Rated 5 out of 5 by tcjk Waterfowl Sweater Vest
During the winter months, my wife and I have different ideas as to just what is a comfortable temperature to maintain in the house. She likes the thermostat set a bit cooler that I like. Now, when I wear my Waterfowl Sweater Vest around the house, we are both happy. I've even taken to wearing it while driving on longer road trips. It certainly beats wearing a heavier coat for extended periods of time. (Even if the coat is an LL Bean coat)

The vest fits well, as have all products I have ordered from LLBean over the past 50 years, Thanks,
However on this vest, the start of zipping it up is a bit difficult. It takes quite a bit of time to force the metal tip into the zipper. There may be some distortion in the tip, so that I have to press strongly to get it in, and often have to try many times to get it. I always do get it in, but most of the time it takes 3-5 times before I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by UncleJim Great casual vest
Lives up to it's description, great fit, bought it for this winter but the weather has allowed me to wear it early and it is just what I needed. Will wear it under a winter coat later.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EdChitown my go to vest
Need a warm vest when fleece doesn't look good enough? This is the one. Comfortable and sharp. Only wish it had either zip pockets or inside pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bhobbs63 My go to...
This vest (my second) is now one of my go to items in my wardrobe. It is well made and extremely comfortable, exemplifying LLBean quality. Perfect sizing and I like the vest style because it is not too restricting. Perfect for our business casual office or outside on cool nights or chilly days.

Great sweater/vest. Perfect to wear under an outer wear shell for all type outdoor activities. Great to wear alone on cool days. Great fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nancybstan Love the vest!
I bought two of these for my husband. The Loden (very dark olive) is my favorite! The brown one is a nice "tweed"-looking brown.
He wears XL in some things, and XXL in others. At first, I ordered an XXL. It was huge! Exchanged for an XL, which is a little loose, but I guess it's because this is an outerwear item, not a standard pullover sweater vest. Ordered another one b/c I have a hard time finding full-zip sweater vests for him. These are such great quality, they truly are a bargain at this price for what you get, and compared with other brands. My husband wears these like he would any other shirt/vest combo, leaving the vest on all day indoors. He does not look as though he's playing "let's pretend I'm going hunting"........the photos accentuate the shoulder area, but in real life, the shoulder areas are just woven in a different weave, and it looks like a fashion detail rather than a duck hunter's vest.
Highly recommend this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beanafanofbean Too popular to keep on the shelf.....
I love my vest but sorely disappointed I've not been able to order a couple more....LLBean seems to be chronically out of stock....mine is threadbare and it's definitely time for an upgrade.....but when, oh when?

Rated 4 out of 5 by pluto734 Good quality / difficult zipper
The vest was thick while being "dressy" -- something that is hard to find. It is well made. The reason I took a "star" off is the zipper. The contrasting trim makes it hard to "start" the zipper. Not sure my elderly dad (for whom I bought it) will be able to work the zipper.
