Women's Core Down Vest
Vest is great, but the pockets? No so...
I like this vest and don't mind the roominess, as I generally wear it over a sweater or fleece pullover. However, I completely agree with the reviewers who complained about the pocket material. I couldn't bear to put my bare hands in the pockets. Last night I cut out and sewed in lightweight flannel "liners" for the pockets (see photo) -- now my hands are comfy, too! But I would rather have not had to take the time and trouble to do this. I know most people wouldn't.

This vest is very thin. I love the color(green) but overall it is very disappointing. There seems to be very little down filling in it. Fit is ok, but if I had seen it in a store I would not have bought it. Guess I'll keep it but have to wonder about this company's quality.

I absolutely love this vest & I have gotten many compliments on it & will be ordering another one today. It does run slightly big, but I figure that's so you can layer sweaters and sweatshirts underneath, so I'm happy with the sizing. It's fairly lightweight, but it does keep me warm.

I am so disappointed with everything in my last order due to incorrect sizing information! Actually, an order I made last year was the same! In what world does an XS Petite fit a woman who is 5'6 with 35-29-36 hips?? I purchased this vest (and 2 other items) for my 22 year old daughter and they were so huge that they fit me instead and with room to spare! Time to stop trying to placate heavier women with this deceitful and incorrect sizing! That's all I can assume you're doing. I won't be shopping with Lands End anymore!

Vest is great, but the pockets are lined with CHEAP polyester material
I love the vest, but I wish Lands End would change the material that they line the pockets with. It is lined with cheap polyester, which feels lousy on my hands. I hate it. They should use cotton or even the same nylon fabric that the vest is made from.

Absolutley love these vests !
I have ordered 4 of these vests and I am in love with everyone of them. The colors are sharp and I have received many compliments. I layer them with sweaters and scarfs and I intend to order 2 more while they are on sale. Very happy I ordered through Lands End. They are very warm even here in New England, and it has been a cold one. Thanks Lands End for your high quaility

I have been a devoted fan of Land's End since the 80's, and my first LE down vest was far better than this one! I'm not sure what is happening here, but when I need a vest, it needs to be REALLY warm, like when there's a wind chill factor of 40mph in 20 degree weather. The idea of using less down to make a slimmer vest should have more stitching channels closer together to hold the down in place. Guess I should have read all the reviews. Have to return this one - sorry, LE.

Love the styling...
Got this as a Christmas gift and love it! The chevron stitching is flattering. Styling is great. It's not a bulky vest at all yet it's nice and warm! I want more colors!
