This vest is very very tight in the hip area! So sad! Unwearable! I bought my usual medium. I’m 5’5” and 139 pounds. I really can’t fit it down on my hips so it rides up. I don’t have huge hips. I never need a large, but sadly, this will have to go back and I’ll try the large. Otherwise it is quite delicious. Quite warm. The smoky blue is nice. Unz... Read Moreipped pocket soft inside.

Must run small
I ordered the small for our daughter! We gave her several outfits from several brands! This was the only small that was to tight!

While the items were delivered
While the items were delivered in a timely way and I appreciate that, the vest seems to have run a little small and the color was not quite as deep as I thought it would be. I will not return it, but feel it was a lot of money for something I will not wear as much as I would if it was what I expected. I had seen a vest in the color I wanted in anot...

Lovely & warmer than expected
I was looking for a cozy vest for this season and found a keeper in the Los Gatos vest. It has both form and function, being warmer than I expected and is a perfect layer on top of a henley or plaid shirt.

comfortable, but the white is already starting to fade into a gray
I really like this vest and have worn it several times since purchase. That being said, I am disappointed that I already notice areas, especially under the arm, are starting to turn into more of a gray/less vibrant white color. I hope this goes away with a wash... sizing runs similar to other patagonia products
So cozy; many compliments
Love this! Got in white and it is a great layering piece that goes well with many outfits and adds a lot of warmth due to the material. Fits well and not too bulky. I usually wear a XS/S in Patagonia, and this Small fit great. I was concerned about the white getting dirty, but only after a few weeks (yes I know I should wash it) have I noticed any ...

Beautiful and warm
I found the vest (size M) a bit too snug around the hips which pushed it up to clump at my midriff. I am 5'4", 130 lbs., hour glass, 34 DD bra. I felt as if a Large would be too bulky above the waist for layering so I returned it. I am eyeing the less figure-clinging versions of a vest.
Soft and wonderful
I'm very happy with my vest purchase. I bought this as I only had a down vest and wanted something I could wear comfortable indoors and outdoors as a layer. The gold color is really nice. It's fuzzy but not overly fuzzy, doesn't shed. Feels well made and has good sized pockets.
Love the quality
It’s a really beautiful vest! Well made and super cozy. I should have listened to the other reviews though because this vest does run small. I ordered a small as I am 5’3/115lbs but I think a medium would have been a been a bit more roomy. It’s all on personal preference but it’s a really great vest and I don’t regret buying mine.
Cozy and smart
This vest looks as invitingly warm as it feels. I especially like the smooth and friction free fabric on the inside which allows maximum freedom in movement. I bought the wren gold which is a 1970’s classic dark yellow. My only wish is for more fabric in the belly area. In size medium the chest and hip areas fit well, the belly part was tight. Go... Read Moreing up to size large would have left the belly a better fit and a very baggy chest and hip area.
Wish it was as soft as I first touched it.
When I first saw it in a store it felt super soft! The store didn’t have my size so I ordered from the Patagonia website. What I receive didn’t feel as soft. Also after sitting in the car, the seatbelt leaves an indentation in the vest. I also wished the pockets had zippers.
Hey there! We are sorry to hear that this vest has not quite lived up to your expectations. Your satisfaction is guaranteed and you are welcome to return this item if you would like. I have reached out to you privately with additional return information.
Some women have larger chests and are lean! Fix colors!
I have multiple vests. I am waiting to buy more but the colors are consistently dull or off. Why not make wearable colors??

I am a solid size M and according to your size chart, this should fit me but it is tight and not as long as I'd like. Still deciding if I want to keep it.

You Gatos Buy This Fleece
I read a lot of reviews about this vest and the common consensus from all the reviews is to purchase the vest one size up, for me this was correct.

I could fit into a small, but layering underneath would have been uncomfortable, and the length wasn't to my liking in a small. So I purchased a Medium for a slightly looser, and longer torso fit. I recommend the vest! It's very warm, and soft! perfect to wear with jeans and boots, as well as leggins. A good vest to wear for all occasions!
Love Patagonia, disappointed by this vest
I bought this vest about 1 month ago and I thought it was cuddly and just the right temperature and size. The problem is the material.

Tighter than last season's
I purchased a cream one last season and loved it so much that I went back for a different color. It seems as it the product has been made much smaller, especially across the chest area.

Disappointed with lack of practical pockets
Loved the soft feel of the vest but did not realize when I ordered online that this vest contains no zipper pockets. There is also no pocket in the interior of the vest.

Warm and fashionable!
I love Patagonia vests,and this one is no exception. That said,this vest is not really built for the wild. It isn't super durable and doesn't have internal or zippered pockets.

The softest,coziest vest ever

Love this vest. Perfect warmth for using with a light long sleeve underneath without feeling bulky. I ordered a small so it would be a bit more fitted,and i love it. My only critique is that I wish the pockets had a smooth lining. When my hand are dry and chapped from the winter,it has that gross feeling on my skin when I put my hands in the pocket... Read Mores. Otherwise I love.
You'll want more than one
Awesome vest. It is a little short so I'd recommend sizing up. It's lined and keeps you SO warm. My go-to for wearing an extra layer to work,class,or just inside the house. I'm 135 lbs,5'6 and returned a size small for a medium (because of the length). If I could justify owning more than one of the same style of vest I'd bu... Read Morey another!
Great vest but...
This is a really nice looking vest,the only problem is sizing,the medium was too tight and the large is really too big. I kept the large because returning a second item would have cost me almost 1/3 of what I paid for the vest anyways. The quality is really good,just disappointed with the fit.
tight in the hip
I don't think this runs small all over,only in the hip. Sizing up doesn't help because a bigger size is much longer which makes it still too tight,just lower on the hip. I am a 10/12 in most clothing and I guess L is about right,though it's big in the waist and rides up a bit in back,like in the picture of the model. I wish Pata woul...

So Warm AND Stylish
I have been wanting this vest for a very long time and finally bit the big one and ordered it. It is not only very stylish,but also very warm. I like that I can wear it everyday with yoga pants/leggings or to work with a flannel/a long sleeve shirt. You can make this vest work with any style for any day.

For reference,I am 5'4" tall,weigh 150 lbs,and wear a 34B (sometimes 34C) bra,so I went up to a large for this vest (I wear medium in all my other Patagonia fleeces/jackets). The vest fits perfectly and zips with a little extra room! I got the khaki colored vest as it goes with practically any color I have in my closet. I definitely recommend saving the money up to purchase this vest--you won't be disappointed. :)
I usually comfortably wear a small or medium in Patagonia so I ordered a M in this vest. It was incredibly small and I could not move my arms comfortably. My friend has the same vest in a L,which fits so nicely and feels so cozy. I would recommend going up a few sizes when buying this product.
LOVE! So soft. So warm
I have been eyeing this vest in the store for a while,and I finally caved in and bought it online. Unfortunately this runs VERY small.
