I just received this vest and am so very, very disappointed with the material it surely is not what I expected from LLBean. The fit is really bad also I am large busted and usually order a large but this was extremely large. I'm sending it back, this was a $6.50 (rtn postage) lesson. I would have exchanged for another trail model black vest but afraid I'd loss another $6.50.

Classic style. Fits just right. (not bulky) Basic color (Black) warm comfortable vest.
Unbelievable value. Just what I have been searching for. At this sale price may order a second one before they are all gone. So happy with my purchase.
L.L. Bean you are the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovinglife1 Medium weight fleece, runs a little big
I got this in a medium due to the reviews, as it does run a little large. So, I would say go down a size. This is a thicker fleece than the comfort fleece, so it is a little warmer. It fits nicely and can be layered under a coat or jacket. I wear vests often now that I live wear it snows. This is the perfect weight to wear alone or layered. I went back and ordered a second one in gray.

Love this black vest. Goes with any color long sleeved t shirt and jeans. I'm 125 lbs and am 5'3" and the petite xtra small fits. The petite small is big in the armholes and of course has more fabric.

I love the Trail Model vest-my old one had disappeared (maybe left on the plane) so I ordered a new one. It fits perfectly with a few layers underneath and it keeps you warm for most outdoor activities. I wore it underneath a big jacket for the Antarctic cold and on top of a turtleneck for a winter in San Diego! The zippers on the pockets let you keep gloves, sunglasses, water bottles,etc. I was so glad it was on sale when I needed a new one to go to Alaska.

I love to wear fleece vests in the fall, winter & spring. Vests are so versicle either alone or as an extra layer of warmth. I have a number of them in various styles & colors. I just added a green beechnut Trail Model fleece vest to my collection. It is well made and comfortable. Looking forward to wearing it when the cold weather returns.

I love the fushia color and the soft plush. This vest runs long so it doesn't give you cold gaps at the waist. It runs a little large but I figure I can wear it over a thick sweater. Great for cold winter days and on the ocean fishing for salmon!

Great basic layering piece. Soft. Size one up from your normal to allow for sweater layer under. Nice warm pockets for hands with zipper to keep from losing your goodies. Love the stand up collar - warm, soft and just the right size, not too tight or tall. Length is good, to mid-hip. Fits well under coats and jackets. Great price.

I bought this vest in a petite medium, which is my usual size, but it was too big. That is the reason I gave it a 4 star rather than 5. So I would suggest you buy one size down. The petite small was perfect and still had plenty of room to wear over light to medium shirt or sweater.. It is very well made and very soft, lightweight and warm. I am thinking of ordering in more colors.
