numerous pockets. Only problem is size. Large waaay too small even tho my guy wears a large (with room to spare) in LL Bean flannel shirt (purchased at the same time). He wants a fishing vest to fit over sweatshirt and coat since he fishes mostly spring and fall when it can be cold here in wny. Will exchange for XL or XXL.

This is an excellent vest for the fly fisher who does things simply and doesn't carry/need a lot of gadgets and doo-dads on the stream. If you need to take a lot of stuff with you in your vest, this ain't for you--not nearly enough pockets for the overindulger. But if you're an old dude like me and like to keep things simple--go for it. And the price is right.
