Still waiting....I went against my better judgement and ordered an XL online. Way too big and I always wear an XL so just likes their boots this runs big!!! I know LL Bean is popular right now however I am anxiously waiting for my exchange! The original order came fast, within a few days but this exchange is taking quite awhile. I have a ton of outfit ideas, please get back here cushy pocket Bean Vest...it's supposed to snow today here in CO!

I like Women's Waxed Cotton Down Vest a lot. Some women could find it a bit heavy for down vest, but I really like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SanDiegoSusan Just as Good as First One
I bought this vest in khaki in 2012 and liked it so much that I just bought another one in loden. I was hoping it would be as good as the first one and it's even better because it's brand new!! I love this vest and had been waiting for this color to be available in my size (XS). I was so excited to be able to get it and I was able to use coupons and gift cards to lower the cost. One thing I really like about this vest is the pockets---so many and so versatile with snaps and zippers and loops. I also like the inside pocket and one of my favorite things is the loop on the outside zipper. It is strong and easy to grip even with gloves. I wear this vest for riding my horse, hiking, traveling, and walks on cold days. It is very warm and comfortable and it is easy to keep clean---just brush off dirt or use a bit of water for spot cleaning. It is true to size and is a perfect length----high hip (I'm 5'2", 107) and wear XS. I usually order petite, but this comes only in regular and it fits fine. I highly recommend this vest----it's beautiful, functional, well-made, and very flattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MatureUrbanCowgirl Great vest!
I ordered two different vest styles from LLBean. The instant I tried this one on, I knew I was going to keep it. It is warm and made well. It feels substantial. It is also classy in a woodsy-casual sort of way. I feel comfortable wearing it to town over a thick sweater as well as bringing in wood for the wood stove. Unlike the thinner, lighter style I tried, I feel this one will last for a long time. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rhodeislandshopper18 comfortable, waterproof and great fit!
I like this vest. Fits true to size. Even though it is short - not a problem with longer sweater underneath. Will enjoy this for a very long time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Eliabeth523 Deal Breaker
I so desperately wanted the other reviews saying this vest was way too shot to be wrong, but when I got it, they proved to be true. I absolutely love every other aspect of this piece but the length is a definite deal breaker. If it was longer by 2 to 3 inches it would be perfect and worth every penny. As it, it is getting sent back. For this price, I can find a more flattering vest. Super disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLPurchaser Good vest, but?.
This short, down vest has some nice features, such as the snap closures as well as a zipper, so you can leave bottom open when seated. Also hand-warmer and cargo pockets are good features.
However, it's not nearly as soft and "packable" as an earlier Bean down vest that no longer is available, and I regret that loss.

Rated 2 out of 5 by IvyLeaguePrep Once again, another boxy piece from Bean.
Colors are nice, but once again its TOO BOXY AND TOO SHORT. I AM 5'3" AND YET THIS VEST IS TOO SHORT, I CAN ONLY IMGAGINE HOW AWKWARD IT MUST LOOK ON A TALLER PERSON. ALSO, ITS TOO BOXY, THERE IS NO REASON BEAN CANNOT CREATE THE SAME VEST WITH A SHAPED, SLIMMER DESIGN. I WOULD APPRECIATE IT, AS WOULD OTHERS, IF BEAN WOULD CREATE AN XXS OPTION AND RESHAPE THEIR OUTWEAR FOR WOMEN SO THAT THE WAIST TAPERS INWARD AND MAKES US ALL LOOK THINNER.

Rated 3 out of 5 by outdoorsisbest1 a little heavy
I really wanted to like this vest. It is really cool looking on and off, but it is too heavy for me. I am so used to the ultra light outerwear that is out now. I am 58 yrs old, 5'7" and 140#, got a medium and it fit around the chest but a little big around the armpits.
