The Story

The Barbour Lowerdale Gilet is perfectly weighted for brisk fall days, yet light enough to layer under a jacket should the weather take a turn for the worse. The quilted shell fabric is backed by a polyamide lining and a warm Polarfleece® collar lining. Outside, there are two studded lower pockets and convenient side adjusters. Dark orange is Orvis-exclusive colorway.

Polyester shell, trim, and insulation. Nylon lining. Washable. Imported.

Sizes S(34-36), M(38-40), L(42-44), XL(46-48), XXL(50-52); about 27" long in size large.
For best fit, order one size up from your regular size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good looking vest Vest is well made and looks great. One thing I would mention is that it is sized down. I usually take a large, which matches the size chart, but a friend told me his was sized small. I went with a XL which fits great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mislabeled Sizing I purchased a XXL and returned it. Sizing was way , way off. I have been a customer of Orvis since the late 80's and do not understand if so many customers complain about the sizing, why does Orvis still mislabel the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice but very small Really liked the item out of the bag. Although I ordered an XXL (my usual Barbour size) this was at best a medium or large - way too small. Too bad I had to return the vest.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful garment but some major practical miscues Just received mine. After reading the reviews, I ordered two sizes larger than usual (the website does advise to order one size up - but I would recommend two sizes) and it fits fine. We've had a cold snap here so I haven't had a chance to give it a field test, so I'll limit my comments to aesthetics only. Pros: love the high collar and snap, and the brown detailing give this a classic look you expect from Barbour. I bought the orange to use when walking the dogs at dusk. Its color stands out without looking like a traffic cone. I appreciate the two button pockets in front and the interior pocket on the left side. Cons: it does fit a little 'boxy', I'm hoping that will change with wear. My main concern is being able to see daylight through some of the seams! You want a vest to keep you warm, and those holes mean wind will also get through, making this an early fall/late spring wardrobe item, with limited practical use. If you plan to wear a thick shirt or sweatshirt under it, better order 3x your usual size! I really wanted to love this vest. I do like it, but for the money, I think this isn't a practical purchase, given the sizing issue and the...errr.. extra ventilation (!) it provides. Orvis customer service is always top notch.
