Rated 5 out of 5 by BrazilOliver Good choice
Love the zippered pockets, lining, hood. 5'8" 160 lbs. I take a large and there is room for a sweatshirt under this. Not tight in the tummy which is exactly how I like it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DivineMissM Very disappointed.
This looked very neat and trim on the model, but out of the package it was a baggy, wrinkled mess. Very weird fit ... I sized up to allow for layering. Even without a sweater underneath, it was tight in the bust and really wide at the hips. Because the lining wasn't dyed to match and very light in color, it looked funny and sloppy. Also, the lining hung dangerously close to the edge of the garment in places ... with wear, it would just be a matter of time before it hung below the vest. The armholes weren't turned in and hemmed but edged with rather thin edging that puckered the material in a few places. The hood, when up, covered my face. I felt that if I were wearing a name tag, someone would be asking me what aisle the pliers were on. I did so love the deep red color, I really hated to return it, especially with so many positive reviews.

Rated 4 out of 5 by VintageVenango DON'T LIKE THE HOOD
This seemed like a very nice vest if you're looking for a hood. Once I tried it on, I knew the hood would annoy me and keep me from wearing the vest. The hood didn't lie flat on my back but hung in a clump. Had there been no hood, I would have definitely kept the vest. The color, deep teal, was beautiful, and I hated to part with it. I also liked the soft "puppy fur" lining and zippered pockets. I'm 5' 1", 145 lbs. The medium petite was a good fit.

I love vests; I own too many of them... but I use them all... I wear them all the time to stay warm in our older home with interesting heating features. This vest is also great as an outdoor layer. I LOVE that this vest has ZIPPERED pockets so things don't fall out! I wish it had an interior pocket too... and I wish the colors were a bit more neutral. I bought the gray, and might have gotten a second one except none of the colors were compatible with my everyday wardrobe. The hood fits great. The vest is not too bulky, but cozy warm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by annathabug vest for mountain home
I was looking for a vest that would keep me warm but didn't look like something that could only be worn in the winter time. This was perfect for the cool morning in the mountains. I ordered this only 2 days ago so the shipping was lightning fast. I was surprised at how ultra soft and smooth the inside lining was. The hood is perfect as well because it has no strings and is elastic. It fits my head perfectly and I know it won't slip off.
The only thing that bothered me is that when I wear it, I don't have much shape to my waist. I look boxy and wide but who cares if it keeps you warm and enables me to move around without a bulky coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TexasMati Great vest with soft lining
I purchased this vest for those "in between days." I love it. The lining is incredibly soft so it feels good on and the vest is light yet warm when needed.
