Rated 5 out of 5 by Bassnwhaler Just get it.....
Warm but not too warm. Breathes. Not itchy. Very stretchy, helps with life, especially fishing and hunting but also picking up kids or cases of beer. The lined pockets are terrific and are close enough to your belly button that they don't flare out on the sides and make you look fat(ter) and they are toasty warm. It runs big. I normally wear a xxl or xl long but the xl fits perfectly. Remember the stretch factor. I am 6'1 and 265 with a long torso. A 48-50 long in suits. This is a great sweater vest...

As with all Bean products the quality is #1. Should get many years of use from a well thought out product. Bought both colors...

Sweater vest runs a bit large. I got an extra-large first but then it was too large and exchanged it for a large which fits perfectly.merino wool is a bit rough but still is very comfortable and feels sturdy. I liked it so much that I ordered two.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bean77 Great material and design, but long in the body.
Although I was most impressed with the material and design of the vest, I returned it because it was abnormally long in the body. At 6'1", I border between regular and tall, but the vest's pattern was far too long for me to keep it.

I picked up this vest on my last visit to Bean and have fallen in love with it. Not only is it comfortable and warm but it is something that I can wear both casually or to work with a dress shirt underneath. It's not too heavy and the knit provides just the right level of warmth for me. I'm very happy with it and look forward to wearing it for years to come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fashionista2 Pricey, But Very Nice Vest
Very nice sweater vest. It is warm and I do like the non-itchy lining around the collar. The sizing is a little on the big side. A size small fits me perfectly and I am 5'11", 170 lbs., with a 39 chest size and a 32-inch waist.

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.

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.
