Rated 5 out of 5 by SallieSue Great vest
Loved this vest so much that I bought it in another color also. It
Is perfect and very comfortable for spring days and for cooler days it is just right over a sweatshirt or sweater. I bought size PS as in most L.L.Bean clothing and it allow for lightweight sweater under it...not too snug since I weigh 118. I can see myself wearing them (bought two) year round and plan to take them to Alaska this summer to wear under a light-weight jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by happyshop love the vest
I have several LL Bean vests that I really like. This is no exception. True to size, nice tailoring. I LOVE the Dark Cayenne color. It is so rich. This is a slightly heavier than some others I own. it does pack away but if you are looking for super tiny pack away, this may not be it. Personally I will use it for travel because the sturdy construction looks like it will hold up to lots of wear. You will not be disappointed with this vest.

I really like this vest. The plum color is a dark neutral and the charcoal trim looks great. The little rubber-tipped zipper pulls on the pockets and front are easy to use if wearing gloves. It seems my neck is always cold so the raised collar is excellent for me. If unzipped a little, the collar folds down nicely and stays there. This is a very functional wardrobe piece as it can be used alone for chilly or windy weather, in the house on cold days, or as a layer under a rain jacket or winter coat. I am 5'5", 140 lbs, have a straight shape, and the medium is a roomy fit. Stuffing it into it's own pocket was not hard to do and is perfect for a backpack or carry-on luggage travel.

This would be 5 stars with a 2 way zipper & a nylon hood in the collar. I have to unzip to sit - a pain. I think this is overpriced as is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blackhillsandvalleys Loving this vest and LL Bean
Gosh, once again LL Bean comes through with a quality product, service and shipping. This vest is style, warmth, color and size. At 5'9" and 135 pounds, I bought the Medium, which has just enough room to let me layer and is not constricting. For a tight fit, I would need a small. Purchased the violet blue color and thought it more of a purple than a blue, but like it and it will go with blue, gray, black and more. Love the contrasting edging on the armholes. I can expect this vest to last for years to come. LL Bean you are consistent and here to stay. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by curleygirl Very good fit, lightweight, great alone or layered
Purchased this vest on sale with intent to use in the early to mid spring, however since temps plummeted to single digits have found it great for layering under a winter coat. I am 5'5" and weigh 140 lbs. I got a misses medium and the fit is perfect. Very lightweight and comfortable. I believe I will get a lot of use from this item! Cayenne color is very pretty and flattering.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SChicagoLLBeanShopper Great vest, but too short
I love the weight & way this vest is made! However, it's too short. And not available in "tall". I'll be returning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lions Super light weight
Love this vest. Attractive, semi fitted, ultra light and compact. Versatile to wear on own or as a layer. Bright green is really bright. I've been wearing it constantly indoors and out. Only complaint is the price. Will probably buy another despite price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lildudesmom Excellent Vest
I ordered in the pine blue, I love the color. I use it for walking and exercising outside. It provides warmth without bulk. The fit is good, roomy enough to wear layers beneath but not too big with only my long sleeve dry fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Seminole88 Warmth Without Bulk
The vest is comfortably warm over a turtleneck sweater or flannel shirt. I found the size and fit were as advertised. Since it isn't bulky, it fits under a windbreaker. Just washed for the first time, and it came out looking like new.
