Rated 5 out of 5 by Oregonmmc Best Vest ever!
I just got this vest for a trip to Texas in August -- ya' know -- heat and humidity. I am so pleased with this purchase! The cotton fabric is soft and lightweight. It breathes much better than other synthetic vests I have. The pockets are nearly perfect. I only wish that the inside pockets zipped instead of velcro -- I really don't like velcro and it seems like a cheap solution. The outside pockets are really well conceived. I love the eyeglass pocket, and the gusseted pockets are adequate. The two smaller zip pockets are really helpful. I carried expensive jewelry in one because I didn't want to put it in my checking bag. The only change I would make is that there is a seam across the yoke and it rubbed my collarbone a bit.This vest will last for years and I will get much use from it! Thank you LL!

This is a very nice vest. It is replacing one that I bought several years ago. The old one had a collar. This one does not and works much better with a shirt underneath. It also needs NO ironing to look brand new. It came out of the dryer just like it came out of the original package. Extremely pleased!

Everything you would expect in a QUALITY vest. Well made good looking and true to size fit. Only note it is heaver in weight than expected especially for hot summer days but I guess all those pockets do add weight. Great vest would highly recommend it.

Lots of room for the accouterments associated with travel and activities away from home. Nice looking, too. I did sew the spare button on it so the zipper flap is not left hanging when I don't use it. Fits well and is easily washed and cleaned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WECIII As always, great!
This is my second travel vest purchase from Bean and I am most pleased! Fit -- great! Quality -- great! Price -- fair to the market. I wouldn't have ordered a second, if I didn't love my first one. Now I have both colors of this superb vest! Two thumbs up, all the way!

I volunteer on trail crews. The vest works a lot better for valiables than a fanny pack or pockets. Keeps your stuff secure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by firefighterboots good fit super comfort,no riding up.
My last one purchased 4 years ago multitude of uses,very good for driving will not have feeling of being cramped up.After more or less daily use the cotton on seam near main zip is now getting thin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by migdalor Size can be an issue
Tried on a medium at LLBean store and it was much too small. Large was too large. Then I saw another medium hanging and that fit perfectly. I'm not sure what to tell folks who order on line. Having said that; I wore the vest every day while in South Africa and it was perfect for me. Yes, it is a bit heavy, but that speaks more to the quality of the vest which is very good. It works for me as I am an amateur photographer and the pockets are great to have. It also serves to be a security vest as well with room to stow passports, money and other valuables that you wish to keep out of the reach of pickpockets. If you get a size that fits, it is definitely a recommended item to have. I will be wearing it this summer when I again travel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bud42 Travellin' vest
This vest is a good one but not enough superior to those I have to toss those and keep this one. It runs small for size. The bellows pockets are not the best bellows I have seen. Any more than a pair of gloves would not fit. Good points are: no 'hook and loop' except on two inside pockets, button closures on the pockets, zipper plus snap-tab front closure, light weight material, and cotton.
