I agree with the other reviewer that finds that this sizing is too large. The fleece vest, which is intended to be a close fitting layer for outdoor insulation--could fit a down vest underneath it. Going down a size is not always possible for tall folks. This vest is cut too generously, especially in the abdomen. Am going to return this vest in favor of
Mountain Hardwear Mountain Tech Vest because the reviews of that product seem to mention a closer, fitted, cut.
This visor is surprisingly lightweight. The Velcro is substantial. The color is a whiter brighter khaki color than expected from the picture but actually looks better in real life. the red letters are handsome contrast. I appreciated the other reviews about the brim length for climbing. They are correct.
Adequately shades the face and very nice color and fabric. Looks good too. Haven't worn much sunscreen on my face since getting this.
***update strap on back broke making this product one I probably wouldn't buy again
bought this from amazon as a gift for my better half, he has since gotten many compliments--submerged it in water--went hiking--slept in it. Looks good, keeps good time, cool retro styling and thankfully fit his wrist perfectly without fussing with the extra links. I think having a date on it would be good but that would detract from simplicity i suppose. Pretty heavy watch. Got it in the white stainless. Bought it first from a different store online which was a mistake because that battery was dead and the watch was defective. This one was perfect.
Got this for my boyfriend for Christmas and couldn't quite wait to gift it because of the perfect fall weather for it. This vest is surprisingly light and comes with a small bag to pack it in! Got a large and it fit him perfectly. He is 6'8 and thin with broad shoulders. The arms holes have some stretch for mobility. The pockets are lined for warmth. Several pockets (a breast pocket in and outside). The brown has a pleasing olivey tint. Looks light and warm for insulation---not sure how it would be wet. Looks great....he was very happy!
what are the actual dimensions of the pack and is it water proof?
