Rated 5 out of 5 by TravelAround Comfortable, light weight, good fit.
Purchased for a future trip. Even though I live in North Florida I have gotten a lot of use out of this vest during a winter season that has dropped into the lower 30's many times. I get cold easily, but this vest keeps my body warm while out on our walks. It fits well over other fleece tops. The stand up collar zips all the way up, but does not bind or rub my neck. When the North wind blows there is even room to tuck my chin into the collar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mwspoon Greatest Ever Ascent Vest and Jacket >
I was seraching for a light but warmer jacket and vest for my trip to Vegas for New Years. Read tons of reviews (thanks by the way) that
helped me make may choice> I'm 5'1 and have a tummy I weight about 200 most of my weight in the tummy and a little bum short waist too ordered XL purple peittie and L Dk Cay reg ,seizes were limited because the Ascent items are hot > The the XLp fit really needed XL reg would have been longer No huge deal breaker for me . I'm sending back the L vest ( too tight on the tummy# lol . Temps were in the low 30's (Vegas) also got the Ascent jacket XL gunmetal reg perfect roomy for layering best buy, washed like a dream> > Also returned home to -4 degree temps in Cleveland layered on Long sleeves under still wearing. I'm a freeze baby if your driving perfect, I recommend Vest and Jacket >

Rated 3 out of 5 by chime good vest but...
This vest is well made, a good fit, comfy but it is extremely thin with little insulation, so little that you might think there was none. It is ok to wear inside or on a warm night but really not up to keeping you very warm. More like the weight of one of those thin dress sweaters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LifeLongBeaner2 Great lightweight vest!
Love the blue pine color. Love the fit. Love the style. Love that pet hair doesn't cling to it like the fleece vests do. Wish it had just a tad more loft but great layer and will be fantastic for packing for hikes. Will order another for sure and will give the jacket a try, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RubiRed21 Love it!
I bought this first in September 2013. Went down to NYC from CT on a fall day with my sweater underneath. Was very warm but not overly warm. I live in CT and we have had three snow storms since December 2013 and I love wearing my vest. I wear it with my sweater from LLBean and it keeps me warm. I am petite 5ft 140lbs but I purchased the misses large. I like the length and it gives me some room so I don't feel stuffed into the vest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by activeoutdoorsylady terrific vest
a necessary piece for active people. The warmth in relation to the thinness is truly amazing! I use my vest under coats when the weather really gets cold, and just over a flannel shirt when it is mild. I have several colors. Am 5'6", 135 lbs - have the M

Rated 3 out of 5 by LLBeanFanlady Very nice vest
if only the outer shell is better quality, in one week it start to get pill balls
otherwise it meets the description and more. Reluctantly i returned it, because for the price i would like it to last a little longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snoozieqz My Favorite Vest Ever
I wear this vest all the time. It's a great layering piece because it's so thin, but warm at the same time. It's much more flattering than my fleece vests and my other bulky down vests. I wish I had another one or two, but they're all sold out in medium.

Lightweight, warm and comfortable....I am 5' 7" but shortwaisted, and the Petite was perfect. ONLY WISH is that it was not so expensive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cjejlj perfect vest
this vest was exactly what I wanted. It is light, not puffy, the fit is great not too tight, just right. my only surprise was the color, I thought was going to be red it is actually more of an orange.
