This is a great vest to wear under a jacket as it's super thin and doesn't feel bulky under a jacket. I usually wear a large in this brand but wanted to go a size down and honestly the fit is amazing.

Awful service

I ordered this sweater & instead was sent goretex shorts. I called them immediately to request a replacement & they were unable to send what I actually ordered in place. Very disappointed in my first experience with back country, will not be working with this company again.

Unfortunately i have found this too. BACKCOUNTRY is gping the way of all companies that get too big and will be a victim of it's increasingly poor customer service soon.

Surprisingly Good Quality and Value

Not bad. Fit is good on this fast and the gray color is nice. I get extra discount from here: coupon-code.info

Have had this vest for a year-or-so now. I'm a bit disappointed. The sizing is good ... the vest is warm ... however, the fabric is pileing and the looks of the vest now is not-so-good. Would not re-purchase. Am 6'1' and 185 lbs and the fit is fine.

For the cost, and for the brand, you'd expect it not to start pilling after three wears, but here we are. It's satisfactorily warm in air conditioned offices though.

Really liked the overall fit and size of the vest. I like that is blends in well with office attire and easily works as an extra base layer for the colder days. This is not my first Patagonia product, the sizing works for me.

This was a birthday gift for my Dad, who has now said he wants it in every other color. He wears it to work over a button up or more casually around town. Super warm and fits true to size.

I have owned this vest for a few weeks . It pills and looks like it is 10 years old POOR Patagonia (recycled ) quality. I own several merino wool vests that only cost a little more BUY WOOL instead of this

Great Vest, all the best parts of the jacket (style, warmth, comfort) without the negative (tight sleeves). I love wearing this over a flannel button up when going out for a drink in cooler weather.

This vest has been worn many times and its durability really stands out. For those cold summer nights (and I can't wait for cold winter days!!), it keeps your body warm unlike many of the other products on the market. I've enjoyed having the layered look when going out, and it has attracted many complements on the classic look. Great job Patagonia, I recommend this to anyone and everyone who is looking for a nice addition to their closet!

Great product that came when promised. The sizing is perfect but wish the vest was a bit longer. I’m 6’1”, 195 lbs and large fits perfectly but would like if it was a bit longer. Perhaps a long version would do the trick.

This vest is my favorite. It's a bit dressier looking than your average fleece vest. I'm tall and it fits me well. It's warm and comfortable.
