Saw this nice, "cheery" two tone (lime/neon green) vest with fully embroidered white daisy on left shoulder available in womens small size and bought it for my wife.... What I got was a full lime green vest with a simple outline of a daisy, a bit larger than typical small... blah... What you see is not always what you'll get. The hand pockets are made from a light weight canvas material... hope they last. Not sure why I'Hoe didn't go with more substantial material seeing that this is where you're gonna stuff lots of things (phone, keys, coins, etc. besides your hands. Other than that, the boiled wool fabric appears to be adequate, yet my wife wears it and hasn't mentioned anything re: warmth, wind, and water resistance. I kinda still like it, but am irked.

Warm, stylish, and not bulky. This is perfect for chilly days and inside. It's not too bulky either which I love. I bought the green one (fabulous color) then bought the grey one three days later. I get so many compliments on both of them!
They do run big though so follow people's advice and order a size down.

This is my second Sierra boiled wool vest. I love the colour of this one, and the tailoring is topnotch. I expect to wear this one for years to come, as I have with my first one. I certainly would recommend these beautiful vests!

I am typically a small to medium in shirts and jackets. I ordered the small after reading the reviews. Sadly, even the small is too large, particularly in the wide cut of the arms. I will likely end up keeping it with no x-small available. Instead of being a fashionable item, it will be just oversized outerwear.
