Super Versatile and Light Weight
I love this vest. It's the best of both worlds. You get the old fashioned hi-pile retro style fleece that I love, but not the restriction that sometimes comes with the full sleeve jacket. It's light weight and perfect for spring/fall. I wear a light long sleeve under it to go on hikes. The durable windproof technology keeps my inner core ... Read Morewarm which is the most important part to keep warm. I love the style of the vest. It's fitted and short but not too short if you know what I mean. The colors accents are so pretty too. I got the dark blue one with the cute pink trim.
Warm fuzzy vest with nice styling
I usually don't buy fleece because I don't want to contribute to the ocean microplastics problem, but so far this vest hasn't shedded any fluff and I also don't plan to wash it. It acts as a thick, warm midlayer for casual outings. It looks great and professional even when worn in the office. Size up if you want to wear anything... Read More bulkier than a thin layer underneath. I love the retro style and color chest pocket- it is a seasonal staple and won't go out of fashion,
I got my wife the blue for Christmas and now wants the khaki one too. She loves the fit. She was worried it would be “boxy” but had the athletic fit she wanted. She wears a medium and it fit true to size. She’s also a fan of the blue piping the zipper and around the base, says it’s a nice contrast. Now for a camping trip to try it in nature.
Best vest ever
I purchased Natural, and am in love! Warm, true to size (I got a S, and am 5'4", 127 lbs.) without being too snug. Wore it to a holiday parade and it is very windproof. I'm freezing if the temp is below 50 - Southerner... - and this seems like it will do the trick for weather even a bit cooler than that.
This vest seems super cozy but it’s enormous. I wear a medium or large, usually large in Patagonia stuff and most jackets, so that’s what I got, and when I lift my arms out to the sides the fabric underneath sticks out several inches on both sides. I double checked the label to make sure they hadn’t sent me an XL accidentally, it was so big. Also, ... Read MoreI have moderately wide hips and even that area was too loose by several inches. Hopefully the medium is a more reasonable fit!
Love to keep it but...
This vest is so cute but it is a little snug at the hip. I’m 5’3”, 120 lbs. have narrow hips)and ordered a small , my usual Patagonia size. I’m disappointed, but can’t keep it if I can’t layer it. Also, why not use two way zippers? They are much more practical and flattering.
Great vest! But...
I love this vest. The retro look is sweet and it is very warm. That said, it is cut for women without hips. There is an elastic band on the bottom that doesn't give and makes for some gathering at the hip when you layer. This is not a huge issue, just something easily remedied by a reversible zipper (why oh why don't you use these, Patago... Read Morenia?) or a relaxed hem. If you are curvy on the bottom at all, size up. I didn't want to because I am really small in the ribs and I didn't want the arm holes to gap. I got the XS and I am 5'6"/120lbs. I mostly wear this vest open if I am layering.
The vest is really cute and comfy. The collar is a little high and the material is a little stiff (due to the windproof fabric),but I'm assuming it will soften up with time and wear I normally am a XS in Patagonia and ordered XS for the vest,and it fits really nicely. Since it's a regular cut it allows me to layer up but still look femini... Read Morene and form fitting if I decide to wear less layers or by itself. Get it while it's on sale,I'm glad I did! For reference I am 5'4" 120 lbs and ordered XS
Beautiful vest,but don't size down.
I heeded the recommendations of other reviewers and sized down for this vest. I'm 5'5",128,34B and S is my usual size. I ordered an XS and it was the right length,but otherwise too small all over. Just wanted to add my sizing experience into the mix. I would recommend ordering your usual size.
I love this vest!! It's a lot warmer and more heavy duty than I expected! Its "stiff" at first but it definitely softens up after wearing it a couple times,the material and quality is amazing,Patagonia never lets me down,I'm 5 ft 2 in. 130 lbs with a 35 1/2 inch bust,I normally wear a size small in Patagonia (but the size small ... Read Morein this vest was huge on me!) I had to return it for the XS and the XS fits perfect,if I were you I would size down unless you want to layer underneath it. I don't like to bulky layer so that is why I got the XS and it works out perfect with a long sleeve or short sleeve underneath,it's cozy to lounge around in or to wear for casual wear in the cold weather,I hope this helps!
Warm and Snug
I have well-worn old retro-x vest from a few years ago. Sometimes you need to replace an item. Anyway,ordered the size in medium,which was my previous size. Anyway,I received it and the armpit area was huge. So I had to return it and order the small. It was same for the Better Sweater Vest. It ran a little big near the armpits.
