I'm really quite impressed with this vest and use it often. My favorite features include the quilt lining (which is a lifesaver whenever the temperature goes below 50 and keeps my hands warm as the lining is also in the pockets) and the dark navy color is so unique and almost black so it goes with everything else that I own.
Would certainly recommend this to anyone looking to stay warm and look cool in the process.
I've worn-out about 5 of these in the last 15 years, to get an average of 3 years out of outerwear in my line of work is unusual. I wear it from fall to spring layering accordingly in the winter. I recommend this for anybody who jumps from the warm to cold and needs to have freedom to move your arms. I've tried nylon vests with down fill, they are too hot and make too much noise in the cold.
I liked the vest, but it was too small. It cost me to return it UPS Ground, so with that in mind I started looking in local stores/shops and found the same vest in the size I needed and at a lower price, plus no $ for exchange.
Moral of my review, shop at home and buy for less. I’m finished buying clothes online.
Very good except could use a couple more inches length for me, I'm 6'2" upright, more bent over when kidney flap comes up some, and it improves my looks, more rugged look. I would recommend to others. Not sure of durability yet but if it is as good as my carhartt coat, lined shirt and bibs then will be just fine.
This is my second vest of this type. I wore the first one out after several years of heavy daily use during the colder parts of the year. So glad to have another. It's a great work best and keeps me warm.
Durability and quality are foremost with this vest.
My husband previously had one he wore for several years until it was worn out and I threw it away, thus ordering another. He even wanted the same color. Carhartt quality is durable and great for someone that needs durability to last for years.
I was really happy to find this vest in this color. It was a gift for a dear friend of mine who had his for 17 years it was hard to find this color so thank you for continuing with it. The only thing I missed were the a little elastic Tucks in the back that kind of fitted it to the body. otherwise it is a wonderful purchase as his previous vest can testify it has lasted him for 18 yearsg. your a great company thank you
