I love these vests and have 3 of them in different colors. I like that hay doesn't stick to the outside of carhartt's cotton duck material and the inside sherpa adds a layer of softness and warmth. They are slightly fitted at the waist which is a nice touch. I love vests because they leave my arms f...

I usually wear a size 4 in my clothing (5'5", 105 lbs). The small Carhartts would be large enough to werar over a hoodie, but I think the x-small would be more fitted. On my rame it would not hug completely, but I think it would look nicely shaped uover a thermal or normal tee.

I think they fit true to size. I don't know if that helps you decide, but I thought the XL that I got was just right for me.

I would stick to a size small. My daughter in law is petite , & I got her a med. and it 'a great fitting on her, she can thin layer or go thicker...and don 't forget with Sierra's easy exchange , if I 'm not correct it is a breeze to exchange over the phone.

I do not know anything about the size of the parka. We bought this for my daughter-in-law in XS. She is 5 feet tall and weighs 100 lbs. She can wear it over a sweater, sweatshirt, or a tight- fitting Hollister jacket. I don't think it would look to large over a baselayer on her. I have it in XL and wear it with light sweater or base layer. I could wear a sweatshirt under it and it would fit - depends on how bulky it is. It seems true to size based on the chart. Daughter in law is a 0-2, I am a 14. Originally bought the XL for room and it was too big in the chest. Returned and L fits perfectly.

Most likely. But also keep in mind that this vest is pretty bulky with the Sherpa lining!

This was a gift for my daughter-in-law and unfortunately she is out of town until tomorrow night. I will ask her and let you know.

I don't have the Camden Parka but I do have the Berkley Parka. In that I got a small as I have broad shoulders and need the room in the arms and shoulders of the small. However, I got the XS in the vest as since I don't need the room in the chest. The lack of sleeves gives me more room for my shoulders and I too like to wear my vests close and with light base layers. Hope this helps!

I bought the XS for my future daughter-in-law, and it is fitted. She liked it, and I can't tell you if it's a lot smaller than a small, just that she was happy with the fit!

No, the hood is not removable. It is rather stiff at first, so you should be aware of this as it might be in the way. Love this vest, though. Warm and longer length.

No, the hood is not removable. I wish it was. It's a little bulky back there, but hangs nicely when worn and you forget you have a hood, until you need it.

No it's not. And the vest runs big!

The hood is not removable. It's a nice weight, though, and sits comfortably below your neck.

No it is not, but there are other Carhartt styles that do not have a hood. Nice woman's Carhartts since they are shaped for a woman's body. Both my daughter and niece LOVE theirs and the hood is not an issue, it lays pretty flat on the back.
