Rated 5 out of 5 by KerryyrreK Wonderful travel vest!
I have had this vest on Dark Loden for a year, and I absolutely love it. It is very nice fabric, well made and very well thought out. There are lots of secure pockets, but the vest still looks nice and not too bulky or frumpy. Pockets for cash, credit cards, phone, tickets, lip gloss, camera, just about anything one might need in travel. I also wear it when at home, walking my doggies, room for the necessary p**p bags! It may be a bit too warm in very hot climates, but fine in just about anything else. The side buttons give a little shaping that helps this look great. I give this an A+ LLBean!

I have been trying to get away from carrying any kind of hand bag or shoulder bag , bought this vest ... It does the job and it looks great . The fit is perfect . Now I want another color . LL Bean has done it again . Very comfortable and just the right weight .

Rated 5 out of 5 by VegasOldie No need for a purse!!!!!
This is PERFECT even in summer, or over a sweater in autumn, and no need for a purse because I carry everything in the outer & inner pockets from money to cell phone to keys and tissue. Bought both colors so that darker one is perfect for cooler days, and light color one is perfect for hot days!!!! Love the fact that I never have to carry or tote a purse ever again. And love the 100% cotton fabric!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luv2roam great find!
I bought this with the idea of using it for work around the farm, rather than for travel. Its such a wonderful vest, I may have to use it for travel and activities in the city (such as my dog training events, which require carrying everything on your person), and get another one for the farm work! the fit is perfect. Its not bulky like some cargo type vests. There is great detail in the construction and features.
And, you can tell that it is constructed to allow ventilation when you need it. I am very happy with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cropping Great Fit...very durable...
Love this vest...I did a lot of research before buying this vest and it has proven to live up to my expectations. I garden a lot and always need pockets for seeds and papers along with my keys and phone.This vest wears so well that I can really put in a hard days work and enjoy the pockets . I love the looks and plan to buy the other color soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bufgal Just what I was looking for, but ...
I was disappointed I had to return the jacket. Loved all the pockets, but jacket was too small, so I had to return it. It was XL, but LL Bean needs to make it in women's sizes, 1x, 2x, 3x for the larger woman. Men's sizes do not work, as proportions are off. Also more color choices would be very nice. Size 1x would have worked nicely for me. I had planned to use it for trail riding and travel. Would have worked well with all the pockets. Please Bean, make it in women's sizes!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sqwimmer Not for Tropical Weather
I so wanted to keep this vest. It had all the pockets needed for my travel needs and was very classy looking on. The Loden color was a very nice "go with everything" color. However, I wanted it for adventure travel to Africa and warm tropical clients where luggage weight is very restricted. The vest is made of a heavy and durable material, but just too heavy and warm for my travel needs so I had to return it. Make this EXACT vest in a light weight, fast drying material and I will purchase it in a heartbeat!

Rated 4 out of 5 great vest but could be better
great color and lots of pockets. I would have preferred a bigger gusset on the 2 lower pockets to accommodate larger items.. e.g. lens for camera or makeup bag. Sadly the medium did not fit over my hips... being a vest they do not give waist and hip measurements or exact garment measurements.... crazy in my opinion as they cover these areas.... so I ordered the large but it was too wide on the shoulders. My problem would have been solved with a band of stretchy material at both sides... this would also be helpful if you stuffed all your valuables in the pockets for air travel . I couldn't recommend it to a friend without deeper gusseted pockets. Fabric was great and color perfect though.
