Why We Love It
Whether you’re an avid sportsman or a student of exceptional style, you’ll appreciate the versatile design of this men’s sweater vest. Crafted of soft, all-condition Merino wool with all-cotton shoulder patches, this sweater takes its cues from pullovers worn by British S.A.S. Commandos during World War II. And while it’s a natural for outdoor layering, it cleans up perfectly for an evening out.
Fabric & Care
- Knit from warm, durable 21 oz. 100% Merino lambswool.
- 100% cotton shoulder patches add style – and ensure long wear.
- Handwash and dry flat, or dry clean.
- Naturally breathable Merino wool wicks moisture to keep skin comfortable.
- V-Neck pullover styling that’s great for layering.
- Ideal for outdoorsmen – but versatile enough for an evening out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DangerClose from Great Brown Vest Great vest. First one I got had a hole in the collar. Customer service was great, sent a replacement in no time. Otherwise, quality is good and looks great with casual and not so casual clothing. It's warm too. Oh yes, It's not really Deep Woods Green. There are a few teeny weeny green threads in the material, but is really Deep Woods Brown. Not a problem though. It goes with most everything I've got. I like it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by antelope306 from Warmest vest I own I also bought the commando sweater and both are very warm. I own several other v-neck sweater vests but they are more like golf clothing. This one is made for freezing weather when you don't want to keep your coat buttoned up outside but don't want to roast when you go inside like you would with a full sweater on. I also like the masculine military style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by buckybadgerfan from Commando Sweater Vest 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 5 out of 5 by Dogwater from Nice Sweater 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 SGW226 from Excellent! My husband requested this vest for Christmas and he loves it! It is very warm and just right for him to wear to work. It is not as "army green" as it appears in the picture but is more greenish-brown but still a great color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bema41 from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tomcan from 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.
