this vest is extremely versatile and can be worn with anything. I wear it to the office over my dress shirts during the week, and with jeans on the weekend. Can be worn three season here in Massachusetts. Great jersey material on the outside, fleece lined inside. perfect weight. True to size. The stonewash color goes with everything. Highly recommend
This is a three season vest. Perfect weight, and jersey material, much better than fleece! can be worn to any event, I wear mine over my flannels and dress shirts to the office. They come true to size, and are very high quality. would highly recommend to anyone! I got the Stonewash color which is extremely diverse, and I wear it all the time
I bought the gray sweater vest for my husband and it is so nice! It fits true to size and it's unbelievably soft. I honestly would like to have one for myself! You can't go wrong with this sweater at such a great price! Thanks again Moosejaw!
I have now bought two of these vests in the past week and they have become my favorite vest, they're THAT good! I wasn't a fan of the Retro-X vest styling so I decided to take a chance on the Better Sweater vest and I couldn't be more impressed...so much, in fact, that I bought the Better Sweater jacket to throw over this vest on extra cold/windy days.Seriously, this thing is the warmest, softest vest ever. Get it.
"Classic looking vest, crazy warm and comfortable"
I've been a fan of Patagonia for years and finally decided to buy one of their vests. I have the Better Sweater as well and love the feel of the fabric and the warmth so I figured this would be similar...it was everything I hoped it would be.Looks fantastic. Seriously, I took the best picture I've probably ever taken the first day I had it. And for a jacket without sleeves, it's so dadgum warm! Super soft too...my girlfriend couldn't keep her hands off me, which I would like to believe is because I'm such a hunk but it's probably just because of the vest.Anyway, this is seriously a fantastic vest. I'll be ordering more in various colors soon.
"Looks great, fits well, have a sizing tip for customers purchasing (read below)"
Ok, I tried on probably a dozen vests similar to this one, including Patagonia's synthetic nano puff vest & The North Face thermoball synthetic, and I chose this over those because of the fit.I'm 6' 2", 42" chest, 34" waist, ~ 200 lbs and I went with the XL. If you're in my height range (6' and relatively in shape) you will probably fluctuate between L and XL jackets & vests. Trust me with this one and get the XL. It doesn't look too big and it gives just a bit of room to fit over long sleeve shirt, etc. The large, on the other hand, will be a tight fit and look a little ridiculous when zipped.If you're 6' 1" / 6' 2" and 165 / 170 lbs, maybe try the large. If you wear a 34" waist and are 6' 2" and 185+, go with the XL.
