This is a very nice sweater vest. The fit was as described and it fit me well. The materials used are very good: nice heathery gray woven wool fabric, very substantial brass zippers; and the construction/craftsmanship is very good. Although the outside surface is a tightly woven fabric, the inside has a nice, soft, fuzzy plush surface. After wearing the ubiquitous Polartec vests for years, I'm looking forward to trying this one that definitely is better looking/more stylish and, hopefully, provides equal or better warmth this fall and winter.
