If you are using it as a vest, consider one size down.
I only give four stars because I wish it has internal chest pocket. I often travel internationally by car+air+train and internal chest pocket would be great. The size is same as jackets, generous cut, and therefore if you want to use this as a vest under another jacket, I prefer to fit close to the body.
Nice and versatile with a fuzzy social demeanor.
As a Patagonia lifer, I generally dont leave reviews simply because the products are consistent in terms of quality, fit and purpose. That being said, the Los Gatos vest is a fun & functional piece I wear for a variety of activities. Pros: simple design, collarless, basic pockets, low bulk to core warmth ratio, nice & fuzzy soft hand to the... Read More fleece. Cons: Sized slightly smaller than other vests of comparable size. Tends to pill a bit on the shoulders (from seatbelt/courier bag straps) and a few more color options would be nice. Overall it is a great mid layer for fishing, biking, hiking and yet adds a dash of class to a t-shirt at the tavern or an oxford at a meeting. As usual, Patagonia has delivered another product with a purpose.
A great funky vest
"Funky" is the best word I can come up with for this vest. The fleece is furrier than both the Scynchila (sp?) and retro vests, which gives it a sort of old-west vibe too. This quality also gives it a fashion-statement impact; more so than the other two vests. I've gotten many complements on this vest. When I bought mine several year... Read Mores ago, it was zipped; now it's snapped. Snaps may actually be better given that it runs small. I'm a true medium and this feels a bit snug; go up a size if you're close to the upper limit or plan to layer over a heavy shirt. The only downside is that the fur tends to wear and get shiny under friction (for example a seatbelt), which means I take this off in the car. I'm just about ready for a new one, as soon as some good colors come along - black and brown are too drab for this; it begs for some color to deepen the fashion impact.
Fantastic for Layering
I bought this vest to layer under a shell and a denim jacket. The low collar is perfect since my shell and denim jacket both have tall collars. The snaps are high quality and easy to fasten due to the stiffness of the woven fabric on the front of the vest. And the Los Gatos fleece is always super comfortable, warm, and lightweight. Love this vest!
Love the snaps...
Ok, first review in 35 years of owning Patagonia gear. In the 90s Patagonia had a vest called (I believe) the Simple Vest. Pullover v-neck, synchilla, killer simplicity. I had hoped this would have the same dna...the chromosomes went wrong. Snaps are great, fit is sort of strange and the fleece is a shedding machine. I kept it because I will gift i... Read Moret next Christmas and returning goods have an impact.
