This is the greatest vest. It's wind resistant, light as a feather, and the perfect weightin changeable weather. Fits beautifully and zipper rides smoothly. Loveit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by marymath my second vest
The first purchase, a wine colored one, was just perfect...looked nice, lightweight but warm (Texas climate) and I decided I needed a black one. As I expected, it's exactly right for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NowandZen Light weight and stylish
This is my 2nd packaway vest. This is not just your average vest. The other one I have is pretty worn after years of "grab and go" wear. Women's no longer availabe in dark cayenne, so I ordered the blue pine. Great for layering over heavier shirts and fleece wear. Provides that extra layer of comfort and protection on windy days. Great for warmer days when I just want a little cover for walking my dog. Love love love it.

ordered this vest for a little added warmth in springtime biking and hiking, as a layer with a windproof fleece...very happy with it, comfortable, extremely lightweight and just enough warmth on chilly days if layered appropriately, really like the pink color - adds to being visible while biking :).

This vest is lightweight, nicely shaped, gives a gentle layer of warmth, and comes in gorgeous colors. It washes beautifully, just damp-drying on gentle. I bought 3 colors this winter. LLBean: there is one way to make this vest absolutely perfect - add a thin knitted or woven collar lining. When I wear this on brisk walks and sweat a little, the vest material in back of my neck sticks to me and it's not pleasant. I tried to get by this by wearing a cotton scarf tucked inside the back of the collar but it's too bulky that way. Just a suggestion for the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Austex75 Great little vest
Living in Central Texas, I don't have much use for cold weather clothes. This vest is perfect for walks, going to the store or staying warm inside when it is a little cooler. If it ever gets cold again, I'll use it under a jacket and will definitely take it along on trips. I wish it came in some of the colors that are male only. I'd buy another one.

I have several of these vests in different colors. They are lightweight and amazingly warm. I love the three zippered pockets. The only improvement might be a two-way zipper in front.

Rated 5 out of 5 by UpNorthAdventurer Great for Travel
This is my second packaway vest. I bought one two years ago and take it every time I travel. It's light, takes up little room in your suitcase, and is great for those days that are a little chilly. Also great to wear on the airplane. It fits exactly as promised.

This vest will be handy as a travel item. It does run large. I ordered a medium, and probably could have managed a small (I am basically a medium frame). At least this way, I will have no problem layering under it. It you are in between small and medium, order down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuckyStrike Warm but lightweight!
I bought this vest along with the matching coat for a trip to colder climates. Between them, they should provide the layers I need. I really like how lightweight and collasible they are. They really do fit inside one of their pockets. So either or both can go along in a tote. I was surprised at the shape as I have other LLBean items that are not as fitted. I won't know how warm they are until I really test them in cold weather. The vest washed beautifully, dried quickly, and lost its packing wrinkles in the process. Great purchase! I normally wear a size medium except in inexpensive items when a large might be necessary. But LLBean clothes run large, so I bought a small in the vest and it fits perfectly. I bought a medium in the coat so it would fit over other layers. Perfect fit also! I bought black in both and it is a true black, not greenish or brownish.
