Great Vest for Layering

I got this vest for my Mom who is outdoors most of the day doing various activities. The weight is perfect for layering and that was my main goal in getting it for her. Unfortunately the medium was too big in the armpits and I am going to exchange it for a small. She is tall and thin (5'9" 130 lbs), so this did not surprise me. One thing that she loves about The North Face and that is true about this vest is the length in the torso. If you have a long torso this is the brand for you. Fingers crossed the small fits better in the arms!

Was looking for something not too bulky, layering potential, as well as something casual that could even be worn daily. This vest was exactly what I was looking for & I love it! It's very light weight & is great for a little-extra layering with winter sports since it's not bulkly. As for size, I'm 5'8", ~148lbs, ~36" up top, & I got a M which is perfect & usually get M with TNF anything. This vest isn't as fitted (ie. can't really "feel it" around your waist) as some TNF soft-shell jackets in M, but is light/thin enough that it moves with you. The length is nice & long; I have more of a bottom with slimmer waist & this vest sits well (ie. doesn't pinch-in or pop-up) at the waist. What else... it has an adjustable waist bungee, it's packable, & I'd say the pink/turquoise colors are on the brighter side (but think the colors work well with this vest). I would recommend it for sure & have gotten several compliments!
Not what expected from TNF
My wife and I buy The North Face Items all the time, however with this one we were very disappointed with. The vest has such a cheap feel and too shiny of an exterior. Honesty expected more from TNF.
