Nice Vest -
By: StickII from Dallas, TX
Very pleased with this vest. Warm, not bulky and packs small in a day pack. The pockets are a bit small for my hands, that is my only complaint. The only thing I would add would be the ability to pack the vest into its on pocket like the jacket. The large fits me just right.

I bought this vest to wear under my Orvis field coat. I wanted something warm, light and close fitting. I prefer vests because they do not restrict my arm movement. This vest satisfies on all counts. I wore it today in high 20's temps and it worked perfectly as an insulating layer. Contrary to another reviewer, I believe the vest is actually quite handsome on its own. When purchasing, keep in mind that it has the usual generous Orvis fit.

Useful but not pretty -
By: Vappy from Baltimore, MD
This vest would work perfectly if you're looking for something to fit easily under your jacket and keep you very warm. This fit is a little short which is favorable under a jacket but to wear just with a shirt looks odd (at least for me, I am 6'1" 190lbs). I was looking for something I could wear without and coat and this wasn't it,so I ended up returning it.

Added the vest to the similar jacket already owned. Looks good. Warm!!
Sizing strange -
A lightweight and light weather vest with good looks. Sizing is strange though. I am large medium or small large (40 Regular jacket who can sometimes fit in a 38) but the medium size vest was too large and they did not offer a small. Very disappointing.

This vest does a great job as one of the layers on a cold day. Light as a feather and retains body warmth. Wore it under a sweater and light field jacket and was totally comfortable on a very raw day in the field.
