Rated 5 out of 5 by natsfan Fabulous vest!
I just received this vest and am delighted. The bright blue is gorgeous and the lining is lively! It fits true to size. The vest is light as a feather and can be made more snug with the bottom bungies. The inside pocket is handy and the two side pockets are a generous size. Plus this vest is so stylish, I know it will be fun to wear! It seems perfect for travel.

I ordered this vest in preparation for my holiday to New Zealand and Australia this past April.
While in New Zealand, a cold front hit! Coldest day in 100 years! I wore this vest over a base layer and Merino wool top. Kept me fairly warm.
The reason for two stars is when I took the vest off, feathers were all over my black wool top. This keep happening - had to pluck (no pun intended) the feathers off my blouses after each wear.

I absolutely adore this vest. I was looking for something warm but not bulky. This fits the bill perfectly. It does run large. I am usually a M but I bought both the S and M and I returned the M because the S fit perfectly. I am 5'9 160" athletic, 34D, waist 29. Love it.

OH! this vest is terrific..just the very best..did happy dance with it..
My person I ordered it with, did a tremendous job helping me. One of the many wonderful ways of Bean staff.
The color is superior. The collar does not make your head bend but is quite nice..I chose the large though wear medium because I wanted to layer lots..I still have room..I do not feel like a stuff pig, but look slender with four layers under it..joral

Rated 5 out of 5 by llbeanershopaholic Very functional
Thanks to other reviews who thought this vest was too long, I ordered a L petite. I am a size 12, and 5'5" tall. The fit was perfect. It hit me mid-hip, it is roomy enough to wear over a medium weight jacket or sweater, or flannel. The material itself is almost soft and silky in feeling. I love the zippered pockets. It is also easy to pack into its nice inner stowaway pocket. So practical and functional. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gbowelch Warm and cozy
I received my black vest yesterday and I love it, its warm, not too bulky and will go with everything. I love the inside pocket that will hold a phone or iPod (that was a nice surprise). The fit is nice and tailored and its not at all bulky. I am 5'4 120 lbs and I got the small petite and its fits perfectly. Thank you LLBean for coming thru again - its 14' outside today! I am wearing this indoors today but I know I will use it under coats and on its own if it ever warms up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SunbeltGirl The Scrunch Down Vest is Beautiful!
Love the color, feel and look of this vest! I bought the dark fuchsia and it's a very rich vibrant color that will look awesome with blue or black jeans or basically any color pants.
I originally purchased it in a small which is what I wear in everything LLBean and it was way too big. The arm holes were too big and the vest was huge. As it turns out, I think they make them generous so you can layer lots of clothing under.
But, I live in the desert so I'll be putting a light weight turtle neck under it or my LL Bean Mountain Trail Merino Henley under it and it will be super in the winter.
Can't wait for cooler temps so I can wear this vest!! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by oboysmom Great vest
I love this vest. I wanted something to wear around on chilly days, mostly in my office. This fits the bill. It is very warm but the way is designed I don't feel like the stay puff marshmallow man. If I had once complaint it would I would like it a bit snugger through the waist. I'm a 5'10" hourglass shape I got the large. I didn't go down to the medium because I was concerned it would be too short in the torso and too tight across the chest. Even with that I still am giving it 5 stars, it's just that good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AuntieMJ Scrunch Down Vest is practical & fashionable
The scrunch down vest is very flattering (because of the directional quilting lines & the back hem line is curved & slightly longer) & warm. If you love vest, don't hesitate to purchase this one! Very feminine.
As to fit /size: I am 5'6", 145 lbs, 38.5" in bust. I usually wear a medium in LL Bean tops (large in coats so I have layering room). I currently have two: a medium petite & a medium regular. Love them both but I think the petite medium is a slightly better fit & still has plenty of room for a heavy sweater.
Thank you LL Bean for quality products & service! Love reading reviews before I purchase & appreciate all who take the time to review their purchases!
