Rated 5 out of 5 by Maggy10 SO SOFT!
I love this vest! I got it in the deep red color, it's a beautiful shade of red. The vest is about waist length, looks very well made and the hood fits like it wouldn't get blown off my head in really bad windy weather. I think what I like most about this is the lining, it's SO soft and fuzzy! I'm sure once chilly Autumn gets here, this vest will keep me perfectly warm as I go on my morning walks. Very happy with my purchase, the sale price is excellent too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by luv2shop64 Either it fits or it doesn't
This is a nice weight vest. Was looking for something for those wet spring days. I just cant get LL Beans outerwear figured out. Either it fits or it doesn't. went by other reviews and went up a size and it was huge on me and did not look flattering at all. The bigger size seemed long also, went down over my backside. Not sure if I want to try a smaller size or not. I hope LL Bean comes to VT, because this is why I hate mail order...having to return :*(

Rated 5 out of 5 by SophiasGrammie Good value for the price
This is great to wear over a sweater for outdoor activities. The microfleece lining is divine! I would like a phone pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wantLLBeanstoreinDallasTX Windproof, soft, warm and cute!
This cute little vest is absolutely the very BEST in quality and is everything I wanted it to be. Great design with the attached hood, stretch trim, soft furry lining, and silky outer shell. I needed an extra layer to wear under my Winter coat, and this oh so softly lined vest is a perfect extra layer on cold, damp and windy days that we have even here in North Texas. I love this vest so much that I ordered 4 of them in blue, tan, olive and gray, and told my twin sister how wonderful they are, so she ordered 4 also in blue, tan, aqua and pink, too!! We both LOVE them so much that we gave them a nickname and call them "our little honeys" and wish we could wear them year round. I only wish I could have ordered them much sooner before the Misses size Large sold out in the colors that we wanted. This is the softest, most comfortable vest I have. We hope you continue to make this superior quality hooded vest in more colors such as Autumn colors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Schnarps Too tight
I ordered this vest in 2x and it was too tight for me in the hip area. Since this size usually fits me fine with LL Bean, sometimes even 1x, I can only conclude that in the Plus size this vest is not cut right, at least not for me. Everywhere else the vest fit OK but the hip tightness made it slightly uncomfortable to wear, especially considering that this is worn over a sweater etc. I would have loved to keep it because it would have been such a practical and nice looking piece (Teal color was pretty, too) but unfortunately I had to send it back.

I got the Gunmetal Gray vest in Regular Small. Nice, neutral color. Me: 5" 3', 115 lbs. When zippered, the vest fits rather close in the body, and it is kind of tight across the tummy when I sit down. But, since I intend to wear it mostly while dog walking, the close fit is not really a problem. It helps keep cold air from getting between me and the vest.
I also got a Petite Medium vest in Kelp Green #also a nice color# that fits more loosely for when I just want a layer to wear for low activity purposes indoors.
The vest is nicely constructed and provides warmth when layered with a sweatshirt. Outdoors, I wear a knit hat or ball cap under the hood. The elastic on the hood helps keep the hood in place. The zippered pockets are a plus. I'd like to get another vest in Deep Teal, but the color is out of stock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LovesSales Ordered even more of these! Everyone happy!
My third order for these awesome vests came after my friends noticed mine! Ordered 2 Khaki and 2 blue. Colors are true to the screen shot. Love, love the zippered pockets! Carry my car keys and my cell phone in the secure pockets. Total bought: 9 vests and 9 very happy people. By the way, the red is really cute too, my sis loves it!

Color: I ordered the atlantic blue. The color was flatter (if that is a description) than I expected. I thought it would be more vibrant. It is more of a smoky blue, but it is a color I like.
Fit: I wear a size 18/20, 45" chest/bust size D bra. I usually order a 2x when I am unsure of the fit because I like things loose/roomy. This does it for me! It is rather "boxy" as I saw described which I like. I have wider hips and this hangs well without feeling tight or looking like my jacket is too small. I can wear a sweater/sweatshirt/etc under it and feel comfortable. The arm holes are roomy and do not bind or feel tight in the least. I don't think they are too big. A size smaller would fit snug and be OK if you like things tighter. This fit is comfortable and warm. It's super cold here in the south right now and I am wearing it indoors to keep warm. Comfy!
I don't see any sagging lining. It is sewn neatly to the bottom of the vest. Outer material is like a windbreaker and inner lining is soft and touchable.
Overall, great lightweight jacket that will be perfect around the house on super cold days and for normal winter days in North Georgia. HAPPY :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by nkbostonfan Light weight, great shade of red
I really like this vest. I bought a med regular, I am 5'6 140lbs, slender build and love it over a shirt and as a layering piece. As for the hood, I think a snap or button closure would be great for the hood when it is windy.Infact, I also purchased one in blue for my mum and she loves it and was hinting at a red one as well. Maybe for Mother's Day. As a last thought, the 2 pockets are a good size, zippered and they are nicely hidden. Like another reviewer stated, I would have given it 5 stars if the hood a closure. I purchased these vests for Christmas 2013.
