Rugged and Warm
Rugged - great fit and true to size - no smell that I notice (as some have mentioned). A little more expensive than the thin nylon shell types, but this is a vest you won't be buying again for a while - Looks like it will last forever.
Only negative for me is the Velcro closing inside pocket - I really dislike Velcro for that sort of thing - impossible to leave the pocket "open" and I hate pulling on Velcro to open a pocket. Minor nit though - great vest.
