Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lolo from Montana on Thursday, April 21, 2016I loved this vest - ordered in large - which should have fit. Turquoise color was great. Unfortunately, there was no XL available, so I had to return it!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Andrea from Fernandina Beach on Monday, April 13, 2015Just what I was looking for, great for when I go golfing, or to beach.
Reviewed by EOregonGal from Oregon on Saturday, January 24, 2015I exchanged M in indigo ink for a Lg, left in 2 bright colors. I got the purple. The waist was finally in the correct place...at the expense of armholes and a peplum that are big. The color "razzle" was too easter-egg light for me. It made me look like a flight attendant about to serve beverages. I maybe should have just kept the Medium in India Ink - better overall fit, nice color and it felt like a good little windbreaker...It was just that darn short waist.
Reviewed by EOregonGal from Oregon on Thursday, January 15, 2015Pros: 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.
Reviewed by Mrs.Radish from North Carolina on Tuesday, December 30, 2014Love the turquise (Geyser) color but the drawstring on a medium size hits me about 3 or 4 inches above the waist & I'm about 5'7". Maybe that is a normal style but it did not feel comfortable on me.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by IslandGirl from Washington on Saturday, August 9, 2014I ordered this for traveling and I am pleased with the vest. I love the color, it's a nice weight fabric, and the cut/design is feminine. I found the fit to be true to size. Another great STP purchase!!
