I bought this vest for myself in a size Medium, roughly 5'0. I fit into the women's down sweater vest as well, but wasn't willing to spend 170 for just one item. Poor college student status actually, and this buy was a great find! The torso fits just as well as the women's Extra Small but the only different I found was how the zipper closes towards the bust area. It is more fitted in my experience but going up a size would have made the fit boxy. It's still a slim fit similar to the women's but for a hundred bucks less! Also instead of having just one cinch draw cord to adjust the hem (the women's vest), there are two in this one. Overall, a great buy!
