Others said it was "too bright". I disagree. Color is good, I love it and yes it stands out but is not "glowing" - rather very pretty and can be dressed up or down. Also, I liked that it is on the long side, so nicely comes over the waist and top of butt, even when seated, so doesn't ride up as some fleece vests do. It is very soft and fuzzy and really has a nice feel. It is not a nappy fleece, but rather flat, smooth fleece (I live in the NW and we have probably as many names for fleece as the Inuit have for types of snow). Love it. I also wore it for a week of skiing as my inner layer and preferred this to a full length fleece because it allowed more mobility under my ski jacket.

Like vests to layer to keep my arms free when horseback riding. This is a great vest, large gives enough room for a sweater under without looking bulky. Nice length, don't like too short and this sits mid hip, I'm 5'8".

I'm a fan of Mountain Hardwear, but some of their things are a bit, well, strange. This is one. The fleece is voluptuously soft but seems unlikely to stay that way after washing. The blue is so bright it almost glows. It would probably be lovely on a fair-skinned person, but I was hoping for more of a jewel tone. At 5'8", 150, I should be a M or maybe even a L, but I was swimming in the M.

Vest runs small and I did not particulary care for the matted type of fabric it is made out of. Had no option but to return this item. Color is nice, but not as fanstastic as described by others -- so, so.

I love most of this vest. It is a gorgeous blue color and is some of the softest fleece I have ever felt. My only complaint is that the material is much shinier than you would expect and I just feel silly wearing it. Unfortunately I will be returning it.
