Too bad I bought this for my husband to give me at Christmas, 'cause I want it now! I've been looking for ages for a vest with a flattering fit that has the right pocket situation for travel or errand-running. No purse is my idea of a good day! Great layer for southern winters.

    I like the length--it covers my butt, so to speak--and the pockets are laid out very thoughtfully. In a perfect world, the document pocket would be a tad larger and would have some sort of closure at the top, but that is nit-picking, really.

    It does run large. I ordered a size large to be sure it would fit over my hips, but a medium would have worked. [My hips measure 42" to put this into perspective for anyone reading this. What the heck. I am anonymous here.] Sadly, there are no size mediums available now, so that's a moot point.

    With the fabric and lining, it is too hot to wear during summertime in a warm climate, but this will be great during cooler weather.

    I wish this vest was available in additional colors and sizes. Like I said, I love it!

    Great for occasions where you do not want to carry a purse. Pockets inside and outside are big enough for your camera, plenty of room for tissues, tickets, passport, sunblock, other stuff. Can be combined with a backpack for additional things you want to take along, but you do need to open the backpack and get things you need immediately, because what you need are in those wonderful pockets!

    Love the overall appearance of the vest, lots of pockets that are handy for traveling. Seems a bit warm on a hot day, but should be ok for where I will use it. Look forward to using it for photo shoots locally and abroad.

    I just returned from a two-week trip to Europe where I used this vest while hiking.
    Before leaving I washed it and the lining split at the seams and shredded a good deal of the interior fabric. This was probably my I did not wash it on the 'gentle cycle'. I patched it as best I could (my trip left the next day) but will need to make some repairs later.
    As noted by others, there are plenty of pockets to store all sorts of gear and that was good for hiking hands-free, but the over-all feeling is that the vest is a bit bulky--both to pack and to wear. If it was cool enough for the vest, my arms got cold and if it was warm enough for a light weight shirt then the vest kept the torso a bit too warm. I also would have liked a split at the back (although the zipper opens from the bottom for extra mobility) and at least one of the larger pockets could have been larger yet--to accommodate a field guide, for example.
    The fit is generous, as I usually wear an XL, and the Large fit o.k.--but not much extra room for my 180 lb. frame.
