Colour was not as expected. Side pockets too far back.

My microsuede vest is now about 4 years old. It gets put away for the summer, then when the Pennsylvania fall starts, out it comes. It stays with me during the cold, wet winters all the way through the cold April rain. I wear it shopping and around the house. It still looks good and is cozy warm.
My favorite vest -

Just purchased and love it. Very stylish, can wear it casual or somewhat dressy. Comfortable, not bulky. Looks like suede from a distance. Perfect for my use.
Beyond satisfactory -

I spotted this vest while browsing the online catalog and thought it looked as though it would do. You know, something to wear under the Barbour for a bit of added warmth at late fall herding trials, or over a sweater on bright days. I ordered a size larger to accommodate a bulkier sweater and shirt. The vest arrived and it was too large, even with the bulky sweater. But the quality and the design features were way beyond my expectations. This was a very, very nice vest. No problems though. I called the customer service line per the instructions for return and they shipped out the next smaller size immediately while I returned the larger. The replacement arrived within three days and it was a perfect fit with my heavier sweaters. Pockets where you want and need them. Sturdy construction and a really nice look. I would have given the vest 5 stars but I haven't worn it out in the field yet. I have little doubt, though, that the vest will perform well when I'm standing out in the chill November paddocks watching the dog on its outrun.
Very comfortable, warm and lots of storage. I am very pleased with it. I gave them out to my nephews at Christmas ages 21 to 27, they all love them and are wearing them frequently.
Not as advertised -

Purchased for water and stain repellance. Vest absorbed water like a sponge when brand new. Light sprinkle and every drop would penetrate; must have completely missed some treatment. I like the overall fit, weight and pockets configuration, but the storm flap is a aggravating in everyday wear as it prevents the vest from draping flat and evenly in any mode except fully zipped.
