Rated 5 out of 5 by Rhubarb737 Excellent Fleece Vest
Just got this vest in size XS, Misses' regular, in the forest fern heather colour. XS is my usual Bean size and I'm 5'7, 130-135lbs, hourglass shape.
I think this vest is excellent quality, looks good, comfy, true to size, will serve me well as a layer, both under and overtop. The colour I got, I chose due to it being among a few choices on a daily markdown. I might have preferred a less vibrant/neutral colour otherwise just to be more versatile, but it's actually nice as well, kind of the colour of Kermit the Frog and it definitely pops.

Purchased PM in the blue. Color is as shown, really nice blue. I like the relaxed cut, room to layer and zip...looks good with just about everything.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jatb Zipper is the only downside.I'll get used to it.
This vest fits well. I like that it rides below my waist for extended core warmth. The color is beautiful. The fleece is good quality, and the workmanship appears to be, also. I've just had this about a week. The price was competitive with other vests I have. The only downside to not give this a '5' is the zipper pull - it's on the left side. This is my 7th fleece vest, 6 are other brands, all but this one have a right sided zip pull. This is actually the only piece of outerwear we own (and we own hundreds and often layer up) that has a left sided zipper pull. so, it's awkward. I like it enough to try to get used to it, but a right handed zipper pull would have earned it a 5 (+).

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1CampingGrandma This vest is heavenly
I absolutely LOVE this vest. I am very happy with the fit. I'm 5' 6 1/2" and 158 lbs. and wear the Large. It is so soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by coquinablue Roomy comfort
I ordered this vest in the charcoal and it is really nice. It is available in petite which is a must for me. This is a roomy vest and though I like that some might prefer to order a size down from their normal size. I'd like to purchase again in another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosette LOVE!
I had never purchased or worn a vest before, but since I now have a large cell phone, I wanted something I could wear often with zipper pockets. This vest is beautiful and I love that I can wear it with almost everything! Well made and looks great on. I'm 5'8, 140 lbs and the SMALL fits me perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by josaysso Good Vest for Lots of Wear
I bought this in grey. Well, that's a good quiet color and goes best with my LL Bean flannel shirts.... its ok with other shirts but not as good as with the Bean shirts. It's great with zipper pockets! My cell phone stays with me even when I take the vest on and off. The vest leaves your arms free and not all bound up. If you go over someone's house and don't know their temps, this is a sure thing when sitting around.

by newIdahoan It melted
I wore this vest while cooking dinner. Stir-fry fat splashed on the front and it melted. Now, there are spots that have sunk into the fabric. I hoped if I washed it, it would be OK, but it's not. I will be returning it. I loved it so much that I ordered one for my husband and son. They will not be allowed to wear them near any kind of fire or stove.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dobergirl great vest
These vests are very flattering. I would give it 5 stars, but the color selection is limited and not very good. Honestly, the colors shown don't coordinate with long sleeve shirts that you may want to wear with the vest. Other than white, what LL Bean shirt coordinates with that green or purple vest? A little wardrobe planning would be very helpful.
