Rated 5 out of 5áby dskRN Packaway vest
I really like this vest. The plum color is a dark neutral and the charcoal trim looks great. The little rubber-tipped zipper pulls on the pockets and front are easy to use if wearing gloves. It seems my neck is always cold so the raised collar is excellent for me. If unzipped a little, the collar folds down nicely and stays there. This is a very functional wardrobe piece as it can be used alone for chilly or windy weather, in the house on cold days, or as a layer under a rain jacket or winter coat. I am 5'5", 140 lbs, have a straight shape, and the medium is a roomy fit. Stuffing it into it's own pocket was not hard to do and is perfect for a backpack or carry-on luggage travel.

Rated 4 out of 5áby thinolderlady does the job
This would be 5 stars with a 2 way zipper & a nylon hood in the collar. I have to unzip to sit - a pain. I think this is overpriced as is.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Blackhillsandvalleys Loving this vest and LL Bean
Gosh, once again LL Bean comes through with a quality product, service and shipping. This vest is style, warmth, color and size. At 5'9" and 135 pounds, I bought the Medium, which has just enough room to let me layer and is not constricting. For a tight fit, I would need a small. Purchased the violet blue color and thought it more of a purple than a blue, but like it and it will go with blue, gray, black and more. Love the contrasting edging on the armholes. I can expect this vest to last for years to come. LL Bean you are consistent and here to stay. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5áby curleygirl Very good fit, lightweight, great alone or layered
Purchased this vest on sale with intent to use in the early to mid spring, however since temps plummeted to single digits have found it great for layering under a winter coat. I am 5'5" and weigh 140 lbs. I got a misses medium and the fit is perfect. Very lightweight and comfortable. I believe I will get a lot of use from this item! Cayenne color is very pretty and flattering.

Rated 3 out of 5áby SChicagoLLBeanShopper Great vest, but too short
I love the weight & way this vest is made! However, it's too short. And not available in "tall". I'll be returning.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Lions Super light weight
Love this vest. Attractive, semi fitted, ultra light and compact. Versatile to wear on own or as a layer. Bright green is really bright. I've been wearing it constantly indoors and out. Only complaint is the price. Will probably buy another despite price.

Rated 5 out of 5áby lildudesmom Excellent Vest
I ordered in the pine blue, I love the color. I use it for walking and exercising outside. It provides warmth without bulk. The fit is good, roomy enough to wear layers beneath but not too big with only my long sleeve dry fit.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Seminole88 Warmth Without Bulk
The vest is comfortably warm over a turtleneck sweater or flannel shirt. I found the size and fit were as advertised. Since it isn't bulky, it fits under a windbreaker. Just washed for the first time, and it came out looking like new.

Rated 5 out of 5áby mtbjane Versatile vest
I purchased the regular xs in plum. For sizing reference, I am 5'2", 130 lbs and 32D. I did not order the petite sizing since I like my vests on the longer side. It is a beautiful fit which allows for light layering.
This vest is lovely. The weight is light, yet it keeps you warm. I have not used this vest for outdoor activities such as mountain biking since it does not breathe well. I mainly use this vest for everyday use and it is great for keeping warm.
I do wear this vest under blazers for warmth and a stylish look. I have the Donegal Tweed Blazer in Charcoal. I wear the plum vest
over the stretch Poplin shirt in the flag blue stripes with the Donegal Blazer. The plum vest is also beautiful under a black leather jacket!

Rated 4 out of 5áby funkymomof2 Needs a two-way zipper
I love this vest. It is the perfect weight, and the fit is excellent. I love that it isn't short and boxy like many vests and it isn't bulky. Because of the nice length, a two-way zipper would make it perfect and I would buy more in the other colors. When I sit it bunches all up. A two-way zipper would make it comfortable for driving, sitting, and general all day wear.
