Patagonia Men's All Seasons Hemp Canvas Work Vest

Kinda Large
May 10, 2021

Work Wear

I purchased this for myself. The reviews were very helpful on sizing. Pockets are deep and the rear/game pocket comes in handy to put gloves and other items that I use throughout the day.

Great functional vest

I had initially purchased this vest in a xxl I'm 6'1" 330lbs. I run a 56" gut. The xxl fit but was too tight to be comfortable. I upped to xxxl and now I can wear this vest comfortably with a hoodie under it. It's great, a bunch of pockets, the back pocket is a nice surprise, I didn't think it'd get much use, but...

Nice features

The zippered chest pocket is perfect for the phone which falls out of other pockets in to slush or mud. The hand pockets work well for screws, nails, pencils, measuring tapes, small note pads and goodies. Can't wait to use the game bag in the back!

Love it long

I purchased this vest because I wanted the classic work vest from Filson, but it was way too short. While this vest doesnt list its size as long or tall, I was very pleased at the length of the XL size. I am 63 and find it plenty long, coming down to just below my belt, which is perfect. The vest is extremely comfortable, and feels broken-in and ev... Read Moreen went brand new. I trust that Patagonia quality will result in years of faithful, dirty service. Thank you Patagonia!

10/10 would recommend

I bought this early winter and have worn it just about every day since. I feel naked without it. It's durable enough for manual labor but nice enough to wear out. The pockets are practical and not overbearing. 10/10

Range of motion

I used the size estimating chart and originally bought the xl version. The return process was seamless and the L version was perfect for chest size 46. The weight, lining, neck cut and shoulder cut allow for constant motion without abrasive fabric or restriction. Thoughtful pocket linings and ergonomic pocket placements ensure this is one of my fav... Read Moreorite core layers.

High Quality Jacket

Brought this vest as a working jacket for when I volunteer at the local wildlife trust. My fleece vest is getting badly worn from lifting stumps branches and walking through dense woodland.

Nice warm vest

Great vest. Keeps you warm and doesnt feel big/heavy on you. I got a medium (5ft 9, 180 lbs) and it fits perfectly.

Warm and durable

I work in an unheated warehouse and pair this vest with a wool Sweater and long sleeve undershirt on cold days. Its not restricting movement and it keeps me warm. Great pocket placement and its reliably durable.

Vest was fine, but too heavy for my needs. Exchanged it for a Puff vest. I LOVE Patagonia. A superlative company. Do not go public.

See above...great vest, but did not work for my needs.

Great vest

The reviews saying size down are correct. I am 61 and 195 lbs. I usually by a large but had to return this for a Medium and it fits great with a sweatshirt or button down. This vest is seems sturdy and is super comfy. I do wish it had an inside pocket

Too big and cuts into my neck

I always appreciate Patagonia's quality and attention to details so I thought I'd give it a try for a work vest, but for me it fit way too big and the collar digs into my neck. 6'1, 195lbs broad shoulders. The loose fit around my waist 34" was the worst fitting area of all, it felt like it had air-conditioning. I feel this was d... Read Moreesigned for street wear not work wear based on the fit.

Thanks for providing us with some feedback on our All Seasons Hemp Canvas Work Vest. Unfortunately, it sounds like the fit was less than ideal for you. If you haven't already, feel free to send it back to us. We're still working on refining our Workwear as it's a fairly new frontier for us, so this feedback helps us with that process.

New Favorite (once I found my fit)

I have been wearing it almost daily since I got it. Warm and comfortable, with well thought out chest pockets (although I haven't used the large back pocket yet). Sizing is tough, though. I realize that Patagonia makes their Workwear line larger for freedom of movement, but for some garments it is excessive, and the variability in fit is a bit... Read More maddening. I'm usually a Large in Patagonia items, including the Workwear Western shirt, which while loose is not excessively so, but this vest was so oversized (as was the Farrier's shirt) that would not be an effective insulating layer, making it practically nonfunctional. I had to downsize to Medium, which is a bit snugger than the usual Patagonia Large sizing, but fits well over a shirt, is comfortable and warm, and should be more useful in a greater variety of conditions.

January 13, 2021

Near Perfect

I really like this vest - it seems very durable, is comfortable and looks great. Patagonia tops run large in my experience and medium usually fits well. My medium vest is still roomy (I'm 6-0, 165 lbs). My only gripe is that there is excess material just below the armholes but it doesn't really bother me when wearing.

