Tough work vest but stiff, bunchy collar

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Alicia from Clearlake CA on Tuesday, April 1, 2008
I will probably wear this a lot when I start carving a wood sculpture outside soon. This "coral" vest is a beautiful red clay color not pink looking like the picture. It is not as comfortable or warm as my down vest but my down vest is too hot sometimes and too delicate . This vest tough. I know it will take abuse. It also fits around my rear end where usual Carhartts do not.
The annoying things about it are: It is very stiff and the collar does not fold down like the picture. It runs into my neck and bunches.not as fashionable as I was hoping . I think I may wash it to see if it softens up or I can get the collar to fold down.

The vest is a little long for fashion ...but it should be perfect for keeping sawdust from going down my pants and going to the hardware stpre ....It might be just the thing for when I teach ceramics in the chilly studio.

I am uncertain if I should recommend this vest or not but it serves a purpose.
