Rated 5 out of 5áby NoCAwalkergal All purpose vest
My new favorite vest, and I have several from L.L. Bean! Light, fits well (Large) and a great length (I am 5''6"). Charcoal grey is a beautiful neutral and a great change from my old black fleece, which I gave away. Packs down small just as described, and is truly an all purpose weight for my walking/biking. Warm during cool weather and light during warm weather. Zipper can stick a tiny bit when trying to unzip but so far this has been completely manageable. Great job, L.L. Bean! So nice that it prompted me to finally write a review after all these years of being a fan. Hope to buy the plum purple one in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5áby WAtraveler Perfect Travel Vest
I hesitated before buying this vest because of the reviews citing a too small zipper. The zipper size is not a problem for me. I chose a size that allows for some ease rather than a closely fitted look. The white vest will be perfect for year round travel. It laundered well - washed and dried with delicates. Dry time was minimal, so I think it could be washed in a hotel sink if necessary. The packaway vest is flattering and suitable for city or casual outdoors. And comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5áby FittinN Awesome Vest!
I love this very stylish new vest from llbean! The fabric is light yet very warm and it packs great too! This is my second purchase, I also have this vest in the grey color that I took on a recent trip and wore daily. The vest is a bit pricey, but it is a keeper and well worth the investment.

Rated 4 out of 5áby sailorgal Love this vesst But....
love this white vest with my black turtleneck sweater and black jeans, But when I unzip the vest the cream strip beside the zipper is a really downer and looks terriable. I am looking for a white pen to cover the cream up. More colors please, would love to have a black vest. I am 5'8 .160 Lbs and usuialy wear a XL but even over the top of my sweaters this vest is big on me, but I am keeping it anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5áby HawkFan Nice light vest
Great vest, warm and lightweight. Agree with other reviewers and gunmetal gray is bluer than appears on-line. Recommend more color options including black.

Rated 5 out of 5áby skikayak Perfect weight for additional Warmth
I purchased the vest to wear under my alpine ski jacket when it is extremely cold. Everything I found locally was to bulky for a comfortable fit. The Accent Packaway Vest provides the additaional warmth with little bulk.

Rated 5 out of 5áby HappyDays123 Light weight
The white packaway vest is a nice weight to wear over a sweater or under a warm jacket without being too warm. I'll be wearing it through winter and into spring.

Rated 5 out of 5áby snowshoe41 Fits as described, allows many options for wearing
It is terrific. I love vests but this is exceptional and should be continued, maybe in more colors. Medium fits perfect (5'6" 135 lb) and will supplement many warm outfits for cool and cold weather.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Weimom Super Lightweight and Warm Vest
I purchased this in blue on sale for my mother recently. She is always on the lookout for a good vest to layer or wear alone. She's purchased vests from Europe to Asia, but she was impressed by how lightweight and warm this vest is. She's over 70 yrs old, and always has a vest on-hand. This has become a new favorite. I was impressed with the light weight and just purchased the matching jacket. I can't wait to get my hands on it.
