Rated 5 out of 5áby FitnessWalkingGirl Perfect Vest
Love this vest - I own four of them. I'm a fitness walker and this vest is perfect - not too hot, not too cold. I paired it with the Trail Model Fleece Jacket this week with temps in the teens and they kept me warm.
Great job, LL Bean! Love your products!

Rated 4 out of 5áby VintageVenango NICE VEST BUT BOTTOM ELASTIC DIDN'T WORK FOR ME
At first glance I thought this vest was red and black. That's what attracted me, but it turned out to be berry or something that was more of a hot pink or fuchsia, colors I usually avoid. I thought I might like the wisteria (purple) though, so I ordered that. When it arrived it was a nice, medium purple, but the trim that I had thought was black was more of a dark gray. Still I might have kept this vest if not for the elastic that you can tighten around the bottom. I just couldn't get it to lie nicely, especially in the back. All in all, this was not the vest for me, but I wouldn't discourage others from giving it a try, especially if the colors appeal to you. I did like the zippered pockets - always a big plus in my mind. By the way, I am never sure whether to try a small or medium. In this case the small petite fit me well except for the goofy bottom. I'm 5' 1", 145 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5áby thatwombat Love it- great fit and sooooo comfy and well-made!
On a lark decided to buy the berry and wisteria on a 2-a-day sale- what a comfortable warm cozy vest and at a great price! I wanted to buy other colors and was willing to pay retail but I see all of the regular misses sizes are sold out and no other colors available. I hope LLB reissues this great item or can offer a similar product.
If anyone can recommend a similar item, I would be most appreciative.

This is absolutely the finest vest that I have ever purchased. It is very soft and warm, beautifully made and goes with everything! I highly recommend this vest to everyone - you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LivinLovely Versatile, Warm, Excellent Quality Vest
This vest has it all, fit, function, versatility, comfort, warmth, breathability, and thoughtful design. I am 5'2", 140#, 36D, athletic and the regular medium fits me to a tee. The cut of the vest is attractive, super comfortable and allows for freedom of movement when active. The back of the vest is longer than the front, and wonderfully covers my bum . I love to wear this vest. What else I love: so soft fleece, zippered outer pockets, 2 deep inner pockets (would be even better if zippered#, zipper has a chin protector and wind block flap, sherpa softness inside, smother plush fleece outside, reinforced shoulders #great for carrying a pack & for rain), washes beautifully, dries quickly, breathable yet warm and blocks more wind than "normal" fleece and again, super comfortable fit and design. I like to have a bit of room in my outwear for ease of movement and for layering, but no inconvenient excess, and this is perfect. The vest is great for layering or alone, and not only looks snazzy but is super versatile and functional. Great vest and I definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5áby judith1 Please Do Not Discontinue this Item
I have one vest in white and 2 jackets and I was planning on getting all the colors and when I went to order this time there was none available in my size, so I sent and e-mail and was very upset to hear that LL Bean will be discontinuing this item. You have 88% with great views. Is this not enough?. Please don't discontinue this item. It fits great, its warm enough, its water proof and I really like the part where it drops down in the back.
How many more reviews do you need to keep this item alive?

Rated 2 out of 5áby HonestShopper Weird Cut
I cannot believe that it has more than 4 stars. I just received mine. The width of the vest is very wide, but it is O.K. The problem is the seams around the chest which creat strange curves at the strange locatiions. In order to fit the vest, you need to be very busty and your breasts must touch your arms. The curves of left and right breast are not same either. The fleece fabric doesn't need a lot of curves because it is flexible and tend to stretch. It is too bad that I really like the color Teal Shadow.

Rated 5 out of 5áby KeriK Great Vest
Read the other reviews...I'm glad I did. I am a tried & true size Med with LL Bean, but becayse of the reviews and so many people saying this vest ran large, I ordered a small. I'm glad I did. I'd like it to be about an inch longer, it comes to my hips, it's a great fit otherwise. I have broad shoulders and a 36C chest and this fits great - with one or two regular shirts under it. I'll be wearing this for hunting as an extra layer of warmth. Great quality.
