Nice vest but runs large
I consistently wear a large in everything, but the large I ordered was too big, especially through torso. I really liked the vest though but had to return it. Like other reviews, the collar is a little high.

Great Extra Warmth Layer
I bought a Carhartt Gilliam jacket for myself and liked it so much I bought one for my brother. He likes it a lot as well. So decided to give a vest a try. I don't usually were vests and haven't worn this as much as I have the jacket version. But - this is just as nice of a warmth layer as the jackets. Nice, nice quality. Same fit and finish. I usually wear it with a Carhartt long sleeve t-shirt under it. Has the same handy zippered side chest pocket which I really like. Edging on neck and shoulders is a very soft and nice material. Would really like to see the hooded Gilliam jacket offered again.

Great Vest
I was able to pick this up on one of the season sales and couldn't be happier about it. Great for the fall or layered under the jacket in the winter.
