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.

LOVE this vest! Great for going out on errands or use as a light layer when out snowshoeing or walking. SO happy I ordered this! Got it in the raspberry color - enjoying it!

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by katydidRN Spring point vest
I ordered this item because I wanted a light weight, hooded, wind resistant vest that also had some water resistance. Needless to say this vest fits the bill perfectly. I wear it alone and also under a none hooded LL Bean coat I have ( Barn Coat ) as extra layer. I would give it five stars if the hood had tie closure. If I could pick 4.5 stars I would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LovesSales One of the BEST buys ever!
Ordered several of these for gifts and the girls loved the vests! So, ordered one for myself. It is AWESOME! Wear it inside on chilly days and can easily run outside wearing it and it keeps me warm. It is nearly weightless, but VERY comfortable. An LL Bean Best Buy in my opinion :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by tennis40love Sporty Vest
Ordered this vest in the Star Thistle, size L. Vest arrived today and I was delighted with the colour - very soft and flattering. The lining is soft and not the least bit heavy. The lining colour contrasts nicely with the shade of the vest. I really should have ordered the medium as the sizing is quite generous especially in the hip and bust areas. Even with a sweater underneath it would still be too roomy for me. I like the colour and style so much I am sending back the size L and have already ordered the medium. I think this will be a great 3 season vest.

I live in CA and I wanted something to wear on walks at the beach. This vest is perfect on windy days. I can put the hood up to protect my ears and it keeps me warm but not overheating my body. The fit is perfect, I love it!
