Reviewed by Gina from Ohio on Friday, December 16, 2016If I'd realized this was an irregular product, I'd never have purchased it. Especially for less than a 20% savings from a quality product! I was so excited to wrap this Christmas gift and was surprised to see IRREGULAR on the tag, stamped on the inside label of the vest and hand written on the inside of the vest. The word IRREGULAR is listed nowhere on the description.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Truck Driver from Colorado on Thursday, November 26, 2015This is a very suitable winter vest. The outside pockets have zippers, and are deep, but they are not as nice, in my opinion, as the pockets on the Carhartt Arctic vest (those pockets are deep and keep the hands warmer, but they don't have zippers). However, unlike the Arctic vest, this Jefferson vest zips up higher, to cover the neck, which is nice.
There are two inside pockets: on the left is a lower inside cellphone pocket, with a headphones opening and zipper closure, and on the inside right is a higher wallet pocket with a velcro closure). My favorite feature of the vest is the longer "tail", which is the cut on the back of the vest that drops down to cover the belt. This is practical for cold weather work, especially in keeping wind out when you're moving around, and it also looks nice.
As regards sizing, I bought this vest as a gift for my father: he wears a 38 waist and is 6', and size "Large" fits him well (he likes the vest to zip up snug over a flannel). If you prefer a little more room, or intend to where thicker clothing (ie, a hoodie) under and wish to zip it up, those in the 38" waist range should probably select the XL for a little more room. Overall, this is a great vest and I would buy another.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jerry from bay area ca on Tuesday, January 20, 2015I have been looking for a work vest for years. when you need a 3x or larger, it gets tough. I have had it for a month, and I believe that the best thing I can say about it is. I bought another. It's well cut. It's warm, and it's comfortable.
