Well made warm layering vest, not bulky, fits easily under a shell to make cold days easier to handle. The side panels are especially thin and don't restrict arm motion. The neck zips up high, right to the bottom of your ears and halfway up your chin. The zipper is easy to fasten, but sits on the left, opposite of what most people are used to. The inside of the black vest has a lighter color charcoal fabric from the pitch black outside. There are pulls at the bottom to cinch it tighter, but it fits well without that detail.
