Quality for LESS! -

If you are contemplating buying this vest, hesitate no longer, because for this sale price of $27.20 it's an absolute steal of a bargain!... Just received mine yesterday and I was so impressed on the quality, thickness and softness of the material and and the functionality of this vest... It is good looking to boot... I purchased the jacket a year or so ago and have been very pleased but this vest and jacket have been upgraded and they are even nicer... The material seems to be more dense... It has the two lined handwarmer pockets, a chest pocket for an ipod or anything else you may want to put there, a nice collar made from faux fleece and the faux leather trim, which looks very much like real leather.. Let me say, I purchased a large and it is a full cut, so layering over a heavy sweatshirt etc. is no problem but if you prefer it to fit trim, say just over a shirt, you might want to drop down a size.. I'm stocky at 5'8' and 175lbs and like I said, the large is full cut but I myself would rather have it that way than too trim or tight... It also has an adjustable waist you can cinch up to take in the slack... All in all, this is a terrific vest for the money and I highly recommend it and its warm too... For the money you can't go wrong, even if you wear it for working around the house or the garage, you won't find a nicer one for the money...Believe it, this is a bargain and I wonder why Orvis is selling it at such a low price..? Maybe just overstocked but it's your gain.. I like it a lot!

I purchased my first Sherpa Fleece Vest last year and liked it so much that when they went on sale, I purchased another one. They are warm, comfortable and well made. I enjoy wearing them around the house and as a part of a layering system under my fishing jacket during cooler weather. I would highly recommend this vest.

I am writing my review whilst wearing this vest, or zipped waistcoat. It is very well made, and ideal for keeping both warm and active, and a bargain in the sale. If I have one criticism, it's the faux sheepskin collar, which to be honest, looks a bit naff, on a such a well made garment, hence four stars. Not naff enough though, to send it back.
A couple of inches short of excellence !! -

This is a pretty good gilet but comparing it to others I own from other manufacturers I find it a couple of inches shorter than the norm. This means there is less coverage of and warmth for the lower back area which I find disappointing. I can therefore only give it a qualified recommendation and hope that future versions will remedy this problem.

It is my husbands favorite vest and he has quite a few.
a problem solved -

My husband is 84 and arthritic so has difficulty putting a fleece jacket on over clothes in the winter. This gilet will hopefully solve the problem of keeping him warm and being easy to put on.

My best Chanukah present to my husband this year was his own Sherpa Fleece Vest. A friend of ours wore one and he loved it, so I ordered him one the very next day! What a great decision - my husband wore it for a cool night in San Francisco and it was perfect!
Excellent purchase -

I ordered 5 of these vests for my brothers. They're rugged but also nice to wear out on the town!

This vest is very comfortable and has drawn numerous positive comments. And when it's chilly and not too cold, it's a great top layer.
