Rated 5 out of 5áby Stebro Nearly perfect for me
I'm retired and wear a vest mostly when I go into town. The pockets are well thought out and plentiful. It is summer weight and I wear a heavier vest in the cooler weather.
It's well made. I seem always to be able to count on the quality of the zippers from LL Bean. I'm an amateur photographer and I can carry all the gear I need, which isn't a lot, and all the gadgets of modern life without looking too lumpy. And for me, the fit is perfect.
It is longer than most vests which I find particularly attractive. I have a long torso and I carry a concealed pistol. Those who carry concealed are always concerned about accidentally revealing the weapon. It upsets some people needlessly.
Usually you wind up wearing a jacket which may be uncomfortably warm just for the purpose of concealment. The vest is far more comfortable and superior to the vests marketed particularly for CCW.
The vest seems of good quality, of course only time will tell how long it lasts but its prospects seem good.
So the vest is remarkably useful and comfortable and I wear it whether I'm carrying or not. I'm thinking about buying another just in case Bean decides to discontinue the item. Highly recommended.

This was a gift, meant to replace a similar well-loved and absolutely worn-out item. It arrived in a timely manner and was exactly as described on-line. It is of the expected quality, it is the expected color and it is a much appreciated and perfect replacement for the former "rag."

Rated 5 out of 5áby MrKen The Traveler Vest
I wear a vest every day. The reason is simple. Pockets.
Keys, knife, flashlight, wallet, band-aid pouch, lighter, gum, breath mints....well, you get the picture. I don't like to overload the pockets of my trousers. Over time I have worn many vests of different brands. This Traveler Vest is the first I have purchased from LL Bean. From the moment I tried it on I liked it. It was true to size, very comfortable and the pocket arrangement suited my needs very nicely. I would recommend it. If you have the need to carry all those little things you just can't leave home without then The Traveler Vest is worth a look.

Rated 5 out of 5áby POWDERPUF SUPER VEST
I purchased the vest for my son who was vacationing in India. It is absolutely perfect. It's got so many pockets where he can keep his valuables and other things safe and it is very light weight too (since he was limited in the what he could bring. He needed layers & the vest was also perfect to fill that need. Couldn't ask for a better garment...LLBEANS, once again, hit a home run.

Exactly what I wanted. Just took another trip to Costa Rica. It's great for traveling. Lots of pockets and soft yet strong material. Buy one! You'll be glad that you did.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Hazelhawk Wear it almost every day
This vest is my third one. It's basically a man's purse. We have a mini farm and I use vest for two extra pairs of glasses in zippered pockets, cell phone in button pocket, dog lease, keys and emergency candy bar in another buttoned pocket, jack knife, dog whistle, pair of light gloves in another buttoned pocket, pills in another small pocket and sun screen in another. Also pens in inside pocket. When one is in wash, I use another.

Rated 5 out of 5áby BMcDan5885 FINALLY enough pockets
Got this for my Dad who needed some extra pockets for some of his activities. He really liked the weight for warm weather. It fit well. We kept two - one dark and one a lighter color, He will be wearing these until its so cold he has to go back to his Winter ones. I was very pleased with the price and quality. LL Bean delivers on both as usual.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CHII Travel Vest
Needed a travel vest for overseas & airports. This product seems to have the right # of pockets, wallet, passport, tickets, currency & electronic gadgets w/o getting lost. Pocket a little tight for I-pad mini. Slightly heavier than I expected, however lighter weight would effect the longevity. You will want to wear a collared shirt to reduce possible chaffing around the neck.

Rated 5 out of 5áby drunkdragon Great vest!
This is the best outdoor vest I have ever had. It fits great, carries a lot of my stuff, and leaves my hands free for other things. Great for the trail or fishing.
