Rated 2 out of 5áby Mike41 not warm enough
Very little insulation.
I wear this in chilly rooms around the house.
It is definitely NOT worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5áby llvincebean comfortable and good looking
this is the 4th packaway vest i have purchased. i find it works great as a layer in cold weather and by itself in cool weather with just a thermal underneath. the only negative with this particular vest is the material feels stiffer than my other vests but i still like it.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Hawkguy Surprisingly warm!
At first upon receiving this vest I thought I would be dissapointed because it looked to be thicker than it actually is but it is surprisingly warm and a great layer either under a coat or over say a fleece, and very stylish as well! I've found that XL regular is the size that all of LL Beans outerwear fits for me. I'm 6'1, 215 lbs, with a shorter torso than legs. My new favorite vest though. Bye bye fleece vests.

The lightweight and non-bulky material of the vest makes this great for layering or active wear. My core was kept warm and dry when the conditions were mid-40s F and rain.
No issues with the sizing.

This is a nice vest but does not have enough insulation to keep you warm.

Rated 5 out of 5áby normand802 warmth without bulk
This is a nice vest for chilly days when bulky clothing is an issue. I especially like it when I play golf early morning. It's light and allows freedom of mobility. I haven't washed it so can't verify condition after a wash but usually anything with fiber fill can be fluffed up nicely in the No Heat cycle of the dryer with a tennis ball (or 2) in the tub with it. I really like this vest for short periods outside on a cool (not cold) day. Can also be worn under a light jacket for extra warmth. Hope this helps.

Rated 2 out of 5áby VanWilder2 Not very warm
Bought this vest a year ago as a lightweight winter vest.
Pros-it is light, windproof, fits great, good pockets, and is very comfortable.
But-it is not very warm. Mine has spots where there is no insulation between the outer and inner shell. I can feel the insulation in some spots, in others there is nothing. Held it up to a very strong light and you can see at least half of the vest has no insulation.
Explains why it is not real warm
Kept it anyway as a cooler weather/windproof vest as that works.
Might get another if the insulation thing gets fixed.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Appyfive Attractive looking vest but not very warm
The vest is very attractive looking but the Primaloft is too thin offer much warmth. After wearing it a few times I have gone back to my down vest for a warmer layer at colder temperatures.
The three pockets on the chest and sides are sized well and easy to zip up with the attached pull cords. An excellent feature to keep items safely secured.
The elastic pull along the bottom of the garment is also useful to keep what little warmth there is intact.
The nylon material feels comfortable to the skin and I will probably wear the vest on cool summer and early fall days only.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Mongoose123 Great color but poor fit
A light, thin, portable, warm, and well-fitting vest was what I expected from LL Bean. The vest delivers on thin and light but not warm and well-fitting. The vest is not warm like a layer of down would be nor does it fit well in the areas around/under the arms. A bit of a diappointment.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Acemoose Not That Warm....but......
It is thin, it is quilted and it is not that warm (for Winter anyway) BUT it works FINE when I put it on over a sweater, then layer my windbreaker and then a jacket over it. THEN I am warm and comfy and -- Full Speed Ahead, Wind be darned -- I can handle 14 degrees Out There at the Wild Bus Stop, with no problems whatsoever..
