Rated 5 out of 5 by Saratogian Versatile and comfortable
This is a nice vest that should be useful most of the year. It is lightweight but wind and water resistant, so it is very effective outdoor wear. Very comfortable. It seems durable and easy to care for. Great item.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GremlinTamer Loose fitting around the waist promotes beer drink
Although it appears to be fitted and athletic, it is not. It has more of a straight cut that causes it to bulge out as it hangs off of my chest. I have a 40" chest and a 31" waist and this vest bulges out like a maternity dress. There are no waist pulls to snug it up and the air inside compromises warmth. I suppose I can start drinking more beer and eating more bar food so I can expand my beer belly and grow into it. Thanks, L.L. Bean, for giving me an excuse to party!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ExiledJedi Warm and has nice pockets
As others have noted, this vest is a bit different than your traditional fleece! The fabric is light, with an outside weave similar to that of a sweatshirt, only denser. The inside of the fabric feels more like a normal fleece. The hem doesn't have a draw cord, but I'm not sure that it needs one, because the vest has a close fit. I've found that it keeps me comfortably warm inside my chilly house and during quick jogs outside.
My favorite details are the pockets: the hand warmer pockets are completely fleece and are much more comfortable than mesh pockets. There are also two stretch interior pockets and a chest pocket that's well sized for mobile phones.
Overall I was really surprised by how much I liked this new vest. The design and utility are superb.

Nice vest, but it is cut very small. Order one size up from your regular size to get an appropriate fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by benthere Good fit, deep pockets, inside pocket for players
Have not had a chance to use for what I want to use it for, but believe it will perform well. Only wish it had a slick inside lining to make it easier to put on & take off. I will only use for running on cold windy days. Inside pocket has a small hole for routing earphone cord through which is cool. I have purchased LL Bean clothing for years and it is top notch quality and they do stand behind all their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VassalboroPhil Great as a layer, or as summer outerwear
This is the second similar vest I have had from Bean's, and I like the snug fit, warm materials, and in the summer, the wind/water shedding properties. I wore it downhill skiing two days ago, as the second layer (of several), and it fit well and added real warmth! In summer, it will be a major piece for cool days camping.
