As Heavy Duty as the Name Specifies
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: L
Vest are such a hit or miss thing with people depending on their fashion sense. If you are a fan of a vest that is heavy duty and has a carhart feel with more style, the ten gauge vest is for you. I've used it hiking, hunting, camping and even snowboarding and had nothing but good luck with it. The pockets are huge and deep so you can keep an extra pair of gloves or even goggles in them securely. The canvas is water resistant to an extent but you are not going to want to get caught in rain with this bad mahma-jamma. The wool lining keeps you super toasty and the fit is decently slim. Great vest, but I would encourage one to try it on first as vests fit kind of funky no matter what the make.

I ordered the XL 10 Gauge vest. Who designed this thing? I own a dozen XL vests of every sort--outdoor, work, foul weather, indoor--all fit fine. I'm 5'10", 220# (yes, overweight). I could not zip this vest and the armholes are cut small and high. It fits like a straitjacket and rubs the armpits. Very uncomfortable! Sorry, a terrible vest. ___JM
10 out of 10.

Okay, so I know the review stars max out at 5, but this vest is seriously a 10 out of 10. My husband was gifted this vest from a friend this past winter and it's looks so, so handsome on him. It's a super practical vest in terms of its rugged construction, durability, and low-profile warmth but it's also slick enough to wear to work (he works at a tech agency). Admittedly, my husband is not a "vest guy" but the 10 gauge has totally changed his perception on vests. He's about 5'9" and 140 pounds and the medium fit him exceptionally well. He can wear multiple layers underneath it when extra warmth is required, yet when worn with just a button-down shirt, the vest doesn't look overly boxy or shapeless. I'm really impressed with the overall construction of this vest, especially for the price.
