Rated 5 out of 5 by codysmama Love it!
I just love this vest. Its so cute, and very warm! I ordered the gray, thinking is just take my chances with the down showing through, but with the gray it's hardly noticeable. You really have to look hard. So far I've not had any issues with the down coming out through the fabric, but my son doesn't wear his daily, so that might come with time. Anyway, I think it's a great vest! I went a size up too, my son is 8 and I bought the 10/12. I figured it's an outer layer anyway and I wanted to get at least this and next year out of it since it is a bit expensive. Well, not in the scheme of things, but as a children's item since the grow so quickly. The larger size worked great for us!

Rated 1 out of 5 by nazjak DO Not Buy
I bought this about a month ago for my son, at first we both we liked it but as time went by, the feathers come out on their own and he looks like he is always shedding. My car looks like I have a pet in the backseat and its that jacket. Total waste of $. I have to get him another winter coat. Since it was LL Bean, I assumed the quality would be great, boy was I wrong.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Wmass413 Red looks dirty
Received the vest in red and everything looked great until we looked closer and the vest appeared dirty. We returned for same item and the second one looked dirty too. Turns out it is the dark down feathers inside the jacket showing thru the red fabric. It made it look like the whole vest was dirty. We returned and ordered the gray vest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lumberjohn Quality vest
I ordered this vest in the red for my 9 year old son. While you can see some telegraphing of the down through the red fabric it is not drastic and no big deal to me. The quality is very good compared to what you can find in some high end stores for the same price that don't compare to this vest in quality. this vest is a buy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by octoberswirl Only one complaint
I ordered this vest for my son (in red). I love everything about it except you can see thru the red outer shell, or at least that what it looks like. It appears to be the feathers from the down, but when I tried to move the feathers they didn't move. When I looked at it closer it almost appears as though it's randomly stained all over, even though from a distance it looks like feathers. Either way I don't like the look, if it were for me I would send it back, but my son does not seem to care so we are keeping it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lucky717 Red Down Vest
I just received this down vest i purchased for my Grandson
Nice vest however the down must be black or grey it shows
up horribly as if the vest had dirt stains on it
I am sending it back and ordering the gunmetal gray hopefully
it won/t have same issue or it will also go back
Its a shame because it is a nice vest

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanKidsMom Fabulous solid color vest!
I purchased the solid navy vest with the orange fleece inside and the colors are perfect! I ordered a size larger than my son is to get a few years out of it and we both love it. I find vests work well a bit large anyway with layers under them. Great color combination, great quality, cozy and warm too.
