Rated 3 out of 5 by 30yrBeanGirl Bring back the old fitness vests
The past few years, L L offered a fitness vest that wasn't reversible BUT came in a GREAT assortment of colors, was MUCH WARMER and had a TWO WAY ZIPPER! L.L. why tamper with what works??? A few months ago I ordered and returned the new reversible fitness vest in the slate/grey. It is thinner, not as warm as the old models I have and looks cheaper overall. It now resembles vests from any dept. store/chain store. L.L. Bean you are much better than that !!! I guess I'm a majority of one but I don't understand all the great reviews for this new design. The reversible option is a good one if you hadn't compromised the original design, performance and quality. L.L. Bean, please bring back the old Fitness Vest for us "long time Bean buyers". (33 years). Some things were not meant to be tampered with.

This vest was comfortable and moved with me while I was horseback riding. It did ride up a little but it wasn't terrible that it caused any problems. It's light weight and the colors are so nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beejnorman I got 2
There was a sale, and these are terrific, so I bought two. Love the colors, the pockets are in the right places, love the reversible part, and the fit (a medium--I'm a 10-12, around 150lbs, 5'5") is great--not too tight, not too long.

I ordered the large grey and it was way too big, so returned it for a medium. I'm in between medium/large (5'6" 155).
The medium fits well, but won't be able to wear a heavy sweater under it. Love the color combination, but won't wear the smooth side out since it looks like lining, while the quilted side is very nice. Ordered the teal green and it is also a great color, style and fit. Receive compliments when I wear it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by City245 adorable and comfortable
Already over a month now I received this beautiful vest.
Love that's it reversible to put on either side depends on your
mood of the day. I have the petite size, fits me perfect and excellent
length of the vest for 5-5.4" ladies. The color blue is very pretty
and much in season for Spring. Material is also nice, not too
thick. I would say perfect for Spring and Fall and outdoors as well
as indoors. On the washing section can't comment on that yet but
I assume that will be no problem as long you read the wash&dry
instructions. Overall a pretty good Buy. Thanks LLBean!

Rated 1 out of 5 by NJWorkerMom Zipper Malfunction
I bought this vest with the idea of wearing it over lightweight sweaters and the x-small petite was a perfect loose fit for my 5'2" 104 lb frame. The problem is the cheap zipper. It is an extreme dissappointment, as I like the look of the vest, but I am going to return the vest. The zipper pops open from the bottom with the slightest pull, for example when sitting down! I have older coats from competitors with really heavy duty plastic zippers that are still going strong. Bean needs to find a manufacturer that uses a zipper worthy of the Bean name.
