Rated 5 out of 5 by wvntrains Vest perfect for biking.
I use this vest instead of a jacket for biking. Like the pockets, vent pockets, and the length of vest. I used previous write-up advice to purchase the next larger size; so the large fits correctly.

I bought this vest for running after dusk. I bought the hot pink color. It is bright, lightweight and reflective. It has zipper pockets which are nice to store keys and a cell phone. I ordered a medium. (I usually wear a small or medium.) The medium was very snug and I felt like I would not be comfortable wearing it to run in, so I exchanged it for a large. Other than the size, it is a nice addition to my running wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chick212 Superb vest
...with superb high visibility factor. Comfortable, easy to slip on and good insulation on cool windy nights. Plus, I know I will be SEEN.

Looks nice, but it's a Christmas present for my wife. Review coming thereafter.

I love the style and features of this vest! And yes it is quite fashionable for running gear! The pink has pleats in the back to give it a bit of flair! I usually wear an extra small in tops and I ordered a small that fit with extra room. I really love this vest!

I gave this 3 stars because of the size--it was way to tight and I always take a medium. With that being said ---I give the LLBean store in King of Prussia Pa 10 stars--I return the vest at this location without any problems. It was the first time I was in this store (1 hour drive) it was GREAT--sales people were on the floor but not in your space all the time. Very friendly (Sunday before Thanksgiving) Got a new guy when I checked out --I apologized for having a return plus buying something --he smiled and a person helping him said "That is Ok I will help him." Fantastic serves at this store--

Love this vest. I did read reviews before I bought saying that it ran small & ordered a size up than I normally wear with llbean & it fits perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gmt24 vest lasted me years, looking for another
I bought this same vest in a years earlier version, at least four years ago. I loved it. I just wanted a vest that was more windbreaker, with lots of pockets. To hold phone, keys, mp3, and anything else I brought a long.
It's been worn nearly daily as I jog a lot, so the right inner pocket is tearing (from much use). It is so hard to find something lightweight, with all the pockets, that isn't too snug. I am a petite person, and mine is white in a size small. That provided me with plenty of room to wear it over a sweatshirt on very cold days. On cold days the vest is enough to keep my torso warm, with long sleeve jogging top. The difference is boy the price sure went up and I don't see it in white.
But it is so well made, mine was, you'll get your money's worth. Normally I wear an extra small, but I sized up to a small to be able to wear it over sweatshirts or a fleece vest.

The sizing is off on this vest. Because a previous review said the vest runs small, I ordered a size up, but still can't even zip it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Edamommy Awesome vest but runs slim
Awesome vest but runs slim - I am not slim, ergo, I run. But, this vest would not zip up across my chest. I normally order an L in all things LL Bean, but this vest was super tight on me and I have to send it back. The reason I gave it 5 stars is because it is an awesome vest and I am completely disappointed that it did not fit. I love having zipped pockets, reflectors, and a light vest to run in all weather. I was hoping to wear it over t-shirts in the summer and thermals in the winter for the reflective strips and pockets. Please make it in larger sizes.
