Rated 1 out of 5 by Blazerguy Size Does Matter
I ordered the Large-Extral XL size. The vest arrived, and I tried to get it on, but even though it was labeled as XL, it was very small. It was not worth returning and getting a new one, because I ordered the biggest size, and that is what the label was marked as. So, I went to my tool box and cut up some Velcro pieces to extend the snaps, and made it work

The vest is difficult to get on over a winter jacket and get the sides fastened. It does not provide enough reflective area. It bunches up when you are walking due to the two Velcro ties on sides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JRVA Fits small
I am 6ft 195 lbs. The large fits snug.
My wife is 5ft 110lbs. The smaller size fits snug.
I wear this every time I go run at night. You can adjust the straps around your mid section for comfort with the velcro straps on either side.

I ordered this for greater visibility at night while out walking my dog. My neighborhood has few sidewalks so am forced to walk along the street. The vest works great and is easy to wear. It does fit smaller than I expected though. I assumed the sizing would be unisex and ordered a S/M. I normally wear women's size S or XS so hoped it would be big enough to wear over a coat. I can wear it over a jacket but not my heavier coats. The mistake was mine--if I really want to wear it over my parka I will just order another one in a bigger size.

Vest runs small, not good over jacket.
If you are wearing over a jacket buy something else.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Motorcyclewear Runs small!
I ordered a L/XL hoping it would be large enough to wear over a sweatshirt. It doesn't even fit comfortably over a t-shirt! so I won't be wearing it for the activities I had hoped. This item would be good for jogging or walking in the summer in light weight clothes. It runs VERY small so consider that when ordering. Just taking it out of the bag I got a snag in the mesh from the velcro. It doesn't seem like it's going to be very durable. It has very short velcro straps. If they were longer it would help a lot in sizing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by cycler Not what I needed
I purchased this to use for walking and bike riding later in the year when there is less daylight. I am 5' 6" and 145'. I had tried the Vest I and it was way to small for me so I thought I would have a look at Vest II in large and it is better but I am going to stick with what I use which is a basic official vest like a construction worker uses for $10. I mainly use mine to wear when I walk to work in winter but thought this would be good for riding a bike but I could use a larger one. I want to be seen in the dark so I never understand why items like this are so small especially the reflective part. I love Brooks items in general but not the vest which I returned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by canineowner Good for low light or daytime visibility.
This vest is good for low light or daytime visibility, but because the reflective strips are so small, I don't think it's a good choice for the dark. The vest definitely runs on the small side. If you want to wear it over a bulky sweatshirt or a jacket, get the large/x-large.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RTMACK Runs very small
I purchased this for bicycle riding. I ordered the L/XL and it was smaller than anticipated. Except for the sizing issue I would have kept since the quality seem appropriate for the price. I did return this item.
