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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MOM2JNJ Excellent vest for travel
I just used this vest during a ten day trip to different European countries. Outside pockets were perfect for my camera, sunglasses, small notebook/pen, wallet and a few other small things. My only criticism is that I wished the inside pocket was a bit longer so I could securely velcro it shut - this is where I kept my passport and most of my cash. It was nice not having to worry about leaving my purse somewhere and I felt a little safer about the pickpockets we were warned about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by merrie4121 Great safari style vest!
I have been purchasing products from LL Bean for about 40 years and, when I do, I expect to recieve a top quality product. This traveler vest did not disappoint! It is beautifully tailored and fits like a glove. Some other reviewers said the fabric is too heavy...I disagree, I think it is the perfect weight. If you enjoy the look of safari clothing as I do, you will really appreciate this vest. I got it to wear on birding outings and expect it will perform quite handsomely!

Rated 3 out of 5 by KONAGMA Disappointed
This is a nice looking, well constructed vest but the pockets were not big enough for the items I normally carry when I travel so I have reluctantly returned it. It would have been very helpful if the dimensions of the pockets had been included in the description of the vest,
