This is a beautiful vest. It runs a little large so if you are planning on wearing a coat over it you might want to size down for a snug fit. The color is great. I found it to be rich and very pleasing. The vest is very warm so not to worn on "fence" days or you might be too hot unless you are cold natured as I am not. I will wear this vest for a long time to come. I love it!

I'm 5'6" 130 lbs. Like other customers I felt this vest was large in the torso but fit well in length.
I am going to keep it because it is so amazingly comfortable. The extra room in the torso just doesn't get in the way when you are wearing it and does not look large when you are wearing it. It is so light weight, and some how even though it feels like it weights as much as a cherrio it does keep the torso warm. It packs down to nothing which means it is going to be great as something to just through in your travel bag or sport bag. I haven't yet run it through it's paces but for underneath a soft/hard shell or wearing for a little extra warmth inside the house I think it will be perfect.

The first thing I noticed when pulling the vest out of the bag was how shiny and thin it was. VERY shiny purple. And very thin. I ordered it in a medium and it was huge. I'm 5'8" and 120lbs. and wanted to have room to layer underneath - I have broad shoulders and often need a medium in jackets. But this was way too big. I don't have any other Mountain Hardwear outerwear so I'm not sure if their sizing is just bigger or what. The fabric was also way too shiny for me so I didn't bother exchanging for a small.

I was really excited about this vest. When I tried it on, though, it felt cheap and too lightweight. I did not wear it out in the elements, but I have my doubts that it would be the piece I was looking for to keep me warm. Also, right off the bat, the zipper was broken. I'm 5'4, about 120 lbs and the small felt way too big. The color is very bright purple. I sent it back, disappointed.

I bought this to add a piece to my Mountain Hardware long sleeve jacket. I carry these in my backpack when cross country skiing out to huts. Once I get there and cool off, I often get very cold...these pieces warm me up immediately..but they weigh almost nothing!..would never do backcountry without them..
