I am not certain what more can be written about this vest. I had one a few years ago and gave it away as I thought I would not wear it. I wish I had not done that. I purchased a replacement this past fall, and I am extremely happy with it. Recently I had a business meeting in another state. I hate to take a coat on the airplane so I packed my waterfowl vest instead. I wore it to and from the meeting in temperatures as low as 18 degrees. I was not cold at all. When I returned to Maine it was 10 degrees. I had to walk to my car in the airport parking lot, clean the snow from a recent storm, and drive away in a vehicle that had sat in freezing temperatures for a week. This vest PERFORMED. It works so well I have ordered a second color. I am using it as a replacement for a coat in short walks from the car. If it works in Maine I cannot think of another place it would not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Occhi waterproof/warm/great fit
pros: love the overall style, warmth, and fit
cons: collar rides over shirt collar (may adjust with wear) and wish there was an internal/external pocket for wallet/cell phone.

This is a great sweater, as a matter of fact this is the second one that I have purchased. I mainly use the sweater when I am out playing golf but it is great to wear anytime a "little extra" is needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HikerNJ Commuter vest
The waterfowl sweater vest was a nice replacement for a nylon hiking vest that I had been using as a liner for my overcoat used for commuting. The high neck line protects my neck/ chest from the harsh winter winds of NYC. The sweater seems to be of high quality and is very comfortable, especially against the neck. I could see wearing this casually but I'll stick with my hiking vest for hiking as it is lighter and does a better job at cutting the wind. The sweater is generously cut, especially at the gut and I had to return my first purchase for a smaller size. I would have given this item 5 stars if the weave were tighter. I really like buying from LL Bean. They provide good quality for the $$ on the items I've purchased and provide an all around outstanding customer experience.

The sweater vest is an excellent product. Fit was perfect; sometimes Large is not quite what it is supposed to be, but this was. The color is beautiful and the vest is extremely warm. The zipper works well. Color allows it to go with a variety of shirts and jackets. I looked in stores and at several web pages. Nothing compares.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Callitlikeitis Not the Same as last year
I bought 2 of these sweaters last year and decided to by Navy blue this year. Last years model has a fleece lining and is very warm, this years model is not lined and definitely not as warm. I am very disappointed and feel it is not worth the money.

This is a great vest for both indoor and outdoor use. The collar and pockets are fleece lined, and the merino wool is soft, itch-free, good looking, and a good fit. This vest will get a lot of use.

I was looking for a while for a all wool vest and this is it. The fit (I am slender build) and workmanship are good and the price is competitive.
