Rated 5 out of 5 by GregFromBuffalo Perfect
I bought this vest for hunting and fishing throughout the winter in upstate New York. I am 6'4 200 lbs and ordered a large-tall and the size is perfect to fit a wool flannel and a long sleeve shirt underneath. The vest is not too bulky and the wool is very thick. The vest is very well made and seems like it will last a very long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gekim Wool, the best fiber going.
As an outdoorsman, what can I say about such a great product. Nice generous fit, the buttons are good size and easy to use. Just the right amount of pockets. The hand warmer pockets are just right, the right amount of warmth for bow hunting, and it will great for layering when the weather gets much colder. I bought the gray vest, looks good to dress up your outfit when you are going out. In this case old school rules. Wool is still the best.

Quite simply, my favorite article of clothing. Warm. Lots of pockets. Well made in the old school way. Very functional. A pleasure to wear. Although not "stylish," it has a charm all its own and actually gets lots of compliments.

I purchased two of LL Bean Wool Vest. And I purchased two of Filson Wool vest. I returned the Filson. Simple reason, LL Beans was far heavier material, and had a more comfortable fit. I purchased the long version because I'm tall and large. The have a better form fitting for my height. LL Beans is a far far better value, regardless the price, because they will wear like iron

Rated 4 out of 5 by Woodsyfashionista Mighty fine vest!
I've owned the Northwoods Wool Vest for about a month now. The "5th" star might be there if I was in a position to speak to longevity.
I love this vest. It's very warm, unique, highly functional and rather dashing if I dare say.
The pockets are great, the buttons are fastened like a limpet in the breakers and the overall construction seems top notch..........love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by chipper84 good quality supple wool, well made
Exactly what I was looking for in a quality vest. Good fit, neat stitching, plenty of pockets, thick wool. The green color is a nice earthy tone. Cudos to LL Bean, again, for consistent quality!
The following is not a negative about the vest, just a fact of life, especially for mail-order garments: The crease at the top of the shoulders from being folded in packaging has not relaxed yet, will try steam iron. A bit frustrating, does not lay flat on top of the shoulders, hope ironing works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gourdbanjo A very nice vest
I found this wool vest to be comfortable, well constructed and very warm. If you are the kind of person who likes to carry stuff with you, this vest is ideal. Many pockets of various sizes make it easy to leave your daypack at home. The rear cargo (game) pocket is large enough to hold a wind or rain parka. With that combination, you're good to go in almost any weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by crypticgirl Country gentleman meets Country club....Great vest
I bought this vest for my husband - he looks amazing in vests. The price was almost prohibitive - very expensive for a casual vest. I bought the gray and when it arrived neither of us were disappointed! All of the pockets were so cool and not at all bulky. The vest looks amazing on - my husband could not wait to wear it. *The 'game' pocket across the back is very interesting. There is also a hidden inside pocket on one side. Love it! Great purchase! The best part is that he can wear it outdoors or over a great woven shirt and dress it up for date night.
