Just like the fleece vests I bought from Patagonia and REI 40 (?) years ago. Fits great and hopefully is with me for the next 20 years!

A medium is like a small

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:
5' 10"

My husband wears a medium in every shirt, and coat. I purchased a medium, and it was entirely too small. Now I’m having to pay money to return it. I wouldn’t buy this product unless you are sizing up. And returns are very difficult with this company.

Nice Green Vest

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 7"

The item was delivered free in three days in CA. Ordered the green in XS. My chest measures 35 inches in circumference. There is still ample room for a shirt and under shirt or layering. It is thinner than my other Patagonia Better Fleece vests. Stitching is nice and clean-good quality control. I wear it under a denim jacket or sports blazer. I love the fit and happy with my purchase. Hope this helps.

Not returnable.....why? I'm KEEPING it!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This one is a WINNER all around. Not too thick (heavy) nor is it too thin. Just right. Sizing at XL is just right. Color works well with most of my work shirts. It's a KEEPER! It's probably going to be my closet favorite now. The only thing I didn't like was the shipping. It took 10 days from date of order to date of receipt. Not sure if that's normal. Shipped from Backcountry as DHL SmartMail Parcel Expedited, but dropped off to me via US Postal Service.

Pretty disappointed with this vest. The fact that is was labeled as midweight, I was expecting something much more substantial. It seemed very thin. The lining on the inside was weird. I had to send it back. For the money, I think there are far better options.
