Arch Cape Vest

Reviewed by EOregonGal from Oregon on Thursday, January 15, 2015
Pros: 1) "India Ink" is a nice shade of black, a warmer gray than "grill" 2) Nice light nylon material, like a rip-stop nylon. Looks good on and I expect it will be a good wind-breaker 3) Overall styling concept is nice.

Cons: 1) As the last reviewer noted, the waist-cord is placed too high. I would make that WAY too high since I am short, plus have a short torso and the waist is is still too high! 2) The chest is a tad snug. I bought a Medium since I wear either Small or Mediums in tops. With the waist riding up and the chest pulling up, I'll need the Large. (I am 5'1.5", 112 lbs, 34D)

I'm almost ready to give up looking for a vest here. All of the ones I have bought are either snug in the chest, big everywhere, or too long. I am going to try this one in the Large. Unfortunately, all the neutral colors are gone. Hopefully the purple will look good with black leggings & jeans. It's a very cute vest overall (the collar looks good & the pockets are comfortable). If you are small on top and/or very thin, go by the chart. Otherwise size up maybe 2 sizes.
