Rated 5 out of 5 by oldHeloIP Nice Vest
Initially purchased the khaki vest to cover those items attached to my belt which needed to remain concealed. This vest is perfect for that purpose. But beyond that, this thing has USEABLE buttoned and zippered pockets everywhere! No more frustration looking for somewhere to stow stuff. I especially like the zippered pocket for glasses which is hidden along the front closure zipper. And speaking of glasses, the cleaning cloth attached inside the l/front cargo pocket is a nice touch. Great on the motorcycle, too. For what it's worth, I'm now the proud owner of the green version as well. Honestly, for me this is now a "must have".

Rated 5 out of 5 by pqann Love those pockets
I bought this jacket for my husband, because he was complaining that his light-weight jacket didn't have enough pockets. This casual vest has 11 pockets and he was ecstatic when he saw it. We were at a multi-dealer craft festival in Connecticut last weekend and four people came up to him, wowed by his pocket vest. Of course, we told them it was from L.L. Bean!

Consider ordering one size higher than your normal if you prefer lose clothing. Compared to my other clothing of same size designation, this one is snug for sure, but comfortable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by zaddy Not good for my needs
Vest is very well made and seems very durable. Buttons on the pockets weren't functional for my needs,but are well done.

My husband loves the Traveler Vest I gave him for Father's Day. It is as described, a good weight, neutral color, and good fit. It has so many handy pockets, some zipped, some flapped, that he has the perfect place to store passport, money, camera, glasses, snacks, and even his slightly boxy diabetic test/meds kit. It even has tabs to snug the fit and is washable. Thanks, L.L.Bean!

Needed a vest for travel and local trips to carry phones, sunglasses, keys, wallet, etc. this one was my choice over competition and at a substantial savings. Well made with variety of pockets to store most everything I usually carry when traveling. Just really like it! Note: I throw it on when making a local trip because of the pocket variety and it just looks good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PulpWorker Comfortable, convenient and perfect for travel.
I travel around the world and luggage and airports are an inconvenient reality of modern travel. The L.L. Bean Traveler Vest makes the journey much easier. The vest is lightweight and comfortable but well-made and with numerous pockets designed for carrying wallets, documents, cameras, and other trip essentials. I also use it for weekend hikes to carry maps, binoculars, cameras, etc. My only regret is waiting so long to buy it. The vest is a "must have" item for those who travel the world or those who take weekend hikes close to home.

Going on long overseas trip this fall and need something to carry all of my stuff!!! Used to carry a camera bag but got to cumbersome. The pockets will allow easy access to everything and also a small amount of security. Size wise it runs a little small so I ordered it one size larger. Good decision!!!.
Over all very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TXBobcat Very good travel vest.
I am very pleased with the LL Bean Travel Vest. The design is excellent. Well made. A little heavier than I expected. Plenty of pockets, but not an overwhelming number. The fit is good. I am usually between L & XL. I bought XL, and after washing and drying it's perfect. It washed well, and came out almost wrinkle free. I'm giving the vest a 5 star rating, but I think it could be improved with a somewhat lighter weight material and removing the button flap over the zipper.
