Rated 1 out of 5 by SoHOJo Fashion not Function
I expected something that would actually provide warmth. Wore in on a 50+ degrees day and got nothing.
So if you want to make a fashion statement, fine. If you want something that is actually warm, don't purchase this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clew Awesome vest
I love this vest! I just ordered it in a second color. It is lightweight but warm. One thing I love about it is that I can wear it under a sweatshirt for a close layer. I am in Alaska, and we need layers when fishing or hiking etc. it isn't too bulky, but makes a definite difference! And I love the weight of it all by itself on cool days for running errands.

Rated 3 out of 5 by northbass Didn't work for me...
The vest didn't work for me, I'm apple shaped and it was a tad to tight across the chest, which caused it to bell out way too much, making my waist and hips look bigger than they are. Now with that said it would probably be cute on some one more pear shaped. I ordered the blue and the color is beautiful, and the vest feels well made, just didn't work for me.
Wish Bean offered a larger selection of plus size clothes....I'm forced to often shop elsewhere because of the lack of plus size's to choose from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Glistar Great lightweight vest
I have really enjoyed this vest the past winter and have had friends wear it and like it as much as I do. It is a lightweight, no fuss vest that sits close to the body, retaining some of my shape. It isn't the warmest of vests, a big puffy one would probably serve you better for warmth, but this vest ticks all the boxes for me.
The vest is high LL Bean quality where the stitching on the stitched side has not frayed despite having washed it and being roughly packed into suitcases. It feels and performs the same as the day I got it.
And although it is reversible, I almost never turn it onto the smooth side b/c it's not very pretty or flattering. It's nice having the option, but I could never imagine why I would ever do so.

I have already recommended this vest to 2 friends. I got the blue on blue, and am very pleased with it. It is light, but warn. This is excellent for spring, and fall

Rated 5 out of 5 by DebsinSanDiego Light yet warm - travel friendly
another exceptional light, yet warm, vest. I am taking this to Germany - should work well. Easy to scrunch down in a backpack.
Zippers worked fine for me. We'll see with the test of time.
It would be even better if the vest had a hood zipped in the neck area.

Rated 3 out of 5 by woolspinner roomy and nice color
The thread used for quilting the front started fraying and pilling right away. Within a few days the vest looks older and worn. The zipper is the small tooth type and hard to use. It also catches the inside thinner fabric and is hard to zip up and down. The color is nice and the vest is roomy. It isn't very warm like the other vest that I ordered. It's reversible but the inside fabric is a lining fabric and doesn't look good as an outside fabric. It's too thin. I wouldn't order this reversible vest again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lyzar Light vest for spring and fall
This is a light vest to replace the heavy down vest that I love to wear in winter. I like the green colors. It fits well. I wear 14/16, the XL is generous and not too big.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nightgale Nice Gift
I sent this vest to my sister for her b-day, in blue (her eyes are that color). She is a size small, athletic and thin.
She said it fits perfectly and she wears it all the time. It's versatile, sporty, yet attractive enough for nicer occasions.
A terrific vest, quilting is classy, a good gift for an active person, if you're sure of her size.
