Rated 2 out of 5 by Grayhair Not a Good Fit
This sweater is well made and should last for many years, but the fit is unsatisfactory. The woven cloth patches at the shoulders stand up above the shoulder rather than conforming to the natural shoulder. This makes it look as if the sweater just doesn't fit. I had to return it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1hambone Too small
The quality is very good but it is tight for a Large. I am exchanging it for a size larger. Large has always been just right for me. I hope I don't swim in it. This my first exchange - we'll see.

I'm 6'4" 200 lbs. and the XL fits perfectly. Plenty long and not too wide.
It fits like a Large-Tall usually does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tomcan Excellent vest for wear under top layer
I wear this under full zip sweaters or button up sweaters and jackets. The most impressive aspect is it doesn't pill like most sweaters.Not having to use a fabric comb to remove the pills is very important to me.

Nice sweater, looking forward to using it as a winter layering garment. I am 6 ft and 195, the XL fit perfect. Can't comment on shrinking as I have not washed it yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1207 very warm vest....good for Chgo weather
Got this vest as a gift for my husband, a shorter guy. Small fit great. Soft and nice looking. Blue matches many of his work trousers and shirts (dressy casual type.) He really liked it.

nice thick tank top/vest. very warm, fits a bit snugger than most LLB size med, but ideal for a layer under a coat.

It wasn't as dark blue as it looked in the catalog. The surface is rougher than I would like. Haven't worn it yet, may return it

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bema41 Great Birthday Gift
The Commando Vest was the correct size, well made and it was delivered in time for my husbands birthday. My husband has purchased many items from LL Bean but this was my first time, Needless to say you have a customer. The quality of the vest is high and the size is just what was stated . My husband is a big man so I am glad there will be NO returns which happens a lot. The price was good, I am really pleased with my purchase and LL Bean.
