Nice fit and quality
This was a gift to my son and he likes it a lot. He is thin and it’s hard to find clothes that fit smaller men. The small vest and long sleeved T-shirt I got him both fit perfectly!

Better than Patagonia?
I just received this vest and I must say it is VERY nice. I am a contractor so and am constantly in and out of my van. I was looking for something that would keep me warm without needing a full jacket and look presentable when I visit with clients. This was exactly what I was looking for. I was debating on this vest, the Patagonia Nano vest and the Duluth Alaskan Vest and I am very glad I purchased this one. I tried them all on and this fits the best and looks the best. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Greatest vest on the Market
I am a working rancher in Oregon, this is the best vest I have worn, I have tried several brands none compares.
I wear one to work every day. They are durable flexible light yet warm and comfortable. Great pockets that are well placed.
Thank You

Just what I wanted
This vest is exactly what I wanted. It keeps you warm without the bulk of a full jacket. It looks good and is versatile—goes well with just about anything. Really comfortable. I bought the black one, the quality is great. I’d definitely recommend this product.

Fitted and stylish vest
My husband loves this vest and he’s EXTREMELY picky with regards to style/fit. This vest looks sharp for work/casual wear and is nicely fitted (not bulky). He is already asking for the navy blue one in addition to the black.

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
