Comfortable and Functional

Verified Buyer Reviewed by The Tech Guy from Georgia on Thursday, April 10, 2014
Given that we don't really have brutal winters in Georgia, my outerwear choice is frequently a vest. There were several things I find appealing about this Carhartt model. The first is the tough outer fabric. It cuts the wind and resists permanent staining. It has a heavy zipper with outside pockets and two interior pockets, roomy enough for a large smartphone. The v-neck is low enough to allow access to both interior pockets or my shirt pocket without having to unzip it. The overall length is good for wear in and out of my car or truck. I have a longer, hooded Carhartt vest that gives more coverage, but when I sit down the combination of the length and the heavy fabric causes it to push up in the back against my neck. This length of this vest is ideal if you spend time between your vehicle and outside.

I did find the cut of this vest to be about a half size small. If you normally wear a heavy shirt and want to retain some room, you may want to buy a size up.
