My wife loves how this vest erases by beer belly and makes me look super sexy. I love it because it gets her fired up, but also because it's nice and toasty warm without being the least bit bulky or inhibiting. The collar fits just right to keep snow or rain off your neck and the stretchy side panels allow plenty of movement. This is an awesome second layer for snow shoveling or mountain hiking, and the sex appeal doesn't hurt either.
Vest is very thin and looks sharp. If you want a vest to make a fat guy like me look a little skinnier then this is it. Wore it first time and does cut wind and is semi warm. If you want to have puffy vest look for snow then pick another.
