I love this vest, its made extremely well, and I love the fabric. There is no static like the regular fleece vests.
This vest also launders nicely, and you can put it in the dryer on low heat or let it air dry.
Its pricy, but when on sale its a bargain for the quality.
I have several colors. Love wearing it with long sleeve LLBean turtlenecks.

Rated 2 out of 5 loved the old version of this vest
i requested item O AFX6, RN71341, VN06135 and I was referred to this vest. When I received it I was let down. I have several of the old schools vests but in storage and not easily accessible. My black vest has 7 1/2" zippers outside waist level pockets. This new version has 5 1/2" zippers. Oh pooH. cannot get my hands and wallet in zippers so small. My old vests has 2 pockets inside with 9 inch zippers great for camera remotes, phone accessories, large envelopes, passports MEDICINE for seven days and respectable for putting things through airport security. This new one has no inside zippered pockets!!!!! I've worn the old version on television in Ukraine and Russia with an audience of up to 100 million people so people ask me where did you get this vest. Because I wear wrist braces (I am a great grandmother) I do not carry a purse. The vest is my purse, lipstick, keys. ALL ZIPPED UP. IT WAS NOT A GOOD IDEA TO REDUCE THE LENGTH OF THE ZIPPERS OR TO ELIMINATE THE LARGE INSIDE POCKETS WITH LARGE ZIPPERS. BRING IT BACK PLEASE.
I purchase these vests in 2X and 3X; we do not need little anything and no little zippers!

Perfect fit - light weight, but warm & a lovely color. Can't get much better than this.

I had the original Weather Channel Wind Challenger vest, which I dearly loved. The inside pockets were terrific. I lost that however, and bought this as a replacement. I had to send the first one I received back as this vest is more fitted than the original one. I have now worn this one for a couple of weeks and it is as warm as the original. That said I do not like either the color of the interior pockets or the fact that there is only one on each side and neither are zippered. Otherwise I heartily recommend this vest.

I bought this vest for my wife, she loved it, kept her warm walking the dog, color and everything, except about 2 weeks after she started wearing it one of the zippers for the pockets broke, However LL Bean replaced it right after I reported the problem to them, it's 100% satisfaction and they support that 100%.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MissMaine wanted to love
fit was odd. I ordered XS. am 118 lbs, 5'3" Vest felt warm but was short, boxy and very unflattering. If it had some bust seaming or tapering it would have worked but I felt like a stuffed sausage. The packable vest is a great options but I really wanted a black fleece warm vest. Oh well... returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by molib838 perfect layering vest
I've purchased two of these (different colors) and absolutely LOVE them. I work in a mechanical shop and the heating system isn't the best, so I layer my clothing for work everyday. Being in and out of my office, this vest is warm, comfortable and I still look like a professional female without wearing men's outer wear. When receiving compliments on my outer wear, I'm always quick to reply that this is LLBean and I absolutely LOVE it!

This vest lives up to its name. Keeps the wind and cold out plus it's very attractive and fits well.
