    Women's L.L.Bean Upcountry Waxed Cotton Down Vest is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Waxed Cotton Vest I have several LLBean tops in the XL size so I was certain that a vest in an XL would fit just fine. The quality seemed to be good which is a real plus these days when so much clothing is so shoddy. And it looked beautiful. But when I tried it on, it was WAY too big at the top and WAY too small at the bottom. Did they accidentally send me a man's vest? I checked the tags. No. It was a woman's XL. I was very disappointed and sent it back that day. I don't really know what other size I could have ordered. BTW, I usually wear an XL top and a 12 or 14 bottom, so that makes it even weirder. I can imagine that this would be an even weirder fit on a pear-shaped woman (which is most women).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective zipper, tiny pockets, wrong color Strike one: faulty zipper. MAJOR production to get it hooked and unhooked, to the point of being considered defective. Strike two: teeny tiny pockets. I went to shove my hands in the side pockets and was dismayed that half of my hand was still sticking out. This is a cold-weather piece of clothing. I want functional pockets. Strike three: ordered the color loden, but was sent brown. In defense of whoever selected this item for me in the warehouse, the package had a "loden" sticker on it, but clearly it is brown. It's out! Sending it back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like my new vest. I like my new vest. I particularly like: (1) upper pockets that are handy and warm (2)dual zipper that can be opened from top & bottom I am 5’1, 100lb and size S is a perfect fit. I can wear sweater underneath comfortably, and because of its length, it keeps me toasty during my long walks. This vest is just what I expected. Except the color; it’s actually ‘ocher’ rather than khaki. I like it OK because it’s a rich color that goes with wider variety of colors. I have a LLBean short nylon down vest that I have been wearing for 25 years. Together they add joy to my daily walk in cold winter, fall and spring.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed This vest was perfect for my trip to Ireland. It held up to days of wear through "driving mist" and general dampness, punctuated by moments of sunshine. Never felt too warm and I never had a problem with it getting damp or soaked through. I'm not sure about the complaints about pocket size. You don't need to stretch your hand out in the warmer pockets, but rather ball them up a little to keep warm. The outside pockets were good for a cell phone in between photos, and the inside pocket was useful when I wanted to leave my purse behind but still carry a small wallet. Rather bulky for traveling, but I was usually wearing it rather than packing it, and it smushed pretty well in my suitcase for the trip home.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and cozy! This is a fantastic vest. Extremely warm and comfortable. It doesn't have as much shape as I would like (a little bit more of a waist would have been really nice) but it wasn't so boxy that I returned it - it does have a slight shape to it. I'm also tall (5'11"), so I was worried it would be too short, but it's not at all. If you want a more fitted vest, make sure you order a size down. I usually get a S, but ordered an XS so it would be a closer fit. This vest is VERY warm - perfect for a New England fall. Highly recommended!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful, except . . . This is just a gorgeous vest. Well made, warm, very, VERY Barbour-esque. Lots of nice details, like the deep brown corduroy around the arm holes and inner neck; slant pockets above the main pockets with soft, warm flannel-y lining. My one complaint is that it is an absolute lint magnet. Whatever kind of sweater you wear with this, it will leave lots of fibers on the vest, making it look, frankly, a bit ratty. I've stopped even trying to lint roll it, because as soon as I put it back on again, whatever sweater I'm wearing rubs off on it. My guess is, if you were a tweedy Brit, this wouldn't bother you. Fastidious Yank that I am, it does bother me some. But all said, a very nice vest. Also, it runs just a tad big - I could have gone with the size M, but the S gave me a somewhat more fitted feel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm vest Well made, heavy weight vest. I wear a size 12 and bought the large. I can wear a thick sweater or a Henley with sweatshirt under this. A Henley with a fleece is a bit snug. This is a very heavy duty vest with heavy duty zipper, interior pocket, warm fleece lined pockets. It does add bulk, but not too much for the warmth it provides. I am a little put off by the spot clean only deal as I would like to use this for hiking and sport purposes. This vest looks cool with a utility vibe. Not a dressy item

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT I love this vest for all my outdoor activities. I hunt in it and ice fish in it. It's very warm.I love the four pockets, especially the two up high ones which are very deep. The vest is roomy which allows for a big puffy down underneath so size down if you want it more fitted. Very durable and well made. If I get fish slime on it, I wipe it down, easy to clean. I have not had any zipper problems that others seem to discuss.
