Very cute. I ordered the cosmo vest a few months ago. I love that one, but I wanted one that was a little more full, so I got this one, and I love it. It's comfy, and I love how it looks metallic. I couldn't be more pleased.

I purchased this jacket and within a few days the zipper on the pocket (left side) came off the track. I returned it, was given a new one, and again within days the same pocket zipper came off the track. For a vest to cost this much, the zippers should never fail, let alone twice. Very unhappy with the quality.

This is a toasty vest with a great weimeraner brown, shiny finish. I mainly bought it for the color and the brown is a nice one. However, the picture does not show this, but if you have the zipper down at all the inside color is bright white. I was disappointed about that because it looks really different to have a big splash of white next to your face and I imagine will get dirty easily with continued wear. Not as low maintenance as just a brown vest. The other down point is that the cut does not really highlight feminine curves. It looks pretty boxy when on and doesn't have that nice outward sway around the hips, which I also was really looking for. Would have returned it but it's getting cold outside and I do like the color. Maybe I'll sew in some darker colored fabric around the neckline.

I bought this vest for my daughter as a Christmas present. She lives in Los Angeles and says that she has already used it and it is perfect. The fabric is shiny, perhaps a bit too much, but makes it distinctive and avoids the overall flat look of regular black down jackets.

This is the perfect vest for fall! I went up a size so I could wear heavier sweaters and am pleased with the fit. I have 5 North Face outer wear coats, and this is a great addition to my wardrobe.

Amazing in 40 degree Georgia misty weather! And the blue was bright and beautiful. I'd want one in every color if I could afford it. The extra small allows for a decent size sweater underneath.

I love this vest! It's so cozy and you can wear it with almost anything. The only problem was that when I ordered it I chose the Kodiak Blue color, thinking it was black on the outside with a blue lining, but the outer color is just a very dark blue that is difficult to see in the picture. My favorite color is blue, so no harm no foul, but just a warning to others who make the same mistake.

This vest came in no time at all! I have never used Zappos before and I will always check with them first, due to the fact that they are efficient, accurate, and if you do not like it, they pay return shipping. Awesome company. Thanks!

Love it. Keeps me warm. The only thing I wish it had is a removable hood. Planning to get a different color.

Great Vest. I own the same vest in several colors and had always wanted the white one. The white is bright and crisp and looks great dressed up with jeans and a scarf or with workout pants. Also, it does keep you warm.

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my granddaughter. It is very well made and the color combination is nice. Sizing does run a little on the small side. Overall it is a great vest.

Very nice looking, a bit snug in the small, but perfect for a thinner sweater underneath! Shiny, and beautiful! Not as full as the other North face vests, but should still be warm! Great for Texas cooler days.

Bought for my stylish adult daughter. She loves it, and looks terrific in it. Seems well made and true to size. Color is more of a metallic brown than a true brown.

Love this vest. Smart looking, fitted, but not too tight. Also, not super puffy, but still nice and warm. I'm 5'3" and weigh 110lbs, I got a size small. It's plenty big, room for a sweater and fleece underneath. If you're a similar size and want a snug fit get it in xs, if you want room for sweater and fleece get it in size S.

Brands I'd also recommend: Juicy Couture, Patagonia, Fry, Vince.

I bought this vest for myself, and since my daughter wanted to borrow it so often that I ordered her one. We are both petite, but compared to many winter vests, it is not to bulky. Love it!

I just picked this up in the Black and I love it! I am 5'9, 140lbs and I got a medium for a more fitted look, I tried also a size large and found that the length was nice, but it was much too large in the arms and chest area. It is warm, but also lightweight. Now it just needs to get cold out!

Beautiful vest. The fabric is silky with a slight sheen, the contrasting color (mine was blue on a white vest) was gorgeous. It appears to run large though. I was sad to have to send it back.

Warm and stylish vest. Love the fit and look. Only drawback is the pockets are not fleeced lined like some other less expensive brands I own vests in. That's only reason I didn't give it 5 stars overall.

This is a cute little vest. The fit is snug and flattering. I ordered the weimaraner brown. I am not sure if I will be keeping it though, because the color looks much richer online rather than in person. It is really a taupe colored vest, rather than a brown. Everything else is great though. If I were in the market for another color, I would for sure keep though.

Ordered the brown in my typical size 10 (medium). The color is really a pretty iridescent brown, but unfortunately the cut is more of a slim cut. Go a size up if you are top heavy like me. And at 5'3", it is still too short for me. I love the stitching though. Wish it came in a longer version, and a bit wider of a fit.
