Women's Plus Size Down Vest
Love the Malachite
Very comfortable and I love the malachite green. It's brighter in person than the color on my computer. It's lightweight but will be perfect for the chilly California mornings, and since it's so lightweight it will be perfect to pack for travelling too. Wish I had gotten more colors when they were available.

This garment is exactly what I wanted
I bought 2x because I couldn't get 1x & had the sides taken in. Fit was perfect & comfortable.probably would do that again. Love style & colour & 'particularly' that it did not have contrast colour, collar.very warm, keeps out the wind. Not too bulky. Good length for mid size per person or taller. Wish I could buy again, but colours not right. PLEASE repeat exactly with more colours

This vest is excellent quality though I find I fall between sizes as I frequently when sizing is 0X, 1X, 2X and 3X. In order to fit my lower body I have to order up one size which makes the vest seem too large on me until you try to snap it shut and then you see that it does fit. However, I would recommend more refinement of tailoring and cinching at the waist to flatter women. I ordered a vest and despite the above I will keep it as I have wanted an ivory one for a long time.

Excellent layering piece
This winter has been so cold in michigan I have taken wearing my coat inside half the day. This vest gives me a better way to stay warm. I normally wear a 14 and the size L vest fit perfectly with room for layering. Am giving it a 4 out of 5 because it either needs bigger pockets or a closure on the pocket. I tend to keep my wallet in my coat pocket and I am afraid it is going to fall out with this coat.

A great purchase
I love this vest. I got the chocolate brown a few years ago and it still is my go to jacket. I just received the red one today and it is just as nice. The only drawback is the pocket size. The pockets in my brown jacket are very roomy but in the red one, my hand just about fits into it. Bring back the old pocket size please.

a nice addition to my vest collection
I love this vest! I am between a small and medium. I ordered this in the small tall and it fit beautifully. I can layer a thin fleece underneath it, which was my intention when I ordered it. I often wear a down vest around the house as long as it is not too bulky. It is great for running errands as well. I love the color choice and may order another one.

This vest is very nice, lightweight, but warm, and I ordered a Medium Tall which has enough room for layering without being boxy or bulky. My only disappointment is that the Evening Spruce was a lot darker than it appeared online. Had I known, I would have ordered a brighter color. Otherwise, I am very happy with it.

Great Vest for the $
Bought 2 of these vests for my nieces. Very warm and love the colours (royal and malachite).

Runs small, more decorative than functional
I'm a busty 2X and although Lands End shirts/sweaters fit me like a glove, this vest was way too small.
I could snap it, but there's NO room for anything except a turtleneck underneath. I'm not a fan of down vests that just snap shut; I prefer a zipper and these snaps are flimsy, not solid-feeling. Definitely not up to New England sturdiness standards. Can't comment on warmth, although it is very, very thin.
Overall, this vest is OK for a quick throw on if you don't want to wear a wool sweater or something bulky underneath. More decorative than functional, IMHO. But not a bad value at the sale price, which is why I'll return it for a larger size. At full price, I'd return for refund.

It's almost impossible to find a real down vest that doesn't make one look like the Michelin tire man. So I was pleased with this slim-fitting vest. It's not bulky looking at all, but keeps you warm enough for a light garment. The pockets are mere hand-warmers, they won't hold much of anything. In which case, I wished there was an inside pocket. True to size unless you want to wear as an outer layer over a light t-shirt with long-sleeve top. One size up was too roomy and negates the slim look. On sale, it's a very good price.
