Rated 5 out of 5 by taichijane from Perfect! I finally wore out my beloved Bean goosedown vest. Sad. Bought this immediately as the closest approximation, and it was so gorgeous when it came I barely had the tags off before I was off on an unplanned saunter, wearing it. Fits perfectly, layered over a fleece jacket, light sweater, shirt, and my fave Bean silk undies. Toasty. Since it's brand new I can only hope it lasts as well as the old goosedown (stitching finally went after a dozen years, a number of washings/dryings, lots of rain, major climate changes, and near-daily use from October to April, plus that summer in Denali park). So far so good, anyway. Love ya, LLBean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SueSue from Forgot my coat, hardly noticed The only downside to this vest is the sizing. I don't consider myself tiny so xx-small petite sounded too small to possibly be right, but alas after getting the x-small petite and deciding it was too big (even with big sweaters underneath) I ended up exchanging it. So SIZE DOWN. But now that I have the right size, it's just amazing! I forgot my winter coat on our road trip over Christmas and with a fleece or sweater underneath this thing stood up to the test. Wind resistant, comfy, pockets for days, it's all I needed over the course of 9 days in NE Ohio winter. I got it in black and so it goes with just about everything I own. Awesome addition to my wardrobe and highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Irene from Retro Vest I absolutely love this vest. I really don't care for the current vests that have the shiny material. This vest has a beautiful matte finish. In my opinion it just looks more natural walking the dogs through the woods. So very glad LLBean produced this vest. Would love to see it in a dark olive or dark chocolate brown next year. I'm 4'10 and am stocky build, thanks mom...I fit into a women's petite large very well and can still get a thick sweater on underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CityofSeattle from Best Vest I've Ever Bought Love the vintage look of this vest! It's made quite well - good seams, snaps and zippers (love the in-pocket zipper for keys!). I bought the petite X-Small and it fits well, even with a sweater underneath. All in all, a great product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by kseidl from Well made, but no shape Like most LLBean, I find the sizing runs a little big. I'm usually a medium, but I ordered a small and the sizing was right. It's really well made and warm. But here's the problem: there's no defined waist or an option to subtly cinch one in with a drawstring. So I looked like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. If a drawstring were added to the waist, I would repurchase in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FemaleGeologist from Very Classic I absolutely love this puffer vest. It's comfortable, functional, and stylish! The pockets are fantastic, each one has a separate zipper pocket inside. I will say that I found the sizing a bit off from what I generally order from LLBean. I first started with a M and then switched it out for a S. I typically wear a M in the "Katahdin Pullover" and the "slightly fitted Scotch Plaids".

Rated 5 out of 5 by AMx2 from warm and stylish Medium swam on me so sent back for a small so I guess I would say runs a bit big. Usually not a small in clothing but fits great and can wear over sweater. Very happy with fit and style of this vest. It is very warm as well. I catch my mom wearing it so maybe I'll get her one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Myb10 from Great Vest Such a great vest and warm! I typically get mediums across the board with sweaters and jackets. This is a medium, and a little big, but I like it since I'll typically be wearing it with sweaters.
