Warm and casual

First off I give this 4 out of 5 stars because the first vest wasn't just a second but actually defective, the fabric in the shoulders and neck area was excessive and bunched up, it was like it was the shell was too big for the liner. I exchanged it for another and I have yet to determine why this is a "second". That's the thing about seconds, its a [...]-shoot.

The first vest was the dark brown, great color but when I exchanged only the gray was available; while I prefer the brown the gray is very nice, it looks great and will be versatile. Thinking versatility, the sherpa liner makes this vest very warm. Combined with the durable exterior this is a perfect vest for anything from working outside to a fall football game. I like this much better than my usual Northface Denali vest!

In terms of fit; I'm 6'2" and 175lbs, I ordered a Large-Tall and it fits perfectly. I think a regular Large would have been too short. The vest isn't baggy, in fact I bet I could get away with an XL but I like it fitting more closely, it keeps the warmth in. The collar is great for my neck and the pockets breast pocket is perfect for my phone.

Honestly this is a great vest. High Carhartt quality and a great alternative to a polarfleece or down vest. You better act fast though, they are often out of stock!
