Rated 5 out of 5áby MullerLight Great Fall/Winter transition piece
A lovely down vest. The purple is a beautiful color. Fantastic quality, and so warm. I wear a European size 34 and the Small in this was ideal. The Medium was too big.

Rated 3 out of 5áby IvyLeaguePrep LL BEAN: You need to start making XXS's!
I received my goose down vest today in the Navy in XS. I am 5'4" and 120 lbs and the XS is about an inch too big all around! I have been begging LL Bean to make their women's clothes in XXS, they desperately need to include this extra size because they continue to cut their clothing far too big. The company needs to realize that younger women don't want to look like they are carrying around extra pounds and you can't ignore the younger market. I'm 32 and although I value the function and quality of my clothing, the shape and fit are just as important. I expect my clothing to function well, but to also be flattering on me and as I read the other reviews, I can see that other customers are having the same problem with LL Bean outerwear and clothing - simple solution: start offering XXS sizing and gain a whole new demographic of customers who want their clothing to be flattering as well as functional.

Living in Australia, I was thrilled finding and receiving this vest. It is everything that I require. Great product, service and product. I loved the two week postage, but the $35 postage is a glitch in ordering regularly from this fabulous seller. Many thanks. Love, love the vest!

Rated 5 out of 5áby starsleeper Nice feel to it
Delivered at the end of May, so I won't know the warmth for a while. But the feel of this vest is just what I wanted. Very soft and not noisy/crunchy like some vests. I got large (5'7") and it was considerably tooooo big. Medium is right for me. Love the color. Classic look. I expect this will be a fave for Vermont in the fall.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LongtimeBeansfan Goose Down Vest
Of course I received this vest in time for the weather to (finally) turn too warm to wear it, but I can't wait now for cooler weather to return. The vest is so comfy with a fleece lining that makes the stand up collar and the pockets feel wonderful. The fit is perfect and it appears very well made.

Rated 4 out of 5áby winterwoman1 well...
...in short, it'll serve the purpose, i think, well enough. but a few negatives: it's the end of may, and i've finally received the vest that i'd been waiting to be available since november. as this is a very popular item, i'm surprised that bean - a great company - couldn't rush things a bit more than that for the winter and spring seasons. also, a very popular color - a dark tealish green - isn't being offered again. and, last but not least, the armholes need some big-time work. they're huge - at least two inches too big - and they're made out of a different and darker material than the rest of the vest, which definitely detracts and makes the vest look cheaper. all that being said, it's got decent loft, it washes well, it's comfortable, it doesn't look too bad, and no one else offers a similarly priced down vest, so i'll keep it. i'll try to remember to write again next winter to say if it's warm enough.

Love this vest. Runs true to size. Unfortunately, I had to return it because I ordered a size larger. They were out of the size I needed, therefore I was out of luck. I hope they bring this back this winter season. Would love to see it made in a classic hunter green.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Peach67 Very Warm, Comfortable Vest
This vest is nylon on the outside and fleece on the inside. It absolutely stops the cold wind and the wet snow! It is made long in the back so you don't get drafts up the back when you move around. It has been extremely cold (below 0) this winter and I use it to slip on over my inside clothes when I take my dogs for a quick trip outside. I also wear it under my coat when I am horseback riding. It is not too bulky yet very warm. It is just a terrific vest!

Rated 5 out of 5áby darlo52 Goose Down Vest
After several attempts to find a vest I liked I came across the ll bean goose down vest. I love it and it was just what I was looking for to replace my old one. It is a true fit. I ordered the xlg which is what I would normally buy and it fit perfect. I would recommend this vest if you are looking for warmth and a great look. Another thing I was very happy to see is it is not that shiny fabric that so many other vest are made of from other companies .
