This vest was very nice but I normally wear a size 10-12 and ordered the large and it was way too tight across the stomach. I want a vest to be roomy to wear over things. I didn't re-order the extra large because the chest and armpits would have been too big. Disappointed because overall it seemed to be just what I wanted.
I do not recommend this product.

I bought this vest for my mum, her second one.
( I have a black one and my sister has two )
Very light weight, folds down to nothing so easy to pop in a bag, yet warm.
Would love a Navy blue if they made one !
I would recommend this product.

While fruitlessly searching for a Mighty Lite III JACKET, I couldn't find one anywhere (in a Small, anyway), so I saw this vest and thought if it fits as well as the jacket, I should try it. It fits great, the armholes don't "hit" (rub) my armpit (I'm 5'8", 130 lbs), I can cross my arms in front of me without the shoulders pulling, and the length is long enough I don't get air up my back.
I have the Mighty Lite III long coat, and absolutely love that, too. I really hope they have the jacket again next fall/winter.
I would recommend this product.

I love this vest because of the warmth without the bulk. It has the omni heat thermal lining. I have other garments with this and have been very pleased with the function. I plan to wear this back-packing as it is light and easy to pack as well as warm.
Although I have already worn it out in a casual evening... so it's versatile.
I would recommend this product.

I now own 3 of them. It is a tiny bit snug but I know the medium would hang on me.
I didn't give it a 5 because I haven't washed on yet so I don't know what will happen when I do. I trust it will still be as good. I wouldn't have made it comfortably through this winter in New England without these vests.
I would recommend this product.

My new vest is fitted, not puffy, so it is not bulky and goes easily under a rain jacket.
Despite its light weight, it seems to provide lots of warmth. And the zipper goes all the way up the high collar, which I like. Keeps the wind out!
I would recommend this product.

I was so excited to wear this vest but it was way too large! There was so much space around my mid section and armpits. That's the other thing, the armpits of the vest are cut at a weird angle and stick out awkwardly when your arms are down. The extra fabric in the armpits bothered me. Unfortunately, I had to return it. I was looking for a Medium and the whole store was out of stock of a Medium in any color. Very disappointed considering how much I was looking forward to this.

This vest is great. I use it when I am around the house and the heat is low and it is great sitting in a cold car, running errands, and while walking in the cold as a layer under my wind jacket. I can't believe something so light is so warm.
I would recommend this product.

The vest is nice enough, but nothing special. It is way too small and tight around chest and middle, and I'm average build/body. I tried both the small and medium. Going up any larger would have made the vest fit too loose in arms and too long.
For the price, not worth it.
I do not recommend this product.

I bought this semi-fitted vest for myself several months ago and wear it almost every day. I have received so many compliments on it that I in turn purchased as a gift for a friend. She loves it also. In Oregon, you don't always need the bulk of a heavy weight jacket and this works perfect with a long sleeve shirt for hiking/walking the dog/day to day activities.
I would recommend this product.
