Rated 5 out of 5áby LindyLou12 Awesome Warmth for Small Packable Vest
I ordered this in black before we took a trip overseas for Spring Break in March. Now, most people go south for Spring Break, but we went to Spain. Let me tell you that this vest which packs into its own pocket is a must have. I stayed warm and toasty. The down really does its job of holding in the heat. I tend to wear a size 6 In most women's clothes, and I was glad that I ordered an extra small. I believe that a small would have swallowed me. I was concerned about the length, but once it arrived,I found that I was very pleased and comfortable with what looked like a too short vest on the website. It was well worth the $99 I spent for it. I expect to be wearing this for years to come. Go for it, you will love this lightweight but extremely warm vest!

Rated 3 out of 5áby BeanFanOH Great Vest if Not for the Huge Armholes
I really wanted to love this vest. I admired it online for weeks and finally ordered it. I am a size 4-6, so ordered the small and extra small to try. The vest is of nice quality, not too puffy, and with inside and outside pockets. Loved the colors on the green and blue vests.
Unfortunately, I just couldn't get past the armholes. I would have liked the small vest with the armholes on the extra small. I understand the armholes need to allow movement, but I literally could have put two arms in each armhole and still had room for movement. The extra material near the front of the armhole bunches out a bit, too. If you have smaller/thinner arms, this might not be the vest for you.

I never thought I would look good in this type of vest, but after getting this one, it was sheer happiness for me. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5áby JamersRN Love this vest!
I purchased this vest to use as a "layer" for the erratic spring weather in the Eastern Sierra's. Temps varried from 22F to 74F & the vest performed perfectly! Nicely tailored, slightly lower in the back, high quality zippers, nicely sized "stow" bag built into the vest. Sizing was perfect. I am 5'6" 160# with weight evenly distributed. Typically wear between a 10 & 12 top. The Medium fits beautifully. The arm holes are gracious to allow full shoulder/arm motion. I used this as an added layer while fly fishing without any issues. Great product! Would love more color selection...

This is a perfect vest for travel - packs down perfectly. Kept me warm on the East Coast in 60 degrees, Runs big. Love the flash of red.

Rated 5 out of 5áby lovescleveland Lovely shape, perfect weight for travel, warmth.
Others noted this vest was generous in size, so I ordered a medium, though I often wear a large. Its a perfect fit from hips to neckline.
The armhole binding color does not quite match the blue color I ordered; however its a stretchy fabric which gives a neat appearance to the armhole - the color match could be improved a bit. A nice surprise is two inside hidden pockets - one with a zipper. Overall excellent quality. Also the bright soft green lining is a nice compliment to the blue outer.
I ordered two sizes to be sure I got the right fit. I kept the other and will give it to my daughter for her birthday,

Rated 4 out of 5áby nightgale a few other thoughts
The red is glaring neon, why? Even in the black I eventually chose, I am reluctant to have that fire color peeking out, as it seems unfeminine.
I love bold colors, sure, but this red is ridiculous. Prevented me getting the red jacket, just too much unless you're a guy or under 30.
The LLB logo on front above hem is white thread on the black. Are we getting a bit "Polo"-ish with our logos? I don't mind an external logo, but make it more subtle, gray or gold or even a thread color contrast that is interesting. But this is just distracting and so looks tacky, IMO.
Many people say this vest runs large. I did not find that so. I'm an XL, it fit fine, and slightly too tight in the bust.

Rated 5 out of 5áby PetiteFlower Love it! Functional and hip.
Great fit - enough room, but slender profile without feeling tight. Looks very current. Red pop of color on the black vest is very nice. Really love it & may get additional colors since it doesn't look like your typical oversized poofy down vest - it's feminine yet warm.

This is a very scrunch-able but warm vest, well made, fits petite 2-4 nicely, and came in a great blue color. I'm very pleased with it.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Chicpea Vest too large
I wear a small in LLBean clothes consistently. This vest seemed to be nice weight but the small was very big and the extra small had sold out.