December 27, 2020

Great vest

I ordered this for my husband who does a lot of outdoor activities. It fit well and he really liked it. Lots of pockets. I went with Patagonia since it is a quality product that I know he will get many years of use from it.

December 24, 2020

Very comfortable

Love the feel and warmth, only draw back is that as a bigger dad bod, its a little small in the chest area.

December 15, 2020

Great work vest

Great vest. Very happy with it. Seems durable and keeps me warm. Runs a bit big but the small fit me perfect. Im 5.11 and 145 pounds. See using it at camp on my mountain adventures. But loving it at hone as well. So glad I got it.

Very versatile, durable & comfortable! Typically wear an XL in other Patagonia vests-but with this vest the L fits perfectly

Tough but soft

I'm 5'10" 160lb with a 39" chest and never thought a small would fit but based on the reviews I tried it. Small fits snug (not tight) with room for a fleece under it and not so big I can't wear the vest under a jacket.

Awesome vest!

Great workwear vest. I bought for my bf who normally wears a medium and it fit perfectly. He wears it all the time.

Rugged, warm

I wanted to get this vest the minute I received the email from Patagonia that announced this new product. Saved some funds and bought it just in time for fall clean up in Maine, where I live, and where we have any number of options for outdoor gear and clothing. But there's nothing out there like this vest, which is exactly what I anticipated:... Read More rugged, warm, and with a perfect number of pockets. In addition to being my go to yard work top layer, I've used it when riding trails on my fat bike, and when hiking. Will Probably use it as a layer for early season and definitely for spring season.

A perfectly functional vest

As typical with Patagonia, the quality of material and workmanship is top-notch. The feel of the vest is somehow soft yet tough. Plenty of pockets that I've already been putting to good use. My only complaint is that I wish an athletic or slim-cut version of this vest existed in the medium size, as it's a bit large around the middle, like...

I normally wear a size medium in Patagonia products for last 20+ years, and that usually fits well. This is a first where I had to return the medium for a size small.

I've gotten in the habit of wearing a fleece vest just in general, but I've wanted to start moving to sustainable fabrics for some time. When the fleece finally wore out, I opted for this hemp vest, and I am elated. Comfortable, perfectly sized. I normally wear tall sizes, and was concerned that this vest didn't have that option, but... Read More I'm fortunate to live near a Patagonia store, so got to try it on first. My one recommendation, and it's a minor one, is that it would benefit from a a two-way zipper. When sitting with the vest zipped, the vest doesn't lay well.

Handsome vest

Purchased this vest for myself as an early Christmas present, I know, selfish. Like the soft hand of the exterior fabric, hope it weathers in, and looks better with age. Pretty toasty with a long sleeve shirt underneath. Love the pocket placement. Long tail is nice for keeping my backside warm. Nice addition to my vest collection.

Perfect fit for layering & work. Stylish to also wear anywhere.... high quality construction/materials, got the “black” vest. Gonna get a brown one now. I know, I’m terrible.

I was looking for a lightweight insulated vest to wear when working in the yard. This fit the bill perfectly. I already have the hemp canvas work pants-which are amazing, so the vest was a no brainer.

Too long!

Perhaps I can get used to the bike jersey style length in the back, but for my height a medium is not a good fit, I have to pull it up to stick a hand in my jeans pocket, it's about 3-4" too long. Otherwise I like the weight and feel.

5 stars for looks and function, a difficult combo in work clothes. Got the black and looks better with each washing. Warm, great pocketry, and good flexibility. My wife thinks it looks great too. I am 5'11" and 175 and the medium fits perfect over a layer or two.

We are sorry to hear the troubles with sizing on this vest. Our Work Wear line is sized a bit different than our other items as we make most items in a "relaxed" fit. That may be why you are experiencing some sizing troubles. Please feel free to [send]( this back to us and we are happy to help if you have any [questions](

The Goldilocks Vest

This vest is "just right" in so many ways and not quite in one way: size. I'm stuck between the medium (5'9, 180 pounds) and the large.

It's a nice close fit over a hoody but with plenty of range of motion (swinging an axe or working with hands above my head). I ordered online, but would be interested in how a medium fit if I had a chance to try one on. Bottom line for me, I don't think these vests run as big as some of the Patagonia workwear line implies.
