Love this vest! It and a hooded sweatshirt are good for sub freezing temps.
Wish the back was a little longer.

This is a really well made, comfortable and warm vest that should last forever. It runs big so order a smaller size. It also fits a bit short which is fine with me but maybe not if you are tall and slim.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jian Fine quality but boxy fit
Decent quality, felt warm although the material does attract alot of lint as many have mentioned.
My biggest gripe was the boxy fit. I'm 5'11 and 165lbs and had 8 inches of spare space by the waist, it was a sz small and I wore a thick sweater! If you are used to slimmer fitting then this vest simply doesn't work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by StuckInCC Good purchase
This is a very nice vest. It's got some weight to it so check the specs if you're looking for something super lightweight.
As for the sizing, I am 5'8" and 175lbs. Though I normally order a medium in most clothing, for the second time with Bean products I ended up going with a small and it was again the correct choice. This vest fits fine even when wearing a warm hoodie underneath.
Overall, I real nice purchase. Quite pleased with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RMC116 Well Made & Functional
I have been very happy with this purchase. The vest is well-made, comfortable and looks good. I looked at several different brands of waxed-cotton down vests before settling on LL Bean, but found this one to be the best value. It's also close enough in color that I can wear it underneath my Barbour jacket. The zipper is not quite as heavy-duty, but the quality is very good for the price.

Excellent well built vest. Very warm and comfortable. I ordered a large and it fits me to a T. I am 5' 8" 173 Lbs.with a 36 waist. Pockets are nice and roomy and warm. Zipper is of great quality and easy to use. I like the inner vest pocket on the left side, great for a small caliber concealed carry. I haven't warn it in the rain yet but I'm sure it will repel the rain nicely. This vest is well worth the money. I'm happy I bought it, I will be wearing a lot around town. I highly recommend this vest to anyone, man or women. The outer part of the vest is rugged and will wear a long time.

The quality of materials and finesse of the workmanship are always the expected level of quality for LL Bean products but this vest is even a step beyond the perfect typical product. Fits,.....like a loose glove (as it should). Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jkgonzo187 Warm & Lightweight
This is my favorite down vest out of five prominent ones I researched online. It isn't too puffy but still super warm and very lightweight. It has already battled plenty of rain and snow with no problem. I got it in "Loden" and it looks outdoorsy but sharp. Only downside would be that it's not washable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sundance204 Good Quality, Little Baggy
The quality of this vest is up to par with LL Bean standards. The seams are strong, the material seems tough and it is warm, even for Canadian standards.There is a loop around the zipper which means I can use it with gloves on and both zipper and snaps seem rugged. Good pockets and soft lining. The drawstring ties are made of plastic, but seem good enough.
The one issue I had was finding a proper size. I bought a large due to my height (6'1") but had to take it to the tailor who took 4" off the midsection. I measure 36" around the midsection (just above hips) so this vest (L) might better fit someone who is in the 39-40" range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveVermont Good looking -good quality
Bought for my Army-guy son for Christmas - very pleased with the weight and quality of the vest. Warm, nicely tailored without being too preppy. Fit seems to run true (he is wearing over flannel or cotton button down given his climate.) Good value for the money. Up to my Bean expectations!
