This is a fantastic vest, very versatile. Medium weight fleece. I bought 3 colors to wear in the office in the winter. Fits good, not tight or curve hugging but still flattering. Colors are fun. Note: The colors are brighter than they appear online. The bright compass is a very bright, vibrant blue. I think it's pretty but it would be too bright for some people. Price is excellent for a very staple piece. Only drawback, it is not a long vest. I am pretty short, 5'4" and I would not want it any shorter. So it may not work work tall women.

Quality product, but runs quite large. I was looking for a fitted fleece vest. I'm 5'8" & 110lbs. The small was huge on me. I went to the backcountry's retail site in SLC and tried on the XS. It was still quite loose on me. Sadly I had to return it. Sniff. Sniff. If you're considering buying this product, go one size smaller.

Luckily I read the other reviews and sizing down is necessary. I'm normally wear a medium, but even with the small I got, I can comfortably add layers underneath. I haven't really tested the warmth of the vest so I can't speak to the technical aspects, but it's lightweight, soft, and for the sale price was incredibly good value!

I am 5' 8 1/2" 137 lbs and the small was a perfect fit. Normally I can not wear a small so a size down from what you wear would be best. I did not find this boxy. The color of green is a fair bit lighter than the pic but still attractive, like a dark moss.

What a comfy article of clothing to put on now that cooler weather (but no snow) has hit Vermont. The product is roomy enough so that it can accommodate a sweater underneath when it gets even colder! I consider this a good purchase as well as a good value.

This is a great purchase for the price. Warm, I don't need a neck gator when I have this vest on & I use it around the house when needing a little more warmth. It has a flattering, feminine fit & is soft.

Janet Kaplar at on 02/07/2013

This vest is really cute and soft but it runs very large, I'm usually a S/M girl and I bought an S for this one and its waaaay to loose, I don't think an XS will even fit ok. I'm 125lbs and 5'5"

Tere Rivas at on 05/17/2011

The vest is just perfect. I love the color, feel, and the size was exactly as expected. Tried to go back and order a different color but they were all gone. Wished I had ordered a couple of more the first time.

I love this vest. It is great for those not frigid but not comfortable days in between fall and winter. I wear it with tshirts, flannel, and even sweaters. It looks good with anything and everything.

This vest is perfect for day to day fall/winter activities when you simply do not need a full jacket, but a little extra to keep your core warm.

Negative Reviews:

Someone tall and angular can rock this; I cannot. The size runs very large too. The Benton Springs long sleeve is equally large and boxy. I don't like the pocket placement either. The fleece is nice though.

Neutral Reviews:

I bought this vest in green and white but was disappointed to see that it was unlined. The material is a basic fleece which will probably pill with minimal washing. The size is true to fit but the collar doesn't lie flat completely. I don't think they will last for more than a season of wear. But in the end, the price was good. Next time, I hope to find one that's better quality..

After reading the reviews, I ordered a size smaller and it's still too big and boxy. I ordered the green and it doesn't look at all like the picture - it's much lighter, more of a bright lime green.
