Fits a bit snugger than the Gilliam jacket of the same size, but otherwise works great. Does a good job shedding water and dirt

Vest is thin
The Gilliam vest gives a very nice appearance and looks to be very well made. I was disappointed in that it is thin and would not provide the warmth that I was looking for. I found a similar vest made by a popular outdoor sports wear company that was insulated with down on sale for only $15 more and with free shipping. I ordered their large size which turned out to be 1 inch longer than the Gilliam that I ordered in a large tall. Needless to say, I'm returning the Gilliam.

Size, fit, and comfort are spot on. Love it. I own 3.
Light weight, comfortable, and warm. Exactly what I was looking for, however, I would replace the snaps on the pockets with zippers to better secure valuables.

Road Warrior on Aug 24, 2018
Are they true to size?
A shopper on Jan 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These vest are true to size. The collar is supposed to fit snug around the neck, to keep the air out. But if you are planning on using it as an outer layering piece , you may consider a size larger. I prefer for it to fit snug around my neck. Thankyou

How many pockets on the inside Pockets large enough for a 38 pistol?
A shopper on Nov 23, 2016
