Nice vest! Bought 4 of them for uniforms for staff. They love them, looks and performance. They look like heavy wool but are soft, light and comfortable. Our dog sled touring company will be showing off these vests all season! (www.pagosadog.com)
I am a big, big fan of Patagonia anyway, but this vest is easily one of my favorite products. I have Black already and love it so much so I ordered Raw Linen. I have the 1/4 button up in Raw Linen and I think the color is great - it's like a creamy whitish color. This vest is awesome for cool days where you want an extra layer. It is (of course) very cute worn casual but it is also very functional. I also wear it hiking and kayaking for some additional warmth and it is very comfortable to move around in and not bulky (like some of the other vests). I am 5'4 135 and average/athletic build and the medium is great for me! I didn't want my vest super tight and I like some room for layering. I recommend this product for sure.
