The perfect layer for active use on cool to cold days, in or out of town.
I have a couple of these Carhartt vests in different colors. They are well-made, with durable zippers, pockets that are usable including the inside chest pocket that's big enough for a smartphone, and windproof cotton duck. The quilted lining is warm and durable as well. The collar can be worn rolled down, or up to keep your neck warm.
The fit is made to layer over heavier shirts, so if you want a tighter fit I'd advise ordering down a size. As with most Carhartt products, they are sized for maximum freedom of movement and layering.
This item is sized according to chest measurement. If you hover your mouse over or click on the sizes the corresponding numeric size will be displayed.
Due to the nature of the closeout business, we often receive items in limited quantities. Therefore, popular sizes and colors can sell out quickly. Occasionally we are able to reorder a product, but closeout items are typically unable to be reordered. We suggest signing up for the My Updates as the best way to monitor incoming products. You will receive email notifications of our newest stock items.

Yes, I noticed that the vest I got being a little on the short side. Carhartt makes their clothing in tall sizes (Medium-Tall, Large-Tall, etc.), but I am not sure if Sierra Trading Post has any tall sizes in stock. It might be worth a phone call to them, to see if they have any even if not shown on their website.

I've never gotten an irregular garment from them. The vest I bought fit my husband perfectly. He is 5'11" and thin. I've bought a few vests and coats from them and they have all been fine.

I've been a STP customer for longer than I can remember. I have purchased 2 Carhartt vests, one wore out and the other is new. I feel this is just a simple anomaly for STP. I have purchased many items and returned just a few on account of quality. Rest assured STP will take care of you.

A size 2XL in the Carhartt vest will fit chest sizes 50 to 52. The 3XL fits chest sizes 54 to 56. With a 50-inch chest, choose size 2XL unless you plan to wear very bulky clothing under your vest.

I'm not sure if this will help at all, but I'm 6'2", 45" chest, 36" waist and the XL fits me fine through the chest and shoulders but is pretty baggy around the waist.
