    great Vest - 9/23/2014
    By: from Surrey B.C.

    This fits great...XXL, very warm, looks great, the only improvement would be the pockets, too shallow to store things...good for hands only.

    The vest is everything as described on the website. The liner inside makes it comfortable in colder weather. I would definitely recommend this to my friends.

    Just like I pictured it. Heavy knit, nice liner, wore it on a decent feb day downtown Boston,and was quite comfortable. Sharp looking.

    Grandfather-Grandson Gift - 2/24/2014
    By: from Tifton, Ga.

    I ordered this vest for my husband because he showed it to me in the catalog because he liked it. When he wore it on Thanksgiving my 16 year old grandson told me later that he really liked what Grandaddy was wearing. After mentioning it another time I decided to order him one too. I never dreamed he would want to wear something like his Grandaddy so this is an item that is great for all ages.

    Vroom Vroom Vest! - 2/20/2014

    This vest appealed to me not only because it is Orvis but the windproof lining it offered. Substantial fabric that is not too heavy but ideal for those 50°/60° days with a sweater underneath.
