"looks sharp, blocks wind, but runs small!!!!"
Love the vest, looks great, patagonia products last forever, but this style runs smaller than my other patagonia stuff, I sized up a full size in this and it is still a snug fit. Also, this style is a little short, so if you are super tall or have a long torso, it will probably hit a little higher than you would expect.
"I wear this vest everyday it's kind of becoming a problem."
I love this vest! I'm afraid I'm addicted. I feel really sad when I don't have it on but sometimes I force myself to take it off to prove I still can. The first step to dealing with a problem is to recognize the problem exists..... and buy a backup. I would highly recommend this product. It does run a bit small but it makes layering a bit more comfortable.
Retro-x products rock. They are really warm and block the wind wonderfully. This vest is awesome when it comes to style, quality and core warmth; however, it is (like many Patagonia products), not overly long in the torso. Unfortunately, I AM overly long in the torso.
Loved this vest. Was lusting after it for weeks when I finally convinced my husband that I totally had to have it. I usually wear a size large in most Patagonia or North Face items, however, I went with an XL in this one and am glad that I did.
I love this vest. It is quite stylish and versatile, and can be worn with a variety of clothing items. It is very warm, and sometimes I find that I do not need a heavier jacket to wear on top of it. Highly recommend this vest.
I have 3 Retro-X vests and I love them so much. Every season I buy a new color, but they are perfect to wear with jeans an a long sleeve top. I love the deep pockets and the fabric looks great after lots of wear and washing! I have a cream colored, green, and brown.
This delightful vest dresses up any occasion. You can be assured of the usual Patagonia fit and feel. Don't be alarmed when friends and family want to touch your new furry article of clothing. Very warm and cozy.
This vest is my favorite piece of clothing I own, I wear it almost everyday. The material is incredibly warm and windproof, while being so light weight. Throwing this vest on over a warm sweater or sweatshirt is perfect for a cold New England fall/spring day. I also wear this vest almost every other jacket I wear for extra trunk warmth in the winter. More than being warm, this vest actually looks really great on. I find it very flattering, the length is perfect (I am 140 lb 5"9' and I got a medium). One downfall is that the furry material doesn't look new for long but this vest is honestly worth every penny.
Unbelievable vest! When some reviews were saying this thing was warm--they meant WARM! No need for a coat when you are wearing this one. This vest can be dressed up or worn on those comfy days sipping coffee on the couch--like right now for me. Lots of compliments. Fits true to size. Couldn't be happier, definitely worth the $$$LOVE THE MADESS!!-Mallory
