    Yes to an inside pocket - 5/1/2015

    This is an update to the review I submitted 4/27/15. I've discovered that the vest DOES have an inside pocket! It is zippered and is concealed by a matching fabric flap. It is a deep pocket and easily holds my cell phone, 5C, with plenty of room to spare.

    As Expected - 4/27/2015

    I have other Orvis vests in this style and I like them very much. This vest is of a different material, (boiled wool), which I've not had before. The quality seems just as nice and I look forward to many warm years with it. I expected no different. I do wish it had and inside pocket.

    Excellent purchase - 3/19/2015

    Beautiful vest with superb quality. I bought it before going on a trip to Ireland. The weight was just right and it is the perfect garment to layer over a sweater (although probably too thick to wear under a coat or jacket). People have stopped me to ask me where I purchased it. It is certainly well worth the price, and I'm even considering getting the tweed version of it.

    As usual the product was well made and well appointed. I was a little surprised at the weight - heavier than i expected.

    Snappy and Warm - 11/17/2014
    By: from Long Island, NY

    It just arrived in the nick of time. The Polar Vortex is knocking at our door! I have had several folks ask where I got it. The wool is dense and warm. The cut is smart and covers the hips. The contrast of the leather trim and the navy blue fabric make it a crowd pleaser! I wear a 44 suit, and the large is a hair too large. I sense that when it comes home from the cleaners, the optimum size will be achieved via a bit of shrinkage.

    Amazing vest - 11/6/2014
    By: from Hartford, CT

    Stylish, warm, and useful. This vest has it all. Wore it when it was 40 degrees and didn't feel the temperature at all. At 6'2" and 300 lbs I was nervous it would be tight, but I can wear it over a sweater no problem.

    Great vest but not under - 11/4/2014
    By: from Bluffton SC

    This is not a vest to plan to layer. It is beautiful and well made. I think it might be the best looking vest I have ever worn. It is a thick wool with leather lining which has a very finished but slightly rugged look. It is a bit heavier than I thought it would be. You need the temp below 50 for it to stay comfortable. It is too bulky to put a coat over but there is plenty of room for a sweater under. I wear this every chance I get.
