Love the comfort.

Great vest. It's comfortable, warm and looks great. If I can keep it away from my wife, I'll wear it more. Lol!

Found on sale and owned for a 2.5 months

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

I bought this mostly because of the price. And the design was different from your usual multiple horizontal lines of stitching/seams. The vest has a very useful number of pockets - I use the "beverage" pockets for my phone and can stick my hands in my hand pockets unencumbered for warmth. The external chest zip pocket is nice for my wallet and/or phone. There are additional mesh pockets on the inside flaps. The material feels more durable than your average down vest and somewhat water resistant - though I have not tried to go in the rain with this. The negative is that this jacket feels and looks a bit "baggy" compared to my other vests. It serves has a good underlayer or late spring vest since air seems to flow freely thru the arm holes. I will likely use this for summer camping or hiking. Oddly, this feels among the least warm of my small collection of vests.

Super high quality vest. LOVE IT.

The best down vest have ever owned. High quality throughout. Super warm. Strategically placed pockets. Even a special pocket that can hold a beer!! Fit is perfect. Highly recommend.

Sensible outdoor vest

Works great as cool or cold weather outdoor vest, unless it's rainy or snowy in which case waterproof over layer essential. The outside material is pleasant to touch and look, not the usual shinny look. Designers have successfully resisted the EXCESSIVE POCKET SYNDROME so characteristic in vests. Rather the sensible and well-crafted pockets are among the best I've seen, especially the comfy/warming inside flannel-lined hand pockets and the handy bottle (or phone or mask) pocket perfectly placed above the hand pocket for easy access. The heavy duty zipper is an upgrade over other MHW vests. The velcro fasteners for full closure outside the zipper make sense, but the downside is their libertarian nature of sticking to almost anything else, and not necessarily the matching velcro piece. It's generously cut, lending itself to lots of first and second layering but still providing a comfortable fit. That said, it's not a light indoor torso hugging garment.

Exceeded my expectations.

As a vest person, I bought this on sale for some cold morning car rides. I love the comfort and size/amount of pockets (7 total). The vest is durable, very warm and highly functional. I'm 6'2/220 and the LG is snug but awesome.

One of my favorite pieces

This vest has become one of my favorite pieces. Absolutely love how I can layer it over another jacket and be mega warm. Love how durable the fabric is and use the bottle stash pocket in the morning to hold my coffee mug and evening to hold my beer fireside! Definitely going to take this next level and get the full jacket version.
